However I noticed a bit better details in the recordings. Since then through 200 and now 400 I have sorted the mains pretty good so perhaps it is time for another go at 192. Will try tonight.(12-Aug-2014, 18:30)adstew Wrote: Am guessing we are all in the right range at -40 to -20.
Adding to this at the risk of going slightly off topic - I am currently using the trial version of Pure Vinyl to digitize some albums. The meters on the Dev show very low noise levels when on the phono input, -80 db range. When I look at those levels through my Mac Mini they go to -55 db. This is beyond the level Pure Vinyl suggests for recording (-70 or better). I am guessing the issue is with the mac. Sent a note to Pure Vinyl and will let you know what they say. Anyone else experiencing this?
I haven't tried using pure vinyl but I have very low noise floor, just a couple of bars in the devialet meter and I am using 192/24 instead than 96 as suggested. I did a bunch of tests and I found out that even if introduce a bit of noise there is a wider range at 192. Did anyone else tried?
