ART USB Phono Plus v2 USB Audio Interface with Mic Preamp
The ART USB Phono Plus 2 phono preamp lets DJs and vinyl enthusiasts digitize their vinyl more easily and effectively than ever. USB connectivity streamlines the connection to your computer, while an RIAA-type preamp boosts the phono signal to line level for connection to analog mixers.

A low-cut switch also helps eliminate rumble and wind noise. It's all housed in a rugged metal case, so you know the ART USB Phono Plus 2 is built for the long haul.

Straight forward bit of kit this, no fussing about with drivers and all that malarkey and sounds great to me. In all honesty, 4.5 would be closer to the mark due to the omission of supplying a wall power supply (as the original version had) , but a minor quibble in the great scheme of things. Paired with open source and free editing software like Audacity this equipment delivers the goods. I recommend it to you.
