No stereo (see ?); = On the LP is Stereo(listening off axis)
Remember that all is relative and how I described this "phenomenon" earlier in this topic (IIRC);
Of course it is stereo, but it is hard to detect while the CD is as wide as can be with countless variation between left and right. This springs from one thing only : accuracy. But also see below.
- Strange highs (see ?)= Nothing strange here.
If I may refer to the dubbed voice not heard, now imagine what all more is not heard. I think I am able to explain : way waaay more than a double voice. I know, this is fragile too, but again it is the detail which just lacks on the LP.
Not difficult to imagine how highs sound strange (read : completely different from what I used to plus without the variation I am used to (this latter is noyt subjective of course).
- No bass AT ALL (see ?)= There is bass on the LP
Here we have a little bit more difficult problem to explain in writing (listening is super easy);
If you, Joachim, already perceive a room-filling bass sound, then try to imagine what happens with a flat to 19Hz going speaker like mine. And Mani's of course. So once and again for Mani : feel your woofers (from both verions).
Anyway, this kind of bass - which is, mind you, just from a Spanish Guitar, is processed in some way which lowers it an octave or whatever. This production company does this with all the "Spanish Guitars" and the sound from them is always similar. One of the properties is that the lower frequencies themselves (from such a guitar) have a delay or hall between left and right, and *this* is how the room filling emerges. Happens to you (Joachim) but happens to me a 10 times better because of the low frequency separation and directivity (say well executed horns for the LF).
But totally nothing of that on the LP ...
- No filling of the room anywhere while this track is famous for it. = Here I canít compete with Peters amazing sounding room
Thank you Joachim. But the room is hardly doing this. It is the speaker. I know, because I know how this all improved with the new speaker.
The CD produces more details, and the SPL of the LP is 6dB lower,
This does not tell much because the LP version completely depends on the recording level Mani applied.
