    Is the watermarking present on the 2015 vinyl?

    No, it is a digital process added after mastering is completed. Sean Magee cut the LPs himself, there was no way for the label to add watermarking.

    Is it on the accompanying download included with the vinyl?

    The accompanying downloads for the Universal records (Rush through Show of Hands) are not the same Sean Magee mastering, and as far as I know do now have watermarking. Some of them (all of them?) are needledrops. More information on that upthread.

    The accompanying downloads for the Warner releases (Presto through Snaked & Arrows) are not watermarked.

    I remember they tried to watermark CDs shortly after they were released but the outcry was enough to put an end to it. I don't think the masses would even care these days though. They don't seem to mind putting always listening microphones in their bedrooms and door locks that can be opened by a huge corporation so why would this bother them?

    Thanks for the fast anwer. I will have to check that out today. In any case I completely agree with what was exposed in this thread regarding the watermarking, it's unacceptable. Now I'm afraid to buy hi-res music again, because even if I am unable to appreciate the mess I cannot condone that practice, not in this life.

    SoundStageDirect had the 2015 Grace Under Pressure LP for $4.99 on closeout today. I bought one to help get my cart over $50 for the free shipping. I was going to post the link, but it appears they are all gone now. :shake:

    that’s what happens when you rewind a tape and store it instead of fast forwarding it before storing it

    Fyi, it’s still available at 24/192 at 7Digital. I just bought it yesterday. Cheap too. Same price as the 24/48...$14 and change.
     
  13. Refresh my memory—what album are we talking about here? I would like to check what sample rate I have. Thanks! Never mind—I see you are talking about moving pictures.

    Wellers73 asked about Tom Sawyer in his original question to which Plan9 responded and so on, so I assumed Moving Pictures.

    Nevermind...I just saw your nevermind.

    Deja Vu all over again.

    It was a cut-out the first time around too.
     
  19. Well, Dave Grohl is a big Rush fan!

    Have anyone compared the original 180 gram RTI pressed Snakes & arrows against the new reissue cut by Sean Magee?
