Gosh ... let's see ... 4 copies of Amon Duul 2's Wolf City, 2 copies of Can's Ege Bamyasi, 2 copies of Klaus Schulze's Mirage, 3 copies of Tangerine Dream's Phaedra, 2 copies of Stackridge's Mr Mick, 3 copies of Gong's You, probably 4 copies of Close to the Edge, and at least 2 copies of Atom Heart Mother, and ... 2 copies of "Live on Blueberry Hill" by Led Zeppelin ... the best  bootleg I have ever heard in my life. Lastly, 2 copies of at least one of the original Raving and Drooling/Gotta Be Crazy, that was delayed by you know who. And all this was with a very nice Pioneer turntable and a Stanton Cartridge that lasted 30 years after it cost me $300 dollars in 1978!
 
Probably more albums, too! I even came to dislike the CD version of Wolf City, with the song order backwards. Somehow, Side 2 at the front, did not sound as nice and fine as the album ever did! I thought the transition from Side 1 to Side 2 was perfect! And in the CD it didn't work backwards!

... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, instead of paying for a guru or church or social program!

Jon and Vangelis - The Friend Of Mr Cairo has the same mess on CD. Backward it doesn't work much.

Is this the same Jimmy Page that DIDN'T use the original master tapes but the digital remastered versions for the new Led Zeppelin Vinyl re-issues???

Don't you trust Jimmy?

Well, didn't Steven Wilson explain this, rather lucidly, to you all:

The Creator has a master tape
But He left it in the cab

I'm gonna say one thing. I cannot live without my DAC (Digital Analog Converter.) especially for headphone listening.

It is an essential part of my music listening experience. Can't be out of the equation of my sound chain or it all goes to sh*t. Lol.
If you have sensitive and analytical sound equipment quality after market audio interconnects/cables make a HUGE difference in overall sound quality...Wider soundstage, reduced microphonics etc etc..
