Works great with a Mac,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony PS-LX300USB USB Stereo Turntable (Black) (Electronics)
This is a great product for its price. It works equally well with both
PCs and Macs, i.e. once you download Audacity for the Mac. The Audacity
software allows audio play-thru without using the RCA connections,
thus only the USB connection is required. Sony should provide Mac
compatibility by including Audacity or indicating Mac compatibility
by its use via a free Audacity download.
Other than a couple of minor changes, i.e. RCA jacks in the rear versus
a hardwired cable and an arm clip to hold the cartridge securely, the
unit is well designed. The provided software works well on the PC,
but the Audacity software is preferred. The unit is very easy to setup,
taking only minutes. The controls, start, stop and arm up/down, make
for a simple/easy operation.

Thanks so much for the software information. I wish the Sony instructions or the software/driver update page at the website had been so informative. I was worried I'd have to send the turntable back; hadn't occurred to me that the included USB software would be PC-only, since that's rarely the case these days.

My Mac doesn't recognize the USB device. What are you doing different?

The Mac setup requires that the System Preferences for Sound must indicate under Input;
"USB Audio CODEC" with Port indicating "USB".

I have selected the USB audio CODEC and still nothing. Does anyone know what to do?

I have done so, as well, and it isn't working for me either. What am I missing?
