Mastercut Edition

Cut in real time on a lacquer disc with metal core produced by MDC, JAPAN the Supersense analogue tape edition comprises Stan Getz/Joao Gilberto as No. 4. The lacquer disc is secured by a special mastercut screw in its sleeve design.

I have many 1st copy transfers from mastertapes via analogue tapes like Miles Davis Kind of Blue which always leaves me in a mood of a caught off listener how clear and full of warmth an original recording can sound. This Supersense original direct pressing of a 1st master tape copy on an acetat bases is a somehow different matter. If you hear Stan Getz ´s saxophone playing from this wonderful record you gonna get crazy. It is a real different world, at least for me, and I might say I got some experience in listening and audio evironment stuff. The reproducing chain wasn ´t that bad 😄. I am very happy not having ended up in an old technology chain stuff comprising nice speakers etc. without sufficient bass and frequency spectrum. That kind of sound got its own charme but will never reach a perfectly built up full spectrum chain over the years improving more and more.

I also compared with the original Verve analogue pressing which isn ´t too bad at all. Nevertheless it will not reach the rich and warm sound the master disc is able to transport.

I am very much relaxed and enjoy listenening!

    Wonderful! I didn’t know about these discs. Funny, how you describe what most of us listen too: ‘ I am very happy not having ended up in an old technology chain stuff comprising nice speakers etc. without sufficient bass and frequency spectrum. That kind of sound got its own charme but will never reach a perfectly built up full spectrum chain over the years improving more and more.”

    I believe the newest component in my hifi is my late 80’s SUMO Andromeda amplifier. Everything else is from the 60’s and 70’s. Still, to me it sounds amazing.

    I will do some research on these and see what titles are available.
    Excellent post Eckart. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Norman,
    vintage units is not the issue. There are excellent phonos, RtRs, carts etc. It is about the preamps and amps being able to deliver the full spectrum of sound to the full range speakers. Just take a small tube amp chain with just the typical horn speakers. You will enjoy a kind of modal music, no power, no drive, not enough bass etc. but to some music aficionados it sounds smooth and enjoyable. Somehow it is a different kind of listening and people from both camps will never accept the others ´ way.

    Best
