Lovely Japanese remaster of Ozawa doing the full Swan Lake ballet, in 24/96 resolution:



Ozawa is another one of those conductors that I'm having to re-evaluate after hearing some of these remasters.  The old (original) releases all sounded fairly polite leaving the impression that Ozawa is "overly-refined" in his interpretations.  But these remasters really restore the color and punch to the recording, making him a much more interesting conductor.  Nice.

Bach on Sundays for me.  Great recording, especially in 24/96:

After a thorough 2nd listening I’ve concluded that certain recordings should come with a listener advisory label: “Warning: Music Sounds Like a Conference of Angry Buzzing Bees”.

(... not so veiled sarcasm)

Schnittke’s 2nd string quartet has an angry bees movement, I rather like it.  Helps that it’s relatively brief.

Got my new (to me) Almarro a318b SET amp up and running:


And now I'm listening to his amazing remaster of Szell and Cleveland doing the Mahler 4th in 24/192.  Damn, life is good :thumb:

Ah!  The extreme excitement of a listening session with new gear.  I know the feeling well.

Yes!  And the fact that is uses 1 6SN7 and 1 6SL7 means I can roll tubes to really fine tune it.  I have a ton of each tube from different manufacturers and different decades.  Can't wait to try them all. 

I'll say this right off - the new amp is more dynamic and impactful than my other main amp, a Tube Audio Lab Korneff 45 SET.  But the Korneff 45 has a more beautiful tone.  So, I might just have to switch back and forth between amps for a while :thumb:
