We are proud to use professional and audiophile equipment produced by VPI, Esoteric Sound, Shure, Sumiko, Lynx Studio, PS Audio, HHB, Audioquest, Sennheiser, Nakamichi, Voxengo, Algorithmix, and Steinberg. Our equipment details

Source Media:  16/33/45/78-rpm Disc / Edison Voicewriter Disc / Cassette or 1/4" Reel Tape / CD

Target Media:  Music CD's are the most popular choice. You may also choose MP3/M4A/WMA or High-Resolution 96Khz/24-bit WAV Digital files on data CD/DVD. Your Music CD includes custom case covers with either original album artwork or your own photos and background information.

Recommendations for vinyl/cassette re-recording:  We are always pleased to convert your 33/45/78-rpm records and cassette or reel tapes, yet we suggest that you first try to locate commercial recordings in CD format at your music retailer.  These CD's are (often) made using the artists' original master tapes, and they are preferable to recording from distributed media.  If a master-recorded CD is not available, high-quality re-recording is the best option.

* Filtering effectiveness depends upon the condition of your media. You probably know that there is quite a bit of variation in recording quality, and it runs from "excellent" all the way down to "defective", especially with vinyl. Modern (microgroove) vinyl discs are very difficult to manufacture correctly, as they require a clean environment, high-quality vinyl, and are among the most costly media to produce today. Filtering software is primarily designed to correct damage to your media that occurred after it was manufactured; however, many manufacturing defects are correctable, or can be reduced. Since manufacturing defects can be severe, a variety of other techniques is sometimes required to help correct them.
