The really great features to take note of
with the Transcriber II are, I believe, the ultra wide speed range, wide arc
manual tone arm and built in phono preamp.
The wide arc of the tonearm makes playing
very small records like "Little Wonder" discs a trouble free affair. Many
manual tonearms have "stops" that prevent reaching this far, and of course,
automatic tonearms will return long before the record is over.
The Built in Phono Preamp is great 'cause it
lets you connect the Transcriber II directly to a sound card or into the AUX
input of the stereo or directly to a tape or CD recorder. It has a bypass
switch if you want to use your own phono stage.
Another neat feature is the variable speed
which gives 16 to 98 rpm . That's more than enough change to cover nearly any
important to note that the Transcriber has no cueing lever .
The KAB Transcriber comes
with standard RCA style connectors. Some computer sound cards will require RCA
to Mini Stereo cable adapters. Check with your computer
