Default Re: Turntable shopping.. any help?

Beyond a certain point, it is really just a lot of audio jewelry. But if the rest of your system is up to the task, they will offer superior, more realistic sound.

And yet, analog LP has an immediate, unprocessed and un-digitized quality that is highly seductive when compared even to very, very good digital.

I like to demo LP's that I have cut myself (several Chesky in particular) on the ELP LT, because it does not sound like an LP - but rather exactly like the master tape (plus cutter resonant signature and its companion preamp).

Then I play them the CD master - and jaws drop if the master source tape for both were analog to begin with.

Analog Rules!
