SH Spotlight I'm asked stuff: Favorite mastering engineer, best BOSTON CD, best TRAVELING WILBURYS CD, etc..

Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by Steve Hoffman, Oct 3, 2018.

  1. @Steve Hoffman advice for mono carts? (Affordable mono carts, please). I have rare mono vinyl and I want to do some good needledrops. I know you've said just to use stereo carts on new issue mono (which I also have), but for original mono pressings what mono cart options of today would you recommend?

    Not sure what affordable is, but the Audio-Technica AT-MONO3/LP is well regarded. Used to sell for closer to $100 and maybe there still are sources out there closer to that, but current MSRP seems to be $189

    Dear Mr. Hoffman: you might know something about this - why does Leon Russell's "This Masqurade" sound like (for want of a technical term) it was recorded through the thin wall of an adjacent room in a lonely hotel? I actually love how it sounds, but I wonder if anyone ever attempted to remix it (at the time or later).

    The entire album sounds like it was recorded in the back of a bus.
