I've been listening to the new 25th anniversary remaster of Buena Vista Social Club.




On first listen, this new version seems to have slightly better SQ than the DVDA 24/96 from 2000. Not a huge jump, but subtly better. The second disc of bonus tracks is mildly interesting.

Source please!

Flat transfer of the master tape DSD64 played as 24/176.4. Fantastic.




Where can I get this, Joe?

Edgy and dull and cut a six inch valley
Through the middle of my skull

Acoustic Sounds sells the Japanese SHM SACD. 

I think there was another Esoteric Japanese SACD of it. 

One or both  might be available at Japanese sites.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Love this cover!


Covering some bands is really difficult, IMO Metallica does Metallica best (and they probably know it) so I guess they said to the musicians participating in this project: it cannot sound like Metallica..

It is cheap and all money goes to charities.

And it is better than one might expect (24-96).
