RE: LP recordings: Normalization and limiter

"I search for transient pops and clicks that would upset the actual signal peak determination and remove them..."

I do something similar, i.e., reducing amplitude of the atypical peaks before loudness normalization. But with some LPs I still end up with a number of peaks that get pushed into clipping and use the limiter function to "fix" them. I'm conscientious about overuse of the limiter but I'm still learning. The example I provided in my original post was at the upper end of what I consider reasonable.

My DA-3000 is only a couple years old and I only use it for recording. So far, so good.
