Ripping Vinyl Records to .mp3

Anyone done this? I am thinking I will start looking into doing it as there are songs I want that are only on vinyl. I wonder how much it’ll cost me to get a good setup in place that will allow me to rip at a good quality. Hmm.

Yes I've done this. Do you have a laptop? It's a pretty easy setup. I have a DJ turntable setup so what I do is plug in the outputs to my laptop using a cheap little Indigo PMCIA adapter card (

Comes with software and works well.
