Yeah, but nothing new about that at all. In the 60s & 70s I listened to all that same gear (substitute an $80,000 Studer 24 track for the $20,000 ProTools HD system,) on a $59 Radio Shack turntable through some home made speakers plugged into a Lafayette receiver. Same approximate diminution of sound quality.

We discussed this on Facebook. Which led to discussing headphones. I just got a new set of Sennheisers. They are supposed to be good. But I don't know, they sound fine but they do not feel substantial. Old Koss cans those felt like headphones.

Koss Pro4/AA were the de facto pro standard in the early 70's. And the most excruciatingly painful things I've ever clamped around my ears. Torture devices.

Yep those are the ones. These Sennheisers are like not wearing anything.

Hey, if I could sell my music as ringtones, I would!

Then again, I do not consider myself an "artiste"...

In the 60's and 70's I loved plugging my old turntable 33's into my mono guitar amp...still a great sound if you want some loud live sounding music... wink

Dang, I did that too. I clipped some leads onto the cartridge of my cheap all-in-one turntable/amp/speaker & plugged it into my Vox Super Beatle. Crude, but loud.

In the late '60's, for a short while, I was in possession of an old Voice of Music reel-to-reel tape recorder. It had a small auxillary speaker( 4"). I could plug my cheap-o Kalamazoo straight into the mic input and have a small, not too loud "personal amp". That tiny speaker gave me a sort of "Clapton" sound. Much cleaner when I recorded straight to the tape through the jack input.

Late 60's I had an unknown brand turntable going in to my Silvertone...Early 70's I had a BSR turntable going in to my Fender Twin Reverb...what an improvement! evil
