Analog obsessed audiophiles are much like homeopathy advocates.  When basic audio engineering explanations defeat their mantras, they start talking about inaudible harmonics and other magical elements.

Listen man.  I'm better than you.  And by better than you I mean my ears are finely tuned sensory organs that have progressed beyond the mundane limits of you normals, and as such I can appreciate every minute detail of a musical piece in ways you will never even come close to being able to comprehend, which also causes mp3s to grate like 40 grit sandpaper on my discerning ears.  And by that I mean I'm better than you.

/m I doin it rite?

1) Sounded like she was sanding down the needle.
2) Gonna throw out a new argument for why I like records: It's really cool to be able to see the process. Records were a very elegant invention- they took the simple observation that a needle will vibrate when dragged across a rough surface and made it reproduce music and speech. However, as much as I like playing my music on a phonograph, I still have most of it on a computer. It is a lot more convenient.

Reel to reel.

Oh man, had a friend in SF who was way into retro synth gear and just had to get himself one of those. Roped me and another friend into carrying it up to his apartment. It was like moving a refrigerator.

Must have been a 1 inch machine. Home or "prosumer" units don't weigh more than 70ish pounds.
