  1. I have some experience with the Dolby Atmos up mixer, a few years ago though. You can get some interesting results with 2 channel to 5.1, 5.4.1 etc. if I want to fool around with 2 channel, just let me use the software myself rather than cutting me off from the traditional content. Just another money grab.
  2. I have the Akiko hamilton recording. Nice sound as most Capri CDs have. The Barber sounds amazing.
  3. Ted, the 32/352.8 file is huge. I can’t imagine how big a DSD 1024 file will be.
  4. Gee, I guess irony truly is dead, at least in regards to mQa.
  5. I only wish I could talk about them. Don’t want to get myself or anyone else into trouble.
  6. This release was recorded at the same time as the Higher release and is a pure studio recording. Hence, I did not expect to hear tons of the room. I was provided with the studio master which I didn’t expect would have a bunch of EQ or compression added or reverb. I now have a few flat transfers from tape and digital recorded in a typical studio prior to the addition of those effects. That type of sound isn’t to everyone’s liking but I just love the pure tone of the instruments and voices. I have seen PB in clubs and she does have some sibilance when she sings. There is a plug in for that but I
  7. I have been listening to this recording over the past week or so. It is scheduled to be released on August 6th. For those who are fans of Ms. Barber and in particular her album Nightclub, you will love this album. It is available this weekend only at Nativedsd.com for purchasers in the US only. It was recorded by Jim Anderson at DXD resolution at 32/352.8 and is available at 24/352.8 and many flavors of DSD. The only PCM variant available is the DXD. I would not post about it because of the later release but it is being offered this weekend so...... I was offered the 32/352.8 file which Audir
  8. Fans of Patricia Barber’s Nightclub may want to check out the weekend exclusive of her forthcoming Clique release which is set to drop in early August. It is available on NativeDSD for US customers this weekend only in 24/352.8 DXD and all flavors of DSD. Fantastic recording all around.
  9. When you can’t attack the data, you attack the messenger. This is right out of the L. Ron Hubbard playbook. The reason the mQa folks want names revealed is so they can attack them personally, make life miserable for them, contact their employers, business and academic associates, threaten lawsuits, get them to lawyer up. This is so utterly transparent, otherwise, they would simply attack the data. The fact that they do not indicates to me that they can’t. This is really all very sad.
  10. Simple appeal to authority.
  11. Good to hear. When the app is available, I will give it a try.
  12. I have known Amir for a long time, back to the HD DVD days and the early days of WBF. Can’t take him seriously. Perhaps this will be the first dent in the cult like thinking over there at ASR.
  13. mQa, the Scientology of audio. You have been declared an SP MikeyFresh. Wear it proudly!
  14. If you have that LP, see if someone can do a needledrop for you at 24/96 and then compare the two. You may be very surprised. When I see remastered, I normally run for the hills. Far too often it means the music is squashed to hell.
  15. Mansr has not posted here since the whole Objectivist thing.
  16. Gee, I just saw that Mansr has received a one week ban at ASR for his anti mQa posts and his not too complimentary posts about Amir. He is angling for a permanent ban. So much for the pure objectivists not being into banning people for contrary opinions.
  17. Amir is now bringing the old line about Archimago not using his real identity. Attack the messenger not the data. So sick of this BS. Irony is truly dead with his appeal to authority with Mr. BS. Imagine if I posted on there defending let’s say Audioquest by saying that if Bill Low says so, it is good enough for me.
  18. Agreed, but the second movement sure sounds like 16 or 17. Goes from a whisper to a bang with space and dimensionality. Effortless sound.
  19. When I listen to the Pittsburg Symphony’s rendition of Bruckner’s Symphony Number 9, I hear excellent dynamics, especially the second movements. I have it in AIFF 24/192. The the CD on dynamic range database has the three movements as 11 9 and 13. Sounds a lot more dynamic than that for me.
  20. Fantastic newish album. AIFF 24/44.1.
  21. How do I give BS the bird, virtually?
  22. Gee, I thought that was obvious....and brilliant. I use it now wherever I post about mQa.
  23. Long time Mac user. I never use ALAC, just WAV, FLAC and AIFF. Most of my files and all of my rips are AIFF, Apple’s version of WAV.
