It's ironic that some of us have spent a lot of time and effort building a vinyl playback system that clearly reveals the differences in the recording curves. How sweet would it be to twist an otherwise-non-intrusive knob to set the playback curve correctly for a given label, or a given year of a given label, for that matter?  I have some otherwise-nice recordings of excellent performances that are recorded with curves my system renders in various versions of what I think of as the "coffee can sound".

RIAA is a nice idea, and a good one, as far as it goes, but...

I would hate to be stuck trying to dial in any of the curves by ear!


Best regards,
