We have been working on this for the past two and a half years and it is finally finished. My tech wiz, Rhys Davies, built the whole unit himself and wired it. We had lot of changes along the way but it works GREAT and we got exactly what we wanted. S/N -95.5 dBM, Distortion .0005%, Frequency Response 20 t0 20 KHz +/- .5 dB. It is built in an old "industrial control unit" shell that we got from the surplus store. It is built using the MTC board from here https://www.ka-electronics.com/shop/.
I have a large number of reel-to-reel tapes left by my father- in-law. He recorded them at 1 7/8 (i think that's correct, lowest speed possible). Unfortunately, my tape deck, pioneer rt-909, has only 9.5 as the lowest speed. Is it possible to change the capstan (provided i could find one) to be able to play these tapes?

We have produced two promos about our transfer services and posted them on Youtube. You might find them interesting.
Here they are:
At some point the client files need to get over to the main workstation for mixing and editing.
So my isssue is, as far as i know, i cant just run a virus scan while the files are on dropbox, they have to be downloaded, then scanned.
Im not sure if i can have the nas scan the files before they are written to it.
So I rigged my turntable to a pedestal with wheels so I can roll it from location to location. I fed the phono preamp to lines in, hit record.
Looking at the level of the wave, the variance between records is quite noticeable. Remember the limitation vinyl has, dynamically ... to much and the needle will hop ...so I read
There will be no external analog summing involved, hi voltage or otherwise. So, without this step, should I even bother with mixing to a secondary DAW?
I tested a lot of gear over the last year and for a long time I just assumed that once my signal is in digital it would be safe and no quality would be lots. (Via ADAT or SPDIF)
But I am asking myself, could the audio quality of a digital signal be altered when hitting the audio interface chipset and sent to the computer and also when coded in a wave file.
If so, are some interface builders more succesfull in being transparent more that others.
Of course I know that clocks and jitters can make a difference.
