Re: Audio Fidelity - Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme

http://stevehoffman.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=203582 I have written on the other board that I wanted to try to reproduce Jamie Tate's results about the Audio Fidelity CD "Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme". I have the AF remaster and the 1980s CD (CBS label, CDCBS 32031, matrix CDCBS-628...

Rather than compare a rip to a 96/24 dub, shouldn't he have done 96/24 dubs of both? That's where this test is flawed. We don't know what that D/A A/D conversion is doing to the DSD signal. Aslo, he recorded the SACD layer around -3dB. How'd he lower the signal? Did he lower it in the analog domain...

You're close. I hear a bit more bass on the CD w/EQ and more top end on the LP. The upper range of the vocals are a bit muted on the CD/EQ version. The LP is slightly more open in that area.

Really? Can you hear a difference?

I've ceased being surprised at how *bad* a lot of dubs are that people cream over. You'd be appalled at how much low end EQ the Mickboy version has. Bleck! Then again, so are many of the things I've heard coming from some people over at SH.tv. Like all those early CD's everyone seems to love source...

If I may ask, how does something too de-clicked sound? I mean, I can set a plug-in to do some nasty things. Well, you just explained that you can go over board with the processing, so you obviously know what that would sound like. ... but as long as you do things within reason, I'd be hard pressed ...

The Mickboy CD is way too EQ'd. The bottom end is silly. Chris' original transfer sounds so much better, IMHO.

Both are a little too de-clicked for my tastes though. Todd Fredericks is still the king of elimnating noise from needle drops.
