Vinyl is in da house. Like the embossed cover. Haven’t cracked the seal on it yet.

My record has finally shipped, will be here later this week. There is a 24/96 vinyl rip out there on a torrent site:
Lovingly transferred from vinyl to 24/96 by Darkivist 2012-04-16

GEAR:

- Spin Clean
- VPI 16.5 RCM with Audio Intelligent Solutions 3-step cleaning fluids
- Milty Zerostat 3
- Technics SL1600 with Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge and KAB Electro-Acoustics record clamp
- Musical Fidelity V-LPS phono preamp
- TASCAM FW-1884 DAW
- MacBook Pro
- Adobe Audition 3.0
- FLAC encoded with XLD

Van Halen is back in a big way! No noise reduction. No fades between tracks – only between LP sides. Manual spot click removal only. You will hear some occasional surface noise if you try hard (it is red vinyl) – deal with it. Or listen to the CD. Enjoy!

I’ve listened to one track so far, and it’s not a huge difference from the CD. It’s a little quieter/more dynamic but not a lot. It is noticeably easier to listen to cranked up than the ear-bleeding mastering of the CD.

Thank You for this. My vinyl came in 2 days ago but I do not have a player to play it on yet.
