...to "rip" (I know it's not the right term)
greynol I want the beats to stay aligned. I'm going to use the files for djing, I need the pitch to stay at 0% so that I can play two records at the same time. If the beats don't stay aligned to a grid I can't mix the tracks. It's all about beatmatching.
In the brave new world, reducing the tool set of abstract thinking is a favored method of mind control. Without the ability to conceptualize differences, one is more easily led by the nose. Without an adequate vocabulary, clear thinking about anything not immediate to the senses is not possible: fuzzy words, fuzzy thoughts. Fairly often, use of the slang term “ripping”is an indication of confusion about what one is trying to discuss.
I wasn't sure if the Technics are good cause I've seen a couple of modifications done to these turntables. For example removing the strobe light...
Right now I don't have a ADC. I will buy a good one :-)I do have a Lavry DA11 but it's a DAC eheh. I don't know if high-end converters are really worth it. But I'm willing to spend 500-1000 euros if needed...I also have a ECHO audio fire 2 card. It has "line inputs". ...
the Technics 1210 MKII isn´t suited very good for HiFi - but yours is very much!.

Seems weird, since the most advanced changes between MK2 and MK5 are increased range of antiscating settings (0-60mN instead of 0-30mN) and the addition of pitch reset button instead of slider "dip" at 0%. Otherwise it's all the same - at least that's what people say. (I'm just going to buy Technics/Panasonic 1210 and rather spent difference on better cartridge than buy features I'll never use.)
I've heard rumors that Matsushita doesn't even manufacture the bearings anymore - the tooling for that has been spun off to a third party. At this point, manufacturing variations are probably far higher in magnitude than the differences between the 12x0 models in terms of audibility.
“I have to say the Rega upgrades turn this humble arm into a real Giant killer. Gone is the rather grey, sterile sound of the cooking Rega. Instead, tonal colour is fresh, dynamics have great speed and impact, and the sound stage is huge.”UPGRADE TO rega RB300 & RB250 - Hi-Fi World[/b]“In short, the performance boost was striking. The most obvious improvement concerns scale. With the modified arm, the stereo image is much wider and deeper enabling each musician to be placed with accuracy within the sound stage. Focus is better too and improved bass depth increases solidity and weight. In fact, there isn’t an area in which the standard arm betters the modified. Dynamic swings are faster and tonal colours far more vivid, making the standard RB250 seem almost grey by comparison.”HI FI WORLD
The 1210 is a solid performer which is let down by the poor tonearm.
I assume that blind tests are more difficult to perform with vinyl equipment.............
