The fact my listening position is one very comfortable recliner has nothing to do with this opinion...
Just need to move your TT next to your recliner so you don't need to get up to flip sides. With a bit of practice, feel sure you can safely flip the LP without any danger to the stylus/cantilever.

That said, I'll likely stick with 33s.

I have a slightly different take. I find that, rather than paying more attention to the music, the end of the short side breaks my focus on the music. A side that was meant to be listened to in its entirety is now interrupted, breaking my concentration and enjoyment. I agree there can be an improvement in sound quality, but for me it's not worth it because of the impact it has on the flow of the music and the listening experience.

That's why I record my 45 double LP's to open reel. Sonic heaven.

I understand your point. I grew up in the 50’s forward, so flipping records isn’t a distraction for me, just part of the overall experience. We collected singles. I have tons of singles even now. For me, The Beatles is best served on singles … it’s just the way we played them - part of my experience.

So, I’m use to it and for me I listen closer, because I know I have to get up at a particular point and do the flip. IMO I’ve became a better listener because of it. I hear details that otherwise I may have missed. And I so enjoy those details.

But I understand your point and so I have a lot of 33s as well and of course CDs and streaming …. but ultimately the 45s continue to impress and I get more than one song now!

I'm not far behind you, I grew up in the 50s-60s, but I never got into singles, I came of age with LPs, so that may partly explain my aversion to the 45. I had to wait for the Beatles albums to play them on the Zenith console[emoji41].

Ditto, though we had a Magnavox.

Anyone know the provenance of the masters used to cut this new release? The original vinyl was mastered off of a 24/96 digital mix by Scott Hull. He’s mastering this 45 rpm re-issue as well but the Acoustic Sounds write up doesn’t mention the provenance of the master. I ask because there were also analog backups made.
