  1. Holy shit this is awesome! Just listened to the Chicago show last night. Goddamn. So glad I get to hear this again, I had no context going into that show so it was a lot for me to take in at the time and came away not knowing what I just had experienced. Man does this sound so good after having heard the other AE_LIVE recordings and their recent work. Cheers Bob and Jon!
  2. high-frequency edges get dulled. try an a/b comparison with 6ie.cr there are more details in high frequency waves because they're smaller Yes. the high frequencies and sub bass frequencies will get cut on lossy audio. You won't notice it most of the time on very compressed music, but through some nice cans or speakers and with detailed music like Ae you will be able to pick it out. 6IE.CR is a good example too. Just listened to a lossless rip of my Draft cd last night on new headphones and holy shit I've never heard this album sound like that.
  3. actually really dig that NTS T. Shame I don't really wear T-shirts anymore lol. Still I might buy it just to add to the collection. I suppose it could be like a team jersey. Only ever put it on while istening to NTS Sessions.
  4. Yeah the auto translation was fun. Overall really cool read tho. Thanks for posting that!
  5. Finished Session 4 on vinyl. So I can say there are no issues on all 12 discs. Just a few comments on Session 4, column thirteen is amazing. Out of all the sessions, this one the vinyl shows the most crackle and pops during the quieter parts of all end and mirrage. Also I have to say that the effect all end has had on me in the past seems somewhat lost in having to switch between three parts. It is interesting they gave shimripl casual its own miniature ending. Love having this on vinyl and will certainly spin it more in the future, but the digital release is still the definitive version and probably will be what i listen to most often. Will dive into the CDs next.
  6. Finished Session 3 on vinyl today. Again, no playback issues whatsoever. Love how off the walls this one gets. some highlights for me this time around were acid mwan idle, fLh, g 1 e 1, nineFLy (holy shit does it ripples your floors, love this one, particularily the thickest track on the wax yet), and icari. going back to nineFly. it's like you're drowning in a huge vat of resinous cannabis honey and there is like a shimmer of light you can hear reflecting off the edges of the steel walls.
  7. sounds to me like this thread really went off the raels but yeah while I personally don't mind bqbqbq, it's not a track I'd pick out to play on its own. I do prefer nineFly and four of seven to it tho.
  8. Ha I have a bottle of Rare Breed. Opened. 101 is good stuff too tho. I will forever associate NTS Sessions with Whisky; I was drinking scotch malt whisky the first time I listened to it in its entirety.
  9. Listened to Session 2 on vinyl today. Sounds great. No playback issues. I can say that I noticed that the 3rd disc in Sesssion 2 was considerably more bowed than the others (all of them have a slight bump in them tbh) but it did not make the needle jump at all. If it were a 45 it might be an issue as I have some 45 rpm discs where that is the case, but as it stands I had no problems. Also, 9 chr0 is killer on wax!
  10. Have you played with your counterweight at all? Sorry silly question maybe. I can try, but it hasn’t happened with any other side of vinyl so far. I noticed that four of seven has the heaviest bass of all the tracks on session 1 so the tracking force thing mentioned by Marked might be a good idea. Do you see any warping or defects in the surface of the vinyl?
  11. Played back Session 1 on vinyl just now. Sounds amazing to my ears. As good as I remember it. Been a few months since I last listened to this so it's gonna be fun revisting it again. No playback issues, pops or clicks etc. Would love to play this on a more powerful system again like I did with the wavs back in April. Tho whenever I get around to taking a trip to this stuff I think I'll stick to the wavs for the gapless playback.
  12. while still in the shrink wrap my vinyl set did look a bit bowed, but now that its been opened it looks fine.
  13. like this? NSFW lol something like that, yeah. on a side note, everyone else has probably gathered this by now, but I hadn't chequed discogs so upon examaning the vinyl I'm seeing they've split shimripl casual into two sides and all end into three. Interesting. Would guess it's to do with the frequency dynamics and space. all end would have sounded crap split into only two sides I'm sure.
  14. Just picked up my slabs of rich autechre meat. No customs duty for me. I did choose the FedEx Couriered tracking and am in the US. That is shitty to hear about the customs people are having to pay. I've ordered clothes and shoes from Scotland and England, some orders which were around 200-300USD or more, and have never had to pay customs. Have not even opened the seal on it yet so cannot comment on the auido quality at this time. Gonna see if a phographer friend of mine will shoot some nice pics for me as my phones camera is trash.
  15. mine was delivered today. will be picking it up on Sunday cheers to teh 'techre
