I have been using Audiograbber for the past few months.
www.audiograbber.com-us.net/

It's great! Also my turntable is hooked up to a Amp. Audiograbber will
separate the files and encode them to Flac. (You need to down load the Flac
encoder). I also use the Declicker from:
www.algorithmix.com/easytools

Which will install a plug-in to get rid of the clicks. To me the sound
quality is great, but I'm no pro like some on this list. At this time I'm
recording over 400 LP's.
