Right now I'm trying to be a music aficionado and I'm failing miserably. Maybe you folks can help me out. I saw a concert by Led Zep years ago that was broadcast live [I believe I had satellite at the time] and I recorded it on VHS. That particular concert was beyond outstanding, especially sound-wise. I'm guessing about 12 or so years ago. They had played the song "Kasmir" with an accompanying semi-full orchestra. It was the best I have ever heard that song but the recording I made [on a Mitsubishi SHF VCR, none the less] sounded like ass when I went to go replay it.
I would like to find that concert again, this time finding a better recording medium or at the very least on par to what I heard live broadcast over the rig at the time...... Can any of you help?
The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

A) The bass I'm not talking in your ear bass, I mean entire body visceral bass,
B) The clarity of all the sounds, while some of the sound verged on painful, I heard no unintended distortion
C) The dynamic range
D) Placement of the sounds.
Not long after DSotM I listened to a piece I also enjoy called "Alone Together" which is just a bass and female vocal piece off of a Telarc Jazz sampler. I enjoyed;
A) In the room reality. The texture of the sound that immersed me in the fantasy of being there
B) The juxtaposition of an acoustic bass and the female vocal
So what kind of listener am I? Ill let you try to figure it out, I would call myself appreciative, perhaps.
