I've been converting phonograph records to CDs by going from my stereo
preamplifier to a microphone input on a G3 Platinum. I'd like to be able to
do this on a laptop which requires a USB port for audio input. Is there a
device to permit me to do this?

There are a lot of USB audio devices. What you should get will depend

Many people here seem to like the Griffin iMic.

If you're looking for really high quality sound, you may want to locate
a music store (one that sells instuments, not CDs) and see what they
