:thumb: Very excited this evening!

 

Earlier this afternoon, I ordered the newly remastered 24-bit/192kHz version of "Kind Of Blue" from HDTracks. Previously held this work of art on CD but held off on any hi-rez version for the longest - glad I did!!!

 

Can't wait! But :blink: I'll have to... no choice. I bought three other digital albums and between the four downloading, this could take awhile. I started downloading at 1400 hrs - it's now 19:40 and the first of four is only 90 something percent complete. :rolleyes: Gonna be a long night.

 

I ordered:

AIFF 24/192

 

 

HX00028943201025_185.jpg

AIFF 24/176

 

 

HX05099995837659_185.jpg

AIFF 24/192

 

 

HX603497930210_185.jpg

AIFF 24/192

 

 

Looks like I'll start a short session @ 0200 hrs but formally listen to all four albums Sunday night.

Do you have a favorite Glenn amp for Grados? 

Thanks!

 

Hi, I haven't tried my RS1 or GS1000 yet.

Both OTL's drive the SR325is very well, nice bass, you wouldn't go wrong with either.

I feel the 6336A's will be even better, we tried them last summer with Glenn briefly, and the Grados sounded very good.

'Miles'... "Kind Of Blue" @ 24/192...... HUGE sound! I had a seat this morning at CBS 30th Street Studio, sipping on an elegant Lung Ching Dragonwell.

Hmmm, let's see (SO turns on some lighting...):

 

Sup'd up Mac mini music sever; Audirvana Plus > Mhdt USBridge - Coax Out > W4S DAC-1 (Upgraded Digital Board; Low ESR "Super Caps") > Shindo Lab Aurieges MM Pre-amp > Shindo Lab Sinhonia monaural amps > HE-Adapter > re-cabled HE-6. :normal_smile : 

 

 

 

Add.:  I need to consult with our resident designer early January and bad! I suspect the HE-Adapter may be interfering with my pursuit.

Is there an alternative to the HE Adapter?

Chic! A great disco LP from the past. Love the cover.

 

I've never been able to find a great recording of Miles Davis - Kind of Blue. The opening notes sound so distorted and overly saturated. SO, do you think it was originally recorded this way? It sounds like his trumpet is too close to the mike. I have 3 versions and they all sound like that. It is, however, one of my favorite LPs.

 

Happy downloading and listening. I just downloaded this CD: http://www.classicsonline.com/catalogue/product.aspx?pid=1960980

 

It is incredible on my WA22 with RCA 6AS7, CBS 6SN7, and Amperex 5AR4

Glenn. In anticipation of your arrival back to NC, I decided to buy a caramel maple spice cake topped with candied pumpkin seeds to celebrate your return. It is from Flour & Co.

 

Here it is in the refrigerator ready for me to dive into it at around 5PM. The frosting got a little banged up so I had to patch it up with a bent icing knife. Some got on my fingers so I had to lick that up too.

 

Welcome back, Glenn!

Ooh, new music! :normal_smile : Will check out Miss Tasmin later this evening (post football :rolleyes:). I'm trying to cut snack purchases next week to afford a new CD: Camille Thomas et Béatrice Berrut

"Kind Of Blue" - Unfortunately, the distortion appears to be original, whatever happened during that session. As I understand from reading the liner notes of Bill Evans (an excerpt below), there were no practices. While I find that aforementioned passage troubling with each listen, that the group bravely lived in the moment and went for it, leaves me with strong admiration.

 

"Miles conceived these settings only hours before the recording dates and arrived with sketches which indicated to the group what was to be played. Therefore, you will hear something close to pure spontaneity in these performances. The group had never played these pieces prior to the recordings and I think without exception the first complete performance of each was a "take."

                                                               - Bill Evans

I don't think that is distortion. I think Miles just missed the note.
