Two Saturdays ago I got to experience the warm sound of vinyl at an older gentleman from my church who has been building his audio/video studio for the last 50 years and I was totally blown away. Not only does Bill have LP's from the 50's,60's,70's and 80's, he has reel to reel tapes from the bands he was in so listening to demos and live concerts was a treat. He has set up his speakers for true quadraphonic sound and listening some of the older jazz with each instrument coming out of the different speakers was pretty wild. I had not heard anything like that in a long time.
Yeah it was cool I took my cd of Dave Brubeck's Time Out and Bill played the LP so we listened to them back to back and the album was so much warmer, deeper sound. I love my cd's, but I do miss my vinyl collection.
