You can't directly play your turntable through a computer. What you can do is connect it into the microphone jack, then record the sound on the Mac using software such as Audacity or any recording software that you have, then save it as a mp3 file. That's how you can directly convert your vinyl to mp3.

I'm guessing it's because this is a stereo component (not a computer accessory). The turntable requires amplification, which most computers don't provide. You can still use the turntable, but you're going to need an amp. Once connected to an amp, you can run a cable from the amp's headphone jack to the line in on your Mac.

It is mac compatable. It is any compatable. The turntable is only sending an analog signal. You will have to have it plugged into an input for your mac to hear the sound and play it for you. This question is very vauge I need more information on how to answer it more fully.
