Tube Only / Transistorfrei

EAN/barcode: 4009850011705

"A veritable audiophile delicacy - lovingly preserved historic microphones, a mixing desk consisting of nostalgic V72 amplifiers and W85 regulators, the analogue M5 Telefunken tape recorder - each item a legend in itself! May we proudly present this illustrious combination of equipment, here to preserve beautiful music “TUBE ONLY”, in other words without transistors. The CD leaflet is illustrated with impressive colour photos. Available on CD and even on LP (180g, recorded without the use of transistors). And what about the music? (This is the question music lovers ask nervously whenever the word ""audiophile"" crops up.) Answer: nothing but the best! As is always the case with this violinist, whether he is acting as leader of the Gaede Trio or solo (e. g. on TACET 52 ""Hommage à Kreisler""). With skill and discernment, Daniel Gaede serves us a unique encore menu of virtuoso prize exhibits and enjoyable dream-pieces. He is accompanied by Xuesu Liu on piano and the Polish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Wojciech Rajski. "

Audiophile Audition (04/01/2005):

"German label Tacet began their hi-res releasing with only DVD-A, but recently have been reissuing many of their DVD-A albums as well as brand new ones in a SACD series. Label CEO and engineer Andreas Spreer has, like many other recording engineers, been interested in vacuum tube microphones for some time. more...

Audiophile Audition (03/01/2004):

"Daniel Gaede (b. 1966) is the current concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, a former pupil of Max Rostal and Josef Gingold, which pretty much guarantees his pedigree. He sports a lovely, swift, and polished tone, captured for this recording by the Neumann U47 microphone, the concept′s being to promote a transistor-free audio disc with lifelike sound. more...

Geigenzauber
"Selten passiert es so wie hier: Die CD liegt im Briefkasten, das pics ist belanglos, die Programmzusammenstellung und der Titel wirken auf den ersten Blick fragwürdig. Und dann ist im Booklet noch vor allem von der Aufnahmetechnik die Rede, die den Autor nicht im Geringsten interessiert. more...

Pizzicato (01/01/2003):

"Ich weiß nicht, ob ich je eine Schallplatte gehört habe, auf der die Balance zwischen Geige und Klavier so gut war, auf der das Klavier klar, unverdickt und nicht die Spur von mulmig klingt. more...

image hifi (01/01/2003):

"Das optisch gewöhnungsbedürftige pics mit dem Untertitel ′Captivating Violin Pieces′ enthält eine LP aus Tacets ′Tube only′-Projekt. Von den zwei Neumann-M-49- und zwei U-47-Mikrofonen bis zu den beiden modifizierten Telefunken-V-69a-Verstärkern, die den auf eine Neumann VMS 74 montierten Schneidkopf von Ortofon (DSS 661) angetrieben haben, passierte das Signal keinen Transistor. more...
