Ginger Baker - Why? New Album at HDT

Recommended Posts

In 24/44.1


This is Jazz. Jazz with African rhythms.


I like it a lot.


SQ is quite good.


DR of the Album download is 14. The Redbook CD sounds good, too, but the DR is only 11. I'm guessing the CD got some mild volume compression so it would sound "modern". But they did the right thing and left the "audiophile" (master?) version without added VC.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +>Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Strip/Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three (on their own electric circuit) >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Path: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Cayin iDAC6 MKII (tube mode) (XLR)>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: Ropieee (RPi3b+ with touchscreen) + Schiit Modi3E to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)
