My friend, please don't speak like a politician with so heavy words and don't change the facts for blaming me.. "rubbish" and "Chinese crap" goes to vinyl records and NOT to people they own them and 'love'..I DO respect all members but I have also learned to tell straight and clearly my opinion independently who is in front of me..

At last it' s a men's forum. what is the 'acceptable' way, to say "what an angelic voice coming out from a garden with red poppies" ??

I do have an old Fiat car and adore it, do you mean if someone tells me that it's a crap shall I feel affected ?? comeooooonnnnn..
Manos_Bits, you have had some VERY strong opinions upon entering my thread...none of them state --"In My Humble Opinion"---or even IMHO:rolleyes:.
Your opinion ( and that is precisely what it is...and nothing more) is that ALL of the Sheffield Lab Direct to Disc LP's are crap. My opinion is that you are talking out of your backside when it comes to these LP's.
One thing I hope that we will agree upon, is that we are both entitled to our opinion.:cool:

Davey,
I have to say the irony is thick here. You're angry that someone entered "your thread" and crapped on product "you like." You reap what you sow my friend. Stop trolling on threads of products you don't like (horns, SME 3012R. etc) and maybe people will refrain from doing it to you on "your threads."

Jeffery, look up the word Troll...as I am very certain that you need to understand the term...and while you're at it...how about looking up the words..ad hominem.
Like I said, and which you clearly failed to read in my post ( or maybe you just did not understand them)...I believe STRONGLY that Manos_Bits is entitled to his opinion...as are you...but i guess I'm not, isn't that right- when it comes to the old war horse that you love so much!
So therefore take a look in the mirror before posting your usual excrement.

Near Atlanta, GA but not too near!
Like in so many other subjects, communication style is critical. I can say something like "I prefer speakers other than horns" or I can say "horns sound like crap". The first is stating your preference the second is "name calling" and I was of the (maybe mistaken) perception that WBF strongly fround on "name calling".

Reminds me of an old boss who once said: "you know you've said it wrong if you can finish a sentence with 'comma, a$$hole' ".

A bit of that going on here.

I agree with this, and I think if anyone looks at my long posting history, I have used these terms on numerous occasions...IMHO. --maybe more than all other posters on this forum...so much so that other members have called me out for it!
Unfortunately, it appears that there are some members here who don't like it ( Will not accept it...under any circumstances) when you have an opinion that is contradictory to theirs, and as such feel it is ok to attack the poster...and not the post. The word 'Troll' then comes into their ongoing vocabulary...and so the victim of their ire is now a Troll. All IMHO...;)

In my humble opinion, we should now get this thread back on track.:D

This just arrived. Bought it from the recommendation of Manos. Superb performance. The musicians were really going at it. I enjoy the performance more than sonic attributes of this direct to disc. No microphone zoom in kind of sound.

Had this for the longest time, and this is a 'unique' D2D in that it has a Cubano Japanese band playing Latin music, produced with Japanese recording engineers. :) Quite awesome sonics, crystal clear, super dynamics, and you get to hear the conductor grunts once in a while in between cuts, he was feelin' it. :D

this is a Toshiba Records ‎– LF series like Jun Fukamachi ‎– Jun Fukamachi At Steinway (Toshiba Records ‎– LF-95001) I mention first in my D2D recomendations here.. fantastic quality records..

and just to remind to all of us, the way we can discrete a Direct to Disk recordings is the lack of tape 'hiss' in the beginning and in the middle-spaces between tracks, that is totally eliminated in D2D records, physically by the absence of a tape recorder (both multichannel and 2 channel)!! If we have a mint D2D record there is nothing but absolute silence before and between the music tracks..
