That is brilliant, bazelio. Tang will have to wait before his new copy arrives and can be played on the AS2000. Fantastic.

Yes, I love visiting Italy for holidays. Enjoying the people, food and sometimes a bit of wine too. My last trip was in Sicily Marsala laguna for kitesurf (last October). Very friendly Sicilian habitants !!!

Many music on youtube sound better than on vinyls. And I have just heard a sound clip of Billie Eilish in a suppose to be new audio technology. That thing sounds interestingly great. It was like you in a club walking around hearing her in 8D. (Bonz if you could post that clip I sent you. I dont know how.) Amazing what technology can do. Vinyl is forever but digital is the inevitable.

let's at least have a link or clear description of a specific youtube cut?

"new audio technology' is more than likely some sort of tricky phase thing......or digital expander.....maybe 'Q' sound. unlikely any kind of different audio format, since our digital tools would not be able to play it.

i can tell you Billie's 24/48 Qobuz recordings sound fantastic on my system. nothing technically different, just a really well executed music recording.

Just kidding, i just watched Al Di Meola streamed live from his house. It sounded great on my main system.

My comment was in two different issues Mike. The first part about youtube is not related to the second part about the sound clip of Billie's Ilomilo that I mentioned "new audio technology." I cannot verify what it actually is. Could be just a normal digital recording as you said but I never heard it before. The clip is flying around social network. Gian also said he heard it from his son. It sounds impressive if you dont think much and start doing the audiophile critical listening things. Should sound surreal with your double twin towers.

However if you talk about a sample of better music from youtube than vinyl here is one. I also have two different vinyl pressings of this but they sonically and emotionally sound inferior to youtube.

I think that it has to do with the overall low resolution of the youtube playback chain and the fact that you're researching than listening for the missing information to become bothersome. I've had the same experience with many CDs I bought based on the compressed sample digital files to find them unlistenable and the recording horrible. Often we can't discern the poor recording quality of the medium from online sample files. Going back to Youtube our visual sense come into play enhancing or complimenting the auditory sense.

Tang I think you are talking about 8D sound that is going around. Very millennial naming to start with and an awful one. The tech sound like a lesser version of binaural type sound and more like ambiophonics. It is lesser as the recording itself is not made to sound that way but they use some kind of phasing and create a pseudo surround effect on pre-existing tracks which opens up a lot of other possibilities. Youth is already on their headphones and these kind of technologies work best with total separation of R and L signals. Personally I am wondering what people like Chesky or the pioneers who started the actual tech for real in 70's think. There is now something out there which is not half as good but is more popular than all that has been done before. The key must be being able to apply to pre-existing music.

I am surprised to see that people here like Tang or Gian have not experienced actual binaural or ambiophonic sound, that must be the reason why you are effected by this. Please check; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_recording
