Added to the Archives This Week

Online readers rejoice: Stereophile is posting the first of what we hope will be many equipment reviews in our Archives database. First up is the Linn Sondek CD12 CD player (recently reviewed in Stereophile), along with a review of the Linn AV 51 System (from the February 1999 issue of Stereophile Guide to Home Theater).

John Atkinson lays out the basics of why cables do sound different from one another in "Wired!": "Some, none, or all of these factors may play a role in cable 'sound.' What I don't understand is why responsible engineers would dismiss any of them out of hand."

And as if that weren't enough, we finish up with 1998's "Records To Die For".
