    Both of the towers are assembled and working fine... early impression is that they sound pretty decent. Will need to do some more listening to know for sure.
    I still have to replace the grill cover fabric with new black speaker cloth, and re-attach the walnut veneer trim panels to the lower front part of the cabinets...

    No doubt that remaster must sound much louder - it's average dynamic range is only about 8dB and the peak levels are all at the max allowable 0.0dB for digital audio files

    The original CD has at least 4dB more average dynamic range, plus the track peak levels max out at -1.2dB... that would account for the remaster being +6dB louder

    As you mentioned, the remaster is also EQ'd differently than the original CD and may indeed be hotter in the upper mid range frequencies.

    That combined with the relatively high compression (and probably brick wall limiting) make for a remaster that is hard to listen to for very long

    Anyway, I think Hunter's nose is the best thing about this Thread .. P.S In Italy we call the dog's nose : "Tartufo"..The tartufo (truffle )is perhaps the most precious mushroom on the planet :)

    I played Hells Bells back to back on both copies. The remaster was definitely louder, but tbh, I could listen to either of them. I couldn't say for sure that I preferred one over the other. Perhaps a longer session rather than one track would have yielded more info.

    I think to some extent, Blitz, you are listening to your equipment rather than the music. Your system is capable of definition that the rest of us have never heard, and you can pick out subtleties that we cannot. You also know what to listen for. Your experience with comparing the MSFL CDs with standard versions has given you a database from which to draw.

    By the way, good morning.

    Now playing:

    Deutsche Grammophon CD 413 932-2 (1982)

    Beethoven Symphonien 5 & 6 (Pastorale)

    Karajan/Berlin Philharmoniker

    Please let it not be Sunday. Saturday is my only day off work. I had to go in yesterday to chair a safety meeting, and I'm heading back to the wilderness prison on Sunday.
