An interesting new product is coming from Vestax – the Handy Trax USB Turntable Recorder. It plays vinyl and converts vinyl to WAV or AIFF up to 24bit/48kHz (CD quality is 16bit/44.1kHz) thanks to its USB interface. The handy trax USB comes with a built-in 4W speaker and offers volume controller fader as well. You can find line-in, line-out and, headphone out jacks. It was three play speeds, 33 1/3, 45, and 78 rpm. Also it can run off of batteries, making it a fun product to take on trips. It might not be something the pros out there, at the same time if you need something handy that you can use in any situation, maybe you should look into this.
You can expect a release later this year!
