BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
New 2015 Re-Rip!

About the Re-Rip:
This is a brand new 2015 transfer using the Ortofon OM Super 30 stylus. The original transfer released in 2011 used the Ortofon 20 stylus. Although the 20 is a good stylus it does not have near the dynamics or tracking of the OM 30, thus providing better sound quality. Of note in 2011 I was using click repair on all of my transfers I have since abandoned that technique and now only manually remove all clicks and pops. It is a more tedious and time-consuming method, but the results are better. I also now use iZotope RX for all resampling. No processing or EQ is added to my transfers. Since 2011 my equipment has also been upgraded to a new pro-ject carbon turntable and higher quality tube for the Bellari pre-amp. If you grabbed the original 2011 release I hope that you will give this new transfer a listen I think you will find greatly improved. Enjoy!
