You have to identify the problem in your workflow and components. It is possible to consistently and precisely capture the qualities and character of an LP. It can’t be done with basic equipment, unfortunately, but as you scale the quality ladder the difference between an original LP and the digital needle drop result narrows to the point of disappearing. The Sweet Vinyl Sugarcube SC-1 Mini is superb. It contains a lot of processing power, a lot of fast RAM and - above all else - some brilliant firmware. In a high quality signal chain, the SC-1 does not audibly degrade a signal unless the LP being processed in real time is so badly damaged that it is beyond (digital) repair. The SC-1 Mini is a superbly well-designed component that works brilliantly, but it cannot perform actual magic.
