This site should truly sort the music lover from the hi-fi lover. Register for free on www.wolfgangsvault.com and listen to a choice of a huge amount of live recordings of great bands from years ago. So far I’ve listened to Elton John, Black Sabbath, Little Feat and Grateful Dead. There’s enough music to keep me listening for weeks.
Sound quality is generally rather good. Good in a bandwidth limited, obviously live but solid sort of way, but one recording did sound as if it was made of a fluttery cassette.
I played it back from my HP2133 into a M-Audio Transit into my Behringer SRC2496 upsampling to 24/88 all feeding my Naim system. Maybe a bit OTT but well worth the effort.
Thanks to John Atkinson, editor of Stereophile mag for bring this superb resource to my attention
