Links of Interest Series #001

The first installment of regularly posted links of interest that I stumble upon. I'll have a permanent link to show only these posts on the sidebar to the right. Enjoy!

The Best Turntable (Entry Level) $400

I need to try vinyl one of these days. Maybe this is a good starting point?

"After consulting experts in the field and reading countless reviews, the entry level turntable to buy today is the Pro-ject Debut Carbon. It comes with the best combination of tonearm and cartridge of the entry level models out there, and is built well enough that you can upgrade the cartridge or other components down the road without needing to replace the table first."

The Dynamic Range Database

Does that new album sound better on CD, Vinyl or HDTracks?  Find out here before you spend your hard earned money.

24/192 Music Downloads... and why they make no sense

A very good article on why you DONT want a high sampling rate. Open this in a tab and read it later if you don't have the time. Its worth it. I like articles that have solid science backing them up. This is one of them. I'll also link the video accompanying this article because it demonstrates how science backs up facts and dispels myths about DA/AD conversions. I hope Monty makes more videos like this.


  1. I agree with you about Pro-ject Debut Carbon but for an entry level I thing spending less than 100 bucks will do

  2. A nice alternative looks like U-Turn Audio's Orbit, starting at $179. Under $100 is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.
