Can you Sum Some mfsl cassettes That can compete With the vinyl version???
Very good opinion piece, Hugo. I might even have an old review article in one of my stereo magazines which compared formats - vinyl, cassette and open-reel. Too bad 8-tracks didn't make the cut.
Boy! Good that I asked!!! Right now I feel like an i-Gen toddler who swipes his tiny hand across a book and thinks that it is a broken iPad. I have no opinion of my own on the subject simply because I could not even imagine (like that toddler) that cassette may be considered superior to the "original". I will research it a bit further, but now I see that its a great conversation starter! Hopefully more tape-heads will chip in
I prefer a turntable but I refuse to buy a portable one!!
Here is a portable I have had a for a few years - a JVC DC-7.
Amazing! How does the stylus operate?
It had a linear-tracking tonearm. Check this previous thread: http://stereo2go.org/forums/threads/jvc-dc-7.345/
I have just very few MFSL tapes (3 or 4). Star wars by Zubin Mehta is one of them. Sinchronicity does also sound very slightly better. I'm about to receive Sgt. pepper by Beatles, I'll share my thoughts.
Dark side of the moon also sounds very very well, but I don't have the original US version in vinyl, only a spanish edition which usually sounds worse, so I cannot compare directly.
Ok.... Many Thanks !!!
