Sound recording for sound recording...youtube sound delivery; I much prefer the other one, sourced from the turntable.

This one here above (it don't matter to me the source); it sounds constricted, distorted, broken, old analgesic losing all its effect, painful, jittery, scary and neurotic. I'm just being honest on how I feel listening to it from that video.

Do you feel some verisimilitude to what I just experienced?
The piano sounds like coming from Yuja Wang's flying fingers. I like Yuja so even from youtube I very much enjoy.

Tang :D

It is okay that you dont think what i said it is correct. I dont even know if it is correct haha. I listen MikeL video and then i listen your video through my iphone. I comment about what i hear. I also listen to Tang youtube through my iphone. Oh well, maybe it is best not to go down this path since you think you knew it all. :D

P/S: just a thought, maybe the piano sounds like in this clip??
That sounds very good.

The full piece (from the exact same album they are listening to):

Thanks NorthStar for correcting me. Didnt think it was her. I thought Yuja or Argerich. Will try to find one on vinyl. I dont mind digital. I still have a JMF spinner with Acqua dac. I lost a lot of money on digital (actually on analog too :D). Imo the later I go back to digital the less financial loss I likely will experience.

Aqua DACs are upgradeable. Not much to lose there, as the upgrades are generally worth the price of admission.

I really like these piano videos. Pianos can sound different...Bosendorfer,Steinway, and Baldwin. After listening so can digital and analog. Systems and recordings too.
Anyway I thought listening on a lazy Sunday afternoon I made this short video.

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in A Minor, Op. 43: Variation 22 - 23 - 24 - by Lang Lang (2005)
I actually played this piece for my senior recital at Shenandoah Conservatory of Music..... then it was aptly named "Soundtrack from Somewhere In Time"
