Thanks for the link....his take on recordings is spot on. I would like to highly recommend Norah Jones Day Breaks LP ..it just blew my mind away like Steve says.

I have read a some very non-journalistic type, obvious product plugs from this guy.

He ain't my Guttenburg bible where audio is concerned.

Great video. Bad sound quality.

The story is ok, but I've also read some questionable equipment reviews by him and his writing is poor IMO. Many of his reviews have felt half-assed, and there were times back when I read more reviews than I do now when he would turn out several reviews a month. I don't think it's possible to adequately assess several pieces of equipment in a month and write thorough, quality reviews for them all.

I saw the first video clip from U tube. It was inspiring. I then watched another clip from the assortment of files also related to the topic. THis could get addictive watching them. The stories are great and the knowledge is worth knowing. Anything about vinyl I'm a junkie for it. thanks.

I watched this video a while back (I follow Guttenberg on twitter) and it reaffirmed what I already knew. I'm a music lover, Not an audiophile.
