New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: LOL! - The SQ was great! I loved it! [nt] ;-)

Down below I brought up the comparison of multi mike recordings vs the old 3 mike recordings. Also the old recordings were done analog with tube mikes and tube recorders. Remember my listening is 2 channel. I sampled a bunch of Ivan Fischer Channel recordings on Tidal. Mahler, Wagner, Bruckner, and Stravinsky. There definitely is a house sound. I then listened to a Mercury Anatal Dorati recording mainly of Stravinsky. I much prefered the Mercury. More presence,greater dynamics and much better hall ambience. The channel sounds laid back with much less dynamics. Remember I spent my recording career using all analog tube equipment and when I did record classical orchestras I used the 3 mike Decca tree arrangement. Just my opinions. Also I don't necessarily believe it is a digital thing. More of an engineering thing. I have heard some great digital. Professor Johnsons Reference recordings for instance. Also Brothers in arms.
