I want to learn more about why CD's loose the magic from some or all vinyl recordings. Where can i read information on what the limitations/problems are. One huge dissapointment was listening to Strawberry fields Forever on CD for the first time, i had to dig up a scratched up vinyl of Magical mystery tour to be sure. Yes half the song was essentially gone, the psychadelic half. Unfortunately this has happened to most of the Beatles recordings.
Is this problem only for analog recordings from the 70's etc - or is this problem present with digital recordings from today?
Anyway, when can i find more articles to clue me in on why this is the case, what is fact or what is imagined. And then i want to dive into understanding equipment, that is what high quality digital equipment improves or elimates this - or high quality analog equipment - why tube amplifiers - i'm going to become a stereophile again!
