Link of the Week

Michael Fremer graduated Cornell University in 1969. He returned last Tuesday to lecture on the advantages of vinyl versus CD’s, MP3's, etc. as part of a series of lectures at Cornell. In addition to having been a comedian among other things, he is now a high-end audiophile. He writes a blog for Ultimate AV and columns for Stereophile Magazine, and has his own blog.
