In response to a dedicated follower, I thought I'd spill the beans and say that I've been fortunate enough to acquire copies of three "legendary" tomes of audiophile reading:
1. The RCA Bible, by Jonathan Valin
2. The Golden Age of RCA, by James Mitchell
3. Full Frequency Stereophonic Sound, by Moon & Gray
These books have been out of print for several years and have been collectors' items themselves (the RCA Bible is available through Alibris.com for $250!). After some hard searching and the invaluable help of my sister, who was amazingly able to pull some strings to help out her obsessed brother, I was able to land copies of all three without paying a dime. Over the ensuing weeks to months, I will do my best to share some of the wisdom and passages from these volumes. For those who have a passion for collecting audiophile classical records from the "golden age", I sincerely hope that you enjoy this reading.
