Excellent. I've never had a cd player because I thought digital audio was not up to par with analog audio; however in the last few years I have some audio files on pc that I convert via a dac (good but not expensive - 1/10 of my turntable value -). Togheter with them I have a dozen DSD128 files; well, Midnight Blue (Pure DSD) has quality above all others and this is the first time that I don't regret my turntable; I'm not going to tell you why, everyone has their own musical tastes, but this is the first time that musicians play in my room , with digital files. Have a good music, Paolo
I'm a first time user of HDTT and a big compliment to your organization - very easy to access and efficient and simple store - TOP - the record, beeing used to HD, is excellent in quality, dinamics and colouration of the instruments - top notch. A recomandation!
When looking for excellence Midnight Blue ranks up there. Kenny Burrell is a fantastic guitarist who has been on a number of terrific albums. If I had to pick 100 Jazz albums to be isolated with on an island this would be in that list.
While the music was not unfamiliar the ability to hear it in pure DSD was a gift. Only vinyl exceeds and that is "perfect" vinyl which is hard to find if and keep perfect. This is a must have for jazz & audiophile ....don't miss.
Compared the HDTT-Issue to the available Online-Streams, it even beats the very good 2012 Hi-Res Remaster... authentic bass, not too much, just right. The percussion transients are fun to listen to, for me this is the magical part of this recording, for i am not too interested in blues, normally... I just wish the sax would have been recorded 'bout 3 dBs lower, sometimes, but it is like that... I would recommend this version without hestitation
