Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.

ah but here is the catch.

How many times have you actually directly compared vinyl and digital sources that were derived from the same tape feed and not tweeked in any way by the mastering engineer? Without that any comparisons are poisoned by other variables. Not a lot of those kinds of things out there. James Boyk actually released a comparison package years ago of an LP and a CD of his recording of Pictures at an Exhibition. If you can survive the performance (sorry James if you are reading this but I don't like it) you can make this comparison with all other variables removed. There are a few other releases that do the same thing. I have seen one here at a local record shop in Hong Kong that is an everything comparison package. LP, CD SACD, hi res file and DVD-A. I think I might buy it. There's some really amazing cool stuff for music lovers/audiophiles here in Hong Kong
