I could not find a better suited thread. But here is my situation. Me and my friend have a simple 2 stanton turntables and a mixer set up. We want to record our spin sessions. Does anyone know of a simple device I can plug into my mixer that will record the output in mp3 format? Trying to find another way around having to buy a laptop and install software to do so. I was hoping there is some sort of apical device out there. Anyone?
Do you have an iPhone? They have small accessories that plug in for recording external audio. I'd imagine Android might have that, too.
But if you're looking for a stand alone device, there are a lot of mini recorders with a line input at various prices.
The M-Audio MicroTrack II works for what you want, but at around $150, I don't know if this is too pricey or not.

Presumably you are looking for regular playback and not DJ applications since you called it a "record player" and you're also looking for one.
With that said, what's your budget?
Do you want to just play LPs (i.e. 33 1/3) or 45s?
Do you want to play 78s?
What are you plugging it into? Receiver? Just speakers? Computer?
Do you want to be able to rip vinyl to MP3 or other digital format?
Are you an audiophile?
What kind of shape are your records in?
Without knowing any of this, I'd likely recommend a belt drive turntable, say the Audio Technica AT-LP60 if you're looking for a decent TT for an ok price. If you don't have speakers or an amplifier/receiver, you may opt for a different unit/setup. Ditto with MP3 ripping capability.

Amy, you can also check the LP thread, a lot of good info has been shared there.
Is there any way to "clean" a DVD player's reading lens? Or is that even necessary? I've purchased some brand new DVDs that won't play in my DVD player, but play fine in other players.

What's a good tablet these days?
Mostly used for web surfing, email, maybe pdf files. Basic stuff, nothing too fancy.
The latest Nexus 7 is all the blogger praise it seems.
U2: 6/28 @ United Center
Lollapalooza: 8/1 @ Grant Park
so it seems.
anyone care to post pros/cons about the tablets they own?
So this isn't so much a hardware question, but techy nonetheless.
Do any of you have your own sites (either business or personal)? I have a food and travel blog (basically scouting out all the best eateries from my travels and giving travel advice from first hand experience) that I'm looking to give a facelift and maybe even get some ads on there. I'm looking for a new web host though and wanted to see if anyone has recommendations. My research has taken me to 1and1 because I used them in the past for my work and liked them. Just wanted to see if there were people in a similar situation like me and what host you are with.
Hey Rn, did you tell them about the cool TV's that we have but they don't?
For anyone who has a retina iPad mini, do you find that it gets rather warm with just light use (ie safari browsing, mid to full brightness)?
It doesn't get HOT, but it seems warm enough to notice. It's been a while since I had my iPad 2 (sold it a while back), but I don't recall it getting that warm on light use.
Just wanna know if I should see if I should swap it out or not, or if this is just how it is with the retina displays using more power.
