We get into a GROOVE.

I find that, upon listeing to a lot of music (vinyl), and trying to evaluate sonics, we can easily get "sucked" into a "lower sonic standard". This happens because, people like me, who buy new lps, become a slave to the "lower standards" that are much lower than the standards we once use to aspire to. These lps aren't up to the standards I know exist. However, one/I can easily get use to the sonics these recordings produce.

It's important to note, this isn't the standard one should aspire to! Hence, "We get into a GROOVE".

We need to stay vigilant, and keep this in mind as we, as Audiophiles, go forward into our journey.

This is one groove I try to avoid. It is very important that we AVOID it!

Matt...My interpretation of what Slaw is saying is that
"new" vinyl pressings aren't as good as what was
once available?

I however do respectfully disagree. I've stated this many
times and maybe I'm just the luckiest bastard on the planet,
but I spend $300-$500 a month on new vinyl and have found,
(with a few exceptions) that the new crop of LPs are superb.

I just can't complain about my purchases. I have read many
times on here and just about everywhere else about how bad
the new pressings sound and how badly they are pressed, but
I sure don't hear and/or see it. I even took to comparing
all the different versions of some LPs that I own and know
and love and still found this to be true. It ended up being
a futile waste of time. So now I just sit back and listen
and enjoy.

Maybe I'm getting too old and really don't a care anymore.

It's the music that matters...
