    Would this be the best way to record vinyls to wav?

    If so/not what would the best way to do it without having to buy anything lol??

    And does anyone have any tips/advice on making the rip sound as good as possible?

    Cheers :)

    Download Audacity. Its free, provides good MP3 encoder rips and easy to use. Just plug your mixer into your computer, use it as a preamp, make sure the levels are flat, and dont redline.

    The condition of your styli and carts make a massive difference to the quality of the recording too. Make sure you record the vinyl rip with new styli.
