I've actually been doing this on & off for the past year. I've got in
excess of 400 classical albums that I'm putting to CD.

I've been using Audacity (  for
recording & editing the captures to remove the snap crackle pop that is
inherent in some of my "too well loved" albums.

hardware is an Audio-Technica PL-50 turntable (it's got a nice onboard
pre-amp) & an Ortofon NC cartridge into the line in of a SoundBlaster
Live card.

K3B worksforme to record the cleaned up audio to CD.
