    Videos of Acoustically-Coupled Audio Recordings

    I think a missing element in all this is experience . We arent Naturally able to different between quality of systems, and authenticity to instrument timbre, it’s learnt over time the brain has an amazing ability to interpret through less than stellar sound quality i believe this also happens...

    I agree PeterA it takes some guts to vid your room, and equipment and sound if Ron gets nothing out of it, and others do, I am unclear why he even participates in this thread , is he just “having a go” as we say in Australia, because Ked, et al, enjoy it and do it a lot ?…. it seems a...

I have two rigs, a headphone rig with lh labs dac, and three driver headphones and a separates rig with a chord Dave, a digital buffer, a clock and bakoon amps connected to fat lady speakers, with...

    I appreciate Ron might have a purist mentality , but there is the practical reality I at least have in an audiophile barren environment of listening to exotic or rare equipment Ked, PeterA, and Tăng have shared a wealth of experiences with me, yes , on a reduced bandwidth but, I feel I have...

    Videos of Acoustically-Coupled Audio Recordings

    I think Peter A has created a standard with his vids which if followed over time show differences, are these accurate to the actual live presentation I don’t know I listened to my own recent vids and actually find them with considerable qualitative similarities to my room i have to confess...

    Zero Distortion: Tango Time

    I preferred the second is that A , but there was noise in the left channel panned way left as I heard it, but not in the AB track the cello had much more detail and realism in the A version ( second) and piano seemed set back in soundstage as you would expect, in the AB first version they...

    Ron, I believe in a horn, the colder air is denser, and changes the impedance in the throat of horn, and is thus more efficient as there is less of an impedance mismatch between the driver and the horn throat air

    Do Mobile Fidelity Vinyl Re-issues Have a Digital Step in the Process?

    The only bright spot possibly is a greater transparency in the industry of provenance i note the recent article on the remixing of Revolver, where the mixing engineer was quite candid about a digital step involved in the remixing personally I have never been a great fan of reissues , but...

    Do Mobile Fidelity Vinyl Re-issues Have a Digital Step in the Process?

    these are just speculators as on any investment and not important to the salient issues they purchased an item of apparent collector value based on exclusivity which in fact didn’t exist from alleged false claims

    Do Mobile Fidelity Vinyl Re-issues Have a Digital Step in the Process?

    Ron seriously this is missing the whole point no-one denies that some albums sound very good , I like digital , it can sound great the point is they claims it was one step rather than multistep, and exclusive rather than multicopy which is what made mass copies of thriller expose the...
