Playing my standard issue Equinox. No sibilant distortion noted. Very clean sounding on the "Ssss" sounds, not excessively bright. Must be that super hot audiophile pressing!View attachment 80282
Styx ~ Equinox
My favourite Styx album, a Desert Island Disc for sure.
How long since I last played this audiophile pressing….40 years?
Half Speed Mastered, pressed by JVC in Japan. Clean and utterly quiet.
Sibilants though are brutal.
Could blame my TT set up or the settings on my phono stage, but this is the only LP that sounds like this so…,
