Mark, yes I have that box. Those that were released with mastering by Mark Wilder before sound pretty much the same here. That said about half this box or so HASN'T been out in that mastering or out on US cd before, which makes the box a real treat for ME. Plus, i was able to give away a lot of Brubeck cds and save about two thirds the shelf space for Brubeck on Columbia that I had before.

Thanks Lon,  I think I'll pick that one up.  I've noticed that on Germany's Amazon the box sets are usually cheaper but the single CDs and two CD sets are usually more after subtracting VAT and converting from Euros to USDs. Is this what you have found?  Mark.

This CD from Dusty Groove next...
I'm almost done listening to my most recent purchases...time for more!

That's about what I've found too. One or two cd sets from Japan or Europe I usually try to get from Dusty Groove if they carry them. Yes, I can save a few dollars ordering directly but it's really not that much more expensive to order from Dusty Groove.

Nice.

Did you listen to any Tania Maria? I'm going to dig out another one, the new one whetted my appetite.

Right now, from the mono box. Sounds great!

Lon,  I listened to two live clips of her on you tube but I intend to listen to the Duo set with Eddie Gomez  on Spotify soon.  I thought about ordering one of her recordings then decided to wait.  I've got 42 CDs coming with this current order.  I'd like to spread out my purchases.  Mark.

Lon, I've listened to the first four tracks of the album "Tempo" and really like it.

In another thread Steve D talks of matching of input tubes and differences in volume between channels.  I don't have my speakers in identical positions so I attributed my difference in volume to this but now I'm wondering if it may be in part due to a weak tube.  Just using the Torii alone isn't satisfactory but with the CSP3 in the system I'm able to adjust each channel to balance the volume.  I also like to decrease the volume a bit on hot recordings where the drums are panned to one side...usual to the right.

Lon remind me...what output tubes are you using?  Mark.

Well, it's possible that the asymetrical arrangement of the speakers is causing an imbalance in the channels as well. Using the CSP3 with the Torii is in my opinion always a good thing and the gain adjustment is a great tool. I've tried to prefer the source straight into the Torii, but I always seem to choose the CSP2+ in front of it, even more so now that the CSP2+ is equipted with beeswax caps. (Which is not a cheap addition, about 500 or so).

I'm using JJ 6CA7 tubes Mark. Others here have reported failures with these but I've only had one fail on me out of about a dozen or sixteen. And that one rattled around in the back of a very vibrating UHAUL from Texas to Ohio.

Glad you are digging "Tempo!"
