    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Yeah man - never knew you were into MBV. I’ve got the newish AAA cut and mastered isn’t anything and loveless done directly by Kevin Shields, you would appreciate them

    Listening Chairs

    Hi! id love for anyone to share pics and recs of some quality listening chairs. I’ve been using an old wood rocker which actually isnt too bad, but it’s a bit of a family heirloom piece and I should get my ass out of it. As I’ve been looking, the search has been harder than I thought - I’m looking for an armchair but most I’ve found are so bulky they would just dominate the room. Many nice chairs seem to be made for dining table sets or kitchen tables which look odd. I would say I like the mid century style the most but know those can get pricey. Something classy but not bulky, definitely wanting something on the sleeker side but hopefully still comfy. My listening room isn’t huge (maybe 20 deer across the long way), and it shares with the fireplace, two couches on adjacent walls, as well as the TV, space is somewhat at a premium.

    Maybe this is a good time to repurpose the T3 design into a phono stage #wishfulthinking

    You’re right! Wow, never knew how popular the chair was truly. It really is very elegant looking and super comfy.

    I went with IKEA 🤦‍♂️ it was cheap enoughand actually passed the WAF! Very comfy, and very non-ikea looking. Has a slight rock to it too which I like.

    That’s a nice looking and comfy chair man, sweet. Never really gave the z chair style a second look but that crate and barrel one has my interest piqued.

    Gilliab Welch Harrow and the Harvest on vinyl. Not really into the whole folk/minimal thing but got this on recommendation and it’s fantastic. Sound quality is exquisite - Gillian essentially started up her on label specifically to cut and master the lacquer directly from the analog tape to her specifications, it’s incredible.

    Could also be that the ghost is born is legit great sound quality. Pallas pressed and Kevin Gray cut, the thing has screaming dynamics. My YHF is whatever digitally sourced reissue from a few years ago

    What a disaster lol. But apparently the Japanese company is still selling them at 15k a pop!

    The analog thread.

    Yah. I mean it makes absolutely no sense. Maybe you get the noise floor a little bit lower? And maybe I guess you technically can squeeze in a little more dynamic range? For whatever those gains are, I think the fidelity loss due to all the extraneous conversions is totally not worth it. With that said, digitally sourced vinyl can sound good, such as when they use a hi-res digital copy of the original analog tape and use that copy for the stamper, but the whole HD vinyl thing is wacky to say the least.

    The analog thread.

    Really. Read about it at axpona. The weird thing is you have to convert the original recording source to digital, which then gets converted into some kind of 3D topographic map which then feeds the laser based cutter which then makes the stamper ill take my non HD AAA sourced vinyl just fine.
