It's weighted towards the high end, and the bass is in the background -- but that's how I remember JGB sounding anyway. Recommended.|
Pcm recordings such as this one generally have pre-emphasis applied, which artificially boosts the high end on the recording prior to digitization. Normally, a pre-emphasis ?flag? is inserted into the digital stream that instructs the d>a converter to apply a de-emphasis curve upon playback to bring the high end back down to a more natural level. Unfortunately, when a pcm is converted to a wav file, this flag is lost.
It could well be that the ?weighted toward the high end? sound you hear on this (and other) pcm ?based recording is due to the lack of a de-emphasis flag. But, all is not lost, if you burn this show to audio cd using feurio!, you can manually set the de-emphasis flag and instruct your cd player to apply the de-emphasis processing on playback. I?ve found that by doing this on other pcm-based recordings, I end up with a noticeably more balanced and natural sounding recording when I?ve done this with other pcm-based recordings.
