I am looking for a CD burner that can be hooked up to my component audio system. I need to put some old records onto CD-R format. Is this even possible? What equipment will I need? What system do you use?

The component you need is called a stand alone CD recorder (or burner). You can hook it up to your stereo receiver.

I have a Marantz Professional CDR-631 single disc standalone burner. I don't use it very much anymore because for the last several years I have mainly used my PC burner instead. But I have had the Marantz for at least 8 or 9 years or so and it is a great machine. Don't know if Marantz still sells this model though.

You can also look for Tascam CD recorders. I have never owned one of those but I've heard they are great machines.

Or you can simply plug your system into your computer. It does require some software. You can expunge all the pops from the record and turn it into an MP3. Then just burn a copy as you normally would.

Here is an ongoing discussion which can answer all your questions:

It looks like CD recorders are on the way out. There are few of them out there, and they are priced for professional use.
As it turns out, I have Roxio Toast 6 which comes with software for copy cassettes and LPs. Now I need to buy the equipment to hook RCA cables into my eMac. What do I look for?

I think following URL will help you.

Connect cable from AUX pin of your amplifier to eMac sound port.

here's another option - it's what I use and it's great: the Griffin iMic. http://tinyurl.com/a4x5a

comes with software for converting vinyl - putting in the track markers and all that. It's about $30. It plugs into USB and has input and output 1/8" jacks, and an adapter to accept two RCA's direct from the turntable or any audio source.

the AUX is generally a input not an output.

The tape out port is more appropriate.

Thanks for some good ideas & the reference sites. I have been using a Harmon Kardon stereo component standalone burner. I've had good luck with it.

I have a new computer so I'd like to try software on that. Perhaps the results would be even better for transferring lps & cassettes.
