Brutal Hi-End HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Telarc) Bizet/Grieg – Carmen & Peer Gynt Suites (Slatkin)

Revisited after exactly 5 years, now with the benefits of the Black Bird Gang and the Audio Research SP15… and in 192 kHz

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!
