Regarding limitations of people's audio equipment. In a way I understand what you are saying but my experience is somewhat different. IMO you can hear relative differences on simpler rigs too. For me when I get better equipment it is more like you move the whole scale further up and the SQ of the different LP's stay the same relative to each other. My best sounding LPs from when I was a kid still sound good today albeit with a higher sound quality. The next best still sound next best and the worst are still crap. My point is that just because someone exclaims that "this is the best I heard" and has not top of the line equipment we should listen to that voice also. BTW I played some songs again from the LP and it does indeed sound sweet.
