Comparing Older gear with modern stuff
I wondered if theres anywhere you can go to get a rating of older gear compared to the newer stuff
I mean, how would one find out how an old Marantz CD50 would compare against a Cambridge Audio Azur 640C ? - What about putting a Cyrus 3 Amplifier up against a Rotel RA-05 ?
Wouldn't it be nice if there was somewhere that rated out of 100 the quality of these older components when compared to modern ones so we could know just how much difference upgrading our gear might help us.
I would love to know what sounds best, a record deck or a CD player costing the same amount, but on the What Hifiequipment listings theres only like for like comparisons, which makes sense I guess, however, it would be very nice to have an article which challenged these problems and gave us some answers!
