Ok , finally getting round to listening to both versions of woodface vinyl .( wife and kids out )
rega plannar 3 turntable and Eltax floor standing speakers .
Have to say to my limited audiophile skills they sound pretty similar . At first I thought the new one had more bottom end , but I’ve subsequently dismissed that .
I think the origional has a slightly brighter top end ? But that’s about it .
Woodface has always sounded fantastic to me on vinyl - Nicks bass almost sounds like I’d imagine it did hearing it through the studio monitors for the first time !
Both sound great , but apart from your preference for top end , I can’t say that one sounds better than the other ...
others may have better ears or better gear !
