Default Bob Dylan Has Re-Recorded Classic Tracks With T Bone Burnett to Introduce New Analog

Interesting article -

https://variety.com/2022/music/news/...um-1235241159/

Interesting paragraphs

Quote:
An Ionic Original is the pinnacle of recorded sound. It is archival quality. It is future proof. It is one of one. Not only is an Ionic Original the equivalent of a painting, it is a painting. It is lacquer painted onto an aluminum disc, with a spiral etched into it by music. This painting, however, has the additional quality of containing that music, which can be heard by putting a stylus into the spiral and spinning it.

When describing the quality that raises analogue sound above digital sound, the word “warmth” is often used. Analogue sound has more depth, more harmonic complexity, more resonance, better imaging. Analogue has more feel, more character, more touch. Digital sound is frozen. Analogue sound is alive.

Agreed!


And we have to ask ourselves will the new format last? How much for the initial investment? What type of cart does it use? Will my current TT play it, or will I need a new one that plays XX instead (or including) the 33 and 45.

I’ll have to learn a lot more before I purchase one and I prefer to play more than just one record

Here's Fremer's take on this - clearly some marketing hype involved, and several unanswered questions.

I have a strange feeling this "breakthrough" isn't going to catch on.
