Note: None of the above LPs are for sale. Nor am I prepared to "share" FLAC, MP3 files or CD copies once the ripping process is complete. So please don't bother asking.

Analogue to Digital LP Transfer

I've decided the time has come to finally start ripping my collection of LPs into lossless FLAC audio files using my beloved Rega Planar 3 turntable and Audio Dynamics Corporation ADC LMF-2 Tone Arm. It will be a long and arduous project, but one that will let me relive many great memories and have the music available wherever I am.

In order to make sure each record is as clean as possible before doing the analogue to digital transfer, I'm setting up a 6 litre capacity ultrasonic cleaning station. Clean for 10 to 15 minutes in a solution of 90% distilled water, 10% Isopropyl Alcohol, with three drops of Kodak Photo-Flo 200 at no more than 40 degress Centigrade. A micron filter setup will be used to keep the fluid clean.

Only when the LP has been cleaned to better than new will I attempt the analogue digital transfer.

I'll put the clean LPs into new inner and outer record sleeves if necessary.

My Amber Phonostage MM will handle the phono equalisation. The plan is to use a HRT LineStreamer + unit as the analogue to digital converter for transfering LPs and cassetes. Will probably use the Audacity, Diamond Cut Audio Restoration Tools or Vinyl Studio software to get the output cleaned up and into lossless FLAC 24 bit 96 kHz audio files.
