Ambrosia's First Album

Right at the Top of Our Difficulty of Reproduction Scale


You can play hard-to-reproduce records all day long if your system is tuned up and working fine. Ours has to be, all day, every day. The shootouts we do require that everything is working properly or we simply couldn't do them.

But you can't play this record on such a system without retesting everything, because this is the Single Most Difficult to Reproduce Recording I know of, bar none.

Product Detail


This is what makes it such a great test disc; to call it a challenge doesn't begin to convey the difficulty of playing a record that places such heavy demands on a system.

Which means I had to retweak a lot of my table setup to make sure it was 100% right, by ear. Getting the VTA right on this record is absolutely critical to its reproduction

(None of those silly setup tools for us here at Better Records. You can hear when it's right and if you can't then you need to keep at it until you can.)
