Started a while ago digitizing my music collection. The best unit I found to do the job was this particular unit by TEAC.
Teac LP-R660USB-PB Turntable w/ USB, CD Recorder, Cassette Deck & AM/FM Tuner
I dumped a lot of my older HIFI equipment due to the hassle of running a Turntable, AMP through the computer to record. This unit let's me do all that without the computer and gives you an added bonus of being able to record Cassettes. And, the best part is, it does it automatically. Sound isn't as good as I would like it from the unit itself but the CDs I make sound really good when played on my regular HIFI system.
