Best way to digitize LP's

Looking for advice - I have a big LP library, several turntables and just as big CD library which i have already transferred to Roon and ....iTune... :) i am looking for an efficient and not too complicated way to digitize my LP's - I assume there should be a piece of hardware (with software) that i will need to inset between the Phono stage and a PC (no mac)? My turntables don't have built in Phono stages or a way to do it (i know there are some turntables that have this capability built in).

Thanks for the help!


@welcher Your process works, but look at the number of steps involved.  I believe the OP was hoping for something simpler.


@dadork Actually I own several lps that are not currently available digitally, therefore cannot be listened to in any digital format.  I have transferred a few using a Project Phono Preamp with a usb out , to a MacBook and then used Audacity software.  It is tedious and the ProJect is a noisy POS.  The noise can be decreased with the software but the results aren’t great and I’d rather just listen to the lp

Vinylstudio is another software product you can use to convert formats, split tracks, scan for clicks and pops, manually edit a track.  I suggest recording as DSD and convert to PCM with software.  A good job is a big effort and I think only a good job is worth doing.

Cool thread. I’m also contemplating trying this. 
Based on my research Audacity software shouldn’t be that hard to use. You’ll need a USB audio interface something like Behringer UMC202HD with rca to xlr adapters. Or pick up a used Parasound zphono with USB out.
