I asked Chesky more than once if they had LPs.
Seems all they have is digital.
Haven’t they ever produced vinyl?

Yes; Chesky was one of the earliest reissue houses. And they did a wonderful job!

Thought I knew that Chesky released vinyl.
But do they still have vinyl titles?
If so, I would certainly buy some.

I have listened through these several times. I gotta say, they are doing nothing for me. For context I should say that with reference stereo material my system throws a very wide and deep soundstage that pretty much fills about 50% of my room from my listening chair forward with presence. On these recordings the sound is somewhat indistinct, even a bit 'phasey' sounding with comb filter like effects. It is wide, but just not defined. sometimes a specific instrument or voice pops out clear, but doesn't gel with the rest of the soundscape. And I think the headphone mixes actually sound a bit better played on my speakers than the speaker mix. Also, the program material was not the best to judge this, some being largely electronic without actual room cues etc. Bass was very good though.

David Chesky says in his videos that you have to set up the speakers at a 60 degree angle and that the room should be treated accordingly. Most of us will always do some kind of room treatment anyway, but I consider this 60 degrees loudspeaker settings for maximum direct sound radiation to be a difficult specification, because you can't just realign your speakers every time for the Chesky recordings, because a lot of speakers don't sound good in this setup.

I've always liked his binaural technique. But this time I'm slightly disappointed. It doesn't matter whether I set my loudspeakers to 60 degrees or not, in my previous attempts so far, somehow nothing really came across. Maybe my system is too bad, my room too untreated or the requirements are simply too high. I will start a few more attempts, but for now I agree with Tuckers' opinion. I feel the same way.

I've always loved what David Chesky does. He's a real pioneer. I wish him every success from the bottom of my heart.

High fidelity greetings
