RE: Get your old vinyl, put them onto tape, get the right connections, load them into your computer and produce a c.d.   Simple.   

Why add the hiss and second generation of putting them to analog? A stand-alone audio based CD recorder has the DA conversion shit built right in and makes copying vinyl as easy as making a tape. Assuming, of course, that you have a lot of stuff the will never be reissued on CD. Frankly I've been amazed at some of the esoteric things that have come out in digital format, y'know?

And MD- I think MD is just getting started, although it's not turning into what the big companies originally thought it would be, the ideal consumer format to replace CDs or tape. It seems to be growing in popularity among live recorders, songwriters, etc., being used in place of DAT...
