I'd say original 45's and a crystal cartridge.

SY, I'm an expert in audio listening. It is one of the main responsibilities that I have as an audio designer. I trust my ears, even if you do not.

It seems pretty clear that digitalization of the signal from as soon as possible to as late as possible to get back to analog is what has been occuring for a long time now. Soon we will only have a microphone and a speaker that are still analog in nature.
Microsoft said a few years ago that the future was in mobility (portable) and everything available everywhere. No room there for discrete transistors/circuits anymore. Nor for much CE analog, either. -RNM
[funny though - transistors replaced tubes for their portability/small size also]

John, Do you mind telling us what device do you use for SACD playback and what device for CDs?

The only good thing lately is the LP has been grabbed and pulled from the coffin just before sealing it and shoveling dirt over it.

To quote Inigo Montoya: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

In any case, it's irrelevant to my point- how does even an "expert" listener know that two different formats have the same mastered source?

Think what you want, I have to make decisions based on my OWN perceptions. That is why I can make progress. '-)
