Just one word - WOW!

5 Stars
Posted by Birdland

The mastering of this album by Analogue Productions is just amazing. I did not listen to the CD layer. The SACD layer is just so real. A lot of dynamics and smooth in a good way. This is best I've ever heard this album in a digital medium.

Exceedingly well-recorded, the latest release from Norah harkens back to her jazz/pop debut. The LPs sonics are warm, intimate, and engaging, and the copy I have was pressed on flat, quiet vinyl without any surface noise whatsoever. Highly recommended.

This is a MUST HAVE for any Eva fan. The fidelity of this pressing is outstanding and the quality is equally outstanding. If you have other Eva recordings or are new to Eva, this is one that you don't want to pass up. An acoustic delight!

Worth The Wait...

Posted by Craig Smith

This album was my intro to Diana Krall when it was released, and has been in my top ten albums since then. I'm very happy with this pressing. The music speaks for itself. Worth The Wait...YES!


Patricia Barber - Modern Cool Product No: APRM 90761
Available: InStock
Category: 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Label: Premonition

VERY hot recording -- EXCELLENT customer service

4 Stars
Posted by Cal Liedtke

This Quality Records Pressing of Patricia Barber's MODERN COOL suffers from much of the same problems that the previous Mobil Fidelity Sound Lab vinyl re-issue succumbed to -- it is recorded VERY HOT. Barber's voice is quite sibilant which in my case was so distracting that I could not listen to the LP -- in the same way I had to shelve my MFSL pressing.

However, CUSTOMER SERVICE at Acoustic Sounds was OUTSTANDING! When I called to voice my displeasure I was treated with respect, understanding, and politeness. My issue with this title was resolved to my satisfaction with absolutely no push back.

My CUSTOMER SERVICE experience with Acoustic Sounds is a significant reason why I have purchased records from them in the past and will continue to buy from Acoustic Sounds in the future.

While your QRP pressing of MODERN COOL may be different than mine (I hope) be assured that great customer service will be there to help you.

Last: the MFSL sacd has no vocal sibilants.


Holly Cole - Temptation Product No: XAPP048D64
Available: InStock
Category: DSD (Single Rate) 2.8MHz/64fs Download
Label: Analogue Productions

Stunning!

5 Stars
Posted by RCG

Of all the the DSD downloads I have this is by far the best. I have have never heard a noise floor that is so low from prevoius offerings. Low level details are now even more evident. Musically from top to bottom it's stunning. Smooth top end , transparent , and very well defined powerful bass notes. Doing a direct comparison with original 331/3 rpm 200 gram record( which is a flawless pressing) definitely rivals the record. There is more there in detail. Just as smooth. Plenty of warmth. If I had Micheal Fremer's phono rig I might feel differently about this DSD. :)


Linda Ronstadt - Greatest Hits Product No: ARHI 8894
Available: InStock
Category: Vinyl Record
Label: Rhino

Not The One

3 Stars
Posted by audiofan

I did a direct comparison between "You're No Good" (the lead-off track here) and my 1st generation Capitol pressing of "Heart Like A Wheel", which, of course, this track is from. This Rhino re-issue lacks the overall clarity and detail of the original, especially in the treble and upper-midrange. It sounds veiled and compressed by comparison. Cymbals and background vocals seem just a bit muted, and the seperation of the instruments in the soundfield seems compressed - it's just not as deep & wide. To compound matters, there is a bit of groove noise or "rumble" present - although you may not notice this unless you turn up the gain a bit.This version should be considered only if you are unable to locate a near-mint copy of the original. Maybe 3.5 stars?


Lucinda Williams - Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone Product No: AHW20 011
Available: InStock
Category: Vinyl Record
Label: Highway 20 Records

Highly Recommended!

5 Stars
Posted by Drunken Angel

All 3 vinyl pressings were flat & quiet. Not sure if this was a analog or digital master but whoever did the mastering/mix did an excellent job. Tight powerful bass with a little warmth, clean extended highs without being too hot & the vocal/guitar placement was perfect. So the sonics are 5 Stars and the music is also 5 stars. This is "Car Wheels" good. There are 6-7 gems/songs that are 10X more powerful on vinyl than mp3/CD. For a good time - drop the needle on "Walk On" and turn the volume knob to 1 O'clock. Highly Recommended.

Great album in DSD!

5 Stars
Posted by RockStar2005

The album sounds fantastic! Norah's vocals are as crisp and clear as you could ever hope for. All the instruments are isolated and easy to hear, with plenty of punch! The songs are really nice too, esp my favorite one, Sunrise.

I am pretty sure this is the correct DRD page for this album:

http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/view/52128

As you can see, PLENTY of dynamic range, even when compared to the HDTracks (also Hi-Res) version (http://dr.loudness- war.info/album/list?artist=norah+jones&album=Feels+Like+Home). (The DSD version is labeled SACD)

HIGHLY recommended!

Great Music & Poor Vinyl Quality

3 Stars

I've purchased this record twice. Both times the record was warped. Can't trust this label for a third try. Music is a 5 but the pressing is a 2.

Definitive!

5 Stars
Posted by ATLTRAV

I have not heard the AP 33 or original pressing but I can't imagine either sound this good! Very dynamic with silky smooth vocals. Definitely in my top 5! Hard pressed "no pun intended" to find smoother or more elegant recording. Don't hesitate on this one!

Remastering very good but pressing has issues

3 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

I love Eva's music. Songbird is one of my all-time favourite records. When the release of this Box-set came, I immediately placed an order and was very excited when I received my set. Inner sleeves are printed thick paper w/o anti-static plastic. Excitement quickly turned into frustration when I tried to place Songbird into the spindle and it didn't fit even with a forceful push. This is unusual even for a new record and I have purchased a lot of new LPs here. Needed to "file" the hole quite a bit before it fit in, and this had to be done for all 5 records! Considering my set is already #2100+ there is a good chance a lot of sets out there suffer from this. Next issue is with the high degree of pops/ticks that is NOT due to dust. I have an audio quest anti-static brush and hand-pump air- blower and always clean before I play, played both sides ofSongbird 3 times and pops always came at the same spot. For a new LP this is too much. Remastering very good but pressing has issues

Cecile McLorin Salvant - WomanChild Product No: AMAC 1072

Category: 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Label: Mack Avenue

A Singer Who Can Actually Sing

5 Stars
Posted by Anthony

I had been waiting quite a while for this release on vinyl and it did not disappoint. The pressing is very quiet with no distractions. Cecile's crystal-clear (reminiscent of Ella) vocals are up front and given prominence with the musicians in the background as it should be. She has seemingly unlimited vocal range. If you ever wondered what Bessie Smith would sound like with today's recording technology, this could be as close as you can get.

Wow! Smokes the original

5 Stars
Posted by Vince

MFSL has done a very nice job on this Rickie Lee Jones classic. Presentation is first rate with a padded box instead of an ordinary gatefold. A 12" square booklet is included with lyrics and other notes.

The sound is extraordinary! I have the original and I played it just to be sure. This one smokes it. The presentation is lighter and airier. The sound stage more full and sure. Bells just hang in space, cymbals are brassier than the original. At first I thought the new one may be brighter, given the added clarity of the bells and cymbals but her voice is less sibilant on the MFSL version, so I don't think it is brighter. The bass is improved too. It is more solid and woody. I can hear fingering better. Her voice has more body and clarity.

The thing is a joy to listen to!
