    Funny but I know deeply troubled audio junkies who fear dying in their sleep each night for not owning the latest piece of aspirational sucker bait. Most of them have small, odd stashes of audiophile recordings that showcase aspects their systems but fail as musical experiences. Music junkies have house-filling collections of rare, wonderful vinyl LPs, tapes, 78s, CDs, even Edison rolls, that are like coral reefs full of recorded wonders played usually on at best OK+ systems. The contrast has always amused me.

    I read a test at Stereophile about a 100 000 dollars turntable. Company had been sent it to the test guy for couple of months. He told when his wife heard the system said '' Better than Sex ''.

    Anyone for whom the sound from a turntable, any turntable, is better than sex is either a eunuch or a virgin.

    It works for me. I never have a similar shock as When I heard the my first Istanbul Cymbal in a domed 550 years old building. It was same feeling like seeing Jesus or Muhammed in your room.
    I put 25 years on it , went to the archaeology , get analysises , research all metallurgy from Andes to Egypt to Yakutistan to Africa. I know this stuff better than photography. I think someone who did not experience this in his lifetime few times , he she is the real virgin.

    Maybe she was saying that sex sounded worse than the turntable

    As for digital vs analogue audio... I've gotten to hear recording sessions on SSL-G (valve desk, but digitally sampled) and SSL-K studios.. then hear the actual recording.. and what can be done to it. Neither CDs or Vinyl can hold a candle to it imho.

    Photography, making pictures out of light sensitive materials, is like playing musical instruments not merely playing records.

It is an original thing in its own right and subject matter is just one of the ingredients borrowed and then set aside in the chain of production.
    Well said.

    Um, it sounds like he's the problem, since his wife made the comment. Perhaps he needs to spend less time in front of the expensive stereo.
