CD recorder?

Will be transferring over vinyl to cd's and was wondering which recorder will be the best for this?
I am considering the alesis masterlink 9600, is this a good choice?
I don't think you can go wrong with any reputable CD Recorder. I've been doing the transfer for a few years now (long time project) using a Marantz 6000. I recommend it very highly - works great, easy to use, makes great CDs. I'm not familiar with the Alesis but I've used a lot of their home studio stuff. I checked it out on the ZZounds site and it looks pretty awesome.

Have fun with i!

Yes good choice - here is a pro option HHB CDR850

In double blind listening tests audiophiles, recording engineers and laypeople participants could not tell when the A to D and D to A of this device was inserted in the signal path. So that is probably a good sign of quality.
I have a HHB-CDR-830 and I like it alot(no XLR inputs)
I have had her for approx 5yrs.and she's never failed.
We'll built, great recordings(LPs,cds ect.)HHB also has newer models.
I picked mine up at Long&Mcquade ltd.(musical instrument) store.We'll known thru out Canada
That's a nice looking unit, wish they had that when I bought mine a couple of years ago, Marantz Pro CDR510, which does a very good job....I haven't gotten into the intricacies of the unit, it does much, much more than I'll ever use it for. Probably what I like most about it besides its true recording capabilities (not adding anything) is it will add a 'track every minute', which is useful for off-air FM recording.

I saw one of these sell here a year ago for $100...must have been 'hot', as it was $700 new.

I recently bought a Sony RCD-W500C and while it does a fine job or recording analog to cd's, figuring out the process was another story.

I was lucky enough to get in contact with a member off of Audio Asylum that had the same model and he sent me an email with step by step instructions. I believe that I still have the instructions if you should get the Sony and cant figure it out.
I use a Burnit Plus CDR-830 by HHB. I like it and it is a pro machine with balanced ins and outs. It allows you to add text to your CDs also. It even makes a good player. The Alesis is probably good to.
I have had the Alesis for 3 years or so and absolutely LOVE it. The CD's I have burned from it are awesome. Very easy to use once you get the hang of things and very flexible. HIGHLY recommended. Mickey Fremer reviewed it a while ago and it has been in his reference system ever since. The CD playback from the unit is very good also, though I don't use it as my stand alone CD player.
I had marantz dr700, which I believe the same electronics as the 6000. Not so good recordings from LP. Bit harsh with that bad digital noise. It records only on Audio-CDR and not on simple cdr. Alesis is a much better choice, it mellows the transitiens, but fairly musical, nice recordings. Now I have apogge rosetta 200 ad/da,and I record LPs to computer harddisk. Way better quality, easy to use. The standalone apogee mini ad is at half price.
The Denon in my system makes perfect recordings every time and retails for about $600. The player sounds very good also. Highly recommended.

It replaced a $900 California Audio Labs Icon mkII player which was highly regarded by many in its day. I thought the Denon sounded better. I could hear more detail out of CDs.

When I bought it, I was expecting to have to go for a good player in addition, but I haven't heard anything to convince myself it is needed so far, so I've stayed put. IT was a great investment for what I paid.
I recommend you only consider a pro model. Consumer models are too restricting.
Thanks for all the responses I went with the alesis.

You'll love it. Let us know. Make sure you read the manual front to back a few times. I'm not a pro with it (I don't use the processing, equalization, etc) but very good with recording so holler if you need anything.
The Alesis looks very nice.

Let us know what you find.
