Record Myths, Canards & Flat Out Misunderstandings

Click on the link below to read about some of the widely held beliefs about records that we believe are not well supported by evidence. "Evidence," as we are using the term, is simply our evaluation of the sound we heard from the records that we’ve critically auditioned in our Hot Stamper Shootouts.

In these commentaries we present the evidence we've gathered contradicting the theories, rules of thumb and guidelines that audiophiles and record collectors have adopted to help them in their pursuit of better sounding records.

We prefer to think of these erroneous beliefs as Myths, Canards and Misunderstandings. Not unlike the superstitions of the past and present, the audio world is overflowing with them.
