Answer:
For speakers to work directly with the turntable they have to be powered speakers - the kind that have to be plugged in to electrical power as well as to a sound source. Otherwise you'll need a receiver to connect between the turntable and the speakers

Answer:
Basically any receiver/amp will work with this unit as long as the inputs are RCA jacks and that's pretty much all of them. Here's how it breaks down. All turntables require a pre-amp before the signal goes to the main amplifier. Most modern receivers do not have a dedicated slot for turntables any longer.

All turntables require a pre-amp before the signal goes to the main amplifier. Most modern receivers do not have a dedicated slot for turntables any longer. So most turntables include the pre-amp built in. The switch for the pre-amp is on the back of the Audio Technica.
* So if your receiver has a setting for "Phonograph", "Phono" or "Turntable" you're good to go. Just switch the pre-amp Off on the back of the turntable.
* If your receiver doesn't have a setting for "Phonograph", or one of the a fore mentioned, then turn the switch On. That's it. Simple. Just be aware that should you buy a receiver without a "Phonograph" input you will loose the slot for whatever peripheral should go there. In my case I use an Onkyo CR-315 Shelf Unit. I plug my Audio Tecnica into the "Dock" slot. This is to be used with a special docking device that allows you to plug in an iPod. I know longer have this device, so no harm no fowl. If however I did have this device and needed to use it, I would constantly be switching between these two devices on my receiver. So just make sure you have enough inputs to avoid this potential hassle.
Really, the only thing you need to look for on a receiver is to make sure it excepts inputs through RCA jacks and again, that's pretty much the standard. As to brand, that's up to you as far as your needs and budget. see less

Answer:
You do not need an amplifier if you are using computer speakers, or other speakers that have a headphone jack kind of connection. The turntable has a built in pre-amp, so you don't need anything else. There is a switch on the back that allows the turntable to be used without an amplifier.

I have a simple set of Logitech computer speakers that work fine. It would be good to get a cheap amplifier if you are using bookshelf speakers. see less

Answer:
Richard, generally, as I understand it, yes. You will be able to record your records to your PC hard drive. From there, you can convert your music files to whatever formats you prefer. For iTunes, I believe you can import them into iTunes and iTunes will automatically convert them to iTunes format as you import them… see more Richard, generally, as I understand it, yes.

If there is a more direct method to record them to iTunes, I'm not aware of it. Hope this helps! Skip see less

Answer:
Hi, this does not have built in speakers, it comes with cables that you can plug in to other ones. I would say is a matter of taste. Do try to get some high quality speakers or headphones to take advantage of the HQ audio that you'll get. I have an Onkyo THX receiver and I have to admit that it sounds amazing!

Answer:
The unit comes with Audacity shareware/software but will work with most audio software. You can manipulate the files as wave, mp3 or as needed for your purpose. Save to file then load into whatever you require.

Answer:
