This TC is clean, solid and WHAT A SOUND it has!!! It's faithful to the brand's image, this interface is a model of transparency, especially in this price range.
The flip side is that now I can hear all the defects...

Go get yours without thinking it twice.

"Very good to record vinyls too"

TC Electronic Desktop Konnekt 6Publié le 07/29/13 à 08:15
I have a high-end hi-fi system and several hundred vinyls. I was looking for something to digitize some of them with the maximum possible quality.
Having a BMC-2 of the same brand, I decided to get the Konnekt 6 after reading opinions about it.
As an aspiring musician, I intend to also use it to record piano, guitar, vocals, but that wasn't what motivated my purchase in the first place.

It is connected to my preamp (a tube Conrad Johnson) and a Lenovo ThinkPad R500 running Windows XP. I had to buy a firewire s400 for my PC's minidv adapter cable.
The vinyl source is a TD Ariston RD11S with SME arm and a new Audiotechnica AT-F7 cartridge.

It is connected to my preamp (a tube Conrad Johnson) and a Lenovo ThinkPad R500 running Windows XP. I had to buy a firewire s400 for my PC's minidv adapter cable.
The vinyl source is a TD Ariston RD11S with SME arm and a new Audiotechnica AT-F7 cartridge.

UTILIZATION

I downloaded the latest drivers from TC-Electronic's website and I also updated the firmware.
I did some recording tests without modifying the factory settings using the stereo line inputs: At 16 bits / 44 khz, 24bits / 96 khz, and 24 bits / 192 khz. No particular issues.
My only problem is that the recording output level of my preamp is too high, even with the gain control to the minimum! The signal clips at 0dB with peaks.

GETTING STARTED

I had no problems during installation. The interface with the reverb works fine.
Since I don't have any music-dedicated software, I started recording with Audacity (which is free). I systematically got blue screens as soon as I pressed <Ok> after modifying the playback/recording devices. I think it's because ASIO isn't supported by Audacity. I then switched to Diamond Cut, a software designed for audio restoration. And I was able to record without blue screens.
The manual I downloaded from the website is pretty comprehensive (there is only one installation procedure reduced to the minimum).
I compared the reproduction (using it as DAC) with my BMC-2 and an M2Tech Hiface adapter. It's all right but the BMC-2 / Hiface combination is better (and the price is also higher!).
To get a vinyl-like quality, I record at 24 bits / 96 khz. In that case it gets very hard to tell any difference with the source.

OVERALL OPINION

I'm pretty satisfied with it overall:
- Reproduction of the recordings. - Its design. - Price.
It would've been nice to have a recording software (even a basic one) bundled with it.
