    Hi,

    I had been thinking about getting a CD recorder for archiving some of my old vinyl! However the thought struck me that I may kill two birds with one stone and buy a DVD recorder, IF I can copy my vinyl successfully onto a DVD disc?

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers

    Yes you can.

    Also as the audio bitrate stays the same, you could put up to 6 hours on a DVD/RAM.

    Maybe true, but its not all you need to know. I wouldn't do it.

    Yes you can record audio, but the DVD standard means this will be compressed Dolby Digital 2.0, and a CD recorder would do a much better job.
    Some DVD players do allow you to record PCM audio instead, but not all, and usuall its only available in XP mode where you can only get 1 hour on the disc anyway.

    For the record, I've owned a Pioneer PDR-509 CD recorded for several years and it's a great piece of kit.
    You can now get its successor, the PDR-609 which has a better analogue to digital converter and other improvements, from Richer Sounds for about £150.
