Default Analog to Digital Converter for Recording Vinyl to Computer?

Can anyone recommend an affordable A to D converter for recording my vinyl to computer? Would rather not use the on board A to D converter on the motherboard.

I'ld like to record 24/96 or perhaps at 192

The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is what I have, but I haven’t fixed my turntable yet so I could try it out.

If you're on Windows you need to be careful to actually get 24bits and 96K.

Could also be done with a standalone digital recorder with a good ADC and feed the line input from the output of your phono preamp. A friend used my PCM-M10 a year or so back to digitise his collection.

Depends on what your "computer" is....
Laptop..? Tower..?

However, ... onboard card for a tower....
M-Audio

Cheapest external might be this if your laptop has a firewire port...
M-Audio Firewire Audiophile |
M-AUDIO Audiophile Firewire Interfaz de audio 4 in / 6 out / MIDI. PC y MAC | eBay
M-Audio Firewire 24/96 | eBay
can be had for the price of a good lp

My preferred solution, Tascam makes one with good mic pre-amps so you have the additional option of recording flat and applying software RIAA (or any EQ you want). You do need a small box with cartridge termination, etc., not for everyone.

No driver/software/OS issues to deal with.

I'm not the right person to ask.

I don't know anything about the available DSD ADC chips beyond Googling the datasheets. As for DSD recorders I've never used one.
