A. Not if you expect great results. Phono input on a stereo system adds a special EQ to the signal, as well as "Pre-Amping" the signal. For good results you’ll want to plug the turntable into a regular stereo system, and then take a Line-Out from the stereo to the Line-In on your computer (for potentially better results you can use a USB or FireWire interface instead of the Line-In).

For more info about turntables and GB read the full length All About: Transfering LPs, there's more info about turntables within that article.
