    Merging Horus/Hapi update

    New Merging AKD8DP A/D card for the Horus! We'll see who is boss against my Playback Designs Pinot!
    As stated in an earlier thread, I'll be posting files of recordings done with this and the Pinot. These 2, in my opinion, are the best A/D converters we have today.

    I really hope you will reproduce a DSD 11.2 MHz remaster of "Sheffield Lab Drum & Track" by using Pyramix/HAPI with such ADC modules!

    There are several of the Sheffield Lab direct to disc recordings that would be great transferred from Analog to DSD now that they are long out of print.
    Would love to see that.

    Direct To Disc recordings don't have any Master Tape from which to make any more pressings.
    Turntable/Arm - Yamaha GT 2000/Yamaha YSA-1
    Cartridge - Soundsmith The Voice(Ebony)
    Phono stage - Moon LP 5.3
    Preamp - Hornshoppe The Truth
    Speakers - KRK Expose E8B Mastering Monitors

    Turntable support counts as another component. 21 Clearaudio Magix and more.

    As it turns out, in many cases there is an Analog Tape recording of Direct to Disc sessions.

    I suspect that was the case with the Sheffield recordings as well.
    That would explain the Stereo CD editions of these albums that have been issued to date.

    The fact that there were tapes made does not correct the error in your previous post.

    If a vinyl record is a Direct To Disc Recording it was made without any Master Tape. The fact that a tape copy might have been made simultaneous to cutting the D2D doesn't negate that truth. Any vinyl record made from a Master Tape is not a Direct To Disc recording.

    splitting hairs I think with that distinction. bmoura is correct on both levels. tapes are often made from the same mic feed as the DTD, and DTD pressings are used as commercial analog sources for digital too.

    one was actually done in my room (and Bruce Brown recorded and mastered it). when Winston Ma bought the rights of the DTD pressing and used my Rockport Sirius III turntable as the source for a Ultra CD release, Jun Kukamachi, At Steinway (take 2)

    then there is the Jeton DTD pressing source for the CD with Ray Brown and Laurindo Almeida 'Moonlight Serenade'
