Digital Audio

I trust your editorial writer knows more about arms control and economics than he or she does about high fidelity. Only a person who thinks all home hi-fis sound pretty much the same, could like the sound of compact discs at this early stage in their development.

Yes, they are quiet, convenient and won’t wear out, but they also sound hard, harsh, edgy, pinched, constricted, two dimensional, bright and generally unbearable after only a few minutes of careful listening.

A phone call to any serious audio salon in Los Angeles, even those that sell CD players, will reveal that to the ears of most audiophiles, records still sound better, and by a lot.
