There is a pre-amp switch inside the turntable, its under the part the record sits on, you;ll have to remove the belt to get to it, its real easy,

Re: I want to copy some records on CDR but the sound is...

If you have and amplifier or reciever you can frist plug your turntable into the amp or rec. and then to your sony CD recorder and then you should be able to adjust your volume to a higher position, also you can hook up and Equalizer and get the needle sound completely out unless your old school and like that LOL. There is also another way to save and make copies of all your old and new records By using the computer and getting a good sound card for your computer unless you have a good one or even buy a expansion bay with remote control made also by sony you can digatally remake all of you albums, Well sorry to go on and on but I am really into doing the same thing , If you need anymore help Please Let Me know Thanks again bear001

What is the minimum specification I need in a turntable, to complete a high quality transfer of my classical record collection to my computer?

Beauty is in the ear of the beholder. Minimum spec? Constant speed is good, low noise, a stylus and tracking force that won't carve the edges off your vinly. Read up on various turntables and pay specific attention to user reviews. Use search engines for detailed answers.

Since every play of a record wears it a little more use the highest bit rate for maximum fidelity when copying. Get it right the first time and invest in software that can clean up problems (pops, ticks, background noise) in post-production if necessary. Multiple conversion steps will always degrade the original sound to some extent.

What I would do is digitally copy the LP's to CD raw at CD-resolution (44.1kHz 16-bit). Then work from those copies.

I can not get my Crosley CR248 Songwriter to Finalize when I try to transfer from cassette to cd. It keeps showing me FAIL....

I don't know this particular machine but here are some general comments.
Most CD recorders need you to press (and sometimes hold) the record button followed by the play button before tehy actually record anything (if you don't press the play button you will still hear sound via headphones etc. but no recording file will be created)
Does it record from vinyl records okay or is it just cassettes?
Are you using the correct sort of CD?
We use a Denon CD recorder and it only works with AUDIO CDs - computer data CDs or CDRWs will not work in it. Even if the Crossley will accept computer CDs it may require a particular format either +ve or -ve (labelled CDR+ or CDR-) to be compatible. Once you have tried finalising a disk and it has failed you cannot use the same disk again.

I have a friend who wants to convert a vinyl record to CD but wants to know how to eliminate the scratching "ssss"

This one is real easy first off make sure you use good quality cables and hook it into a decent sound card I would avoid the usb connection especially if you have a lot of other usb stuff plugged in.

Then dump the software that came with it and get a copy of "Goldwave" or some other quality software.

I use goldwave to record OLD 78 rpm records which are really bad at throwing up noise. goldwave has filters that you can apply after you have finished recording
These are superb at getting rid of hiss crackle pops and a whole heap of other stuff. Its also pretty simple to use.
I have tried other software but keep coming back to goldwave. It also has some fancy tricks up its sleeve too if you want to get creative

Trying to fix an old record player - Califone. It seems to be making a scratchy sound even though I have replaced the needle. It almost sounds like when the two wires from a speaker touch... same...

May be the "winding" on the speaker. If it has got damp at some point(you may not notice any on the casing) the cardboard tube that the coil is wound around swells and "rubs" in the speaker. Thus producing a scratching sound. Try connecting to another speaker, just to test and if it sounds fine then that is what it is.

Where can I get an old vinyl recording repaired and converted

yes it can be done i have done this many time for many people... you will need to find someone who knows what they are doing with delecate vinyl... you could either locate a specialist on the web who will be able to take the track off the record and remaster it before it goes on the cd taking out all the clicks and cracks sounds and any imperfections in the sound caused by the damaged vinyl. this option could be expensive. Just type "vinyl to cd services" in google and the search should yeal what you are looking for.


you could ask any good dj/bedroom dj you know or a friend might know to do it for you, as any good dj will know how to treat a damaged record and will certainly be able to transfer on to cd for you. although... depending on the dj's skill level he may not be able to remove any click sounds or audible imperfections? throw him a tenner and supply the cd im sure he will be happy to help!

Broken sound from cdj800 mk2

This probably has nothing to do with the CDJ unit, and more to do with your recording speed and quality. Record at either 2x or 4x - yes, I know it's slow, but you'll get a better quality recording out of it.

Burning a CD

The best way to do it would be to record or rip the record into a media player program.  Create a playlist using the songs then burn the songs to cd.

Hi, the crosley will no longer record onto any music cdr/rw. It will indicate that the cdr is blank-i know it is- then the zeros/record appears but no recording takes place. thanks if you can help.

I turned it off for two (2) hours - turned it on and it worked. Apparently this unit overheats after one session: one (1) cd-r per session then shut-down.
It is worth it, when it works, because my lps have no hiss when finalized.
