I’ve found the combination of lossless files married to tube gear by a Squeezebox to be a musically pleasing and very conveinient way of listening in the 21st century, and there are plenty of tweaks for those whose hobby trancends plug and play.

I do still love vinyl, the dynamics and the experience of the ritual are equally important but it’s tough to change a record when you’re elbow deep in a project.
