New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: BIS SACD - Dynamics in general

I, too, am mystified about all of this. I've read reviews and comments that have said "It is recorded at a lower level" and "I had to crank up the volume" like it was an imposition or a recording defect. I'm sure that most have noticed that chamber music is recorded at a higher level than a Mahler symphony. You just have to get useded to setting the volume at an approximate level for the music you are about to listen to. I know that when I put on a BIS recording, the volume control has to start at a higher setting. I believe Telarc is this way, too.

I also try to keep my listening reasonable when family is in the room, so I usually wait until I'm alone to enjoy your new Rite of Spring in its fullest glory!

You must be doing something right in that you're still in business! Just don't expect to please everyone.
