Conclusion

I loved what the ADC1 did for my vinyl recordings. At this point I don't want to be without it so I will look into buying this review sample (I've been upgrading my systems a lot lately so its getting kind of painful pocketbook wise). This little gem provides grain free, fatigue free recordings that I crave. There are other computer sound card solutions, at prices comparable to the ADC1 that I haven't tried so this is by no means a comprehensive review of the options available but, the ADC1 is portable, it looks great in either my main system or I can take it upstairs to my regular vinyl recording system next to the computer. A better soundcard would fit only the latter option. With the ADC1 I know that I will get a recording that I really want to hear, not something (MP3) that I have to endure. Recommended for vinyl nuts who want their bits as well.
