Darko.Audio podcast #14 – Vinyl

  • Get into the groove? With entry-level turntables shipping with their own factory-fitted cartridges, I’m finding it a challenge, especially when sitting them next to entry-level streamers selling for similar cash. A recent poll revealed that many of you feel the same way. What’s going on? Where is that elusive magic that so many vinyl die-hards speak of?

    I put this to TONEAudio’s Jeff Dorgay for our first podcast episode of the year. Dorgay is a far, far more experienced vinylphile than I. What followed was a more pragmatic take on vinyl playback that suggests, as we might expect, that not all turntables sound better than all DACs/streamer combinations.
