RE: If you say so....(nt)

Yes MOFI eq'd the bass up, and the top, on a lot of recordings. This was one. It has spectacular bass and I don't care if they boosted the bass. This particular master tape needed it. The DCC reissue is terrible but Steve Hoffman claims it sounds like the master tape. Well clearly the master tape needed some bass boost because it is lifeless and anemic sounding without it if the DCC is any indication.

The DCC reissue of the greatest hits album was just as bad but again Steven claimed this is what the master sounded like.

I am no purist. If the master tape sounds fantastic then yes transfer it with minimal EQ, compression, etc. But when the master is a lifeless dud then yes make it sound better at the mastering stage. That is their job and the point of it all.
