Only got back to this tonight. I did go back and add in the FT3 as bypasses for the 2.2uF film outputs, but couldn't really detect much of a difference. They can stay though....

Anyway, I went searching for something with a good drum sound, went for my copy of time out.... and there it was - gone! couldn't find it for the life of me!

Anyway, I recorded this snippet. Its Van Morrison at the Grand Opera House, second track side 1, Dweller on the Threshold. This whole album is a bit "brighter" than the one put up earlier, so might give another look at the highs. The track is fairly dynamic, with a fair bit of snap going on.

sample track

Yep!

Bear in mind the lp is an old one, not a fancy reissue.

The older ones are better IMO.

Normally, new ones have lower surface noise but some are reworked reissues based on dat files or other digital medium.

What cap value / type are you using for the 15n in the riaa ?

With this record I have no quibbles regarding the tonality, this Itch seems well scratched.

*I checked again my listening position RTA for my PC desktop spkrs the other day. Beyond a room mode from the sub, its balanced enough. Can't hear the 100Hz nowhere as heavy as it looks, you know with subs it takes a room average to see better.

Yes - very clean tone I think. And purely subjectively, its dynamic as hell....

RCruz: K40Y-9 measuring at 15.3nF.

This is what I think:

Very cool!

I'll be spinning my (black) copy later I think. Love the meaty bass on Lithium.

Your latest clip is very good BTW.

Indeed, now I miss no ''sparkle''. Maybe its the Zoom H2 he got now also more accurate over the H1 he had for the other tracks.
