Does anyone feel like I do that T69 Collapse only 'works' in the context of the video (Weirdcore did an amazing job syncing up the visuals to the beats)?

It definitely works better.

I can’t stop listening to this. It’s just massive sounding. My new system should be done early september. It will be the best sound system I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to christen it with this gem before driving my family crazy with the NTS Sessions...

I'm intrigued. I'm looking at re-doing my stereo but having a hard time finding larger, high SPL but also good sounding speakers on a reasonable budget. Will you share to the stereo thread when built?

Sorry too derail; but

 

Ive been through the ringer with systems. My advice old tube amps. Techs can work on them forever and they stay sounding amazing. The tubes are cheap. 
 

My set up is a dynaco st-70. With dynaco A25 speakers. The sound is shocking. You can touch it. Squiggy, soft. wonderful.

All cheap too. st-70 $500, a25's $200 a pair. Of course have a tech recap, etc. Nothing digital.

 

 

my set up

Really like T69 collapse. Wonder if I'll get the "WOW" feeling I did when I first heard drukqs. That was my first Aphex Twin experience. I then worked back through his stuff. I'll never forget when I first heard Wax The Nip. Absolutely amazing!!!

drukqs was my first one asswell and i got that WOW feeling with this one, hope you guys will 2

I remember popping that shit in the car, and the 1/2 punch of Jynweythek Ylow->Vordhosbn just fucking floored me. Remember thinking "oh, shit YES - this is the shit I've been looking for."

When I got Drukqs, I played disc 2 first by accident and thought just the same after 54 Cymru Beats !!!

Subjecting a family to new autechre is hilarious to me. And hell yes to to this sounding massive. That is the word. So much of it sounds huge. Big room aphex. Finally a proper sub assault by the man.

To anyone scared to listen to the 96 kbps, it sounds great, and I have plenty of OCD about sound 

At worst it sounds like you're hearing it on a very clear fm radio station, it's not like a live video from someone's phone

 

Maybe I'm crazy but these tracks have a richer sound at 96 than the hangable auto bulb cd at full quality

 

It isn't perfect but who cares, just break it in now and we'll have the hq versions soon enough, just like the soundcloud dump

Trust me you'll thank yourself later-- is anyone regretting hearing them at this quality? I'm so glad I did

Caved and grabbed the 96k. Definitely some fresh parameters in here.

 

Promising myself to only listen to the 96k on a bluetooth speaker, saving headphones and big system for the pristine digitals.

I can tell there are some delicious details in there I don't want to spoil yet.

 

I speculate this direction was spurred in part by his purchase of the RYTM.

listening to them in 96kb/s now wont satisfy my masochism like waiting an extra month to listen to a .flac of music that i already purchased will

Yes I have that delayed gratification mentality as well most of the time, but just saying the sound quality is pretty great

It sounds more like 192kbps, it's well encoded with joint stereo and noticeable artifacts are rare

How is that even possible? I can easily notice 96 from 128 from 192. 192 to 320 is harder but definitely audible with good gear and good ears.

 

It's very strange to me how 96kbps could trick you into being as high as 192, now im tempted to check it out but feel bad about it. I will wait for the real thing. It's been a while since I got a physical copy of something. Hopefully it's easy to find when I go back to London. Funny how the day I left for a week all these aphex twin ads start showing up all over the place.

I've been listening to this EP more than I listened to anything that came out post-Syro (including Syro too).

Okay guys, we need to formulate a strategy to have this leak in higher quality ASAP. I can’t go on ignoring this after having a taste.

Same. And I have no regrets listening to the 96k rip. I love it already and it's exciting to think this could sound even better. I've settled into this rip so much that when the EP comes out it will feel like its a remastered high def re-release of a classic.

Worked from home yesterday with this on repeat.  8 hours-ish?  I keep getting something new out of every listen.  

 

Also I agree that the quality of the leak is much better than you would expect at 96k.  I've already got the special vinyl and cassette on pre-order, and I'm happy to wait for those, but I'd love for Warp to just dispense with the FLAC.
