Great little piece of gear

Levels are pretty hot coming form this interface, even when configuring the driver and system exactly as described in the manual. Input on your recording software must be reduced to a very low level with good results. I haven't tried going -6dB on the Phono Plus's trim and boosting the level in the software yet since results have been great so far.
My only concern is that I found the Soundsaver Express software to be less than instinctive, so I am using the good ol' Audacity freeware that I am familiar with for recording. Maybe when I have some time, I can learn to use the Bias software.
All in all, I am quite pleased with ART USB Phono Plus. close [-]
