HiFi-enthusiasts that are looking for an analog-to-digital converter may be interested in a new converter created by Michael Glintzer and his team called the ADICON.
ADICON is a high resolution ADC that is equipped with a built in RIAA and headphones amp as well as a SPPM, and has been designed and built in Germany.
The ADICON project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise £30,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more :
“Do you own and love these wonderful vintage tape recorders and turntables? Do you look for a link between these fantastic machines and the modern digital world? We finalized the design of our ADICON – a special ADC (analog-to-digital audio converter) designed particularly for HiFi-enthusiasts – and thus probably for you.
This technically and optically excellent designed device enables you to use a digital link, eitheroptical or coaxial, between your turntable or tape recorder and your sound system.
There is one input for the turntable and one input for the tape recorder provided. The built-in high-performance RIAA preamplifier enables you to directly connect your remote turntable.
Should you want to use your existing preamp – no problem, the input is capable of handling that, too. Then you can transcribe your vinyls to your tape recorder and listen to your recordings. Moreover, the powerful headphone output enables you to listen to tapes and vinyls without turning on your sound system.”
So if you think the ADICON analog-to-digital converter is something your audio system could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website via the link below to make a pledge from £625 to be one of the first to own one.
