Has anyone else tried any of the offerings from Mapleshade Records? I have five of their CD’s and they all sound great. They record with minimal microphones on 15ips reel to reel analog recorders and when I read the sampling rate they use for conversion to digital it sure looks like some are single rate 2823 thousand samples per second and double rate 5645 thousand sample per second. They never call it DSD they do not offer SACDs. They all have great depth wide open soundstage excellent dynamics free of compression. If you have not tried any of them I would recommend doing so. The Albums I have are ‘Bringing the Flame Home from Havana to Africa’, ‘Bad Influence Live at Bad Habits’, ‘Austin Back Alley Blue’, ‘Boogeying Swamprock Salsa & Trane’, ‘Mapleshades Music Festival’
I have several of their CDs, covering several musical genres and I am very impressed by all of them.
