Why can't other recording engineers learn how to make a recording this good. I think many are just deaf.

Sad to hear of Chick's passing but his large volume music lives on. He played with many of the great musicians from Miles Davis to Bela Fleck and beyond.

A couple of my favorit albums:-
My Spanish Heart
Return to Forever - Romantic Warrior

A legend in his own time. Through his music, he will be remembered for 100's of years.

Kenny,

Tidal has a reissue of this album with a different album number on the cover.  Did you find this on Tidal?  Is there an original vs a reissue version?

Thanks,
Ramesh

Found on TIDAL
It's been remastered, Thankfully they didn't ruin it.

Maybe it's just me, but if my treble was a little hot I would search for the real problem rather than put a band aid on it by reconfiguring the Lush^3.
Maybe Damian can tell us more about his system. Maybe some members might have some other suggestions to try first.

Thanks for your kind offer of help. I have a great system using a Vitus  amplifier and magico  speakers. Iíve started working on acoustical treatments for the room.

To be honestI find many audio systems to be too harsh when it comes to treble production in digital audio. Iím Particularly sensitive to any sibilance or bleaching Of the sound.

The good news is that I have found  the lush3 usb cable , to be a perfect fit. I am three days in and I know I have some time yet to go, but it certainly seems to be heading all the right notes!

It certainly appears to produce a beautiful full bodied
Sound and yet provide detail without distortion. Iím very curious whether adding an XLR 2 Cable will build upon what I have or be too much?

Iíll update you in a day or so on  any further developments or observations  in the breaking in process.

Most importantly Iím enjoying the sound of the music immensely.
Damian

I'm glad Lush^3 is working for you. Huge changes in the first 50 hours. Continues to improve 200 hours and beyond.
Looking forward to your comments later on.

Hi there Damian,

Your Lush^3 will ship tomorrow, due Wednesday.
Let it break in for a day or 5 (you are allowed to listen sooner - haha). After that - and you still have the "hot treble" issues, we can try to work out some more "dull" configurations.
OK ?

Kind regards,
Peter

Just a little audiophile sick humor.
You can have my Wife for the night.
You can keep my dog.
But don't touch my Lush^3.

Here's a review by Matt Collar
"With their 2017 self-titled debut, Endless Field introduced their ambient, windswept brand of instrumental jazz, avant-garde soundscapes, and folky Americana. It was a sound that felt connected to and inspired by nature, and one which they take to yet more transcendent heights on 2020's Alive in the Wilderness. Recorded "field music"-style on solar-powered audio equipment, the album finds guitarist Jesse Lewis and bassist Ike Sturm performing live at various remote outdoor locations in Southern Utah. The result is a deeply emotive and poetic aural experience that incorporates the duo's music with the natural landscapes they encountered. Eschewing any studio overdubs, the duo used nature as their stage, performing against Utah's rushing waterfalls, windswept cliffs, gnarled forests, and arid, shrubby chaparral. Musically, the duo's playing contains its own topographical harmonic vistas, bringing to mind the work of contemporary jazz and new age pioneers like Paul Winter and Michael Hedges, as well as advanced post-bop improvisers like Pat Metheny, Ralph Towner, and Dave Holland. And while there are certainly outrť aspects to Endless Field's sound, lyrical melodies abound. Tracks like "Life on Earth," "The Well," and "Old Man" have an evocative quality, as Lewis' shimmering arpeggios and Sturm's woody percussive tones conjure images of the richly textured world surrounding them. Elsewhere, as on "Wind" and "Spirit," they take a more impressionistic approach, improvising against the murmur of a waterfall with skittering chimes, hand percussion, and harmonic lines that seem to flow from the water itself. The album has an ASMR quality, with every plucked string, flutter of wind, or (as on "Creature") bird chittering against metallic percussion and a booming bass, working to envelop your senses as if you were sitting next to Sturm and Lewis. And sometimes it's not just the captured nature sounds that grab you, but the way the duo's instruments react to a given space, as on "Wolfhead," where Sturm's brooding solo basslines traverse the shadowy, curvilinear yawn of a slot canyon. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that Lewis and Sturm are passionate advocates for protecting the environment, and all proceeds from the album will be donated to the Natural Resource Defense Council. With Alive in the Wilderness, Endless Field have crafted an album that honors that passion, and continually reinforces the connection between our human artistic impulse and the natural world around us."

Great recording with interesting fun music and sounds.
ENJOY!
