  It's complicated.
Both consumer and recording production gear.
Analogue and digital.

I enjoyed receivers with digital signal processing for a number of years, until I had
some kind retrograde brain spasm and find myself now in the mid 70s early 80s again.
A few years on eBay and many thousands of dollars later,
I now do a lot of my music listening in the analogue domain as I did back then.
LPs, CD-4, open reel tape, and analogue outs from my Oppo 105 and 105D.
(Also own the 83 and 9 3which can still play my SACD-R discs.)

Program notes no help. all in ... more
