Hi folks,

I recently purchased a new Pro-Ject Debut III turntable along with a Pro-Ject PhonoBox II for the purposes of vinyl ripping. Overall I am in love with the setup. Everything sounds great!

I am having a problem with ripping though. In all my recording I have done, I have visible lines at 19k and 38k.



I initially thought the lines I am seeing were a slight hum I could hear while listening in headphones. I brought the table back to Needle Doctor where they checked it out and asured me the slight hum was normal. (It goes away when music plays).

My question is this: What exactly could these lines be? It shows up in any recording I make, even if a record is not spinning on the table. Dead silence even has the lines:



The card I was using was a very poor Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme (lol) Gamer. I figured this was the weak link in my system so I upgraded to a E-Mu 0202.

Is there a chance that these lines are created by my soundcard?

What else could this be?
