Not to make excuses, but what are the alternatives? Is no mastering better than a bad mastering? I hate it as much as anyone, but look at the plus side. It validates your choice of stereo gear.
Now how about R2R tape heads? I believe those should be demagnetised from time to time which lowers the noise floor (hiss). I have a nice demag wand for this purpose but have not been game enough...
+1 bad mastering
Excellent ! I like the Utopia and the LP rack in the back. I have the 800's too and my daughter loves them but I won't post a vid ! :) Envoyé de mon iPhone à l'aide de Tapatalk
