I have to agree with the sentiments expressed throughout this thread.

I too, am a lover of the analogue sound and vision. My hi-fi kit comprises the Marantz range of professional studio equipment from the '70s.

As a pianist and an organist (amateur, not professional, you understand) I have a great affinity for classical piano and organ music. And I mean proper church/cathedral organs.

Comparatively recently I invested in an active sub-woofer, and upgraded my pick-up cartridge to an Ortofon Jubilee moving coil.

WOW!!! The difference was unbelievable - almost more real than "being there"!

But, has anyone realised or worked out why we tend to prefer this sound?

I'll tell you.

We humans are analogue beings, not digital ones. Our ears are analogue dynamic devices, as are our eyes. Just think of how an echo works, or how the 'persistance of vision' works.

Therefore we feel much more at home with analogue/dynamic surroundings and they naturally seem more real to us - even musical instruments are analogue in nature.

I once had quite a long conversation with both a doctor and a music teacher on this very subject, so it all makes sense - to me at least. I hope you all agree.

Best ,



Valves and celluloid - a great combination!
Early technology rules OK!

M31 all began when Mike (oohh look at those boxes) Peckham was searching for M31 title for one of his collections-you need to look for an earlier thread [Wink]
