Issue #75 May-June 2008
Ive got an old MacIntosh amp and I plugged in the turntable and hooked up the speakers in another room. It just kind of almost hurts your heart, just putting the needle down and hearing the music come out. Its either Im really old or there really is a difference. And I think theres a difference.
