Does the 'Perfect Sound' Exist?
Sonny Bunch hosts The Bulwark Goes to Hollywood, featuring interviews with folks who have their finger on the pulse of the entertainment industry during this dynamic—and difficult—time.
On this week’s episode, I talk to The Washington Post’s Geoff Edgers about his latest feature, “The Search for the Perfect Sound.” The boom in vinyl has led to a lot of questions about whether or not the new pressings hitting store shelves at astronomical costs are, you know, any good. Purists are distraught at the very thought of digital techniques being used in the creation of analog sound. Why do some records sound better than others? And how much can it cost to achieve sonic perfection? If this episode left you feeling nostalgic for the stacks of records you grew up spinning, make sure to share it with a similarly inclined friend!
