Back to Mono !

Despite the slogan’s association with fallen genius Phil Spector, there are still many reasons why mono is cool, among them:
  • You can’t listen to Furtwängler any other way.
  • The definitive mix of Pet Sounds is in mono.
  • Rock and roll was born in the monophonic era.
  • The early Beatles albums mono mixes make them sound like a rock band. Even the White Album mono mixes are different enough to be collectable.
  • Mono allows your listening environment to add its own unique ambience to the playback of a recording.
  • Modern digital formats like DVD and MP3 support mono explicitly, so you can fit twice the amount of music in a given amount of space.

P.S.: The new Cul de Sac album is turning out to be rather wonderful.
