Today I became aware of yet another gizmo we are "supposed" to use..
As it obviously is not from yesterday - does anybody here have any experience with it? If possible, backed up by needle drops of the very same LP "before" and "after", done under exactly the same conditions/equipment. That kind of $ is justifiable ONLY if it really does help sonics - hand wound, etc, even if done by virgin Dodo birds, won't cut it. The current Absolute Sound review might simply be a "reminder" to help clear the stock.
I do have a sizeable collection >1K LPs acquired in a single purchase, all of which leave sonically much to be desired. Not scratched, not worn out, not tracked too lightly, would achieve from mint to minimum VG rating - yet they simply do not "sing". 98% classiccal collection, with some recordings to artistically die for. It is bad enough to start listening to a piece of music and in the middle of first side switch off the system in aghast and go flushing the dissapointment with the minimum appropriate amount of beer in the nearest pub.
This is NOT a happy .
Remnants of the vicinity of THE MONSTER MAGNET at some point in the history of these LP ? Anyone with similar experience ?
