回覆 (61): A hymn no more
If the first two minutes sound familiar to you. Almost like one of the song from a film. Then you are not totally incorrect.  
Other than it was music from Holst "The Planet". It is also a song. Well, precisely speaking, it is a hymn for the patriotic Brits that you may have heard on TV or a movie.  
 
"I Vow to Thee, My Country". In the second world war, after France surrender to the German. Nazi thought its going to be a piece of cake to invade the Brits and soon the Brits shall surrender. Winston Churchill told the German go to where the sun don't shine. Brits won't surrender. After 7 months of bombing, the brits fought the war with triumph. When Churchill die, the brits all sang this Hymn in his funeral.  
 
If you were as old or wiser than me and had been to catholic school, you probably have sang this in the chapel or church.

回覆 (58): Day of STEREO Classical
Day off today and what I did the whole morning. Four lovely stereo recordings from my little collections!  
 
Mahler with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf. The sound stage is incredible. This is the kind of music made for Stereo!  
 
Three cornered hat. I got this more than 25 yrs ago in a UK small town when the price was no more than a few good CDs. Ah Ah! in mono, no thanks!  
 
There are many good "The Planets". This one with M Sargent is my cup of tea! You like?  
 
There are two versions of the Resurrection I dearly love. One is this by Georg Solti, the other one is by Bruno Walter, six eyes USA Columbia. Either is fine, just make sure you get the 1st edition please.  
 
To me, not only these music must be in stereo, better if they are on LPs and best if they are in 1st edition pressing! Right?

回覆 (57): Day of MONO Classical
Day off today and what I did all morning. Mono listening lor! Four of most lovely mono recordings from my humble collections!  
 
Dennis Brain on Mozart Horn Concerto. I have both the Mono and the Stereo editions and the Mono is just so solid and spacious! Wonderful and Jolly music! Love it all the way! The best Mozart horn concertos ever recorded!  
 
Richter on Prokofieff. I mean what more can I say? I can hear his precise timing that I couldn't have if in Stereo!  
 
The other two are hard to find by Clara Haskil and N Milstein mono recordings. oK la! They surely keep my interests on Mono high for the rest of the day.  
 
Time to look for another mono cartridge la! Right!

回覆 (56): Piano Music
RLau, this is the green cover Emperor I was talking about yesterday by Claudio Arrau. The other must have if you are into 1st edition pressing from Columbia is by Emil Gilels. I am not sure if there may be other Emperor from Columbia. Please let me know if you have the answer for me please.  
 
Both stereo recordings were made before 1960. To me, the best! The air, the presence, the tone is just so............suck you into the music! Awfully beautiful!

回覆 (42): CEO made cake and Tokaji
I can and near the beginning and that is MONO playback. If I can get onto of MONO, I might just move to STEREO one day ! 8^)  
----------------------------------------------------------------------  
 
As a new comer to the world of audio playback. Should I start from CAS and progress to MONO or start at single channel and diminish to 7.1?  
 
Ah! Where does "diminishing marginal utility" fit in?  
 
Confusing, very confusing lor!

Don't blame us, either you like it or you don't !  
 
While some are at the forefront of Hi Fi playback with CAS, I have decided to start where I can and near the beginning and that is MONO playback. If I can get onto of MONO, I might just move to STEREO one day ! 8^)

回覆 (36): Mono
Got up at 5:00am in the morning. So itchy lor as I have not had much chance to listen to MUSIC in the last 72 hours due to work demand.  
 
Hooked up my only mono Audio technical cartridge onto the Alphason Sonata. Never been so wanting to listen to mono in the past. I am sure it all boil down to the result from bad influence mono gangs lor! diawok, wher, Richard.....  
 
I like mono for the lesser complicated, lesser messy presentation. I also like the texture of the piano. More into your room feel than pretending to be in a concert hall. In a way, its more real!  
 
No need to pay attention to my findings if you don't agree with mono. In case you already did, my description is a no surprise to you! Right?
