I’m not exactly sure where to put this, but I’ll start in this forum.
I’ve got a new tube in my BH Crack so I’m going down my playlist of test songs, and at the moment I’m in the middle of Adele’s “Hello”. I don’t necessarily trust my own ears so I wanted to see if anyone else was hearing what I was hearing.
Overall the recording sounds quite good, but a little before the 4:00 mark it almost sounds distorted, but it could just be the recording. One specific place I hear this is when the lyrics “thousand times” are echoed as Adele is singer the same line. This might just be an odd (to my ears) mix of brushed snares and multiple voices, but I suppose it could also be a DAC or amp artifact. I just don’t have the experience to say.
The recording is from Spotify, and I’m using a Bifrost2 and a BH Crack + SB + T-S 5998.
