I'm probably going to upset someone here considering Steve Hoffman did the cutting. I have all the Doors DCC albums on vinyl and I recently bought the CD box set "Complete Studio Recordings". I couldn't believe how good the cd boxset sounded compared to the DCC vinyl. The vinyl sounds compressed and muffled. The CD sounds open, spacial, powerful and refined. I thought the vinyl was taken from original master tapes. I don't play cd's that often because I just love vinyl. My system is LP12/Armageddon/Ekos/XX-2, Naim 72/Hicap/250 so it's pretty good at retreaving the source. The CD player was a £1,200 Denson, under a 1/3 the cost of my deck. Sorry Steve!
