    As mentioned I have all the physical components and I use a Behringer UCA202 hoked up to a tape loop to digitise my vinyl to FLAC using a Windows laptop and some software called VinylStudio.

    You got me thinking and I am going to try installing http://www.streamwhatyouhear.com/ on said laptop. It does what your solution does and converts whatever hits the sound card into an MP3 or WAV/PCM stream that you can tune in to with LMS. I have used it recently in an experimental mode to stream Amazon Music to LMS.

    I am thinking I can probably digitise my vinyl and stream it at the same time.
    This is also a great alternative to the wave input plugin. And it does not require a windows pc.

    That actually works easily with any Internet Radio recording software. On my Mac I use XStreamripper. Just point it to the Raspberry Pi's Phono stream and press "record" while you are listening to the record over your Squeezebox(es).

    It is a little bit like in the old days when I used to copy records with a tape deck

    That would be great indeed.
    But question is: at what quality levels are we recording? If I understood things correctly, the stream generated by the application on the pi is mp3.

    It is mp3 whereas the Windows software streamwhatyourhear.com produces a PCM/WAV stream.

    At the moment it is MP3 at 320kbps

    Darkice does not support lossless formats, so I need to switch to Liquidsoap. I have been playing around with FLAC, but was not successful so far. First, I want to get the image right ...

    320 kBps is perfectly fine for listening to stuff but if you want to document and record/store the stuff a lossless format with built in checksums like flac is to prefer .
    Its a very cool solution to get whole house vinyl as it is , great

    Simple Windows Setup

    I ended up here as this is exactly what I'd like to do.

    I have a Windows PC that is attached to my home music system and TV. It already runs Squeezeplay and has a USB input from a Stanton Turntable for converting Vinyl to MP3/FLAC and storing them on the ReadyNAS that I use as an LMS.

    I was hoping to find a simple solution that I could run on the existing PC, that would take the USB input sound, create a stream that the LMS could play. Any ideas?

    streamwhatyouhear.com - will do exactly what you are asking for - make sure you opt for PCM/WAV output and just point LMS via Tune in URL
