It looks like a great thing for $700 or so. B&H Photo has it for that price if you click "give me a better price."

The only thing I would suggest is that for in-house digitization of LPs and 78s you consider going directly to a good PC with a good sound card. I just bought a pair of Refurb'd Dells for $1250 each. Add to that a sound card (which I won't--'cause they're not for sound work, though they are faster than my current computer) -- Although I've never had one, a good choice, I think, for a sound card is the Digital Audio Labs CardDeluxe for $400

Of course, this doesn't work for field recordings, but it works for the other stuff.

Figure out the workflow and see what makes sense for you. I'm in the midst of doing a migration from audio CD-R workflow to PC workflow for all my projects.

Cheers,

Does anyone on the list have first-hand experience with this item? I am interested in any feedback on this and would like any recommendations of a superior alternative (in the same general price range) for the purposes of transferring analog (LP, 78 and live sources) to a computer hard disc and the subsequent creation of CDR or other preservation formats.
