IMHO you need a rig with "original anyway" pricetag of around a minimum of
$5,000 to extract the best the LP has to offer. By rig I mean the
turntable, arm, cartridge, and phono preamp, and spending the money is no
gaurantee of the performance, just what money spent wisely can acchieve. A
really quite good ADC OTOH is maybe $2,000.

Here are the results of some fair testing of soundcards.

>Huh? those should do OK on ebay I would think. What movies are they?

I'll run my full deathlist past the whole group, off the top of my head I
remember at least "My Favorite Year".
