You can't reproduce test conditions or test results using adjectives, the stuff on which The Absolute Sound thrives. Jan 18, 2018 at 9:39 AM

      Unfortunately, on public forums, the opinions of the knowledgeable and the opinions of the ignorant are weighted equally.

      Vinyl -- the audio stone out of which one attempts to squeeze blood.

      Meanwhile, my newest CD player only cost a little over $200. My newest audio interface only cost $100.

      Nice to discover that the ASIO driver written by another company works in your brand of audio interface.

      I'm trying to keep the number of preamps down in my recording rig. This problem has turned into quite the bitch.

      First, you need to get some audiophile ground wire, made of hand-woven Japanese copper, only $500 a foot. Michael Fremer swears by it.

      You care a lot more about your problem than I do. I will, at most, make a suggestion or two, then move on.

      Cassette tapes, because the sound isn't degraded enough on vinyl. Strive for the ultimate recording -- pure noise.

      if there's an audiophile branch of SETI, it must meet in the turntable forums of amateur audio sites.

      Automatic turntables are noisier, by and large, than their manual counterparts. It's just the way it goes.

      I refuse to help anyone who can't be bothered to spell-check a simple word like "advice".

      If there are at least 20 threads on a topic in the archive, people should receive an electric shock if they try to start another thread.

      Turntables -- I love not having my ego not wrapped up in them.

    Call me an audiophile, I dare you.

    I'm an audio technician. Mostly, I just twist the dials for the people who do the real work. The last big project I did was engineering for a physicist doing a sound-level profile of Orchestra Hall for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

    My studio systems are all SS, with, for the most part, digital playback. I only ride the vinyl bus when I have to do the occasional audio restoration project. To me, turntables are just tools for getting the job done. I'm a digital guy at heart.

    The oldest things in my home studio right now: a Dual 1229 turntable and a pair of KEF 2-way, 8-inch floor-standers in custom cabs.

    Recommended book for vintage-heads: 'Radiotron Designer's Handbook', published by RCA. It's available as a free download. Just Google the title.

    Manufacturing requires reproducible outcomes. "Involving" isn't reproducible.
