Interesting. Perhaps yet another example of graphs and measurements falling short, but the heart and emotion leading the reasoning.
BTW, have you seen the custom version of the TU-05 amp?
Oh yes, another big difference recently were two albums I have owned on tape, vinyl and cd, Tea for the Tillerman and Rumours. The CD's never came close to the tape or vinyl in terms of engagement, they always felt lifeless and harsh in comparison. Well. I got them on 24/96 and what a difference it makes, all the life and texture is back. Some 24/96 stuff has not been as good but these two and all the albums I have downloaded from HDTT have been magnificent!
Have not checked out the Analog stuff recently. I will. When I do, I will make a purchase. I just know I can't look too hard right now. ; )
I'd love to check out that album. What an interesting name. I bet it sounds amazing on the PFIX.
