PC based music juke box from vinyl - software recommendations

Folks,

Newbie type questions. I am looking to convert my large stock of vinyl singles (approx 600) and lps to pc based format (e.g. MP3) so that I can play them back over my hi-fi from the pc (using appropriate hardware of course).

Can anyone recommend any particular software packages for:

a) recording the vinyl to the pc (presumably in WAV format)

b) converting the WAV files to MP3 or other format (is this ripping?)

c) playing back the finished article.

I am looking for high quality conversion and will be buying a new PC with lots of disc space to hold the music.

Any help would be appreciated.

Go for an older copy of Sonic Foundry. The recordings are excellent and you have total control. You can also get filters that are fairly non-intrusive, yet clean up deep scratches etc. I say an old copy, as the newer versions are prohibitively expensive. If you can't find/cadge a copy then go for neros kit. It's not as good, but it works.
