Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Vinyl can never come close to fidelity in a million years, and inevitably imparts a variety of audio distortions all of which are objectively measurable Again, I agree. The problem is that the so called 'loudness war' has meant mastering has become so loud that vinyl - with all the limitations you ...

that's a very odd way to think about it :lol:

CD, with its 44.1kHz 16bit PCM audio, *can* come very close perfect fidelity if the mastering engineer isn't a total dick.
.. and if the mastering engineer is a total dick ?
My point precisely.

As of today, I'm the proud owner of a 'Red Face' Equinoxe CD. To confirm, it has the original 1978 album mix on it - chuffed :D

Didn't pay silly money for it either :D

Funny that, as it was surely recorded on digital to begin with in 1997?! I mean Jarre was recording on digital in 1984! Yes, but stopped. Rendezvous, Revolutions and Chronologie were recorded in analogue - Cities In Concert and WFC were digital recordings. The AAD, ADD and DDD recording logos were ...

I finally picked up a copy of the trilogy today - haven't listened to it yet, but I noticed that the booklet claims Oxygene 7 - 13 is a remaster by Dadwater "from the original analogue tapes" :roll: All the 2014-15 remasters have this statement on them. A cut-and-paste job, for sure ...

Any ideas why that 0:21 track on Concerts in China (after "Orient Express") is called "Magnetic Fields 1"? It has absolutely nothing to do with that particular piece. It's an error that was not corrected from the very first vinyl pressings. In the picture sleeve inlays for the s...
