    An Audio Porn Experiment!

    Bert Kaempfert knew how to produce chipper, "feel good" "stick to your brain" tunes that were often used as game show theme songs. He also made sure the sonics were spectacular. So here's the experiment: here is "That Happy Feeling" twice sourced from the same 45rpm 12" EP issued in 2004 by the German audio magazine image hifi, from the original master tapes. Your job is to first decide if it's the same transfer played twice (the video is identical), or if these are two different transfers with something changed in the recording chain. If you think they sound identical, please weigh in. Likewise if you think they sound different. And if you think they sound different please say in what way (s). In any case I think you'l find the sound amazing and intoxicating in a very "chipper" way! Don't bother comparing on your phone or iPad!

    Another Non-Audiophile-Approved equipment review -- this time of a USB cassette deck whose sound quality really surprised me -- in a good way!
