    Lies about vinyl vs digital

    Don't you mean a "beauty in vinyl"?

    Spin a record while listening to a file and you're good. 😉

    CD players are back ?

    I wouldn't mind having a look at the intermodulation distortion measurements of large single-panel ESLs. Have you ever seen any?

    Album of the Evening

    Cold, gloomy and wet day...drastic measures are in order.

    It's not the amount that is important but the number of ways. But you wouldn't know... Try playing a symphony with a single-driver speaker, but listen to the same work live first.

    It's about how much of the recorded music you wish to listen to. I have a friend who loves classical music but is content with listening through the speakers of his TV set. Some people are a bit more demanding. Audiophiles are interested in the sound quality as much as in the music and just like a racing driver wants to extract the maximum performance from his car to get the best handling and the fastest lap time, they want to get the best and/or the most accurate possible reproduction of the recordings.

    With that CD player and a pair of single-driver speakers? Not possible.

    Looks like another 47labs knock-off... I had the original; it was rubbish.

    Really? I was hoping for something more interesting... Very disappointed Peter.

    With low-resolution music files you're not going to get far...

    The flaws of blind listening tests

    Magazine reviews and webforums produce expectation bias. There's no escaping it.

    Accuracy takes you closer to the sound/music.
