Vinyl Done Properly
on 23 October 2016
I have a number of versions of "Sketches", all of them superb and well-preserved (Moth RCM + Last products for the stylus) but this new release by Jazz Images surpasses them all in instrument separation, ambience, dynamic range, "just enough" reverb. A huge pleasure to listen to. All I have said relates to very careful production with ultra-low noise-floor which will always enhance the qualities I have listed, and the manufacture is faultless too with an absolute silence in the lead-in and between tracks and no clicks from the grooves (I do clean all new purchases on my RCM, not just the dirty bargains). The disc lies absolutely flat and the hole is dead centre. In summary, wonderful and excellent value.
One caveat is that I am very fussy about what I play my music on and how I handle it. Please do NOT play your vinyl on the groove-manglers you see advertised in many non-audio magazines, but this LP will sound good on a decent and properly set up PROPER record deck.
