It was reassuring to read John Atkinson's "As We See It" column. I'm certainly relieved to find out there are organizations working to improve the sound of audio recordings. I'm extremely disappointed with the sound of the majority of albums I purchase. It would be a godsend if there was a reliable method to determine the sound quality of an album before I plunk down good money.
I've joined the Pleasurize Music Foundation to support their efforts to bring quality sound to recordings. Many others have already done the same and I hope the list will continue to grow.
I hope Stereophile will begin publishing TT Dynamic Range Meter ratings with each recording review.
