Try an Alesis hard disk recorder. You don't need a PC and it works very well as an audio component. Has pretty good A/D in it, too. About 800 brand new.

I use a creative labs sound card with spdif inputs and outputs on my hard drive and do not experience this problem at all.But I do use a high quality software program to do all of my own dubs on .I utilize Sound Forge 5.0 which is a $500.00 recording program.I beleive Sony now have rights to this program come to think of it.
Of course I use as high a quailty of IC I can get my hands on to patch between the device used and the computer.I also copy real time.Well best of luck
You might consider a freestanding CD recorder such as the Marantz/Superscope Professional series models. They turn up used pretty often, sometimes under $300.00. I can play CD's recorded on my CDR 630 in my system and can barely tell them from the vinyl they were recorded from. I have the recorder hooked in to a tape loop on the preamp.
