How does this one sound compared to the 35DP-4?
I don't have either, but here's what I've gathered from previous, and numerous(!), postings:
The 35DP-4 is the first japanese pressing, the WYWH Holy Grail, with two tracks and breath of life according to those who own it / have heard it.
The 28DP 5005 is the third or fourth japanese edition and not quite as good. (The "I didn't inhale"-version, maybe? )
Please correct me if this is inaccurate, anybody in the know!
I own the 35DP-4 and it is easily the best version I've heard. It's the closest you can get to the original vinyl, in my opinion. I just downloaded a 28DP 5005 rip and it sounds ok, but the high end is a little on the bright side. It's also much louder than the 35DP-4 and occasionally clips. 35DP-4 ftw.
To me the 35DP 4 is a ghost so I can't comment about it
The search function is still not working as well as it could. So if anyone would like to respond or post a link, feel free.
More than enough to keep you busy for days
Forget it. Nothing even come close to the 35DP-4. It's just one of those things.
A little clip of the aforementioned DP-4, as it should be heard
...Properly decoded(pre-emphasis) for your listening pleasure.
Forgive my ignorance, but I've seen that "Breath of Life" phrased used quite a bit on this forum. What does that mean exactly?
Oh, this should be good.
It's a descriptor for a recording/pressing, be it whatever media, that is so realistic it sounds like you're listening to a private performance. 3 dimensional presence, referred by many as imaging plays into this as well and helps define instruments and performers proper placement in this realistic in the room presence.
It's kind of like learning to drive. You may believe you have a good idea of what is involved, but until you actually do it it is really only a vague understanding. Once you hear it you will definitely know.
So you're saying it's a quality inherent in the recording itself (exclusive to certain masterings) or something exploited by a high end audio system?
Separate names with a comma.
