But I DO listen to vinyl - and at times what I hear from vinyl is deeply satisfying - not because I believe the medium is superior - but because the production on some vinyl is just "right", just "there", just allows me to forget the damnable gear and enjoy the sublime music. But sometimes not - for instance anything released by "Four Guys with Beards" - horrible, tinny sounding and just repulsive. So vinyl is not the answer - and neither is digital. The answer in my mind is better production from all involved.
Music - what it is all about. That thing that is never understood but has accompanied all men through all time - and without which our lives would be much poorer.
