@johnss I was interested in flac because that is the file type my Bluesound Vault 2i saves my CDs to. Wav would be fine also, as I have read that is a quality file type.
@esporma, I assume that listings on Audiogon will be for very nice equipment at high prices; more than I care to pay. So I didn't even look here. The PS Audio phono preamp looks good -- I'm sure it is quality for only about twice what I paid for the zphono. But I don't see in the description any reference to using it to convert records to digital files, which is what I want. It does that?
I received the Parasound zphono USB yesterday. It supposedly only weighs 5 lbs., but it feels heavier. I haven't connected it yet, but at this point I think I might fend off a intruder by hurling at them. It is a hefty block. 😁
