I have now put together the Stanton, downloaded the software needed and started ripping some of my old records (last 6 hours was spent ripping to be exact), a damn funny thing to do on a friday of from work (not). Since my speakers are broken im ripping deaf (i dont know how it sounds untill im done with the ripp) and since many bands do one side to play in 33 speed and the other side in 45 speed its a trial and error kind of project. Anyway i compared the quality on the ripps i did and found that the mp3's didnt stand a chance against the wav formats.
I decided that i will rip all vinyl into wav in the future. This results in way bigger files, a 7'' will come to about 70-80 MB instead off the normal 10-15 MB that it would be in mp3. Since storage-capacity isnt a problem for anyone with a somewhat new computer i hope you all are on my side on this one.
If not then comment and let me know if you would like it in MP3 instead.
