Additionally, some of Harry Pearson's LP collection has been put up for sale on Audiogon.https://app.audiogon.com/listings?seller_id=13467&show_media=true
Pearson, who passed Nov 14, 2014, founded The Absolute Sound in 1973, and was as responsible as anyone, for how extreme high end audio has become today.
Pearson's the one who took the 60s status quo from "everything sounds the same" "and if you can't measure it, it doesn't exist" philosophy of Julian Hirsch of Stereo Review to "everything sounds different" and let me explain how I hear it differently of Harry Pearson.
Gordon Holt and Stereophile were somewhere in between.
Still though, Pearson is the one who got things rolling to the point it's at today. He promulgated the philosophy of today's high end that the well trained human ear is the ultimate of test equipment you need and that we really don't know how to measure what we can clearly hear. And once you hear it and understand it, there's no going back to the Julian Hirsch way of thinking.
He's also hugely responsible for the resurgence in analog, specifically vinyl, due to the rapid increase in resolving capabilities of today's equipment so we can now easily hear the differences.
Print publications have virtually disappeared in many cases or have gotten far smaller in this digital world. Not this one. The Absolute Sound keeps getting bigger and better.
I still subscribe to both Stereophile and The Absolute Sound in print and it still 'ruins' an evening when either of them arrive. It's cover to cover.
