    'Hi-Fi Riff' YouTube channel - get an idea of the gear

    'Hi-Fi Riff' channel with views around 1000 gives some hints on how iconic nostalgia gear sounds along with more recent Hi-Fi. Nice chaps with some of the gear one once read about. Musical Fidelity A1 Class A, a hazardous fire starter, as an example. Deserves more viewers, I would say.

    Naim Uniti Atom Review (Streamer & Amp)

    Could be interesting to see how something like below would measure up, although shipment alone would be deterring. See https://innovative.nyc/naim for the purpose of each unit.

    Naim Uniti Atom Review (Streamer & Amp)

    It's more like the error-correcting theory is so much more intellectually stimulating than the sales/mags fairy tales.

    Naim Uniti Atom Review (Streamer & Amp)

    Diverging from the topic, within the Brand though - For those never familiar with error-correcting codes there was the now discontinued UnitiServe. For a small fortune, it did what any other mass produced CD-player was capable of.

    Luxman SQ-N150 Review (Tube Amplifier)

    LOL The Infinity is a 3-way floor-standing speaker. What if instead connected to a small 2-way speaker, such as B&W, Wharfedale, Dali or similar? The bass boost could be more fitting in such a context.

    Meze Liric Review (Closed Back Headphone)

    it's completely clear what it takes to get a favourable review. The manufacturer can perform the testing and make adjustments before start of production. It's that simple.

    Meze Liric Review (Closed Back Headphone)

    A concerted effort to review the item https://www.whathifi.com/reviews/meze-audio-liric Soundwise the summary is 'As good as the Liric are, we’re not fully convinced by their dynamic ability. The subtleties are handled well but there’s a notable lack of punch, particularly at low frequencies.'

    Why do records sound so much better than digital?

    Let's put it like this - If I were to enjoy a Madonna album from the 80's, then a Pro-Ject Debut Pro with a Moving Permalloy Nagaoka would be the means. The mastering of the Madonna CD's was probably not done with the aquired skills of today.

    Why do records sound so much better than digital?

    Moving Magnets have the quality which betters clinical CD's. Had an expensive Moving Coil with a separate RIAA, and it was too close to the infamous CD one is trying to avoid. Summary Moving Magnet - Yes, Moving Coil - No.
