“Last year was the year music died. Well, my music died. My iPod is dying, a slow and painful digital death, having begun to fritz and refuse to sync early into this New Year. The device was condemned to death in September, when Apple quietly killed off the iPod Classic, the model I own, because of how dismally it has held up in the face of iPhones and streaming services. People just don’t want to own a 160GB chunk of metal to funnel their $2.99 mp3s into anymore.”

“From the consumer standpoint, recorded sound moves from the source (LP, CD, digital download) through player (turntable, CD player, smart phone) through wires, a pre-amp, another wire, an amplifier, another wire, and a speaker system (stereo speakers, P.A., earbuds). The biggest engineering challenges, and the ones that will make the greatest difference in the sound, are the ones that involve things you can touch. Your needle, cartridge, and turntable have to spin precisely and be positioned just so to extract information from the vinyl record. Getting all that to happen in a way that results in quality sound is really, really difficult, which is why you can buy a turntable that costs $90,000. Almost no one can tell the difference between a $100 CD player and a $1,000 CD player, but almost everyone can tell the difference between a $100 turntable and a $1,000 turntable.”
