Re: What Media did you last get??

Except that all new records are coming from digital recordings. They sound so crisp and clear. I have many old records from 60s onwards and records released over last few years. You probably can't tell the difference.

Honestly dolby is not bad. I remember listening to tapes years ago and dolby was actually better.

Re: What Media did you last get??

Well we hear in analogue. So moving original analogue to digital will always lose something but it's getting better than it once did and once in digital copying is more accurate. Still you have to move back to analogue so you can hear it. I find too many modern systems colour the sound, probably to suit general taste. I found same back in 94 when I bought my Denon D70 midi system, it had most natural sound. (Wish I could find new midi systems but only full size (won't fit cabinet) or mini/micro now. I think Quad may have midi size but I can't afford that! My D70 drawers for both CD and tape don't open properly.)

Re: What Media did you last get??

I'm an hgv driver and I usually listen to whatever YouTube recommends. Last time it recommended me the band called "Smash Into Pieces" and I felt like I've found a gold mine. Their album "Evolver" is so amazing!

I got a cassette today and its a collection of TED NUGENT with his original band in the 60s and the songs are insanely good!!! (They dont sound that good being on a 1982 release however..... Im gonna find out what album these songs are on and get the original analogue releases!!)

I think they are from 1 or 2 albums in the 60s.......

Boy his music sure went to crap when he went solo,his first solo album in 1975 is good but afer that they blow!!
