Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped


I know it shows my age,but I have used every type of encoding on every type of media,including experimental stuff that is only just reaching the public and there is nothing that can match high quality vinyl through a very good large system for listening to Steve Hackett type guitar work or old synths.

And yes I could tell the difference between sources,be it media or encoding,not anymore though,too old and 25 years on building sites and strapped to two stroke strimmers for weeks on end doesn't help,even wearing very pricey Peltor aircraft ground handlers ear defenders !!

Just like eyesight,everybodies hearing us different,mine was exceptional,I could "feel" from 2 Hz and still hear test tones at 23khz,and could detect at very low pressure levels as well,as measured using about a million quids worth of room and kit,owned by a well known audio supplier/research company,that was when I was 19..
