I would say a fair chunk of 80s original recordings sound lousey on cd. Overall, that period, is far better on vinyl.

 

I'd be included to differ.  Barring a very few, the majority I've heard have been excellent.  I tend to seek out the earlier releases in fact, usually as they're closed to the analogue master.

You took that quote from 2012, right?

No. Have, however, changed the speakers. I have mentioned a number of times how those hard domed tweeters could make certain cds, especially remastered jobbies, sound a little mechanical.

BTW, have you decided on new speakers yet? Seems to have gone a little quiet.

Ah, me neither.  Most sound fine, think it's more down to the gear of today that's harsh than metal domed tweeters per se.  Mission 751 being a very musical, non-fatiguing mesh-dome tweeter that I use as a regular example.

Yup, that's us told what we shouldn't listen to. Pity, though, about the spelling.
