Best thing I ever did pick up a Technics hifi for 40. The difference in sound quality is excellent.

It's the cartridge and preamp that's doing the whole trick.
If you find the right stuffs to your turntable the E1 vinyl sounds totally amazing.
Light years beyond that cheap CD version.

I have quite a few digital recordings - download and DVD / Blu Ray Audio, which sound as good and warm as any vinyl. I'm not a "vinyl or nothing" person. The loudness wars have vinyl casualties too - just listen to the current pressing of Oxygene, for example. 'Electronica 1' though has been mastered so loud, I doubt it's possible to press it at the same levels as it's digital counterparts. The stylus would probably skate off the platter :mrgreen:

Vinyls inherent limitations have turned into a huge advantage ...

Don't know where they are gonna 6 disks of music from when the digit packs have the full album. Can only think they will be selling the fan box together at a later date. 6 disks would be 4 vinyl and 2 cds.

I like vinyl, especially the ticking and hissing and hanging records - it's a lot of fun.

I think this CD has got some kind of curse over it.
The other day my car stereo went baloony after the track "time machine" and started to skip after 10 seconds on every track and got stuck at the beginning of the next track.
After a quick check of the CD surface I popped it into the player to try it again wich I shouldn't have done.
Now it's stuck in there and all it says is "CD ERROR" on its front display. :lol:
The car and the cd-player is hardly 5 yo. It couldn't have something to do with the bumpy road could it? :nico: :wink:
I will bring the car to the workshop on tuesday so they can take out the car stereo, take it apart and hopefully rescue what is left inside it. All for "just" a couple of 100 's. :P

Hi guys I just want to say im hearing a lot of mixed reviews towards electronica 1, my opinion is its one of his best to date, after teo and tea things seemed to go very quiet on the jarred side of things, I actually thought that was it he had retired or something like that, but no, hes took a good few years out (rightly so) to experiment, travel to other musicians and to me has made a stunning comeback, im totally in love with electronica, theres 1 track im not sure about which is the laurie Anderson track, but I dnt think anybody loves every single track on a musicians album.

Anyway im waiting patiently for vol2 and from what ive heard the tracks have more of an edge, im already loving the yello track and from what ive heard its going to be another stunning album.

Yes we are entitled to our opinion but hes still jean Michel jarre we have all come to love over the years, and hes making a stunning comeback especially with the tour, I wish him every bit of luck in what ever way he goes as to his music and I know aslong as hes around and making music ill be one extremely happy fan.

Let gets ready to rock :peacemaan:

Update: On friday I was able to "entice" the CD to come out of the cd-player by using a plastic spatula with packing tape folded over the front edge with the sticky side turned outwards. I found a clip on You Tube.
Now the cd input/output mechanism works ok yet it could hardly read anything on any cd.
Yesterday the workshop took it out and concluded that the cd-player will play cd's if it's laying absolutely flat however if it's at the slightest degree of an angle it stops working.
So now the cd-player is a piece of junk. :sick2: But the Electronica 1 cd is fine. :fine:

Can anybody list what exact additional content goes to Fan Box from download? Discogs.com doesn't tell about it.
