I've decided to do my own referencing tests on a recording. I might change the CD, but I started doing my tests on Tom Petty's Greatest Hits already. Reason I choose this recording, it's a mix from different sessions so this allows me to listen to different studio engineering as well.
I'm going to use a poorly rated copy as well as a favored one.
I'm going to freeze a copy as well as send one off to a cryo company.
I'm going to compare the CD at one pass through vs 3 days of settling.
If any of you want to send me a version to listen to that's fine I'll put it in the test. You might want to send me a ripped version from your computer and I'll test against the original.
I've done these tests before so I'm pretty up on being fair making sure that the conditions are as close to the same as possible.
Let me know if you want to be a part of.
