It is embarrassing and difficult...

To explain to children why adults act the way that they do. I have come to the conclusion that adults are just screwed up kids with power. Now that they have power they can adopt the attitude that they know best and others are wrong about their approach to certain things in life.

I don't care what anyone uses in their rig as long as they are happy. The down side to people out there using poor quality gear is that there are a lot of lousy used LPs being generated. That sucks but we cannot make people be what we want them to be no matter how right we think we are.

I will draw the line on the notion that a turntable (or anything) has to be of a certain brand or a certain type to be any good. We used to think that people with different colored skin were not as good as people with the "best" colored skin and this turntable snobbery is a very small example of that thinking pattern.

I was raised to think all of those same narrow minded things too. I have tried very hard not to be that way and teach my children to accept people and things for what they are and on the basis of merit.

I am sorry for going down the path of predjudice but that is exactly what we are talking about here. In this case its a predjudice about turntables but its a dangerous thinking pattern.

In the case of turntables I have heard enough examples of different models and technologies that I am pretty certain that any approach, done carefully and by someone who cares about the product, can yield a decent performer.

There are so many fine examples of turntables that it makes me proud to be a member of this goofy fraternity. Its a great hobby that includes one of the most human things of all...music.


We don't shush around here!
Life is analog...digital is just samples thereof
