I have found WaveRepair (www.waverepair.com) to be a useful tool for
de-clicking, although the process can be time-consuming. It's shareware,
too, developed by a fellow enthusiast, so you can try before you buy.
Rumbles may be a different story, however.

I agree about ripping. Also the only benefit of real-time streaming is
having the deck in a diff place to the player. With only 20 mins of music
per side, you will be doing a huge amount of running back and forth!

I have ripped quite a bit of vinyl and haven't found a great tool for
removing clicks and rumbles. You seem to take out great chunks of frequency

range. I use tools called LPRecorder and LPRipper to record the album to
WAV split it into tracks and then spawn LAME to encode.
