  1. I took this test using only my laptop and some decent over ear headphones, no DAC. Funny they seemed to change the order of the music. I had to listen to JayZ and Katy Perry first and it was very difficult for my ears not to puke, let alone determine which was which. I was pretty sure I would get the Neil Young and Classical samples correct and I also got Coldplay by guessing. Scored three total. I guess it doesn't matter which digital file I get, I can't tell that much of a difference. https://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2015/06/02/411473508/how-well-can-you-hear-audio-quality
  2. I am listening to the 2016 re-release of Pink Floyd's, vinyl edition of Dark Side of the Moon. Even though I am almost certain the production source is digital, my opinion is that they did a fantastic job (no noise in the background as in the original album). I am tired of buying what on the cover seems a beautiful, brand new re-release, just to find out that the quality of the recording is "crappy". I have spent hours and hours on the Internet looking for "the right stuff" and yes I have found great products, such as MOFI, Speakers Corners Records and ORG Music. For the same token, I have thi
  3. My dad has always wanted to start a blog about his records and, I have come here to learn about records. Me and my sister want to help him start the blog. I am a videographer so guess I'm a videophile?, but honestly it requires both video and audio I guess . I was wondering what are some of the best sources out there for beginners?
  4. Dear fellow audiophiles, My name is Jerome Sabbagh, I am a new member and I am a professional jazz saxophonist. I just released a new album called "The Turn" on Sunnyside Records, with my longtime quartet of Ben Monder (guitar), Joe Martin (bass) and Ted Poor (drums). "The Turn" was recorded live to 2 track analog tape by James Farber at Sear Sound and mastered by Doug Sax and Jett Galindo at The Mastering Lab (with very little limiting, might I add!). It's all original compositions of mine, except "Once Around the Park" by Paul Motian, who I played with at the Village Vanguard in 2011.
  5. I'd like to get a list going of albums with excellent production/mastering that sound great on a hi-fi system...Recordings that showcase detail, separation, dynamics, etc. For example: Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Nils Frahm - Spaces Tycho - Dive Efterklang - Piramida From searching the web, it seems like most lists are full of older classic rock, jazz, and classical stuff but I'm mostly interested in more recent albums (within the past 25 years or so). What are some of your favorites/recommendations?
  6. I found a video recording of Vinyl Collective. "If you don't own this record, you might as well come to terms with the fact that you're a fraud and kill yourself."
  7. There's nothing to prove here, it's just an interesting listen for the general audience who don't have the time to take an audio recording class in college. FROM "Science Friday from NPR"
  8. I was wondering if anyone could help me. I've been listening to vinyl now for about 3 years and I really love it. I have a pretty basic setup (pioneer pl-a45d TT / pioneer sa-5200 amp / and 4 speakers) and am trying to go to the next level slowly as I save money. This is my question, I currently have an automatic turn table and I personally love the automatic starting and stopping. Are there no TTs that would be considered audiophile that are automatic? One thing that concerns me is sometimes (it's random, not all the time) I have a problem with shaking and not having super steady hands. I
  9. I'm hoping over the next year to acquire the components to a decent audiophile system. I think for a turntable I've chosen a Pro-ject Debut Carbon. What would I need (or want) in the way of preamps, stereos, speakers to complete a nice little living room sound system. This doesn't need to be something that can play my T.V. audio or CDs or anything. I just want a system dedicated to quality vinyl sound.
  10. My local shop has a Yamaha PX-3 in stock that is positively drool-worthy. Anyone have any experience with linear tracking turntables?
