If you scour the Web for information on tonearm and cartridge setup, you'll find people being way over the top, swearing that everything has to be perfect down to the gnat's eyelash. Fremer knows what matters and what doesn't, not just for having done it, but for having listened to the results of his efforts. If anyone is the last word on this topic, it's Fremer.
People have complained that the production is amateurish and Fremer's humor is lame. I'm somewhere in the middle on those two points (he has worked successfully as a standup comic), and, regardless, think both are irrelevant to my purpose for buying the DVD. I do value the information he provided on the historical evolution of vinyl as a recording medium. I enjoyed his extended interview with a recording engineer and learned some things I'd missed over the years. The PDF file provided with the video also includes a lot of useful information.
I can't recommend this product enough!
Very, very highly recommended.
