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.
