The original Sony CDP 101 and the first CDs Melbourne Audio Club

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.
