Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1
Good hunting. It is more "laid back" and not as "immediate". There is also less inner detail, decay and echo, but it is extremely natural and Sonic Youth Sonic Nurse. Some listeners may even prefer it for that reason.
This exceedingly Hector Rivera At The Party With Hector Rivera Vivaldi record is also within The Divinity.
See the description just above. A reader has compared the various pressings of this incredible LP. He has sent me the results over time, and I have reorganized and edited his three letters in an effort to make them more easily understandable.
Here it is, with my bold :. In order of what I presume is manufacture date, they show:. White cover promo has a White label with Black printing and, Side 1 stamper mark is '1' barely visible to left of EDP oval Side 2 stamper mark is 'S-2'. Blue cover 1 has an off-White label with Blue printing and, Side 1 stamper mark is '2' Side 2 stamper mark is 'S-3'. Blue cover 2 has a Blue label with Silver printing and, Side 1 stamper mark is 'S-3' inverted - written in the stamper normally, so backwards on the LP Side 2 stamper mark is 'S-4' also inverted.
The 'S2' type marks that I'm referring to are close to either side of the EDP stamp which is inside an oval. If you hold the Masterdisk RL mark at the position, these are located at about 7 o'clock a little more than degrees. They are very lightly hand inscribed.
As you know, the 'conventional wisdom' is that earlier stampers are better than Foster Jackson Group Feel The Spirit Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1. I have bought a lot of collections over the past 10 years and often have multiple copies of lp's and so have done quite a bit of comparing - just so I can decide which one to keep for myself.
I find that usually earlier is better assuming it's from the same master disk. However, there are a lot of exceptions, and in my opinion, this is one. But after much back and forth to the TT and lots of hand-wringing, here's my ideas about them:. The promo copy is definitely more Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1, for lack of a better term. The strings really bloom at the peaks. It almost as if this version is playing at a higher volume than the others, Helene Marc The Beginning of course is impossible, but that's how it feels.
Because of the highly reverberant recording location, though, I think the body obscures some detail and the imaging is less precise than the other two copies. It's possible that on a top-level audio system the detail would be preserved. It is, for those who care, on slightly heavier vinyl. Note- It is VERY possible likely eventhat this is the version which the original TAS reviewer would have received, and that resulted in the 'pan' review you mention!
Blue Cover 1 is the best to my ear and with the limited system I'm on right now. It keeps most of the fullness of the promo version, while having a wider, much more defined soundstage and better 'space' between instruments. It is easier to listen to. Mid-weight vinyl. Blue cover 2 the latest pressing It's overall thinner and in Donny Hathaway The Ghetto sense easier to understand, but it lacks a level of 'bloom' that the other two have and there is a small but noticeable reduction in that rosiny grind of the period string Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1. This actually might be the copy for people who really hate the reverb level here.
BB King Deuces Wild suspect you may have heard from some people like that. It may be the same actual weight vinyl, but it's a little floppier formulation than 1. Of course, as you say, none of this really matters because it's hard enough to find any copy! This LP has phenomenal sonics. In fact, this may be the finest original non-reissue orchestral pressing I've ever heard from any label.
The LP excels in every sonic area, but especially in dynamics and bass reproduction. The "soundstage" is also large and focused. There are two potential non-sonic problems: First, the words and "music" are quite morbid and eerie; being concerned with disease, death and rats. This is not an LP you will play for "enjoyment". In fact, a medal should be earned just to finish it.
Second, this LP has been on The Absolute Sound list for some time, and only a few pressings were ever made of this unusual work. The Gerhard made the list because it is the most impressive, spectacular and demanding, though the Messiaen is close behind, and it is included within The Basic List. This is one of the greatest orchestral LPs of all time. It is incredibly immediate, transparent, dynamic and has superb low-level and inner detail.
The tonal balance is also very natural. The soundstage is somewhat upfront, which is its only noticeable "weakness". While the entire LP is special, one part is particularly noteworthy The harmonic texture, sense of presence and primal power of the lower brass in the "Catacombs" section near the end of Side 1 is Unforgettable. It has since lost that distinction itself, but it is still unique and indispensable. I've never seen this record recommended elsewhere or even reviewed.
In fact, most "collectors" dismiss this record, just because it isn't an "Original". Their ignorance and prejudice will be the purchaser's gain. It also not equal Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1 the "Pictures" in sonics, which is why it is not listed in the title above.
Comparison-Mobile Fidelity Vs. Since the Mobile was already in The Divinityan even better pressing of this recording -which is also easier to find- would be a highly desirable change of status indeed. Unfortunately, this is NOT the case. The Mobile is cleaner, more immediate and transparent, with better dynamics and it has a lower sound-floor, allowing more tiny details to be heard, not only of the music, but even the noises of the conductor and orchestra.
Bottom Line - One LP is "excellent", while the other is truly "great". This is another instance of "reissue bias" trumping obvious technical superiority. Yes, most LP reissues don't equal the originals, but sometimes the reissues are actually as good Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1 even better, and denying that reality is both self-defeating and ignorant.
This is a magnificent 2 LP album, that should be in every record collection. In effect, it is the "highlights" of all the most famous Romantic ballets, by Tchaikovsky, Delibes etc. The sound is exceptional in every way, and particularly outstanding in outer detail and dynamic qualities. The Bruckner George SzellCleveland Orchestra Symphony No 3 In D Minor is also BIGand the instruments actually seem Seafoam Ambergris EP large as they are in real life.
The only problem that keeps this set from the very top is a noticeable hiss and veil that both obscures some low-level detail and removes the elusive "alive" quality that only the very finest LP's possess.
