Ordered my box set first thing this morning!

Thanks guys! You’ll love it.


#4

How could it be any good? It’s not Master Quality Audio?

Sorry I couldn’t resist… I’ll buy the download tonight or tomorrow and have a listen.

One of the posters on Paul’s post send me this and I thought I’d share.

"Bought and listened to the album "One". Have about 40 albums with hi-res stores (from 96 kHz to DSD128), but this sound never met. It's incredibly clean, the background is blacker than black. Musical instruments are precise, clear, but not sharp, no porridge, no noise, no haste, no bloated confusing scenes and confusion. This album has a special, unique atmosphere. This amazing adventure. Bravo!

P. S. For "Lara Ruggles - snowflake" - a special thank you! Wow!"

Hey YAMAD, what does “no porridge” mean? Being an American, I have no knowledge of porridge. We eat mounds of bacon for breakfast and use the leftover grease to lubricate our assault weapons.4_gif

I downloaded the DSD and 24-176 today and am listening to the DSD version right now! phenomenal sonics and just great music to lay back your head and just listen!

As good probably better than all the demo albums I have - once again PS Audio scores big time!

In Russian language the word "porridge" is called not only oatmeal or rice cereal. When something stirred to a homogeneous condition, we call it "porridge". And when the sound of musical instruments poorly separated, we call it porridge.

Wonderfully explained!

Paul, what can we expect in the future on the PS Audiophiles site? Are there full albums planned by the same musicians and mastered by Gus, because I am interested?
It would also be great to know more about the studios that produced them and the recording chains and techniques used. There are links to several of the studios but it would be great to feature articles on recording by these folks and from Gus, in particular. I have spent a good deal of time learning more about the recording process in the last year and have gained an appreciation for the artistry behind it. It appears that gear fever is rampant in this field as well but, in my short experience, it has so much to do with the artist, the room and where you put the mic that really makes the magic happen. There are plenty of “how to” information sources out there but real discussion of the craft of excellent recording is just not easy to find. Just a thought.

It really depends on how well we do with the first one. It sold initially very well, but has now slowed. We invested a good deal of money into this and while we never hoped to make money (it’s not a money making venture), we did hope to at least not lose a bunch. If we manage to lose only a little, we’ll likely do another or, figure out a way to post more that has already been done. A work in progress.

Sadly, Immersive, the studio that recorded all but the Fiona piece has shuttered its doors, the equipment sitting in a garage somewhere.

Real sad.

Sounds like a good topic for Copper magazine.

Ouch, that is disappointing. Actually, that deserves a, “That really sucks”. The collection sounds so good that it makes listening to the run-of-the-mill stuff even more grating. For now I guess that I’ll look for more of Gus’ work on the Sonoma.
