    Contrary to popular belief, most DJs like a good sound, too!

    [Hence why the Technics was chosen and used by thousands of professionals worldwide, not just because of its ruggedness].

    I know *exactly* what you mean, as I'm the same.

    However, that's because my turntable shares the traits of a good CD player, as I described before, and most of the records I play are in pristine condition and squeaky-clean (having been meticulously run through an RCM), so as with CD, in terms of noise, there is virtual silence on playback.

    No clicks, no pops, no scratchy noises - just pure unadulterated musical pleasure!

    It's therefore sometimes VERY easy to momentarily forget if you're listening to vinyl or CD.

    This was an interesting review Marco. Compares the new cheaper Technics SL1200 against the original.

    Analogue is what your ears prefer, it has something to do with speed of delivery, analogue delivers the sound slower than digital therefore your
    ears pick out out more of the sound. Its all there in the digital version but because the sound is delivered faster your ears miss it.

    That's novel, posting a link to another thread started by the OP.

    If I ask you what something means it's because I'm unable to understand whatever it is you're not managing to put into words very well.
    I have given up on guessing.
    If you don't like it then that's just tough shit!

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?
