Our Digital Transfer Service

Revox B77 Reel to Reel

We don’t use those plug in USB turntables or USB cassette decks that are flooding the market but use high end equipment to get the best results we can from your media. We use Rega Planar turntables, Revox Reel to Reel recorders, TEAC & Revox Cassette Decks, with Cedar Audio hardware to enhance the results of the recordings by reducing unwanted pops & clicks on vinyl, along with equipment from Sony, Akai, Sanyo and periphals from goldring, Ortofon and Creative Labs, Denon & JVC, over £20,000 of equipment in total which shows we are passionate about what we do!

There are no shortcuts everything analogue being transferred to digital has to be first recorded in real-time, edited in most cases to ensure the sound file is of a good standard, Generally you will get approx 80 minutes of audio onto a CD, more if you have the CD in an MP3 format, you will need a CD player that will manage your MP3 disc, a PC or DVD player will usually do this but not always your Hi Fi CD player.

Record Cleaning

Why we clean a record? Even brand new vinyl records benefit from a deep clean before use. The main reason being that release agents are used when pressing vinyl records in production to allow the vinyl to literally ‘unstick’ from the metal press stamps, often a residue of a wax like substance is found in the grooves of the new record, deep cleaning will remove this.

Records that have been played build up dust and debris from the air held by static over the surface, incorrect storage and handling also contribute to a build up of dirt deep in the grooves of a disc so deep cleaning will most certainly assist in producing a better recording from your records and will further extend the life of your stylus.
