RE: Problems with jazz vinyl, new and used...

Most responders seem to be assuming that the problem is your set up, yet you say that when you played test records, everything came out fine. There are some great jazz records out there, such as Blue Notes and Verve, and Pablo. However, there are also alot of really crappy jazz records out there. A great many recording engineers have no clue what they are doing. There are a great many albums out there where the mikes are far too close to the instruments, especially the brass instruments, as you mentioned. Don't automatically assume there is something wrong with your setup - if I had a dollar for every audiophile that assumed there was something wrong with his setup when all he had was a really badly done recording....
