  • Best Answer:

    Note that you'll need to use a pre-amp if capturing from turntable. The signals are too weak to do basic line-in recording. If you're just interested in capturing audio you can just run RCA out on your device to the 1/8" stereo "line in" on your computer & record using Garage Band, or any other audio recording software. Adapters are cheap.

    USB turntables are another option.

  • while i haven't tried this yet, i was told by an Apple employee today that you can capture audio only by simply using the audio cables.
