Re: CD vs Vinyl
[QUOTE=occupation;25787]No chips in a piece of digital hardware?? That's a first. What makes vinyl superior is that you can get more than what you can pay for. Once you've admitted to using OTA gear and tubes to extract the 'best' from your CD, SACD etc. you've gone into the realm of using distortion techniques to make up for a poor initial sound source in a bid to make it listenable.
As I have long held most (if not all) vinyl lovers prefer the distortion caused by the tracking of the vinyl because it adds something that is not in the performance.
I do not nor do I prefer the sound of Glass over well constructed electronics designed to eliminate not enhance distortion, glass or solid state.
