yes, and that's why I don't attempt to collect them. Most that are bought at antique shops, garage 
sales, etc, sound like crap -- and are only bought so I can show off my Victrola once in a while. 
The reissue CD's, particularly when they use metal parts, sound much better to my ears. Truth be 
told, there are very few things in my collection from 78's, and the only reason they're there is 
that the music is unique and was never duplicated or bettered in better fidelity formats.

one man's opinions, etc.
