Yes and its legal as long as you own and have purchased the songs digitally. Aware of the legal situation regarding the reproduction of copyrighted music, that in accordance with the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992, customers would be allowed to make non-commercial copies of any legally purchased recordings. So it is totally legal of you to put that song you own that never made it onto vinyl, but be able to have a copy to play yourself. So as long you are not planning on selling you are allowed to make 1 copy for yourself of any recordings that you own.
