How to transfer LP to iMAC Computer

We have several LP recordings that are not available in CD format. We have an Onkyo turntable (old) and I would like to transfer my LP recordings to iTunes on my iMAC computer. Any suggestions on an easy way to do this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I use this product. It is for PC, but they may have a similiar product for mac.
you can find a digidesign Mbox for sale quite cheaply $100-ish on craigslist or ebay. they come with protools software. you plug your 'tape out' into the Mbox and the Mbox into your computer.


- the better the turntable, the better your CD will sound
- there's a small learning curve - hardly worth it just to do several LPS

it seems like it would make more sense to find someone who's got a good TT and the right software/interface who'd just do the job for you for a nominal fee.

you could put up another post asking if there's anyone in your area willing to do this.

My inexpensive solution for this (on a Mac) is an M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 USB converter and Amadeus software from Hairersoft. The converter cost under $100 on eBay and the software was $50.

But Daniel (Musicslug) is right, the associated equipment makes as much difference as the quality of the conversion. Even my little setup, which sounds pretty good considering, is improved with better cables. If your LPs are important to you, you might consider his suggestion seriously.

Either that, or use the project as an excuse to upgrade your turntable... ;o)
The very cheapest way is to use line/tape out from your preamp or integrated to line in on the imac. Use audacity or some other freeware program to record. If you have garage band I think that will record as well.
