Hi All,

I wonder if you can help.
I have recently registered with HA but have been reading the forums for months.
Very interesting and informative.

Being a recovering so called 'audiophile (fool)' I think I have at last found some sense in the real world!
But thats a whole other story for a different thread!

I have a collection of some 2000 LPs that I want to archive to digital.
Now I release that the topics of 44/16 v 96/24 has been widely discussed but just to be clear and please
correct me if Im wrong on any of these points;

- Set the phono amp output to produce a max peak volume just below ADC clipping to maximise ADC coverage?

- 16 bits is more than enough, 24 bits does not produce a more detailed rip?

- Would 24 bits needed if I want to use declicking functions and rumble filters?

- If I always set the ADC input correctly normalisation should not be necessary?

- If tracks do need normalising to say -3db what does 24 bit over 16 bit prodivde?

- The noise floor is not lower with 24 v 16 bits, I dont think I understand the concept properly yet?

- 96K rather than 44K is worth doing for capture as it pushes any anti aliasing well out of the audio band.?

- There is no point in having a final cleaned corrected file greater than 44/16 as there is no audio benefit?

(BTW Im using a great software package called Vinyl Studio!)

Thanks for any comments,
Matthew

Great Advice!!

Ive learnt more from this forum than any other source especially manufacturers websites!

The quality of replies is very erudite for any digital newbie.
Hopefully anyone similar to myself looking for answers on the basics would find this thread extremely useful.

VinylStudio is a great package and now offers IIR filters for any user audio requirements. The developer Paul is extremely responsive and strives to keep it the leading Vinyl ripping tool folowing user input. Its nearly an order of magnitude cheaper than the package I was looking at Im sure you know which that is...

Its also sparked my interest in digital audio electronics!
I will be getting my dusty copy of Horowitz and Hill off the bookshelf.

In conclusion then from what Ive gathered, as far as hires downloads etc are concerned it is a marketing ploy and what we really need is a better quality audio master in 44/16 rather than some heavily compressed rubbish that sometimes ends up on the final CD?

Another question maybe for another forum is;
How important is Jitter in effecting things in audio? a lot of DAC/ADC make a big deal about jitter is it really that much of a problem and consequently charge the necessary money?

This has been discussed numerous times, which you will find when you search. Also, it is bad form to ask an unrelated question in someone else's thread, and you are much less likely to get the answer that you are looking for.

Thats a bit rude isnt it?
Especially after all the really good advice and useful replies people have offered?
Re-read the mail I sent.
You can see its a thread I started and its a 'rhetorical question' in which I stated 'Another question maybe for another forum is' and was planning to do that!
