I have been eyeing a Sugarcube for a while now and it's at the top of my list of wanted components, I'm just not sure which model. I know these are pretty much out of stock but I've been looking for used as well. I want to cut back on my vinyl collection and properly digitize as best as I can before I start selling. I have an Apogee Desktop Symphony as an ADC, but it's usually in a separate room with my music studio setup. It would be a pain to keep moving it back and forth when I want it in the opposite room. If I decide on a unit without recording capabilities and use my Apogee it looks like it will still be a pain because there isn't an extra set of outputs on the Sugarcube, so I'd be monitoring on my laptop as recording directly from the unit or alternately using an output from my preamp and have the recording chain go there...so confusing. The Discogs tagging feature, do I have to use the recording software that's included? Can I get that software at no charge if buying a model without recording capabilities? Would it be better to just spend the extra bucks and get a recording model? I just don't think it will hold a candle to my Apogee.
