Oh yes, I remember it.
I have to chuckle when I meet people who talk endlessly about how CDs are very 'flat' compared to records, about the cabling they have just paid £30 a metre for to their speakers, how MP3 downloads are even worse etc.
When I first started listening to music, I had a mono tape recorder with a hand held mike that I had to hold up to the radio.
Then I got a stereo cassette player with dolby. God, did I feel state of the art (thanks Dad)
Today I have an Iphone and Spotify account and a pair of Bose headphones. I doubt the outlay for this in real terms was that much more than for the stereo cassette (as I said, thanks Dad).
I can download almost anything I want in sound quality that was unimaginable when I was a child.
Yet still some people bang on about the sound quality of downloads.
They have no idea.
