    Re: Abbey Road

    Gotcha. Interesting about the vocal placement and how pronounced anvil is. I swear sometimes they remix just to be different.
    Also a reminder of how artificially "constructed" stereo is! Some folks talk about it like it has magical properties.


    Agree with the last part. As I noted in original post, not a Beatles fan, but my toes were tapping to a couple tracks. IOW, I was enjoying the music.

    cheers,

    AJ

    Re: Abbey Road

    I think this version is more enjoyable. Besides sounding fabulous, it just feels right to me.

    The anvil sounds like an anvil on my system. Perhaps more towards the back of the stage but it’s still and anvil and it hammered Maxwell.

    But was it a “Silver” hammer?

    Re: Abbey Road

    Finally found the time to listen to the 50th anniversary edition.





    I really like the multi-channel mix.
    It makes me hear things I hadn't noticed before - in my 2009 stereo remaster.
    I have yet to listen to the new stereo version.
    And no, I haven't heard the LP.

    I do believe that it is a Platinum hammer... shhhh... they just told you it was silver... the lying bastages ....

    I love the 50th anniversary download. The best I have ever heard The Beatles sound, in my view.
