    Stumbled onto this thread on Today's Posts. Very nice review, thank you, Mr. Hart. It was of particular interest to me as ITL would be one of my desert island albums as you might guess from my avatar.

    My only basis for comparison was the CD purchased around 1995 and then the MoFi Silver edition on LP. Even on an incorrectly set-up (thank you, Needle Doctor) Clearaudio Concept turntable with Ortofon 2M Black cartridge, I immediately preferred the MoFi mainly because of the soundstage. There was simply more of it there. Listening was done on QUAD 989 speakers and herein may lie my observation regarding bass content. I didn't hear a dramatic difference between the CD and LP. As a matter of fact, on some tracks listening to the CD, I was able to "load" the room.

    The rest of the system at the time included a cj Premier 16LS2 and Premier 140 amp with the C1 Teflon cap upgrade.

    Just one man's observation.

      Bill, that was a great review - a lot of work went into that - thank you! I love this LP and have the MOFI (which I'm pretty satisfied with) and had wondered what value the latest reissue might have. I felt your review was totally informative from that perspective - great job.

      The review made the Lp sound very interesting so I just ordered the new 4AD reissue off ebay for $24 free shipping. My first DCD Lp. I'd heard of them, but never heard them.

        Yes I thought it was interesting that although the latest reissue is a little different, it is still very good. That doesn't happen all that often. I was thinking of ordering it and now I will. Thanks Bill.