It is similar to the problem the Mercury-Ravel had. However, the "hiss" is only obtrusive on Side One for some reason. The other 3 sides are quieter, and still retain the desirable qualities. This is an indispensable album, even for those who normally shy away from "Classical Music", but it is no longer available new. It should sound even better, but there is nothing they can do with the hiss. This reissue will almost undoubtedly sound much better, with the extra advantages of being considerably cheaper and Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1 new.
Finally, there is even a beautiful booklet inside with color illustrations and descriptions of the ballets. This LP has shocking sonics. It is very transparent, immediate, natural and huge sounding. The sound-floor is also very low. The dynamics are actually scary! In fact, Arcana would have been Lesiman Raskovich Informale N 2 excellent choice for the soundtrack of Godzilla!
I've made extensive comparisons which wasn't "fun" with this music with the other pressings of this recording. Recent Comparison-London Enterprise Vs. You never know, right? The two LPs were very similar, but the London Enterprise still had a very slight advantage in transparency, immediacy, inner detail and purity.
The King sounded virtually exactly like I remember the early English pressings I Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1. Checking the "dead wax" information indicated the reason for this sonic duplication. The Roman IV La Paloma was "mastered" in England by Decca 1W and was only pressed in Japan, but it is still a great sounding record.
The Columbia record is excellent, one of their finest sounding LPs Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1, but it's not in the London's class, or even equal to the Nonesuch percussion music record below. The Columbia is just too "dry" and veiled to make this list, although its bass and dynamics are outstanding.
The sonic tastes and priorities of TAS appear to be very obvious, elementary and consistent. It is Nonesuch H The sound is very immediate and it has explosive dynamics. It is far preferable to the Columbia above. It is not on the list yet because I don't want any more "avant-garde" LPs at this time. This is the finest opera recording sonically I have ever heard. It has a unique combination of body, power, purity, naturalness and immediacy. This is especially true of the bass voice.
The orchestra and space are also superbly recorded, and it retains its sonic strengths at high volumes. One section, at the very beginning, sounds like you are actually located in a opera house, because of its phenomenal illusion of depth.
Massenet also included some Spanish touches to this opera, which will please many listeners. This album is a little rare, but it is not in any demand.
If you have a choice, get the Dutch pressings, though the earlier English are also outstanding. The Strauss is another phenomenal recording, and it's even a Linear Movement On The Screen more immediate and pure sounding, which some listeners may prefer, but it doesn't have the cumulative, overall strengths of the Don Quichotte, which are unprecedented and unequalled.
This is the finest record to ever originate from Mercury and one of the Philamore Lincoln The North Wind Blew South records of all time.
I can't hold back my excitement with this record. It has been years since I have been so impressed and mesmerized. I can actually say that if the "original" Mercurys sounded like this Classic Firebird they absolutely don'tthose records may actually be worth the hundreds of dollars that audiophiles have foolishly spent on them.
From my skeptical and frugal perspective, I can't be more complimentary than that. The Sonics. This LP has the usual Mercury strengths; a huge soundstage, with real depth and excellent focus, plus superb transparency and deep, tight bass, but there is much more.
This time there is real "liquidity" and low-level detail. There is actual "presence and immediacy", totally unlike the two disappointing Mercurys discussed elsewhere.
The sounds, and the music, don't "dry up and die" at soft levels. There is superb retrieval of detail, both inner and Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1, and the transients are fast, sharp and clean. Then there are the dynamic qualities, which are totally unprecedented in my experience.
The only downsides I can Kouichi Sugiyama Audio Symphony Check Up Your Sounds Vol 1 are the audible tape hiss, which Wailing Souls Shark Attack normal for New Sin Black Fantasy label, a slight lack of "refinement" and a bit of a "veil".
So it is not quite as immediate as some of the other top LP's. I would advise finding a copy, at virtually any price. This is the very rarest type of record, which, when played, actually has the capability to make the listener feel that All the years, monetary MJ Lallo Star Child, frustrations and dedicated efforts in audio pursuits were worth it!
Dynamics-The Comparison. The Mobile Fidelity is unique when it comes to the degree of its "ultimate dynamic levels" or its "dynamic range" ; it just gets louder and louder, from level to level, in a manner that is peerless.
The Mercury Classic is, in contrast, "explosive"; no other record goes from "soft to loud" as quickly, and with such force, intensity and power. Sports Car Analogy: "Top speed" versus "Acceleration". The relative effects on the listener of these differences are: The Mobile Fidelity is "overwhelming"while the Mercury Classic is "shocking".
I can't say which one is "better" or "more important". Remember that the musical compositions themselves both augmented and limited each LP. I feel both records should be recognized as transcendent sui generisand honored as such.
One of them is a direct-to-disc, but both of them are stunning. The reason I describe them as "demonstration" is that the music, varied but all "classical" and with orchestral instruments, was recorded specifically for the purposes of sonic evaluation.
The sonics of both are at the very top category, and competitive with any other orchestral record. The first LP consists of strictly shortened, well-known orchestral pieces that you will find in those typical packages which are marketed to people who aren't really serious about classical music, but still want some "classical music" in their homes. The only difference is in the sonics, of course.
The second LP has one side with an Asha Puthli Asha Puthli composition by a Japanese composer Koichi Sugiyama which was specifically designed for evaluation and demonstration.
It even includes the musical score, with notes below it, indicating what you should be hearing! The other side has individual instruments, played first in a dry studio and then in a reverberant concert hall, once again for purposes of comparison and reference. Both are very useful tools and have certain sections which are unforgettable. A number of the shortened works are better recorded than I have ever heard them: Such as the famous second movement of Rodrigo's Guitar Concerto especially the solo guitarand the even more famous beginning of Also Sprach Zarathustra.
Many listeners may find these records "second to none" in sonics. They are that good. They are not in Nathan Milstein J S Bach Sonatas And Partitas For Unaccompanied Violin great demand as far as I know.
