Well, the company that's been manufacturing audio gear since 1906 is still going strong, having recently announced at CES 2023 that their next-gen turntable, the Stream Onyx VPT-2000-BLK-ATE, will be coming our way in mid-to-late February.

Pioneering Saxophonist Benny Carter's 1958 Jazz Giant Album Walks Tall on All-Analog 180g Bernie Grundman-Remastered LP From Craft Recordings
In the annals of jazz history, one artist who often gets overlooked was one of the early architects of the saxophone sound and of jazz music itself, for that matter dating back to the 1920s when he was arranging for Fletcher Henderson.

As a matter of fact, it's all dark. Well, let me clarify that -- Pink Floyd's seminal March 1973 The Dark Side of the Moon album is getting a much-anticipated, and quite appropriately lavish, 50th anniversary super deluxe box set release via Pink Floyd Records/Columbia on March 24.

Acoustic Signature's Maximus NEO Turntable Is Max Quiet With a Clean Soundstage and Excellent Dynamics
Some turntables can be true objects of art. Indeed, some 'tables can even look downright exotic or even somewhat otherworldly in the photos we see of them -- but in person and in practice, they actually look quite beautiful, and work really well.

Pressed on Recycled 180g Vinyl, Brian Eno's FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE Is an Environmentally Sound and Emotionally Appealing Thinking Person's LP

In my experiences talking with music fans who appreciate some of Frank Zappa's music, there is a certain type of apprehension I've come across, time and again.

David Crosby Wants You to Feel the Overtones of Musical Freedom by Listening to the Broad Spectrum of His Long and Storied Catalog on High-Grade Vinyl
David Crosby has the voice of an angel. Not only can you hear his distinctive vocal tone coming across pure and true all throughout his most recent studio album, For Free one of AnalogPlanet's Top New LP Releases of 2022, in fact but you can hear his long-entrenched instinct for beautifully layered harmonies on David Crosby & The Lighthouse Band's Live at the Capitol Theatre, currently available in a 1CD/1DVD package via BMG, but (hopefully) coming soon on vinyl.

Last week, I recounted how AP editor Mike Mettler's request to come up with a list of my Top 10 vinyl releases of 2022 has been harder than I imagined it would be. Paring down all the vinyl releases I'd listened to in 2022 into a list of just 10 choices?
