Just wondering if anybody else out there has used the RCA LAB-1200 Turntable. It was basically Radio Shack's war-horse turntable, and I believe even the same as their Optimus model. Anyway, what is y'all's experience with this turntable? I have been recording LP's for some time, and I think it is ok.
I am curious if anybody knows if the turntable's pre-amp adjusts to the RIAA curve or not. The sound does seem a bit lean, and I have applied a conservative adjustment of Audacity's RIAA preset equalizer to get better sounding recordings. I have found "upgrade" styli online for about $30, and am wondering if that is a course to take.
On the other hand, if I am trying to get really good recordings, should I look around for a turntable that has more features....such as anti-skate and time correction? Any hints would be great.
