Need help integrating Turntable into Pro Tools studio... what do I need to connect?

This may sound stupid, but it's seeming harder than it should be.

First, how are you guys recroding your vinyl into your DAWs?

Second, here is what I have (and where I went wrong and need help)...

I have:

Technics SL-1200

Brand new Denon DL-110 cartridge

Radial J33

All this is meant to route into my Pro Tools rig (Burl converters).

NOW... I guess the Denon Dl 110 is a "Moving Coil" cartridge, which supposedly doesn't work with the Radial J33 (a unit designed 100% as a preamp to interface for turntables... but I guess only for Magnetic cartridges)

So, if the Radial J33 isn't the right tool, what DO people use? (looking for a studio / pro quality piece, not just consumer stuff... but hey, whatever sounds best)

This is all getting too confusing... how hard can it be to record vinyl into Pro Tools with the cleanest / best audio path possible (and I'm not talking that BS audiophile consumer stuff... just pure no-nonesense studio gear)


Help! (please)

Thanks,

I just use my DJ mixer, as do many people but I have heard good things about the Radial J33 as well. Many DJ's use this over their phono preamp in their mixers and just use the line in. To me it's more of a question of changing the cartrige, or changing the phono preamp.

it maybe very wrong (especially in your scenario) but I've used a matched set of mic pres straight from a stanton dj turntable and it sounded pretty fantastic, i'd assume its magnetic though
