A couple of years ago, in the Austin Chronicle
Rupert Neve is quoted as saying...
| "Analog quality is still far in excess of what digital technology can attain. Although I believe my company will soon be able to show the standards thought to be the ceiling of digital quality aren't so at all, the limitations of the present digital system actually produce fatigue when you listen. CDs aren't just not producing the resolution of an LP, but they're also producing other artifacts beyond the normal limits of hearing that the brain can sense. It creates a disturbance that brings on anger, frustration, and tension. That's not what you want when listening to music." |
So what do you think? Is he blowing off digital because he's blowing his own horn saying in essence, here comes Rupert. I used to be great and I'll sell you something to transform your digital?
Why does he ignore the limitations of vinyl and champion a technology that if criticized in the same light as digital would have more bullet holes than Hussein's kids?
Maybe it's time for Rupert to move to the senior's tour?
