Just ran across this while wandering around the internet. If you click on "Listen to..." you can hear the records.
Like sitting in front of my Victrola, but with a much greater choice of what to listen to....
Cool link. I have a heavily modified technics sl1200 which I can play 78s on. I am going to add an output to my old pioneer amp and start digitizing some of the old stuff.
This link should take you to the recordings;
Thanks Dick and Mark I'm enjoying this...
I collect 78 rpm records and play then on a Dual 1019 turntable with a Shure M75-6S cartridge and a Shure N75-3 stylus. Whenever I acquire a 78, I give it a good cleaning with mild soap and water and a horse hair brush.
If you are going to digitize records, you don't have to run the signal through your amplifier. You can hook up the turntable directly to your computer.
I have a Mac and have used a Griffin iMic USB audio interface, a small device to hook turntable up to a USB jack on my computer. However, I later found out I can simply plug the turntable directly into the 1/8" stereo microphone jack and use the computer's sound card. In in either cases, it requires a 2 RCA male to 1/8" stereo male audio cable.
There is various software that you can download free from the internet. I use Griffin Final Vinyl which is compatible with my Mac.
I spent some time browsing the records this morning. Found a record my parents had owned decades ago. Haven't been able to find their copy of the record, but this is it. (I think it may have been considered a bit risqué for the time... )
