    That's an interesting subject and you folks here would certainly be among the best to ask. It opens the subject of "Direct to Disc" recordings: a technique I know nothing about. Any thoughts?


    A separate but also interesting subject: Is "remastering" another topic worthy of discussion? 



    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

    Let us know how the soundscape has improved down there @Full Range !

    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.

    Camel use lots of instruments.

    The Glockenspiel? Who was it, Jethro Tull, Mike Oldfield or Rick Wakeman who used it last in a recording?

    I would guess it was none of those, but instead a symphony orchestra, or a percussion ensemble.

    On the song Skylines, one instrument is used that I had when I was a boy 

    It’s a Swanee whistle or sliding whistle

    So you're a repeat offender?  See RevoxB77!  ANOTHER tease...lolol

    I had a Sony R2R in the past 

    It’s probably best to sell the Revox as it runs at the slower speed 

    But you know that we HiFi types procrastinate a lot 🤪

    I"m going "magnetic!"  I see you Mossy.  You're a tease too!  hahaaha!  I could have room now though but i couldn't fit a big TV AND a R2R  on there.  Or could I???

    I have an R2R in storage 

    It’s a Revox B77 -  but the long play model 

    It was originally part of a courtroom setup that came my way

  8. Just found the photos I took back then


    This is the shop 




    And this is the unit I purchased - now a couple of years later it’s got a 70” TV 


    Got the other pieces at the same time

    Thanks for the kind welcome, JohnJ. I'm enjoying the forum; even learning a few things. I don't even remember how I discovered this group but I'm glad I stumbled in. 

    We are just like siblings from different mothers 

    Music and mutual respect is the glue 🖖
