Arcam DV29 As Transport

Looking into adding a stand alone DAC so I can RIP my vinyl collection from the 60s and 70s. Would my Arcam DV29 function as a suitable transport,or should I sell it and move on to something more never? I would only have about $1,000 to spend on something newer please advise.

Appreciate the input.
If you are ripping your vinyl collection, what function would your DV29 serve in all this?
