Hiromi - Spark


One and a half

Recommended Posts

Drooling here, the new Hiromi Album with Jackson and Phillips released in Japan Feb 3 2016. The e-onkyo is a 96/24. However, Hiromi has worked with Gus Skinas and talking DSD, so perhaps a small wait for the SACD or DSD download to come.

Anyone bought from e-onkyo from outside Japan successfully in the last month?

A SACD is unlikely. Her past SACD releases are from the time with Telarc. Telarc stopped releasing SACDs at some point (even for classical recordings made in DSD), was bought by Concord which also stopped releasing SACDs.

 

Edit: I just noticed that two later Hiromi albums, "Move" and "Voice", were release on SACD in Japan (single layer SHM-SACDs)

Received yesterday. When it comes to the end of the disk, there's an awwww, the music is good, and it is.

 

There's more structure in this album than for Alive!, rhythmic, even melodic at times, wow, surprised,and enjoyable. Only had a short listen, if you wish a reference recording for how drums are played, keep this album in mind for Simon Phillips' excellent work as an acoustic as well as a musical benchmark. He plays better than Keith Moon, with the deepest respect.

 

The album was recorded to a Sonoma workstation in DSD, talk of a 96/24 version but when?

 

Recommended for jazz/fusion even for (prog) rock fans there's something for you here.

 

Hiromi is one remarkable woman.

Of the two...... thumbs up to the SHM-CD, it's no slouch compared to the 96/24, tonally the fine line better than the hires.

 

What do you mean by "tonally the fine line better than the hires"? Are you saying you prefer the "tone" of the CD?

Hey MQA, if it is not all $voodoo$, show us the math!

Hm, have you seen that's almost no room for the dynamic :-/ Hot mastered with too high TPL - shame :-/

Yeah I do, has more character if that's a distinction.

 

Hum, to what in your opinion would you attribute this? Does your DAC have a "sweet spot" for 16/44? Or would you say there is a difference in the mastering of the recording itself?
