Req for help with RIAA Eq (ripping LPs to HDD) Answered

. I'm trying to dub/rip some LPs to digital and I think I have most of what I need (turntable, cables, sound card, capture software, encoders, pre-amp w/o eq) but I can't seem to find anything to handle the RIAA eq. I have an old stereo with phono preamp/eq, but it is not exactly hi-fi. As far as I can tell, all I need is a filter/plugin between the capture sw and encoder, but I can't seem to find anything. Any ideas? . Does anyone know what the shelf-life is for phono cartridges/stylii? I have some high quality carts/stys (Stanton, Ortofon) from the '80s, but I'm afraid the fulrums may have deteriorated. Are the carts/stys sold for DJ/disco use any good? . Anybody know of an Ancient Rippers site? On most of the sites I've found, vinyl is not in the vocabulary.

. Thanks! The junocake page uses the pre-amp/eq in a receiver, but some of the links and comments look like they could lead to what I'm looking for. I'll check further next week, my daughter is home for the weekend. Thanks again.
