Hello

I would like to buy the X10 but wanna be sure of the quality of the recording.
I would like to record vinyls in wav and I am worried if the quality of the sound will be up to the original quality of my vinyls.
Does someone can report his experience or do you know any serious review which talk about the quality of recording ?
The 3.5 mm input jack doesn't inspire me confidence...
Thanks for you help
Ysl

The Vinyl/Cassette/...(Aux recording) recording bit needs to be rendered from a good system.
Remember that the X10 records the output in the quality from your LP/cassette/audio source.
If you have a weak sound, it will record it in the container below**
X10 records in WAV with the following sample rate:

**Type: Audio Format PCM
Format: WAVE/WAV
Codec: PCM S16 LE (araw)
Channels: Stereo
Sample rate: 44100Hz
Bit Per Sample: 16
Bitrate........1411kbps

There is an option to compress it if you feel the file size is too big (Flac,Ogg & Mp3).
Remember to check the sound quality via the AUX (through X10) output before you press RECORD.
X10 will record the RAW sound, be sure you clean up the sound coming from your Vinyl, if you don't like the output.

Thanks

Almost all my vinyls are Mint and play like new.
But the fact that there is no recording level control and the "poor" 3.5 input jack make me think that the recording quality may not be up to my expectations.
I used to record them to Minidisc with a Sony MDS JB940 and do understand that the quality of the sound should not be as good.
Maybe someone can put a wav file somewhere with something they recorded (even a cd) from the 3.5 input jack....
Thanks again

The 3.5jack is akin to the sound you will hear with a 'head/ear-phone'.
As long as a good sound can be heard through the "AUX" output, then it's fine with the above WAV container**.
This is just an extra feature.....RECORDING CONTROL is done from your side.
Thanks
