I've been reading lots, trying to find a good quality USB sound card, but I'm struggling to find anything that fits the bill, so I'm here hoping that you clued up people can help me out :)
I need something that is pretty flat / neutral sounding as it is partly for audio work with a DAW with headphones (DT 770 80), but if possible, I'd like to be able to rip vinyl from a turntable without the need for a mixer. The vinyl ripping isn't a deal breaker, but would be helpful.
I'm currently using a Fiio E07K, and as far as sound quality goes, I do like it, but the operation of the thing is just terrible, it seems like it needs a huge firmware update...oh and better quality sockets! Anyway.
The Focusrite Scarlett range looked to fit the bill (minus the vinyl ripping), but I read in a few threads on here that the headphone amp isn't very loud? I also looked at the Steinberg UR22 and that seems to suffer the same problem. This is where I need some recommendations please.
