MICHAEL FREMER'S IT'S A VINYL WORLD, AFTER ALL (DVD)
Learn turntable set-up and the best ways to handle, store, clean and care for your valuable records from noted analog expert and leading authority Michael Fremer. Fremer is a senior contributing editor at Stereophile Magazine and publishes the online Music Angle. He is the No. 1 vinyl authority in the audio world and had been asked by readers for many years to develop a video guide for setting up a quality turntable and tonearm. The guide, with a running time of 3 hours 9:39 minutes, is both exhaustive and succinct.
Tour the famous Diepolz, Germany Pallas pressing plant with Fremer and see how they plate lacquers and press records at Europe's premier pressing plant. Then visit Record Technology Incorporated (RTI) and see how America's best record manufacturer does it. Eavesdrop on a mastering session with Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at famed AcousTech Mastering, the world's only mastering room located within a pressing plant. Additional interviews with RTI's Don MacInnis and Pallas's Holger Neummann. Includes PDF file on the DVD-ROM section containing more useful information.
Shot in high definition and released on DVD in a letter-boxed format, this DVD is even more informative and entertaining than Fremer's first highly acclaimed DVD "21st Century Vinyl: Michael Fremer's Practical Guide to Turntable Set-Up." If you enjoyed, appreciated and laughed along with the first one, you'll love this one from the opening minute.
