Wednesday 17 in the Willis Room
Listening to the first pressed CDs and an original Sony CD player (1983) and comparing the sound with an Oppo. As expected the modern player and DAC were MUCH better, equipment used was a Mark Levinson 331 amplifier driving a big pair of Duntech Black Knights. The preamp was an excellent modern (valve) McIntosh. All present agreed that good recordings and the equipment used today are far superior. Nick also played a modern recording that was horribly compressed! So not all new recordings are better.
Starts at 8 pm.
