Audio Formats & Turntable Recommendations

Jesper Frostgaard asks:
I would love to hear your opinion on what is best – vinyl, cd, streaming or maybe high-res audio (like HD-tracks). And about what you use and how?

Reese Riverson asks:
What turn table would you recommend to buy for those who don’t have a very good one or wish to get one to start collecting or expand upon their vinyl collection?

This RECORD is INSANE – 10 UNIQUE things about it!

Troy Nelson from KEXP joins me to talk about one of the craziest and unique vinyl records ever made: Jack White’s Lazaretto Ultra LP. There are over 10 unique things about it:

-180 gram vinyl
-2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
-1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
-Side A plays from the inside out
-Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
-Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
-Both sides end with locked grooves
-Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
-Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram the first of its kind on a vinyl record
-Absolutely
-Different running order from the CD/digital version
-LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version
