4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, good sound quality, August 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great music, good sound quality. The sound is clear but like so many modern recordings, mastered with too much dynamic compression. Yet the music is so cool I can tolerate the recording's shortcomings. If you want to hear the Red Stick Ramblers with sonic naturalness and purity, try their other album, Bring it on Down, which is recorded with totally excellent, uncompressed, natural sound by Daniel Protheroe.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Katz Best, a Must-Have, June 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
One of Katz's best albums, up there with Crescent Crawl and Transformation both musically, and in sound quality. This is super cool music, engaging, high energy, extremely well recorded and engineered - a pleasant respite from the artificial compressed sound that is all too common especially with rock, pop and blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex to use, but highly effective and sonically transparent, May 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Title says it all. I bought this to make some final tweaks to in-room response after doing as much as I could with tube traps and other room treatments. The DEQ2496 was complex and it took me a while to figure out all the right settings to make it work. But when it did, it worked perfectly. I bench tested it with test signals both pass-through and through parametric EQ, it introduced no harmonic or intermodulation distortion. That's No. Distortion. At. All. This is in pure digital mode between my source and DAC, so I'm not using the DEQ2496's on-board DAC.
Some here say it runs hot, but mine does not even after hours of continuous operation. Perhaps that's because I'm using only optical in and out, bypassing its DA-AD converters, or maybe Behringer improved it.
If you're an experienced audio geek, this box does exactly what it says and it does it well. But its complexity is not for the casual user or the faint of heart.
More detail here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, Works, Cheap - but Antenna is unusable, April 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Easy to build, works great. No config changes needed, all default settings were good. The only problem: the antenna has a magnetic base. Thus it cannot be used in many GA airplanes like mine because it may cause compass deviation. Depending on how you install this in your airplane, you may need to get a different antenna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Reliable, March 28, 2016
I've only burned 3 so far, but each one worked the first time - no coasters. And they play fine in my video system's Blu-Ray player. I'm burning them from Ubuntu 15.10 and an internal LG burner at 8x speed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, if used carefully, March 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These work well. The spheres aren't always quite spherical, but most are and the rest are close enough to be useful. For best results you need to fill the tray very carefully, ensure it's placed in the freezer perfectly flat, and put some weight on top of it evenly all the way around to hold the lid down. What I like best about these is the size: they're small enough to fit in a shot glass. Sure that's small enough to melt fast too. But being spherical, they melt slower than any other shape of the same size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Great - They're HUGE, March 22, 2016

These work perfectly. Just keep in mind they're huge - 2.5" diameter. My whisky glasses aren't big enough to hold them.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid Bruce Katz hit, but not my favorite, March 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Homecoming (Audio CD)
I have almost all of Bruce Katz's albums. They're all great music including this one. However, the quality of the sound production on this album is not as good as the early albums Crescent Crawl and Transformation he did with Joe Harley on Audioquest. Also these songs are a bit more mainstream. That's the only reason I dinged it a star.

4.0 out of 5 stars If Hot Club of San Francisco were Cajun..., March 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bring It on Down (Audio CD)
The first thing that came to mind when I listened to this was the Hot Club of San Francisco Yerba Buena Bounce album from Reference Recordings. This sounds like a Cajun version of that. The Red Stick Ramblers are really good. The sound quality is great too, which is a pleasant surprise given how many modern recordings are dynamically compressed and horribly produced. I saw this was recorded by Daniel Protheroe, mixed by Bob Katz. Yeah, no surprise it sounds good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great on Ubuntu 15.10., March 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered the OEM version of this drive. It came with drive only - no software. That's how I like it. I never use the software these drives come with, since I run Linux. It was simple plug and play with my Ubuntu 15.10 desktop. It reads and writes CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays. Playing Blu-Rays can be hard on Linux due to all the copy protection. This is not a drive issue, so I won't take off points for that. MakeMKV can read Blu-Ray movies to mkv files with no compression or loss of data, which you can then play with VLC, encode into MP4, etc. It also burns Blu-Rays just fine, even dual-layer ones.
Highly recommended.
PS One challenge writing Blu-Rays from Linux is Ubuntu’s built-in CD writing software, cdrecord. It’s a very old buggy version. This happens even with the latest repos on Ubuntu 15.10. It works fine for Audio CDs, data CDs and DVDs. But not for Blu-Ray. To write Blu-Rays reliably from Linux you must replace it with a newer, up-to-date version. The one I used is CDRTools. It installs as a clean repo from from Brandon Snider. It replaces the underlying system 'cdrecord' so it works no matter what GUI app you use (K3B etc.).
