I do not own a turntable and have never heard the "great vinyl sound" coming from a good turntable handled correctly. I am however sligltly interested in purchasing one, as there are some interesting albums out there unavailable on CD.

Recently I found a small clip on the net: A lossless needledrop of Santana's debut album on the MFSL label. Since I own the CD on same label I had something to compare with: I was very disappointed with the needle drop. There were no pops or clicks, but the sound was dead.

Can anyone provide some sample clips of very good needle drops?

I can understand the 8 extra bits headroom and processing though I'm sure it could be done well @16 under fairly controlled conditions (it is only vinyl, afterall), but why @192? Does your hardware not do justice to the capabilities of 44.1 (or 48 depending on the format)? EDIT: If so, is it problem with aliasing and/or something else? I'm not familiar with the current gamut of A/D converters. Are there corroborative studies demonstrating audible problems when sampling at 44.1kHz? 48kHz?

Would anyone care to down-sample using at least two of the commonly recommended/highly-respected programs to 44.1/16 so that they can be used for a public listening test?

foobar2000 dither, SoX, 90% passband, minimum phase, advanced limiter to catch any potential clipping. http://baryon.ca/temp/kindofblue.flac

Someone else can do the other one. wink.gif
