and here i thought it had to do with looking for a comfy spot for the MOTHs
I spent some time up in the sanctuary listening to these. The first time was with a track i have heard so much recently that I know it by heart - the eagles Hotel California ( Hell freezes Over ) , that kick bass comes in and ..... well balanced bass. This is just wrong , that track is meant to have an overblown bass intro. I keep listening and things are more familiar with a few other tracks and finally my mind is split apart by the absolutely fantastic remaster of Living Stereo's Witches Brew
it was only later when I was chatting to annax and lff that I learned that the Eagles recording had been remastered and the bass had been smoothed out to be more accurate and it thus sounded true to the recording. The Enigma's have that sense of delicacy where small details are noted and they don't collapse with complex music. Really exceptional sounding closed headphones. I resisted the urge to pry too deeply into their makings other than discussing the labour of love that is Suji.
