Vinyl rigs at the 'fest?

Who all is planning on bringing a vinyl rig at this year's 'fest?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Never!
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Re: Vinyl rigs at the 'fest?

Nah, leaving my Dual and Shure V15 type 3 at home. Still in closet where it has been parked for last decade. Thinking I will bring vintage 70's rig. Pioneer SX-1250 or Marantz 2270 with Dynaco A-25's for nostalgia purposes. My first real High Fi system as a college kid. Obviously CD player will be from a different era. Could bring a Sony 70's vintage cassette player, but Jesse may slip in during the night and throw it off the balcony. Figure it is fitting for all of us old gizzers that are attending. Won't be best sound at show, but may be the oldest. Once a year I fire them up. Might as well be at Carverfest.

Should't take up much trunk space. Condition of equipment is very impressive for age. Sound on the mellow side, in the event you haven't heard Dynaco A-25's, but still decent for bookshelf sized vintage speaker from that era. I believe Dynaco's A-25's may have been largest selling speaker of all time. If not, right up there near top.

That was funny, even with the CD he used put in a CD player
I still think vinyl sounds better.

Easy test for me...

Vinyl, even with its deficiencies.
