  1. Thank you for this. The sound is very clean and has a lot of presence and depth. I suspect it is a significant compliment to say that what I can hear in your files is what I would expect to hear from high-end vinyl reproduction, without any feeling that you have over-processed or otherwise messed around with it.

  2. Thanks for that.
    Whilst I've quite a few CD machines in 3 systems (& having only ever bought 2 CD box-sets!!).. a) I cannot play any CD-RW's via two JVC's (one a very 'analog-sounding' 1987 deck: XL-V1100).. b) discovered the 24-bit machine's CD-RW file won't play-back on the Pioneer CD-Recorder/s (whose output goes, CoAx + Optical, to 2 (or 3) MD-Recorders (Pioneer MD-J508/Denon DMD-1000 + a Sony JA-20ES - if it happens to be connected).
    All I've been able to ascertain is that a 'test' Dagmar Krause 'Eisler' album (whose CD-RW from the Pioneer *will* play-back on the 'new' machine) did gain some additional 'articulation'/'dynamic slam', but couldn't be certain that was a 'characteristic' of the 24-bit circuitry - or was actually 'in' the Pioneer CD-RW - and thus, possibly, already audible to others.
    On a few occasions I've mentioned some dissatisfaction with the CD-RW sonics (at least played in my systems) - apparently losing 'livelieness' compared to the LP (& even an MD-dub..): yet, though I've only made a few transfers so far, the 24-bit machine playing-back a dub seems to retain the LP's 'feel' (possibly some extra 'sharpness' ??) to a greater degree.
