So, What's the Story on Pristine Audio?
OK, Romy, what about Pristine Audio? Their site looks like the usual "artificial modesty" advertising, the engineer with the "musical background" and all the fawning "support"...

Anyway, I sure like my Music and Arts Beethoven 9 CD (Furtwangler, 1943), and I am always wishing that someone - anyone - would do "the best possible job" of re-formatting the great old semi-lost recordings. The Brahms Requiem I recently mentioned on the Musical Discussions post was - unfortunately for me - cut straight to either wax or lacquer (hard to be sure from accounts I have read), rather than being taped (magnetophon), so this would be a great example of "recovery/archiving" IF someone actually pulled it off. Unfortunately, the Naxos CD seems to read "too true" to the semi-messed-up original.

If there is already a thread about this, I missed it; but, if so, please transfer this post, apropos.

Best regards,
Paul S

No Pristine crap at this site.
Music and Arts mastering has nothing to do with Pristine Audio and quite many Music and Arts premastering are very good. Pristine Audio is a totally different cap of tea. I do not want to create publicity by criticizing the Pristine Audio’s mastering at my site. Anybody who have brain and hear will be able to hear themselves what kind barbaric garbage they do with sound. The last CDs that I risked to buy from Pristine I trashed out of car window while I was driving from post office where I received the CD. And it was Bruckner!!!
