It's the analog-to-digital converter that gets clipped so you have to control the analog level before it's digitized.

An attenuator between the preamp and USB interface should help if you don't want to buy an interface with a level control.

the Beatles White Album
You know... That's available digitally and you won't have any record noise or preamp noise, etc. :P

..That's my least-favorite Beatles album. :(
