I have the Connect with a turntable and amp/preamp hooked up and I'd like to record an LP to my macbook pro, anyone have luck with this? Macbook has audio in.

I think you may get more/better answers for this on an Apple forum, this forum is more about support for Sonos speakers.

That being said, take a look at Rogue Amoeba's website.

I'd think you need a turntable to line level amplifier, that will also include the equalizer needed to convert from the output of your cartridge to what the Mac (or other line level device) expects. Make sure to get the one that matches your cartridge, MM or MC type or a switchable one. Amazon would be my first stop, I've seen folks mention these amps here for turntable to Connect use.

How to record it once it gets to the Mac I have no idea but it probably won't work until you have the levels and equalization (above) matched.
