I use Behringer UCA202. This is USB box: one end plugs in laptop, then two phono leads to amplifier tape loop. Was 20 euros. Also has optical out and headphones so you can use as versatile interface. Has Burr Brown DAC, is good sound.

I'm kind of interested in POD UX2. How does yours sound and what program do you use to record from your turntable?

My computer is a Mac and I am using Garageband. I have tried Audacity and VinylStudio/(Trial version) and for me, Garageband satisfies my needs.

I run a professional mastering facility in Paris, and am very happy with the current setup for vinyl ripping. I use Crookwood converters, which are a part of my mastering console, and they speak to the PC via an RME HDSPe AES interface. All works flawlessly!

Just changed my E-MU 0404 usb for a Roland Duo-Capture EX. The EM-U is no longer supported by software and was a bit flakey on Windows 10 and Adobe Audition ( my standard recording software). The Roland sounds better as a DAC and works well as an ADC. It's 'only'41/48khz 24bit but I don't buy into the high sampling rate argument for vinyl :? . I'm ripping from a modified SL1200 MK2 + AT440MLA - Musical Fidelity V-LPS + V-PSU. I'd need significantly better source components to even begin to enter an argument about higher bitrate and 50 yr old ears are limited to a 16khz top end anyway........

You're lucky mate, my top-end cuts out at around 10KHz these days... :(

Hi there,

Just began to rip few Lps with the Korg Dac-10r.
DSD128 gives great results, very opened stage, detailed and clear sound.
It's like you dont need anything else, just listen musique :wink:

I recently retired an EMU 0404 USB with a highly recommended TASCAM UH-7000 audio interface:

It makes outstanding quality PCM recordings up to 24/192 kHz.

Bought an M-Audio 2496 Audiophile PCI card in 2002.

Still ripping old tapes and records into FLAC. :harhar: (but keeping the WAVs)

Now looking around for a USB AD/DA converter that suits my needs, in case my old HP workstation decides to quit, and I can replace it with a NUC or something similar. ;)

Why are you ripping to FLAC, but still keeping the WAVs? FLAC's will decode back to WAV bit perfectly.

HM: Maybe he regards the WAVs as backup - and hard-drive capacity is cheap today, so I wouldn't deem that such a bad idea...

Flac for my mobile player, and I keep the raw unedited WAV's as a back-up.

Just being "gründlich" :bike:

Yeah, I just think it's strange as I convert everything to FLAC and just forget about it. HDDs may be cheaper these days, but they are not free! :) And it takes less than 20 seconds to convert an album from wav to flac or vice versa, if needed.
