I have been recording my favorite vinyl using the RME ADI-2 PRO fs and vinyl studio pro to DSD 256 with great results. Every time I listen to new vinyl I record it so I can enjoy it without all the hassle.
Right now they are at an all time low price.
RME 2-Channel Ultra-Fidelity PCM/DSD 768 kHz AD/DA Converter (ADI2PROFSRBE) https://a.co/d/7HelQ07
It sounds great playing back via this DAC or my DirectStream MKII.
I have a Tascam DA-3000 and have recorded some of my LPs. Thanks for the reminder that I should get back in the habit of doing that.
A great piece of kit for the money.
I have the PS Audio piece that does that. I was enjoying just doing 24.96 PCM files. I’d grab the device mentioned above but even at 20% off that’s a bit much to try. Zero, what software do you use with it? I have a favorite I like to work with.
I done Vinyl rips with a Behringer. It’s cheap and Cheezy. But it works. But you can clearly hear a difference between the LP and the unaltered Audacity rip @ 192/24. Some impact is lost compared to the original LP playback. It still sounds great. I use them whenever I’m working room at Audio shows.
Lots of people tell me the Tascam DSD recorder at 2.8MHz does a much better job and the RME you referenced looks interesting.
They make some great kit do RME
The Pro referenced above is quite expensive, but with an ADC and two DACs in one box with a DSP and a nice display, what’s not to like
I’m using Vinyl Studio Pro.
My previous setup was using the Tascam. The RME sounds exactly like the original Vinyl. I was amazed when I compared the two.
Excellent! That is my preferred software.
I’ve stayed away from buying an RME ADI-2 DAC FS because I honestly don’t think I could ever stop looking at that amazing display of metrics and controls.
Price dropped even more. Now it’s $1,604.37.
