From LA Times article and my personal experience. A few days ago, I was at Noels‘ house. While talking, he fired up his premo-maxo LP rig. Zoey Deschanel was the platter of choice. It was impressive, but more so, I was caught up by the ‘air’ of the vinyl. Having grown up listening to LP’s, I realized it had been more than 25 years since I had owned a record player of any flavor. After a house fire, all my LP’s were destroyed. I wisely replaced them with cassettes (duh!) and then moved to CD. Vinyl never really occurred to me, as I was never really an audiophile. After the Zoey D LP was done ( both SIDES!) Noel broke out Steely Dan Gaucho. The hair on my arms stood up. It just sounded SO gooooooooood….It was alive, breathing in my ear like a certain red headed cutie I know. I was turned on. Compared to the crunchy snap of digital everything, this was a soft fuzzy blanket of audio goodness. A friend has offered me a turn table. I need to get my ass over and pick it up.
You know, cause, all them facts and things just git in the way of them there decisions and stuff dontcha know.
