  3. Classical New Releases

    Great, thank you!!!
  4. Classical New Releases

    https://www.talkclassical.com/28254-new-releases.html This thread in the Talk Classical forum stays on top of these things pretty well.
  5. Classical New Releases

    Preorder at HMV Japan with a release date of April 20; available right now on Tidal. The Beethoven Quartet played from the 30's to the 70's, these recordings are from the late 60's and early 70's, and somehow they sound like a single musician playing all the instruments at the same time. For me this is the greatest Beethoven quartet cycle ever recorded, very happy it's finally available!
  6. Schubert 960

    Also Afanassiev on ECM. So what were Badura-Skoda and his wife doing, return off center pressings?
  7. Mosaics you’re still on the hunt for

    Miles Davis Complete 1963-64 Columbia recordings, the vinyl set. Seems to be quite rare now.
  8. The mother (or father) of all box sets!... Ordered instantly. https://www.criterion.com/boxsets/1427-ingmar-bergman-s-cinema
  9. Coltrane: Both Directions At Once (lost album)

    Ordered the deluxe vinyl edition. 11383 sounds very good!
  10. The reality is that the material that Mosaic tends to issue is de facto public domain by now, for better or worse. On top of it, LP sized boxes filled with cd's might have worked 20 years ago, but not so much now. Would it be impossible for them to licence some of this material for high resolution transfers and put them on blu ray discs? I would be very interested.
  11. Yes

    They could also do this:
  12. Holy cow, Cubs win the World Series!!!
  13. YEN 200.000 (=USD 1.900+) ....

    Contains a pure LP from the DSD master...It don't get no purer than that!
  14. https://www.amazon.ca/Impulse-At-50-Black-Orange/dp/B005ORVN1O/
  15. Impulse at 50 box set: here we go again!...

  16. Mini guitar amps?

    How about a Pignose? https://www.amazon.com/Pignose-7-100-Legendary-portable-amplifier/dp/B0002D0JZ6
  17. Tonight I compared vinyl, CD, and HD audio

    Well in my experience digital can _start_ to close the gap with vinyl if you have a proper D/A converter. I only started to get acceptable sound from cd's once I got the Oppo 105 player. The typical cd/dvd/blu-ray player sounds bad, especially with cd media. By the way, I'm talking here strictly about older, analogue recordings on vinyl vs cd. New digital recordings sound much better, but again, it takes quality playback equipment to get all the benefits. Edit: To the OP, your Grado Red cartridge might be holding you back a bit.
  18. Tonight I compared vinyl, CD, and HD audio

    I believe you picked the wrong albums for this comparison, W & W sounds like crap in any medium. Try some Henry Cow, Pink Floyd "The Wall", Queen "A Night At The Opera", Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" or " Bitches Brew", "Duke Ellington with John Coltrane", or any Led Zep. In all of the above, and many others, vinyl sounds better than digital. I also know cases where the cd sounds better, but they seem to be fewer.
  19. I see Ellington vol. 2, Live Monk and Blakey. If anyone needs Ellington vol. 1, popmarket still has it at a reasonable price. Looks to be out of print and it goes for silly money on amazon.
  20. David Bowie has died.

  21. More boxes from Sony

    Crap, you're right!... My order shows the same thing. Oh well...
