- Two Pramplis phono + USB sound card in a minimal footprint.
- I'm in a club DJ and I play my productions from Virtual DJ (with timecods vynils)
- Laptop HP NX-9105 and Athlon 64 3000+, 1GB of RAM, Windows XP PRO SP2.
- Table DJ ECLER MAC40, 2 Turntables Technics SL1200 MK2.

Exactly what I was looking for several months. All this looks very promising!

- No problem installation, no need to diploma engineer to install it.
- No incompatibilits note.
- A menu for rgler latency. That's all we need!
- The manual is very clear, it also helped me in my choice.

- This is where the first problems appear ... After some time (1 to 2 hours) Virtual DJ miserably plant (although I had no problems with my Hercules DJ Console) leaving me in the impossibility to play my productions. Also, I could not "complete the program," and so I had to stay with the program open, but without being able to plant restarting the computer because the signal of my two turntables vinyl records through the interface ( RIAA correction is done through this interface). So for my use, crash = cut its mandatory to rutiliser the correct interface.
- No update for the moment ...
- Virtual DJ 4.1 with Vynils timecods.
- 128 ms (the minimum possible with this interface)
------

- I am using Conectiv for several days.
- Both pramplis phono have motivated my choice. Unfortunately, their characteristics leave to be desired. After comparison with pramplis my table ECLER MAC40 two major differences emerged: the Conectiv out a pramplification RIAA signal after about 6 to 8 dB below the level measured with MAC40 and the definition in the bass frequencies is worse than the MAC40.
- I have not tried other interfaces being equivalent so I can not compare.
- At first glance, the report qualitprix seemed very attractive, but the instability of the driver and quality of pramplis phono make me rviser my opinion. The interface remains intressante for home use that does not ncessite an irreproachable stability and can also be used ASIO sound card for other applications.
- My use as very limited at the moment, I can not say if I would do this choice. New drivers would be welcome and I am currently working on another solution for pramplificaton RIAA.
