Naxatras III Magnetic Fidelity LP/Duplication Master

Comparatively listening to the Naxatras III audiophile vinyl cut and the tape directly transferred from the master, as edited by engineer Jesus Agnew and Magnetic Fidelity, leads to the appreciation of the analog sound values, when the process is, indeed, impeccable. But, at the same time, the prerequisites are far from simple, both in the recording/transfer and the playback chain. For us, this was a research project that, probably, took too long but it was worth every minute spent!

And, although the audio/video and the home entertainment systems market sector appears to be more in a consolidation phase, rather than in a booming phase, where the major manufacturers try to pass the recent developments to a wider consumer audience, there surely were many interesting things to see listen to at Las Vegas!
