This is finally an ensemble that can hardly be surpassed.
G. Paulers DMM Dubplate on the Tech Das Aire Force II with the Dereneville DTT-05

_DSC0029_2.jpg

Pure music - zero groove noise - full dynamics. If there was not the price... ;)
But it is like Formula One. Every little detail has to be right and fit.
If you want to be the best, you have to offer everything - especially money for the research.

The German company Pauler Acoustic has invented a new sound carrier that acoustically puts every vinyl record on the sidelines.
Here are some interesting information about it.

We listened to and tested this DMM Dubplate on an Air Force II.
The scanning was done with the latest linear tracking tonearm from Dereneville - the DTT-05
The cartrige was the soundsmith hyperion with the cactus needle carrier.

The result and the experience can only be described with one word: breathtaking.

take care and stay healthy

Hi Rainer,
What makes Pauler’s discs different from DMM that’s been around for decades and pretty common these days? I’ve heard metal masters in the past and never convinced that they sound as good as lacquer ones.

A NEW FORMAT: THE STOCKFISCH DMM-DUBPLATE

It’s always exciting when you go from an end product, such as a vinyl record, to its original source. Our DMM Dubplate does exactly that. In the process of pressing a vinyl record from an LP-master, a lot of sound details get lost. The DMM Dubplate is of course no alternative to a mass product such as the familiar pressed vinyl record. Still, this experiment is surely very insightful and highly enjoyable for ambitious listeners.

Here’s some technical information about our new format:


Our DMM Lathe cuts the audio into a copper plated steel disc. We normally use this process to create a 14" DMM-Master that is sent to pressing plants for the production of vinyl records. Our new DMM-Dubplate however, is about the same size as a regular vinyl record (though a bit larger, due to technical reasons). This makes it possible to play it on any record player and helps you bypass the loss in sound quality that is caused by the additional steps in the production of records, such as galvanic processes and the pressing of the vinyl.

The DMM-Dubplate avoids issues like pre-echos and crackling noises. The high purity phosphate-copper has very little groove noise and clicking noises are seldom. The tracking force of the tonearm can be left as is. Only one side of a DMM disc is recordable since the backside is not copper plated. Because every DMM Dubplate is unique, the client’s name will be handwritten on the label.

I don't see anything new here other than perhaps the creation of smaller dmm 'dubplate' sized disks (vs 14" masters).

Interesting to hear from @Derainer that his experience with the product is positive.

This speaks, to my thinking, to the skill of the studio staff more than any new tricks!

I don't see anything different from any other DM masters, it's the same process. What's the big deal specially given the digitally sourced pop music on this album for nearly $800? I was given some of these DMMs in the past when we financed a music project with lacquer master to compare and we picked the latter every time.

My understanding is the DMM process has no preecho, more prominent highs, but as it cannot cut as deep/wide, effects the bass, often making it sound bright
they are often very quiet in the groove
