    You appear to be something of an expert on this particular topic.​

    Just a thought - anyone tried heating CD's - like 220 degrees for 10 minutes?

    But this works:

    Nespa Pro - finest CD enhancement tweak I have ever experienced.

    (Have I mentioned this before?)

    I've listened to the two CD's from Zanash (Pete) and my ultimate conclusion was that I personally couldn't detect any difference between them.

    I don't think that it's a particularly easy thing to judge as I find that the harder I listen the more difficult it is to be sure of whether I can hear differences or not, especially when you're constantly getting up and down etc, so having listened with utmost concentration several times I then repeated the exercise just letting the music 'wash over me'. As I said, at the end I was confident that I couldn't hear any changes between the two.

    Despite this I am happy to have given it a whirl especially when the CD's were provided FOC to me to try, so they are now up for grabs to the next person. Pete sent them to me at his own expense so I'll do the same for anyone else (in the UK) who would like to try. If no-one else is interested I'll return them to Pete.

    If you want to remain anonymous (;)) then feel free to pm me instead!

    Shouldn't mix business with pleasure 'SQ2', it can skew reality, endless repetition, living confusion etc etc :MILD:

    thanks ...have done the freeze with a few dozen so far, though have done no more CD to CD comparisons. From the Cd's i know well, i without doubt notice a difference, strangely, i feel to be getting greater improvement from CD's of the nineties, but then...i 'mostly' prefer the CD sound of that period anyway, if not special, many later copies sound to my ears to be heavily compressed, lacking depth, narrow and tinny sounding, the amount i've returned to shop after suffering a listen !

    Vinyl is better, for sure, though there's some rough vinyl too. Think it was posed earlier in the thread ..... just to enjoy the music, i agree, but then, i know and have/had a few well thought of amps that i won't get to hear the end of a side through they become that boring that quickly i could fall asleep, what a journey... perhaps once one gets it right for one's self, the infinitesimal becomes more apparent ? :)

    Yes; I would behappy to try them.

    I expect the same conclusion as yourself.

    In my experience these differences are quite distinct.......you certainly shouldn't be having to force yourself to look for them in anyway.




    I await the cds with interest...if they are still around. :)







    Chaps, can we have a bit less of the attitude stuff?

    There has been more than enough to date as it is.

    No, obviously.

    A. you aren't good enough to hear the difference.
    B. your hifi isn't good enough for you to hear the difference.
    C. all of the above.

    Sorry, my mistake, I didn't realise that you were referring to the unfunny kind of jokes. How silly of me, you jape is so obvious now I realise it was one of those not funny jokes.

    ha ha, you card...

    If you put your head in the freezer overnight the sound of your CD's will be really cool!!!
