In Reply to: RE: Reviewers with LP - how many are there ? posted by J. Phelan on March 03, 2017 at 18:48:26
Part of the problem is that most new releases are not available as vinyl
Any reviewer has to go digital to cover most new releases. I follow Gramaphone and American Record Guide who have gone digital for this reason
Since we are concerned with reviews of equipment rather than record content, this point is irrelevant IMO.
Since many of us think that the best sounding LPs were made during vinyl's "Golden Age" shouldn't these golden oldies be used to evaluate hardware? Look at recent reviews by Art Dudley, for example.
Who says we are only concerned about equipment? I learn a lot about music on the asylum
...the best LPs were 180-200 gram or better center-cuts, from Kansas City.
Both issued *since* the golden era.
...but hasn't this been the case since 1990 ? And I thought we were in a 'vinyl revival'-w/ more LPs coming out.
It was writer's statements 'as good as analog' or 'better' that prompted me to ask who's spinning needle-disc ? Apparently, not too many.
