Back in the early 1980's, Michael Fremer heard a demonstration of a new recording and playback technology: the Compact Disc. The engineers played a CD of Roxy Music's final LP, "Avalon."
Fremer was not impressed. He began a campaign to tell the world why he thought vinyl LPs sounded better.
At the 2015 AXPONA Audio Con hi-end audio show, Thomas Mulready of CoolCleveland asked Fremer to recreate this comparison between the vinyl and CD versions of Roxy Music's "Avalon," and talk on camera about the differences.
You might be surprised by what they heard.
