Now you can easily convert all of your favorite records to modern MP3 digital audio tracks with Denon’s DP-200USB fully automatic turntable. Equipped with an internal MP3 encoder, along with a front panel USB port, the DP-200USB lets you play your favorite LPs and create MP3 tracks easily and automatically. The included PC software features Audio Waveform Recognition, which checks the first 15 seconds of each track and searches the extensive Gracenote Internet music tracks database to capture the track’s meta-deta (artist, title, etc.). The software also features Auto Track Divide, which notes silent breaks between tracks and automatically inserts a new track tag for each track (you also have the option of doing this manually). The front panel USB port allows direct connection to a PC, as well as connection to a USB drive or an external hard disk drive. In addition to the USB connection, the DP-200USB features conventional stereo outputs, which can be configured with or without RIAA equalization, for full compatibility with the widest range of audio components.

Here's how it works: unpack and set up the turntable, connect it to a sound system, stick a flash drive in the port, put on a record (LP or 45), push a couple of buttons, and you're in business. Records in real time, files are stored at a rate of 192kbps. The software for splitting files is easy to work with--however, Mac users need not apply (don't know if there's a workaround). "Auto splitter" works okay if the vinyl is pristine; I use "manual splitter" mostly to eliminate the sound of the tone arm drop at the beginning of each side. As another reviewer has noted, the Gracenotes option for naming tracks isn't much use, as that database largely covers only CD era releases. I rename files after importing them into iTunes.
So yes, labor is involved: You have to hang around while the record plays; you have to split and rename the files. Doesn't seem like a LOT of labor (splitting and renaming an album's worth of files takes about 10 minutes at most). If you want to eliminate/minimize clicks and pops, you can look online for other software.
The turntable itself is pretty basic, and definitely not built for hard use. However, it's of significantly higher quality than Ion's USB turntables, and is adequate for use within a home entertainment system. The only annoying feature is, as another reviewer also notes, the lack of a tonearm lever.
I'm perfectly happy with my purchase. Again, it's not for high-end audiophiles or club dj's, but if you just want to port your vinyl-only releases to your mp3 player, it's a fine solution.
The Trans Music Manager for Denon that was included is designed for an older version of Windows, and the supplier web address does not respond. The user guide is amateurish. On the plus side, it does split tracks. On the minus, it was difficult to discover where the split tracks were stored. The application crashed all the time when I was trying to edit the track metadata. I had to figure out an alternative method.
The Denon DP200 has a USB port designed to allow recording to a USB storage device (thumb drive). The instructions are adamant about not connecting the turntable directly to a PC USB port. I don't understand why, but it is Denon's product and I did not try to do this. To record to a USB storage device and then manually connect it to the PC port is a bit of a kludge. This might be designed so that the Denon can be connected to a sound system as a traditional turntable and as an afterthought be used to record and transfer music to a PC. I reviewed the Trans Music Manager. This is pretty rudimentary software, which will probably do the basics. The Gracenote section of the software included for track identification is pretty useless. It requires a connection to the Internet so that it can compare the recording with their online database. However, if no CD exists to compare your LP to or the CD version is re-mastered, no match is possible. Since my LP transfers are primarily Jazz which are not available on CD or have been remastered, Gracenote is useless. The USB transfer method supports only MP3 and I prefer to use the Waveform through the sound card. I did not try the USB transfer method provided by this Denon turntable so I don't know how well it works.
Therefore, I cannot recommend this turntable if you plan to connect it to your soundcard to record LPs. You are paying for a USB recording system that I consider unusual at best. The lack of a dampening system for the tone arm is a showstopper and I have reconnected my old TEAC turntable to my PC.
