The ADICON Project

An ADC not only for HiFi-enthusiasts

The ADICON is an ADC, primarily intended for HiFi-enthusiasts, i.e., owners of valuable tape recorders and turntables, in order to link these machines digitally to modern equipment. The original idea, a pure and quite simple ADC just for tape recorders mutated during its implementation into a versatile ADC including two inputs, an RIAA preamplifier, a headphone output and a driverless USB Audio Class 1/2 interface. It seems that the ADICON's major application will more and more turn into an interface for digitization of vinyls and tapes. Dual use - very gratifying.

For this project I joined together with Sonny and Heinz. Heinz came up with the idea for this project, he is responsible for marketing, legal things and so on. Sonny cares for the mechanical design including the outstanding front panel, production and test while my part is the technical design, the "inwards", so to speak, and the documentation. Also Heinz's son Markus (website) and my wife Birgit (translations and management) are deeply involved. We founded a company for it, called SSB Audio GmbH.This complex process lasted several weeks.

The ADICON is available from stock, have a look at our SSB Audio web shop.

The ADICON's ADC is based on my experiences with my AD24QS kits, of course, but the ADICON contains many more features:
