I was looking for info if one is better than the other is the ADS an upgrade since it is current is one easier to use or you can't go wrong with either one

I had all kinds of issues with the ADS the unit was very noisy in the end I returned it and went with the Eagle roadrunner combo from Phoenix Engineering however unfortunately Phoenix went out of business so good luck finding those nowe if I were you I would go with the SDS but you never no you're luck I guess it's worth trying anADS just make sure that you buy from a good retailer who will accept returns I got mine from Soundstage Direct that seth is a good guy and was very accommodating in accepting my return good luck and hope it works out for you so

I also had many issues with the ADS. I would go with the SDS if you want to stay with a VPI product.

i have a rim drive and need the ability of the SDS to provide the proper input for the correct speed. The adjustment is valuable.
