    What are the reasons to choose Class A/AB/H over D in this day and age?

    As far as I know today nearly any cheap device that reproduces music is class D. Your cellphone, boomboxes, bluetooth speakers, your TV, your car sterero, all in one cheap home theaters, all in one mini audio systems, big speakers for parties, laptops, cheap PC active speakers, etc, etc. As...

    Speakers that produce astonishing soundstaging/imaging?

    Now that I remember, I have listened to side-firing-woofer speakers and it seems to me those speakers might really make a difference on soundstage. The owner had such side-firing-woofer speakers with woofers firing outward... woofers were pointing at the walls, and very close to those walls...

    Speakers that produce astonishing soundstaging/imaging?

    My guess is that speakers won't do much to make a difference on soundstage/imaging. (Recordings will) But Im probably wrong and I hope Im wrong.

    Speakers that produce astonishing soundstaging/imaging?

    Isn't that soundstage and imaging also have a lot to do with this or that particular recording?

    Sony SS-CS5 3-way Speaker Review

    I think we can say that Sony SSCS5 seem more oriented for teenagers/students or anyone who live with some space and time limitations. Some photos above seem coming from student's rooms. Audiophiles have dedicated rooms for music listening. Audiophiles have enough time to dedicate exclusively to...

    Trying to understand the turntable/vinyl world...

    Ha, I think you are right. Back in the days when turntables were the only (or main) device to listen to music.... Are we going to believe people only owned Technics/Thorens/Dual and the like? I guess most people had whatever was mass produced. Back in those days maybe people who owned High...

    Trying to understand the turntable/vinyl world...

    I agree with what you said. I believe my LP records are nowhere near as in good shape as the ones that belong to older and more knowledgeable music lovers or audiophiles. Don't get me wrong, Im careful about all my stuff (car, clothes, shoes, etc), specially electronics and so. About one third...

    Trying to understand the turntable/vinyl world...

    Well, I thought CD players were precision machines as much as a TT are. Maybe Im wrong. Doesn't laser has to be very precisely focused at the right spot while the motor has to spin at constant angular velocity all the time? Maybe CDs being digital media have a lot more room for signal correction...

    Trying to understand the turntable/vinyl world...

    That's it.... I wonder why in 2021 it seems a bit hard to find the equivalent of a Pioneer PL120: It is a TT which is cheap enough for a high school student and still sounds good...

    Can not find that video... I have watched several of his videos, he is entertaining... I can not say I agree or disagree with him because I lack the knowledge and/or experience to understand everything he says but it is fun to watch.

    Trying to understand the turntable/vinyl world...

    Thanks for the advice... Actually, my TT lacks VTA... So I guess Im very limited as to which carts I can try... (Probably will need to play with mats...)

    Trying to understand the turntable/vinyl world...

    Haha, you are right, sorry, I apologize about all the long nonsense Trying to get to the point is... Why an old mature technology is so expensive nowadays? And why new TTs are supposedly so junk that it is much better deal to go buy vintage... (Like today nobody will go and buy a TV from the...

    Thanks, you know, AT LP120x comes with an elliptical stylus. Just tried a conical one. The thing is conical stylus seems to work better for records that are in poor shape. Elliptical is more revealing. I gues Microlinear is even more revealing but then you need to have your records in prefect...

    Trying to understand the turntable/vinyl world...

    Hi, all, well, It seems to me the TT world is very difficult to understand. It seems very wild world. In 2019 I bought a "cheap" AT LP120X turntable (not really the same as AT LP120 but cheaper) I bought it going against several people's advice (online and offline) The general (strong) advice...

    Dynamic range, loudness war, remasters.

    Excuse my ignorance... What is "re-recording" and how can I know if a remaster includes this or not? By the way, I have Mike Oldfield Five Miles Out with average DR=13 and it really lacks punch and bass. You have to really turn up the volume to enjoy it. There is no bass. I guess "Five Miles...

    Thanks for the graph... Very sad but interesting... By the way, according to your graph, my remasters of Scorpions "In Trance" and "Taken by Force" albums are pure junk...

    Dynamic range, loudness war, remasters.

    This is sad. Imagine you are a young person (Im certainly not one) and you want to listen to the best recordings of 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's music. All you find online (or physical stores) are remasters and more remasters... Sure you can go to the used market (online or physical) but it is...

    Dynamic range, loudness war, remasters.

    Hello, thanks, yes, I know that site well and I used to visit it a lot... I don't know who runs that site but he is a hero!! But in some way it leads to despair. It is not as: "oh I will buy the 1985 release of this particular CD instead of the 2010 release" Good luck finding the 1985 release...
