No, the ART USB Phono Plus Phono Preamp allows you to connect your turntable to a Windows or Mac computer which will be running software to convert the analog audio from the vinyl LP to digital audio files. The digital files are saved on the computer and can then be copied from the computer onto a USB flash drive, external hard drive, or CD.
