I have been thinking about buying some sort of device to digitize my vast collection of records and 8 tracks. I don't want to get rid of my collection, or stop collecting, but I want to be able to take the music with me in the car, to work, traveling, etc, on an iPod I have seen and know people with USB turntables, but I want something I can plug other components into, such as my 8 track, cassette and reel to reel tape decks. I have seen several products online, but I was wondering if anyone here has done this sort of thing and recommend a product to me.

I found this product and it seems to be able to do what I want. As anyone used it?

If your computer has a good line input and you main amplifier provides a good line output ("Tape Rec"), you can just use that combination.

If noise floor and distortions of the standard input are not sufficient, you might use a good external one (USB / FireWire) or a plugin audio card.

Ground loop problems need to be avoided, of course, similar to regular audio equipment; This means that it may make a difference which outlets your audio devices and the computer are connected to, and possibly in which orientation.

Don't use MP3....unless you like lossy music. If you have the space, rip in FLAC format...anything less and you will be missing out on the original data. It all boils down to sound fidelity and space, you are going to have to find a balance that works for you. I use FLAC on my iPhone, there are apps that will do it and not tie you down to any one vendor.
