Yeah, see what Enigma posted, he's always a jump ahead. Use Audacity. I don't know about the Kenwood turntable, what I found was that one channel will come out ahead of the other but I guess you can just cut it back a little in Audacity. That turntable he posted is the one I mentioned, it comensates for hiss cracks and pops. However, don't know if you know but a Pickering sapphire needle is the best at picking up both channels clearly. Dust off the needle after every side and it should last through a great deal of recording. I remember only buying one (replacement) while I was in Germany.
I had this Amp: http://www.doebbe.com/hifi/items/carverm400a.html
Way ahead of it's time, it only used the power it needed to create the volume level you put it at. It's only problem was, at high volume when the music would stop you could hear a slight buzz. I'm very preferential to American speakers though, a salesman once told me, you buy Japanese speakers and they can't translate American music, American speakers always sounded better. I had some, oh, come back tomorrow and maybe I can remember, Altec Lansing comes to mind but that's not right, maybe Accoustic Research. I just know they sounded as good at 2 watts as they did at 200 but the Bose 901's that I had only sounded good loud.
Ah, see your pics now. Yeah, that Kenwood was one of the earlier ones, should be great with the right needle. The only problem is translating from analog signal to digital without loss. One tip, very short (less than 3ft.) cables to your sound card, even if you have to move the computer. I had to put the casette deck under the PC for it to come out right 12inch cable.Edited by BriSleep - 4/20/10 at 9:24pm
