When I'm recording, I find that there is a delay between the needle 
"talking" and the output of the speakers. Thus, I will always monitor 
directly from my amplifier to avoid the echo effect. I don't know if the 
same delay would show up with an USB connection-Mickey Clark

As Lou points out: "Cheapies are called record wreckers by some of us."

My children & I have determined that USB turntables tend to have a
lesser quality through the USB port than an analog setup. Of course,
with an analog setup, the argument begins at which preamp is the best
sounding. But, I digress. I can't comment on a Bluetooth setup because I
haven't tried one.

I did write about this:
