PS1 Customer Auditions Vinyl v Digital
I started a few hours ago. OMG!!! It was a very short war. I have not been pleased with the audio quality when playing vinyl ever since I got my current phono preamp. Using my current phono preamp, I listened to side one of a180g copy of Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon. Then I disconnected my current phono preamp and installed the PS1 and listened to the same side again. The difference was immediate and astounding. Here are my initial observations:
Much much quieter
Rich/Deep (nice tubey sound)
Bottom line: I now realize that my current phono preamp is a piece of s""t.
I feel like I have a new sound system, always thinking that the sound of vinyl seemed harsh and unnatural. I have found myself listening to more digital sources lately because they sounded better than vinyl. I may be back to playing vinyl again.
