LP to HD

The PP 3i is an update on the very successful PP 3 Phono-to-USB Preamp, offering superb measured and sonic performance. The PP 3i enables you to transfer your valuable vinyl collection to a PC or Mac hard disc drive and it features settings for both MM (moving magnet) and low output MC (moving coil) types for a wide variety of phono cartridges. There is also a line input to allow for the transfer of cassette tapes.

As part of NAD’s commitment to the environment, the PP 3i includes a more efficient power supply that reduces power consumption. We have also improved the digital circuitry and included a new, shielded USB cable, which both combine to reduce noise and improve the analogue-to-digital conversion process.

The PP 3i offers a very high quality path to converting analogue vinyl into digital music files. Unlike the ‘all-in-one’ solutions on the market that use inferior turntable and cartridge elements, the PP 3i uses your existing high quality vinyl playback system and offers audiophile quality ripping. The PP 3i Phono-to-USB Preamp offers a complete hardware and software solution with exceptional flexibility to record from LP or tape.

PP 3i VinylStudio Lite

The PP 3i comes with a new Mac compatible version of AlpineSoft’s VinylStudio Lite ripping software, in addition to the PC version. VinylStudio Lite is the most intuitive software available for ripping LPs and burning audio CDs. It automatically adds track numbers, looks up song titles (metadata) online, and offers other options for file management. Users can also opt to automatically add tracks to their iTunes Music Library. Visit the AlpineSoft website for the latest software information or to upgrade to the full version (required to save tracks as MP3 or MP4/AAC files).

M2 Direct Digital Amplifier

I have been a very happy owner of the Tact/Lyngdorf Millennium for a number of years, upgrading it each time until the Mk3 version. Went to all the annual hi-fi shows, but always came back feeling ...
