Brutal Hi-End HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Telarc) Stravinsky/Borodin – The Firebird – Ouverture and Polovetsian Dances from “Prince Igor” (Shaw)

The eternal question: Why does a digital recording sound much better, when played from vinyl, compared to the CD? Indeed, this is fact on almost all recordings. But in this case, Telarc used the full benefits of the master tapes (“only” 16 bit & 50 kHz its time), that were played in the full range, not beeing reduced to 44.1 kHz for the CD-norm. The HiFi-sound becomes a Hi-End-sound and you remain speechless and want to hear it again and again. Enjoy!

You are warned: take care of your amp and (more) of your speakers. Don’t play it too loud, until you know, how loud you can get it. Telarc’s timpani and bass drum are terrific!

Super HD-Vinyl 192/24 (Telarc) Carl Orff – Carmina Burana

Revisited with the Black Bird Gang – rip from Apr. 2016
In my opinion, the best sounding “Carmina” and one of the best interpretations. A great feast for your ears and your equipement.
Although this is (probably) a 16bit/44.1kHz digital production, the vinyl sounds worlds better that the CD…trust in me (cit.)
