Best A-D converter

Not a DAC but an ADC! Looking to archive some out of print vinyl onto CD for listening in the car. At home, of course, analog takes precedence, but on the road, I just have an awful time with the needle skipping in the back seat. Some have mentioned the Wadia 17, others the Apogee Rosetta series. Has anyone A/B'd these units for musicality? Any others that I should be considering? I know there are several 96/24 units out there, but my question has a functional limit of 44.1/16. Thanks

Hi Dynamo, hi Carl, Sorry I can't offer the kind of sophistication that Carl offers ( He is truly one of the most experienced and dedicated guys who post at this site)... but, have you considered a high end Minidisc recorder? I have the Denon MD-1000 and it was rated as being a only a hairsbreath away from the best DAT or CD recorders, and way more convenient. Don't judge the format by what you have heard, The Denon is in a class of its' own. Good Luck.
