Re: Tascam DV-RA 1000 DSD recorder review

Thanks for the link, Jim. It would appear that the DSD info is only stored as data on a DVD, which is why this isn't called an SACD burner. That kind of limits options, doesn't it?

BTW - I did some contrast & colour adjustments to your avatar which I've attached here. The thought of you being washed out and faded seems incongruous.

Re: Tascam DV-RA 1000 DSD recorder review

Jeff,

Thanks. I think I even "feel" better. How can that be?

As far as the Tascam goes, there is no doubt it is a nice recorder. The DVD disc's cost may keep some from using it as a high end archiving tool. I think the Apogee Mini Me ADC USB might make a better choice for computer recording. The review link is below. I would suggest trying recording at the 88.2khz sampling rate and then truncate back to redbook for final storage. I though the NCH recording software sounded very good and allows higher bit rate recording. And Doc, thanks for the help. Looking and feeling good is important. LOL

Apogee Rosetta ADA 200 review

If you really want to take the high-end computer recording plunge, here you go.

What I find interesting about all these digital reviews is how different all these great digital devices sound and that some think that just because it is digital it is perfect. ADDAs can be as different as high end phono preamps and phono cartridges for that matter.

More Homework. You didn't think this was going to be easy, did

Make sure you read it all and especially the last paragraph by Mr. Palmer.

Over at Head-Fi, there was a poll that kind of addressed that last paragraph. You'll see where I stand on that on the 2nd page.

The Beatles would fit this description, would they not?

I think I'd agree with that. The later recordings were innovative, but, not really shining examples of stellar recording... but, I certainly wouldn't want to be without them. I just wish my LPs were truly pristine, or there were acceptable digital counterparts of the entire catalogue.
