Things you might want to know
One of the nice things about the internet is the availability of helpful information and videos. As I find trustworthy sources for helpful information that relates to vintage audio gear, I will post. If you are a veteran audio lover, you’ll no doubt already have many sites bookmarked. Information specific to formats can be found in the Audio Format section of this site. The goal of this page is to guide people just getting into audio, or who’ve been away for so long, they feel like a newbie getting back into the groove.
