Don't see a thread for this here so I thought I'd ask: I have a rather extensive collection of LP's of classical and jazz (1940's - 1970's) and I would like to digitize them. I have a rather inexpensive turntable to do that with. a Numark PT-01 that I can hook into my Mac and do the appropriate editing and conversion. The problem is, the sound coming into the computer from the turntable is pretty bad, and I am at least 85% sure it is the needle; the original that came with the turntable. It might be good for DJing, but it is horrible for playing classical or jazz records. Can anyone recommend a quality needle/cartridge for this purpose? I don't know where to get one and I've never changed one before (too young to do it as a kid), so something easy to change and easy to procure would be fantastic. Thanks. Most of this music comes from a couple of universities as they were throwing away (literally -- into the dumpster) their records. A large portion of these have never seen the light in any other format except their original release, so saving this music is very important to me.
