Young's comments remind me of Nietzsche's comment "God is Dead", and God's comment "Nietzsche is dead". Pono is now officially done. He is right about the digital masters and junk mastering. The selling of used records for the analog era is alive and well. Example: a number of the old DG classical albums are highly desirable.

I found it interesting Metallica just advertised a pre-release of their new boxset of remastered CDs AND LPs from their And Justice For All album. LP's Nostalgia?  :lol:

For nostalgia, I would like to have a functional one of these and a selection of platters.  Pretty cool engineering for its time.

As you know I own a lot of your gear Tommy.  If you are willing to spend a decent amount of money on a quality turntable, tonearm, cartridge, and phono preamp, and play a mint copy of a well recorded and pressed record, vinyl has beat digital in my system almost every time I have compared vinyl against a comparable digital version of the same music.  Granted I love the convenience of digital and achieved admirable results, but vinyl still rules IMHO.

Greg,

Interesting point.  I've found several recordings where he vinyl mix/master is better than the CD.  This is sometimes due to the two mixes being performed by different engineers.  An example is Adele 21.  There is a thread on the Digital Amp Co board about this:

Thanks as always for your kind contribution to our board.
