Yes you can! - with caveats...
I see this question answered wrongly so meany times on Amazon that I thought I should address it. The bulk of this review is to answer that question, and it applies not just to this turntable, but to all of the class of turntables with built-in amps and speakers.Time after time time I see this question answered 'No', but that is simply not true. You can! I will explain in a second, but first let me offer a quick review of this particular turntable.
I bought this from Fred Myers on sale branded as Craig. As far as I can tell it is actually a Shenzhen Jiayinking model JYW-K0708. Whats in a name? It is part of a whole line of nostalgic turntables that have built in amps and speakers that let you listen to your old records, and in this model, cassette tapes too. I bought this because I have a bunch of old alums, including some bootlegs of live performances from the 70's that simply are not available anywhere else. This product not only allowed me to listen to those old records, it let me transfer them to digital copies on my computer. Sofar for me, I have so far had great luck. None of of old records have skipped even once. The bass seems a bit lacking, but this is a budget turntable, and you do get what you pay for. If you are an audiophile this is not the turntable for you, but somehow I imagine you already know that.
This turntable met my expectation, and has so far exceeded them, hence the 5 stars.
Now to the reason I am writing this review: "Can I recorded my old albums to a computer?"
Yes, yes you can! Don't listen to the people who think it HAS to have a USB interface to able to do this. And don't pay attention to the answer on this page, The RCA jacks are not going to work - use the PHONES JACK.
It takes a bit of work, but as I just discovered, it is work that is well rewarded. I just recorded one of my old albums from an obscure English band from the 60's called The Beatles. They had a member named John Lennon who had a remarkable expressive voice, and my recordings capture that voice in ways that I had forgot. It is cool to really listen to your old music. :)
This is just to point you in the right direction, and let you know that your really can use this turntable to make digital copies of your old albums. I just did it, and it is awesome... :)
Your computer needs a line-in plug or even a mic plug. If you do not have the 3.5mm audio jack on your computer and only USB, then you can not use this turntable to record music to your computer.
Most new computers will have a multi-function audio input plug that will notice when something is plugged into it and ask you what it is. If there is a choice for line in, pick that. Next plug a 3.5mm patch cord into the headphone jack on the front of the turntable. You will need a program like Audacity, which is free. Adjust the volume on the turntable until the sound meter in Audacity peaks almost reach the top. With a turntable like this it will be hard to record each individual song, so record the whole album and use Audacity to separate them out later.
Audacity is going to record them as wav files or it's native .aup format, which get big fast. Try setting the recording at about 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit and than export it to an mp3 at 320 kbps KPS (iTunes are 256 kbps).
The RCA plugs on the back are not going to really work without a pre-amp. That is why I recommended the headphone jack. But if you happen to have a pre-amp, you can use that with probably better better results. This is a cheap turntable with a cheap amp, but I think you will be more than happy with the songs it records.
I hope this helps. I see this question answered wrong so many times I thought I would add my two cents. :)
This is where the fun part started. I purchased the 2yr Canopy Protection Plan with the product, so I called them up. They told me that the 2 year plan doesn't kick in until the Limited Product Warranty ends in 1 year. Canopy was very polite and forwarded me to Sylvania.
I'm now on the phone with Sylvania. They tell me that this isn't their product (despite the big SYLVANIA letters on the front of the turntable, not pictured here), so they forward me to a number for 'Curtis International' (http://curtisint.com/).
Curtis International turned into a frustratingly funny conversation. I gave the individual the model number and told him about the turntable skipping. He read the product name back to me and I confirmed. He kept asking me to check the CD's. I corrected him and told him that it was just the records, as previously mentioned. He then asked me to "grab the remote for the DVD". Spoiler Alert: There is no remote... or DVD player. Then I realized it: This guy didn't know the difference between a vinyl record and a Compact Disc. The funniest part: The person told me to push the On button (It's a volume knob) and leave it on for 5 seconds... then turn it off and let it sit for 30 minutes... this would reset the product and if it still skipped, to call back. What exactly is this reseting? Was he reading from the wrong manual? I questioned him... and he hung up.
I called back and talked to a female this time. She continued to ask about the CD's. At this point, I just wanted to get rid of the product, so they told me I could return the product to be fixed but I'd have to pay the shipping as well as include a money order of $7 to cover the cost of insurance and the return of the product... SAY WHAT?! I just purchased a $7.99 2-Year protection plan, and now I have to pay to ship this faulty product to be fixed AND for it's return (which at this point I don't even want).
LONG STORY SHORT, I'm going to let this turntable sit on a desk for one year as a cute ornament until the Canopy Protection Plan kicks in. Every once in a while, I'll pop the only cassette I own into it: The soundtrack from Roadhouse. Then, after the one-sided Curtis International warranty is up, I'm booting it out of my house and getting a real turntable.
Awesome. Worthless. $70 down the drain. Sylvania says to get with Amazon. Amazon says nope get with Sylvania.
