I appreciate your advice. I will certainly clean each record first. And WAV format is just fine as I have plenty of storage space and would prefer it anyway. Forgive my ignorance, But I have an idea of what I would like to do and really don't know what I need to accomplish it. The ADC makes sense to me. But am I correct in assuming the signal needs to be amplified between the turntable and the ADC? All I have currently is my Tubby's 3way. Will that work? Is there a way to monitor the analog input levels in Audacity? And maybe someone could recommend an affordable ADC?
