      There are things that occur to weekend-warrior audio hobbyists that would never occur to pro audio engineers in a million years.

      Sony decided that the way to revive the audio disc market was to make the discs smaller.

      I hope I never develop a case of polishophobia.

      New issue: wiring a bathroom for sound. Now I actually have to give serious consideration to how restored tracks will sound in the can.

      I wonder if there is such a thing as optimizing a sound system for shellac.

      I don't quite see the benefit of following me when you're on my ignore list, guy.

      I'm contiunally reminded why I don't take vinyl seriously.

      Limiting myself to one post per thread is SUCH a good idea. Let OTHER people do the arguing and get their posts deleted.

      I refuse to do unpaid R&D for anyone. I just won't buy the company's products if they don't work.

      It's amazing how many people are taken in by ads and other low-info media like YouTube videos.

      There's only so much you can do to enhance the performance of consumer-grade, unbalanced, RCA cable.

      People who obsess about the performance of consumer-grade RCA cable really make me laugh. Pro cable is TRS or XLR (balanced) cable.

      Home audio consumers often obsess about things that are complete non-issues to audio engineers.

      I'm trying to achieve more depth in restored recordings. I don't quite know how to do it. I DON'T want to use reverb effects.

      I thought *I* was obsessive....

      CD's are so much more reliable than vinyl LP's as playback media, it's a joke. You couldn't PAY me to collect vinyl again.

      CD defects seemed to disappear within the first year after CD's were released. LP defects, OTOH, have never been eradicated.

      Remember it's not old, beaten up, and technologically obsolete. It's "vintage".

      Uh-oh. I think some neurotics are going to have triggering moments because I criticized their favorite phonograph cartridge.

    Call me an audiophile, I dare you.

    I'm an audio technician. Mostly, I just twist the dials for the people who do the real work. Projects have included engineering for a physicist doing a sound-level profile of Orchestra Hall for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
    My studio systems are all SS, with, for the most part, digital playback. I only ride the vinyl short bus when I have to do the occasional audio restoration project. To me, turntables are just tools for getting the job done. I'm a digital guy at heart. The oldest things in my collection right now: a Dual 1229 turntable (permanently retired) and a pair of KEF 2-way, 8-inch floor-standers in custom cabs. My desktop monitors are JBL LSR305's, hitched to a dbx 231s EQ.

    Recommended book for vintage-heads: 'Radiotron Designer's Handbook', published by RCA. It's available as a free download. Just Google the title.

    "Involving?" I've no idea.
