An easy solution...Tascam CC-222mkII CD recorder which has a built-in
phono preamp and cassette machine. MSRP $949 Street cost, c. $800.

If you want noise reduction...and have a computer...there are many low
cost options...however, the better noise reduction will cost you a bit.

Bottom line, clean your records and needle before recording.
