Hall & Oates March 20th 1982 at the Arie Crown Theater Chicago IL USA (Master tape debut April 17th 2020)

A Covid-19 Quarantine release! :)

I am not that big a fan of them. But it is an enjoyable listen. I did play it often. Quality is top notch. I remember the crowd looked excited before the start. I had trouble with one song I am sure is a cover. I just could not fine the lyrics and title to match up. Any help would be appreciated! This one sounds very nice turned up on your Hi Fi system. Stay safe and wash those hands often! RB

**Everything I do for my stereo room and gear is carefully chosen for the finest of quality control. This means A to B comparisons for EVERYTHING! I leave no stone unturned. I decide if what I do will end up being a more musical experience and not the opposite like more processed sounding. I split hairs!! I have learned what is more musical from all the decades of listening to differences. Stereo and audio gear is not nearly as subjective as people make it out to be. It is either more musical or more processed sounding at the end of the day. One more thing I learned, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE SAME! Practically the same yes! The same, NO! So with this all said…..I thank all the people here for the great compliments since I came here in 2006. It means a lot to me after decades of sleepless nights and stressful days carrying in top shelve equipment every time out!**

With every digital transfer the master tapes become obsolete. If you try any which way to transfer them again they won't sound as good. As long as there are ample backups of course there is no need for them. The Naim Uniticore is that good!
