NO NO NO

Using the mic input on your laptop is a big NO NO, formula for sheety sound and if your laptop is not equipped with an Aux Input then go USB or Firewire or use a desktop souncard instead if you want listenable clips

Either use a USB RIAA Preamp directly from turntable directly to your lap/pc

or

Use any good quality Stereo Receivers Tape/Line RCA out's to your PC Soundcard/Laptops Aux Input using the RCA to 1/8" TRS Cable from Radio Shack.

From there you can use any Application that allows you to choose the Input Path i.e. your Sound Mixer/Sound Cards Aux In.

I use Musicmatch Juke 10, I saved the install after Yahoo ended what was one of the best Jukes with its selectable input mixer etc.
