  1. @Area 51 Audio remastering Remastering can remove or at least minimize unwanted noise and hiss from older monaural or stereophonic sound sources. However, the quality of the useful signal usually suffers as a result. Denoising can produce audible artifacts.

  2. @Area 51 there´s also another DMM process in the market .....so called RESO Mastering RESO Mastering (Reference Sound Mastering), the high definition mastering procedure, provides significant acoustic improvements in transparency, dynamics, bass reproduction and depth differentiation. The music is gaining more atmosphere and emotion. To best transmit this musical experience, instead of a normal CD, a HQCD respectively to get even closer to the master quality, a UHQ-CD is used as sound carrier and instead of normal LP vinyl, 180g audiophile Virgin Vinyl.

  3. DMM - this is the abbreviation for Direct Metal Mastering, which was introduced as a new technology by Teldec at the beginning of the 1980s and has since been used for many new records. In this process, some steps in the production of a record are bypassed, but essentially the pressing die (from which a finished LP will eventually be made) is manufactured differently. It now consists of a copper layer applied to a stainless steel plate. And this copper layer is now cut directly by the cutting stylus, hence the term direct metal mastering. Too complicated? That's right, it's very technical and you don't need to know the details. But what is important and here we are at the clear advantage of this DMM process: the highs usually sound much more brilliant and clear with a DMM than with a normally manufactured LP (lacquer foil, foil cut). Also, there are no pre-echoes due to this, because the hard metal is less susceptible to cutting than with the lacquer foil. Overall, you can also get more playing time on one LP side, which was quite a significant argument in the 80s.

  6. Yesterday Comcast Business installed Internet and phone for our home-based business. So far so good. It was a good omen when the technician looked at my basement setup and said, “Heresys. Can I hear them?” He has been contemplating purchasing Heresys of some variant. I turned off the four Anarchy Exodus tapped horn subs and explained how my HIPs with Crites CT120 tweeters, re-coned EV woofers and modified network’s were not exactly representative of all other Heresys. Eventually he asked to add in the subs. He seemed pleased.

  11. the same from me... y'all have a good and safe.... bird is in the oven. We are gonna have lots of stuffing/dressing. Just for the record, I call it stuffing if you take it out of the bird... dressing if it's made in a pan, on the side. I can take a nap now. Last night, I ate half a pumpkin pie, making sure it was edible. I'm not sure yet... May need to do another sampling

  14. In 1987, Parsons completely remixed the album, including additional guitar passages and narration (by Orson Welles) as well as updating the production style to include heavy reverb and the gated reverb snare drum sound, which was popular in the 1980s. The CD notes that Welles never met Parsons or Eric Woolfson, but sent a tape to them of the performance shortly after the album was manufactured in 1976.

  15. Not contentious like the cable subject but like "It's not cold." between two people that grew up 1000 miles apart longitudinally. MFSL did their LPs bass revealing several times that I know of. Did the regular pressings just miss out on representing the music? Half-Speeds can reveal everything especially the imaging if you have your rig set up right. That premium vinyl does sound better when some companies use it to press music on. Master Tapes won't lie. Remasters are like when a director/musician puts his arrangement to Handel's "Messiah". Cutting out Vincent Price's short narrative on that Alan Parson's Project lp frustrated me looking to replace my worn out original. Two or three years ago RUSH re-released their whole catalog in a heavy 200 gram "Direct-to-Metal" pressing. This has been interesting to me since. I knew these songs for decades and was hearing nuances (across the full frequency range) & in the percussion that only Neal could have done! Those really enhanced the treble and I had to activate and use the tone controls on my new rig to take an edge off. Some of the re-releases try to fix problems in regular, non Klipsch peoples stereos. My Klipsch did not need any help revealing mids and highs so there. I did not buy them all, my old ones were good. Regret that, now those released a couple years ago are $$$. My 2 cents!

  16. It’s been a wet week here and that is great for no static Can’t fault the Sansui AU717 At some point in the future I will have it fully recapped with my preferred capacitors - Elna Silmic or Audionote Kaisei It’s history of work is now known after its recent checkup - it’s had limited work done. So if I want it to perform at its best for many years to come it will need a full recap and service.

  17. there wasn´t any Octoberfest in whole of germany in 2021 ....we got the fourth covid wave in germany , even with approx. 70 % vaccinated population. The whole country is under the 2G rule ( Vaccinated or convalescent) in public life, 3G partially ( Vaccinated Convalescent, Tested ) unvaccinated are excluded from public life in the meantime, so it is with the personal rights to a free life in Germany.

  18. I haven't noticed that on the one's I've picked up. Everything seems cleaner and tighter and if anything lacking some bass for the most part. That's the LS way though I guess. They're not lacking when they hit those twin 18's though. hahaha

  19. What you want is from original master tapes As for direct to disc or remastered the sound depends on the human called the engineer and how his ears perceive the output Most remastered releases tend to be bass heavy overpowering the rest But some engineers get it just right, so reviews on any release you are interested is is best

  23. On October 3, 2021, we celebrate not only the Day of German Unity but also the Harvest Festival. Thanksgiving Sunday is one of the oldest religious festivals, which is associated with some customs, similar to your " Thanksgiving".

  24. Let me start off by saying Happy Thanksgiving!! 🦃 I would also like to say since joining this fantastic forum that actually has discussion sub-forums for amplifier technologies, and there are intelligent members that are into building and designing equipment I feel right at home. I was very excited to see some even using LTSpice. On to the good stuff. There was a new thread about a 300b amplifier build along with a discussion about the drivers stage. Since these DHT are so linear but require a very large voltage swing to drive to full power the majority of amplifiers you have heard you are actually hearing the driver more than the 300b. Since SET amplifiers are my absolute favorite topology I have spent a lot of time trying many different drivers. This thread is to discuss drivers and front end tubes driving your beloved SET amplifiers. I will be posting many different types of circuits and their performance, if you have a specific tube you are interested in let me know and I will put it into simulation to check the results. On to the fun!!

  30. I hope you don’t have La Scalas or some other formidable such Klipsch speaker to transport, when I was younger I moved my Chorus II’s by myself. But that was many Advil’s ago 😃

  31. Glad it's all sorted out. I've always moved the audio gear and instruments myself. the last to get packed and the first to set up, so we had music to pack and unpack by. It has become harder as the speakers have become larger.... 🙄
