Yes, the active inertial frame compensator is not shown in the cartoon.

The really good news is that, despite the notion that "the kids" prefer compressed auto-tuned cr*p, when Olive got them to listen to good audio they all preferred it, particularly after some training in listening. The popular press seized on that one professor's account of his students preferring MP3 etc., and it turns out to be ... rubbish.

Now, if we factor in the behavioral propensity for adolescents to rebel and find the material most irritating to their parents and other authority figures, these results are particularly heartening. And remember that teenagers are basically hormone-driven to the point of clinical insanity, a fact of development that we as adults find it convenient to forget ever happened, other than via highly selective nostalgia.

At the local A/V repair shop about 20% of his business lately is young (well, 20's or 30's is young) folks getting their new/old turntables repaired. The local used record stores are jumpin' too. Must mean something.

Thanks,
Chris

I've been astonished to see some of the prices asked for vinyl lately. There is still plenty of bargain bin stuff in out-of-the-way places, as I see friends crowing about their acquisitions, but those days are numbered.

I wish I'd sold my Mercury of Sythian Suite when it was worth the price of a new rifle. Only worth about a box of ammo since the CD came out. Fashion!

Thanks,
Chris

There's quite a bit of contemporary vinyl out there, courtesy of the
DJ demand. Sixty minutes on as many as 6 sides, no bass limiting, and
grooves you can see the land area in between.
