This transfer is superb. The presence realised in my room is captivating. HDTT, you let the side down with your insulting liner notes. These seem to be culled from the web by some teenager for a book report, who doesn’t even understand the formatting of what he is reading. Show your own work--which I suspect is not ‘set and forget’ in nature, though it depends on special machines-- some respect. But especially this ‘packaging’ insults the extraordinary and truly original work of the artists you serve, many now dead, and their original recordists and publishers. Up your game, or *you lose*.
This was my first DSD purchase, and I'm quite impressed. This has been one of my favorite albums for the last few years, and I've never heard it like this before - very smooth and detailed. I'm listening to the DSD128 version.
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.
