I've been reading Sound & Vision since I stole the issue listing that big ass 70 inch Sony Qualia that didn't have a HDMI input as "The Worlds Best" from a community college waiting room. Since then I've kind of weened myself off the video and leaned alot more towards the sound. Unfortunately that change took my attention away from sound and vision, but today I came across the recent issue and really enjoyed the "Maxium Impact" article. During my little sabbatical I turned into a novice audiophile, as I found myself seemlying addicted to current issues of stereophile maginze. As of recently they did a tribute to the late J Gordon Holt, in which they quoted one of his rules on audio engineering or reviewing. The quote was based off what wiki is calling "Holt's Law" and went something like the better the recording, the worse the musical performance—and vice-versa.
I woke up this mourning thinking about taking the good with the bad, controling people, and keeping things authenic. I even thought about the LCD and Plasma TV's battles in correlation to this revaltion. Organic vs Synthenic seemed to be the them of the day as I woke up somewhere I shouldn't be because somebody wants me to be somebody I'm not. I said to myself that the best I could do was be open minded, but at the end of the day I have to do me. Which brings me back to telling you about how much I liked that Maxium Impact article. I'm not a Foo Fighters Fan and have never heard a Foo Fighters album in my life, but that 1 inch analog tape idea is ****ing genius. Talk about that old saying if you love someone let them go and if it comes back. Now thats what I call authenic. I thinking you guys might just make me renew my sound and vision subscription. I just wanted to tell you good job and that you have a friend in me.
