Those are Marco’s words, not mine. “Thank you Marco. I wished all my suppliers, dealers, consumers would express themselves too in writing, as that spreads our message. With all the guerilla-marketing tools we have today, we are able to inform the full world and beyond. But still you have to “switch on yourself” to do so. No smoke, without fire …”.
Inspired by Marco’s email about his new blog I decided to dedicate one blog a week on www.durobblog.com to news which is of interest for the BeNeLux market. So here we go!

Sometimes it’s not easy to deal with all the people that e-mail us to ask for info, or just share news with all hi-fi and music lovers. Answering to e-mails is a time-consuming task, yet a very important one for a company who wants to be open and communicative to her customers.
This blog will help us to reach all our customers, supporters and even people willing to know more about M2Tech, and share interesting and useful information about our products: new products, base knowledge, suggestions, events, and so forth. So keep on reading.

Vinyl ripping: an interesting article
Transferring vinyl into digital is becoming more and more an interesting topic day after day. Once the necessary knowledge is acquired, the task is quite simple and straightforward. Anyway, a good guide is really useful to newbies. An exhaustive article on the topic can be found here her: http://www.computeraudiophile.com/content/486-guide-converting-analog-vinyl-digital-files-using-windows/.
Of course, the author didn’t know about the Joplin 384/32 ADC at that time. Using the Joplin makes vinyl ripping even easier, as the Joplin can replace both phono stage and ADC at the same time (of course, owners of good phono stages may choose to keep their phono preamp and run the Joplin flat). For more details about the Joplin, please go to http://www.m2tech.biz/joplin.html.
