This has been sourced from a pair of "Direct Cut" LP's, the quality of the sound is superb so the 320k bit rate is retained, along with full stereo not the "joint stereo" so often the default mode of many rippers. An early
version of LAME encoder too, before it became seriously crippled in it's frequency response by successive, so called improvements brought about by changes in the development team.
A side note here to ALL rippers, if you use LAME, use an early version 3.89 - 3.92 has the best frequency response, steer clear of 3.95 -3.98 If you use a front end or an encoder program that uses the LAME code
make sure you replace the LAME executable (lame.exe) or the LAME linked library (lame.dll) that your encoder uses.
(These are usually declared in the set up, or incorporated as default coders by bundling the LAME code in the program installation folder)
Earlier Lame executables and Lame linked libraries are STILL available though not at the usual sites, these mostly contain the later crippled versions.
Early lame versions HERE Expand the RAR file and point your browser at the hypertext (HTML) files in the Lame 3.90 folder they explain the settings required for most uses of LAME.
