This has probably been done to death on other posts but here goes.\nI have double LP of The Story of the Who, it has been played just three times since i first got it in the mid 70's. They were all made to tape and long since gone. I want to make a digital recording to put on my USB stick for use in my car. I will be making the recording on my Mac with Audacity. The actual connection from turntable to Mac is not that easy in that i have to get a USB to Phono adapter, thats on it's way.\nI know that the recording may well sound bad as there will be all kinds of noise picked up, this can be cleaned in Audacity though i am not sure what the end results will be like. I have done this on a PC with excellent results.\nWhat i would like the know is whats the best bit rate to use, i'm not worried about size of files as i will convert the files later to MP3 for ease of use.
