I want to add my vote to Davbe’s. Use a good cart and preamp first or all comparisons of thje digital end are invalid. But I am unable to dowload the files! I tried the WAV and also the FLAC and each foiled more than halfway through the “all files” download. I am routinely able to download large files, so I don’t think the problem is on my end. I usually get single files form, your site, but with 20 files to compare, I wanted to get them all in one folder. Anyone else having problems with this? <L> Lou Judson Intuitive Audio 415-883-2689 On Jan 25, 2019, at 1:43 AM, Dave Cawley <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > HI Brewster > > I get what you are doing, but comparing systems on good quality LP's using a low quality cartridge is the wrong way to do things.

This is a great project, but it would be a great shame to make less than good archives from them ?
