For LPs I use a Sony CD/RW = recorder, run through my preamp. The results have been quite wonderful. I've done = a whole series of E. Power Biggs recordings (the Festival of French Organ = Music and Music for Organ, Brass and Percussion), various Argo records of King's College, etc. Digital to digital is quite good through the computer = (Turtle Beach), but the outboard deck really surpasses everything, particularly on = LPs. I just did a CD of the Elizabethan Singers' recording "Carols of Today". = The sound was clean, clear and almost better than the original.   I guess there are various ways to successfully archive a record.   Ben Baldus   "C.

The term "codec" is a contraction for "coding" and "decoding", and = has existed in the digital carrier telephony field since the late 1950s, and has stuck with digital audio as well to this day. It describes a device that can "code" an analog signal into PCM digital data, or "decode" said data into an analog signal. The term "codec" does not, nor ever has, any connotation of "compression" and "decompression", whether the nefarious MPEG Layer 3, or any other.   And now, back to your comic books.   dB

The Turtle Beach product is barely =   better in codec signal-to-noise ratio than is a SoundBlaster AWE 32, which =   is dreadful at about 50 dB, less than a quality LP pressing! As Mr. Nichols points out, doing the properly, with "invisible" results, requires =   processing software of the caliber of the Steinberg product. Almost ALL = of the "sound card" stuff on the "home PC" market is junk, unless you get = into these types of products, thus making the transfer to CD from your LPs unsatisfactory from a fidelity perspective unless you want to get serious about it. Also note that MPEG Layer 3 compression algorithm, known as "MP3", yields "mid-fi" at best, although many freeloaders from Napster = seem to think that this is good enough for the non-existent price!   For further clarification, "Master" Haberman is again mistaken when saying =   "only top-end sound cards have codecs". ALL sound cards have codecs. = Just how does he think the analog becomes coded into PAM and thence PCM? In = CODECS!   Mr. Nichols further notes the battery operated Radio Shack preamp, the latest in a long line of such devices from Tandy. I did some quick = testing on this particular unit and found it lacking in slew rate, but found the noise floor to be quite good, at around -70 dbA from nominal program = level, and the frequency response to be flat past 50 KHz. Certainly not the best =   in magnetic cartridge preamps, but satisfactory for "burning" beat-up LPs that we all have, and at $20, a deal indeed. I did find that paralleling another 9V cell did improve the op-amp's slew rate, which really isn't a factor in organ music, where it would be in that infamous Telarc recording =   of the 1812!   dB

Lower power supply = impedance?<snip>   Yup. 9V cells, and all dry cells, really, have a much higher internal resistance (source impedance, when you're talking about AC phenomena) than =   most people realize. Compensated square wave performance, which counteracts the RIAA restoration curve, did improve on the scope. One thing I found intersting in the Radio Shack cheapie was that adherence to the RIAA curve was almost dead-on in my sample. You can achieve similar benefits with cheap, battery operated electret microphones, as well, and increasing the battery voltage (YMMV according to make and model) can improve dynamic range and gain.   However, with that Vox-Box Kraft set, it's about as esoteric a = modification as anyone could imagine! I mean, just how CLEAN do you WANT that tape hiss, anyway? However, halving the source resistance MAY help the pre-amp =   cope with the usual lathe and turntable rumble, as well as warpage infrasonics, factors that many pre-amp designers forgot about. Although these components are rarely a sonic issue, warpage consumes a lot of amplifier power, and the pre-amp has to cope with it, wanted or not, until =   it can be eliminated with a high-pass network down the line. I did note that this pre-amp was only down 1 dB at 16 Hz, leading me to believe it is =   capacitor coupled, but at a high enough value.   dB
