    Sony MDR-V6 (and family) Impressions Thread

    By the way, Admins: I checked 'Keep me logged in' when logging in after site upgrades this weekend, but am still getting logged out after periods of inactivity. Has been happening only since the upgrade period, not before.

    For that combination of price & authenticity, I would look nowhere else.

    Sony MDR-V6 (and family) Impressions Thread

    BSW - Broadcast Supply Worldwide. Caution though: they are extreeeeemely tight, and can be torn if not carefully stretched around the edges and into the grooves that hold the pads in place on these two models. The pair are authentic, and the plastic envelope is marked 'MDRV6' plus a string of...

    Sample Rate, Bit Depth and High Resolution Audio

    I would expect such a statement from you.

    Sample Rate, Bit Depth and High Resolution Audio

    I for one am not that extreme: I see reasonable amounts of DRC as the glue, along with good EQ carving technique, that pulls a (good)mix together. However, as you stated, apples-to-apples, and oranges-to-oranges, it should be obvious, just by listening, that music from the same genre, IE: pop...

    Or, to do less dynamic range reduction and makeup gain in mastering.

    24bit vs 16bit, the myth exploded!

    Back sixty-ought years ago, when the primary reason for music in stores was mask such retail unpleasantries as the rattling of shopping carts, mechanisms of cash registers, deli equipment, the prattle of fellow shoppers, etc., Muzak was a cheap, royalty-free(to the retailer that is) alternative...

    "Flint stenography"? Your sense of humor is not appreciated. They knew what they were doing back then. And all that "24/96" & "mediocre CD" sounds like audiophile talk to me. Beneficial only on the production side. 16/44.1 is good enough as a consumer deliverable.

    What can I say? I both appreciate listening to, and playing music for, the m'asses! :D

    I resemble that comment, lol! What would you have done differently on, say, 'BORN IN THE USA' or 'ELECTRIC LADYLAND'? There's no such thing as a perfect music mix, or master - from before or since 1990!

    24bit vs 16bit, the myth exploded!

    When's the last time you found an original CD release of 'TNT' by AC/DC in a Goodwill? Or 'DARK SIDE OF THE MOON' by Pink Floyd or any of the original Van Halen CD catalog at a library benefit sale? Nowadays, finding 'RELISH' by Joan Osborne or 'CRACKED REAR VIEW' by Hootie & The Blowfish is...

    I hope you are not including me in that assessment. There is a lot of post-2000, 2010s stuff I enjoy. All I'm saying is, leave the stuff from before 1990 alone. No 're-envisioning', no 'remastering', etc.

    As I've said... There's hope out there ;)

    1) I do come across post-Millennials with actual musical taste, occasionally, in my place of work. They inherited their parents turntable or CD deck and want to know I have any Beatles or Allmans material in the back room. The only ones who pi$$ me off are the college-age buffoons who buy LPs...

    Yeah, sure, we know. You're one of those strange Yankees who likes every classic rock act except for the Beatles. I have personally met a few weirdos who like all classic rock except by Joel or Springsteen. What are the demographics behind that phenomenon? By the way, this thread was...
