I listen to a lot of funk music that is driven by drums and bass. Musicians talk about playing with feel and with the LP12 it allows more of this to come through. So bass players do not hit every note with the same velocity (which affects tone and volume) hold the string for the same duration, or hit it in the same way; and you may have heard of ghost notes. And all of these notes need to be tied together correctly. So on a good playback system we should hear all of these nuances. The LP12 does a good job of allowing this to come through. Or indeed it may even add something to the music. I don’t know which but suspect that it is adding a little bit of something, maybe. Other decks can sound too controlled and lacking these nuances that suck emotion out of the music or hyper detailed and the thread of the music is diminished. It might not be the most eloquent explanation but it’s the best I can do right now.I've heard the LP12 described that way before but didn't want to show my ignorance. Are you able to describe what is meant by it, in relation to the LP12?
