Thanks for the help guys I'll try the packages out.
To avoid any confusion whilst I have been an Audiophile for many many years and even more thousand of pounds it's always been important to me not to lose the music (the emotional part of it anyway). with this in mind it became apparent to me that certain types of music performed better on different systems. Which is why my 8K Audiolab system is in the loft and the Marantz is in the living room!
And it is my perception ( so it can't be wrong can it?) that certain types of moozik recordings lend them selves to vynyl and others to CD. Talking Book by Stevie Wonder , Northern Lights Southern Cross by the band as examples are better albums on Analogue than on CD.......but hey guess what they was mixed and mastered for Analogue. SRV, Kraftwerk and Radiohead and Guy Davis are better on Digital. Also the different mastering techniques use different frequency EQ curves which leans toward a particewlar type of media. So if your ears like a roll off at 18 Hz then you need a stylus
I actually am most impressed with my MP3 player and love it's portability but the encoding does lose something, however "a couple of quartz of beer will fix it so the intonation will not offend the ear" RIP Frank
It's good to see that a kwesjun on music has sparked some passion, cos that's what music is supposed to dooooo doo dooo bee dooo!
