So here I am looking at a collection of well over 2000 LPs. I want to turn at least some of them into CDs. I've messed with it a bit and had moderate success, but now I want to get more serious about it. The big issue, as I see it, is the analog to digital converter. I've been using the one in my cheap Sound Blaster card. Time for something better. What can anyone recommend? Whatever I get has to run in Red Hat Linux 8. For processing software I've been using something called "gramophile". It does a pretty good job of de-clicking and has some other filters which I've never tried. My big complaint is that the documentation is pretty sketchy and so I have no idea what those other filters are or how to use them. On some of my records I'd like to take out tape hiss as well as clicks. It is also hard to set track breaks on things like live recordings or concept albums where there is no silence between the cuts. I've considered just getting an audio CD recorder. Two problems with that: 1) No way to de-click and 2) Requires music blanks which are more expensive than data blanks. The rest of my equipment should be OK. I have an AR-XA turntable with a Shure V15-III and a Rotel RA932 integrated amp to provide the phono preamp and RIAA eq.
