102-115] The Beatles - Complete Beatles: Digital Vinyl Audiophile Collection? [Mobile Fidelity 14CD]

Copied from original MFSL vinyl copies, most of them sealed and played for the first time. This is likely to be the B Series which means it was copied from the A Series CDRs. Here is some info:

The Digital Vinyl Audiophile Collection (DVAC) began as a closed audiophile project in 2001. It is not a duplication or derivation of the fake MFSL collection printed in Italy and Japan. The DVAC discs are true direct-LP recordings and capture about 90% of the fidelity and 'feel' of pristine MFSL vinyl pressings (the other 10% being lost--or altered--in the digital domain). Moreover, this collection addresses some of the sound-level and artifact problems that persist on virtually all the official CDs, tapes and records. For instance, the new DVAC-4B disc is the first to present the original master recording of Run For Your Life without the "thump" noise.

First, the original DVAC project (A-Series) relied on high-quality pressings (some of which were sealed prior to recording) that could be captured directly with little or no noise. Second, all aspects of the recording and copying involved quality audio components; the original analogue material was never compromised by software filters or home computer equipment. With the exception of Please Please Me, all titles were recorded using the shortest and cleanest signal path possible: phono stage to CD recorder. The result is a "permanent" near-mint collection of rare audiophile recordings.

The Mobile Fidelity LPs used to produce the A-series master discs were solid examples of mint and mint-minus JVC-Japan pressings. In fact, the DVAC discs boast reference quality sound for the three most admired Beatles albums: The sources for Abbey Road and Revolver were virgin (prior sealed) pressings, while the source for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was an equally pristine UHQR pressing! Only rarely throughout this collection can you hear a soft click through loudspeakers. With headphones, inherent vinyl noise and hiss from the original master tapes are more prominent, but seldom offensive.

The new B-Series project exploits the digital format and success of the first collection. The digital master tracks were extracted to computer, de-clicked and/or edited *only* if necessary, and then burned onto new master discs. This supplemental stage improved the intertrack quality of the play discs, and it eliminated the few audible clicks that were captured in the original project. It does not appear that any bit errors were introduced by the two additional copy stages (one read, one write).

The Digital Vinyl Audiophile Collection omits The Beatles (White Album) because the quality and fidelity of the 1998 CD re-issue is already excellent. The digital re-issue of Yellow Submarine sounds even better, but was partially used here to produce a superior 'original' album. For the other 10 titles, the best high-fidelity stereo sound is still limited to select vinyl pressings; hence this collection.

The original albums in this series were all sourced from MFSL vinyl:

Please Please Me (1963)
With the Beatles (1963)
A Hard Day's Night (1964)
Beatles for Sale (1964)
Help! (1965)
Rubber Soul (1965)
Revolver (1966)
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)
Magical Mystery Tour (1967)
The Beatles (1968)*
Yellow Submarine (1969)
Abbey Road (1969)
Let it Be (1970)

* The trader who offered me the set included the Beatles White Album as a 2CD set. But according to the info about the DVAC set, the White Album was omitted. The trader also said his copies were silver discs pressed in Japan. There is a possibility that my copies are not the famous DVAC set.
