    Now Playing : 1978 - Van Halen - Van Halen (DCC GZS-1129) 44.1KHz / 16 Bit ALAC - The Van Halen Remasters were improved, but this "takes the cake" - Finally VH1 with BASS! - IMHO, All their first few albums were weak on BASS Mr. Hoffman Fixed this! It's not booming or anything like that, but a bit more "THERE" - The smoothness and clarity, 1st rate!

    http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/view/83274 ; Steve Hoffman pulls off another "Hat Trick". He is not too far from me, at times, I need to try and arrange to meet with him. One other avenue I'm thinking about of for my career change would be Mastering Engineer....To further clarify, I do have experience with this which led a band I was producing back in 2007 to get signed with CBS - using my "Blitz" remastered DEMO CD. The studio which was around $500/hr rate that provided the original CD to the band, sucked! It's worth a shot!, LOL :) Yes, but you never know...Additionally, I've lost all of them in the big "D" I had remastered many of the CD's I own. i put them in one of those slip-sleeve "leather" zipper "thing'em'ma'jigs" - never to be found again. That was a lot of work - all gone. :(

    Now almost done Playing : Yes - The Yes Album [Remixed by Steven Wilson] (2014) Panegyric GYRBD40106 FLAC 44.1KHz / 15 Bit I think this might sound even better than my MFSL version, the Dynamic Range on the DR site is definitely better!

    This is my very first time ever hearing this YES album - I can now say, I waited FAR to long! It is excellent! This Steven Wilson remix is excellent and I now also the MFSL Gold FLAC of the same album to do a compassion :) - Nice to have options!

    http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/view/42090 ; borderline. But no Brick-walling! Sounds Great! Oddly enough, the Redbook Audio layer has better Dynamic Range then the SACD Layer.

    Now Playing : 1976 - George Benson - Breezin' [Audio Fidelity SACD stereo CD layer AFZ5 185] ALAC 44.1KHz / 16 Bit - Sweetening this one @8KHz+ 3db & @16KHz +4db - This is a "Perfect Example" of when my DBX 14/10 comes in "Handy" took an already good recording and makes it sound 2x better - it's now making this remaster sound like another even better remaster...! I find that I use the DBX "in the signal path" just every so often, 1 out every 100 albums. But, when it is times like right now, this makes me really happy that I not only have (1), but (2) :) My "Hero" Steven Hoffman must have had his ears right next to the tweeters on this one, because the above mentioned frequencies, as now adjusted make it sound as it should. I'm going to call him and scold him, LOL :biggrin:
