In Reply to: RE: What does it mean when the vinyl pressing is labeled 'audiophile'? posted by magiccarpetride on April 18, 2017 at 09:40:16
the marketing department had the final say in how it was labeled.
"The piano ain't got no wrong notes." Thelonious Monk
But I don't think the 180 g Abbey Road remaster was labeled as 'audiophile'. It's the sales guy who labeled it as such. So in his mind, that murky sound is 'audiophile'?
He's just being difficult, as record store dudes tend to be. Don't pay any attention to him. So-called audiophile records are just like any records: Some are very good to exceptional and some suck.
The term loosely applies to releases that have been carefully mastered and pressed by specialty companies such as Analogue Productions, sometimes using original tapes.
