that's all very nice, but one song isn't a convincing argument for the equipment and the money and time spent acquiring "files" to listen to. non-the-less, IF you keep having the same experiences over time without getting "used" to the improvement all too soon, then i would say "write a mini-review" about what you did and how you did it. Maybe you just like Dylan a whole lot? well, not many would disagree with your musical taste...
I have a re-mastered version of Freewheelin' and happy it is part of my collection. can it compare with the polished sound from a Union Station disc
or other more recent folk-genre recordings? i haven't yet made the comparisons.
However, I'm happy that you're happy....
That's what it's all about!
I completely transitioned over to computer audio about 2 years ago from a Modwright tube Oppo 83 (which sounds really good) and have never looked back. I still have the Oppo and just use it for DVD/Bluray movies. My system is a combined 2.1 channel for music and HT.
I see that we are practically neighbors- I'm in Ashland. If you ever have any interest in getting together let me know. I'm always interested in meeting more local audiophiles. They are pretty rare in this valley.
Grab an older hp laptop with fire wire out. Clean everything off the hd and turn off everything. Get (eac) and wavelab. There are a lot of good plug ins that you might find handy. Buy a 3TB HD and you have a great computer based player. Total cost is under $1000, That assumes you have a dac that accepts USB or firewire. If not, buy a spdif USB converter...Under $100. This will make wonderful music.
