Analog vs Digital on albums from the 60's and 90's
Analog pressings from the 50's/60's/70's will always be more desirable and worth more than new reissuses cut from digital files. I am always on the hunt for original pressings!  
Audio Mirror Tubadour IV vs Lampizator Amber 4
Audio Science Review might have a test of the Audio Mirror DAC. This might be a good way to get a handle on the sound.  
Dumb Question
I already have a Sony CD/SACD changer and a Sony Blue Ray Universal player. Optical disk playback has been a mature technology for at least twenty years. Nothing new under the sun! I doubt that in a blind test an Oppo and a Samsung can be told apa...

I know from practical experience that lubricating a drill bit reduces overheating and extends its life.   
The "Very Best Record Cleaning Formulation"
My question to you sir is "Does the application of Stylast to the diamond stylus actually reduce wear - thereby extending stylus life?" Michael Fremer of Analog Planet claims it does - but he does not have a degree in Material Science.  
Question about how analog audio recording works
@atmasphere ​​​​​: The Lincoln Walsh speaker is the closest to being a full-range driver of all the dynamic (moving voice coil in a magnetic gap) speakers. It does have a problem with frequencies above 8khz being down in level compared to the midr... 
Question about how analog audio recording works
Compact discs do not have 1's and 0's embedded in the polycarbonate. CDs have a series of pits on an aluminum layer arrayed in a spiral pattern. A red laser follows the spiral groove from the center outward. The reflected laser light is read by a ...
