I've read in a number of different threads on this forum that Steve will often use a "split feed" to simultaneously master to different formats, such as LP and SACD, as was the case with the Blue Note reissues. Now forgive me if I seem dense, but my puny little brain tells me that splitting an audio signal would degrade the sound quality. I assume that I must be misunderstanding something about this process because I can't imagine Steve using a method that would lower the sound quality of the end product. Can somebody enlighten me to the technical aspects of how a split feed works? Maybe even our host can chime in. Cheers!
