Analog Corner #100

The Mørch DP-6 tonearm’s pillar


This is the 100th “Analog Corner” I’ve written for Stereophile. Thanks to all for reading the column, and for taking the time to send me and the magazine so many letters, complimentary and otherwise, over the eight years and four months it’s taken to reach 100 installments. In that time we’ve witnessed one of the greatest resurrections since…well, I don’t want to get into John Lennon’s trap, so let’s just say the unlikely survival and rebirth of analog in the age of digital everything has been one of the most gratifying phenomena I’ve witnessed in my life as an audiophile.

Bob Dylan’s “More Blood, More Tracks The Bootleg Series Vol. 14” Review + Exclusive Interview With Co-Producer Steve Berkowitz

By | November 2nd, 2018|Categories: Analog planet|

1974’s Blood on the Tracks (Columbia PC 33235) was for many at the time a “Bob Dylan’s back” album. He was back on Columbia Records after leaving for David Geffen’s Asylum for a pair of not particularly well-received at the time albums backed by The Band. But more importantly Dylan was back in the more familiar role as folk-poet and story teller—though spinning more deeply felt tales from various points of view that many observers wrongly thought were personal chronicles.

Best Digital Release Ever? Analogue Productions Reissues “Axis: Bold As Love” on SACD

By | October 31st, 2018|Categories: Analog planet|

“Why another Axis: Bold As Love?” That’s what I asked myself before buying this SACD. After all, mono and stereo AAA LPs have been in print for several years, and were obviously made for audiophiles. For digital listeners, the most recent CD edition mastered by the late George Marino at Sterling Sound isn’t bad. How much better can this album sound?

Analog Corner #99

The innards of the ASR Basis Exclusive phono preamplifier, reviewed in this column.


Press kits arrive at my house almost daily, trumpeting one thing or another, including upcoming hi-fi shows around the world. Recently, none has provided quite the jolt to my system as one sent by Steve Rowell of Audio Classics in Vestal, New York. It’s for the New York High Fidelity Music Show, September 29–October 3. Don’t worry, you haven’t missed it. Well, you have—by 38 years. Rowell sent me a genuine classic: a press kit for a hi-fi show held in 1965.
