calum, scotland

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sounds great - using a Sondek to record vinyl for the car/posterity and the quality is great. Sound out via the computer speakers, but 'monitoring' sound during recording needs phono connection to an amplifier and speakers - limited where I could place it. Lost one channel - need to ensure the phono connections are VERY firmly connected. Small and good build quality.

Peter, Surrey

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Does exactly what it says on the tin!. Not only works perfectly as a USB input device for transfering your old vinyl records onto your PC but it is also a great phono pre-amplifier for connecting your turntable to convential amplifier (via phone plugs). It sounds significantly better than my old dedicated Rotel phono pre-amplifier and will be replacing it just as soon as all the vinyl has been copied to the PC.
Bad points:
None.

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
clean sound when it doesn't clip
Bad points:
overamplified resulting in unacceptable clipping; thoroughly unhelpful "support" who didn't understand how their product worked, for example, suggesting that the pc hosted recording tool could be used to attenuate the input signal, when actually the a/d conversion has already taken place in the Project product !

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up and I'm very happy with the quality and sound (although I would not class myself as an audiophile).. Good quality connections.

Output to USB was very easy to set up and worked exactly as described.
Bad points:
No on/off switch so it's either on all the time or you have to unplug it.
