I've got about 20 vinyl records with some really exceptional music (classical and jazz) never released in digital. They're all in excellent condition. These are wonderful rarities, including the first vinyl recording ever released from a digitally recorded session.
I could rip them myself, but I only have a decent Denon turntable, and no fancy A/D converter or anything. And I want to get every bit of sonic goodness out of these records. So I've assumed I have two options:
1. Buy a Nakamichi Dragon on eBay (and an equally good A/D converter), get it done, and then sell the equipment back on eBay again, or
2. Hire someone who already has all that equipment to do it for me (and since this is, again, some extremely good and rare music, I'd imagine there are lots of people who'd love to be part of this).
Problem is I've never found anyone to go with #2. So should I go with #1, or can anyone suggest a really high quality service?
