CommentAtlantic SD 7208 Original Vinyl Pressing (Pecko Duck/Proky), First press matrix label variant pressing @ SP = Specialty Records Corp. (Specialty Records Pressing), Olyphant, PA. Was originally sealed before opening it. One thing wrong with the pressing, Side One has a whoosh sound during playback. It's not noticeable during Rock and Roll or Battle for Evermore. Black Dog and Stairway it's noticeable until the track gets louder. Still cool to own an original Peck Duck pressing. Don't know why someone keeps deleting my post... -Because something is severely wrong with the way you are transferring the LP to digital. It is not remotely giving close DR values with the examples you've posted compared to other pressing's I have or other's posted here. Of course DR values for an LP is not going to be exact, they should be close to other examples. I have the same exact pressing, it should be around 11 Edit - would love for you to tell me exactly what I'm doing wrong... I have a Pro-ject Debut carbon with a Ortofon Bronze cartridge going into my Marantz PM-8004 Phono Input. With the record out going straight to my PC and using Audacity to capture the Vinyl rip at 96kHz/24bit. The only changes I make are manual pop and click removal with the repair function. Outside of that, I make no changes whatsoever. It sounds tremendous to me. ***I expect you are setting the capture levels too high. The levels must be set with plenty of headroom and the file captured should be normalized to peak at 0dB later. Edit - I will create a test per your feedback but I'm already capturing the recording at or higher than -6 on the meter using Audacity. I'm definitely not recording it loud. My concern with volume normalization is I'm altering the audio signal from what is being captured. I just don't like to alter the original recording if possible. I will give it a try though.
