Dynagroove

Postby Slartibartfast » Mon Apr 21, 2008 2:26 pm

I found this sample album at the vinyl store today. It only cost $1.00. It is in great shape, no scratches.

Anyway the liner notes say that "Dynagroove" is the best thing since the invention of the LP.

It was developed by RCA. The date on the album is 1964

Does anyone else remember this?

quoting: In 1963, Stereophile's founder J. Gordon Holt published attacks on what he saw as the single largest step backward in high-fidelity sound reproduction at that time: RCA's introduction of "Dynagroove" LP records, where the recorded signal was pre-distorted and dynamically equalized to compensate for the poor performance of cheap phonograph players.
