    Even if it makes perfect sense it still needs an Engineer's Orange to English translator

    I've found that 45rpm make for a better sound with high quality pressings, then we have the half speed mastering concept that MFSL pioneered back in the late 1970's, much better for all vinyl fiends

    Great read, thanks!

    The MFSL 45rpm of Alan Parson's "I Robot" is amazing! Mastered at 22 1/2 rpm! I have a few 12" 45 singles, records that a DJ would play at a disco, that have amazing dynamics. I'm all for ditching 33 1/3 in favor of double-disc 45 releases.

    I don't think even leafy green could have that effect

    Yes, interesting.
    And it all made perfect sense to me. But of course, an engineer I am.
