Technological Anachronism?

Numark now makes a turntable with a USB.

At first you might think it’s a contradiction in technology – like an 8-track with a SCSI cable, or a Victrola with RCA outs. But really, given the status of the turntable these days as a musical instrument more than a media player, it makes sense to have a USB out for DJ’s to record their shenanigans. It also serves well the vinyl hounds looking to digitally preserve their vinyl. So I bought one. I have a lot of out-of-pring vinyl that I want to digitize. Plus I needed a new turntable, and this thing was only $170 at Banjo Center!
