THe HA folk don't seem to pay SHtv much attention, except once in a blue moon to dismiss it along with places like Audio Asylum as hopeless.

BTw, I can't access that SHtv thread...did the whole thing get deleted since THurs?

True dat. For completeness' sake I'll also do a DAD of the CD layer.

Thanks for the clips.

I find the extra resolution due to just a quality mastering capturing lots of detail on the master tape, much like the DCCs. Sorry, but this sort of statement is just a cloud of vagueness to me. Sorry, that was my attempt at humour. http://stevehoffman.tv/forums/showpost.php?p=3690456&postcount...

Tommy (two channel) 'Overture' comparison

I've made an A/D capture from the SACD DSD layer, a rip of the DVD-A PCM version, and a rip of the SACD CD layer. So far they're all objectively very much alike. I'm curious to compare them to some older CD versions, but I no longer own any. If anyone is willing to upload flacs of same, let me know....

Daltrey always complained that his vocals were too low in the mix. So the remix attempted to address that, I guess. I presume it's Townshend-approved.

article of Townshend recording methods

This board's Who obsession is quite alien to me, but I'm happy to pass this along as a possible item of interest. I haven't read it myself, saw the link posted on an audio newsgroup.
