Newb question. I have been thinking of getting a turntable to convert my extensive vinly collection to digital. I tried to use my old Yamaha turntable (ages old) with a analog to digital converter and was disappointed with the results generally and especially with the clipping. Has anyone used this for vinly conversion and what are your thoughts on the turntable?
I haven't used this for a/ d conversion but it should be perfectly fine. There are steps you can take to avoid clipping. Ensure the vinyl is as clean as possible to avoid pops and clicks(as much as cleaning the vinyl will help in this regard). Turn down the gain on your input device. Consider recording in 24 bit as this will give you a greater dynamic range than recording in 16bit thus giving you more headroom to avoid clipping.
