There are some fantastic albums from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s which were recorded on equipment which many audiophiles would consider hopelessly inferior to anything they would consider owning.
OK, like what? Revox tape decks? Mercury Living Presence 35mm tape recordings? early 60s analog DG classical recordings? RCA Shaded Dog classical titles?
