I was listening to my Sgt. Pepper's record only the other day. Aside from the occasional pop and a bit of hiss, the only other problem was the needle skipping across the record every time I went around a corner.

Rent Party: Laobaojun: Any Farker electrical engineer: how hard would it be to come up with a filter that degrades CD quality down to vinyl quality?  Seriously,  I am tired of old folks and effete ironists insisting that vinyl is better, when it should be easy to provide a "crappy vinyl sound" button next to the bass and treble.

They have software VSTs that will do that for you now.

I just use sand

And the "industry" is sucking the torrents dick, atm, because for all of the self professed music lovers and those appreciative of the Obviously Inherent Superisority™ of the Cee of Dee, ain't nobody paying for it.  Which gets you a lot of hobbyists cranking sh*t out of CD baby after their shift at UPS.  If you really think the Ebil Recording Industry is making dough off of some vinyl marketing shuck, I'd skip the screeds about being delusional.  The only label on earth that isn't pissing red ink, atm, is Disney.  Enjoy your lossless Hillary Duff.

frepnog: the officially released cd was a poor master and has never been improved.

The officially released master was of a recording that was a complete fabrication made up of canned applause tracks, some like stuff tracked to a tape machine and studio overdubs.  And not only is it one of the worst sounding records in rock history, it doesn't even exist.  And I would have happily put my hand to cobbling together this utter con job if the phone rang and the check cleared.    :  )  Saying stuff like "lossless tip that exceeds the CD relase" about Kiss Alive I or II is a bit like saying "I have a argon sealed framed piece of preschool refrigerator art."

Sorry if that clashes with the tekkies dream of one day owning a living room with just a chair, a laptop, and nothing else.Tangible media still has its charms.

Uh, laptop? Try voice-activated commands, chief.

frepnog: bunner: But I've been performing, recording and mixing live shows and studio recordings for three decades

then friend, seriously, YOU SHOULD farkING KNOW BETTER.

Yes, I dare say anybody who doesn't absolutely agree with your opinions on the internet should be widely dismissed and pitied, and that's fine, but can you do it more quietly?

frepnog: I have a lossless vinyl rip of Kiss Alive II that to this day beats the sound on the officially released cd.

Impossible!  It's an exact, lossless duplicate of a recording from a noisy, lossly medium through noisy electronic signal chains!  *snort*

ReapTheChaos: I honestly don't care what products people spend their money on. You want to listen to music on vinyl. go for it. You want to drink micro-brewed craft beer at $7 a bottle, have at it. Just stop trying to act as if your choices are somehow superior to mine and everyone else.

You sound like a Natty Light man.

That's what 8-tracks are for, rocket scientist.
