Russell Lichter: “I have been listening to classical music since I was a little kid. Listening to music, really listening, is an act of supreme intimacy and impeccable communication between listener, performer and composer. I have never been able to put into words the complexity and intensity of my feelings hearing Richter playing Beethoven or Michel Block playing Albéniz or Berglund conducting Sibelius. The best I can hope for as a writer is to influence others to partake of the feast.”

Schumann is something of a mystery to me.

I apologize for not writing sooner but I have been so busy meditating on suffering, old age and death, trying to fathom the meaning of my unlikely existence in a universe that is even more unlikely (and increasingly appears to be composed not of quarks or strings, but of imagination), that I’ve had precious little time for the really important things, like whether SACD will become the de facto new standard, or whether the Spectron Digital One amplifier is truly digital in nature.

The world of audiophiles, music lovers all no doubt, can be roughly divided into three camps: those who like the sound of MLP recordings, those who do not like the sound of MLP recordings, and those who have never heard MLP recordings, for whatever reason.
