Is there a comparison test between vintage and modern TVs?

It's a stereo test so I'm not surprised that the old equipment sounded good. The equipment I had years ago had very good sound.

Vintage stereo vs. modern surround sound would give different results. The Beethoven symphonies on Blu-ray with surround sound that I now have are vastly superior to the stereo symphonies on vinyl I had 50 years ago. And I now can watch the orchestra in high definition on my 10 foot projection screen (which is far superior to the Kloss Novabeam I had many years ago).

The author says: "So what have all these new features brought us? Surround sound-but most people never hook up those extra speakers." I'm not sure that this is true - actually, I doubt it.

Pioneer SX-1980 Receiver (1978 model) weighed 78 pounds and was rated at 270 watts per channel.

Audio improvements over the years is more about convenience, smaller and lightweight equipment that delivers much better sound than the run of the mill stuff from earlier decades. The lovingly cared for vinyl records with the finest turntables and cartridges are superior to CDs, but CDs produce infinitely better sound than most people scratched up record collections.
