Default 1991-08-17 Rough Trade Records AMT #1 new transfer (upgrade?)

LINK TO TORRENT FILE:
https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-nich...17x264.torrent


SPLRA lists lowest gen as VHS1>DVD, but this VHS(X) transfer is brighter, has less cropping, better colors, and appears sharper than circulating DVDs. So I figured i'd put it out there.

This is a VHSX lossless transfer, deinterlaced and encoded via x264. The mkv file has the x264 video, an AAC audio track, and a secondary FLAC audio track.

Let's compare your version...:



...with the one restored by Alt Copperpot5 seven years ago, no longer listed:





Nice improvement! He has cut the moving horizontal edges. The rest of your version is definitely better. Sharper picture, clearer sound, not as loud published.

Thanks for the comparison! Wish I knew Jason did a cleaned up version, I woulda asked him for his DVD source to compare. Ben at SPLRA did a quick comparison for me, so I went by his screenshots.

As always, the mkv torrent quality will be much better than YouTube.

copperpots is better, the sound leans to the left of the stereo field on the version just posted.

Yeah the audio is up for debate. I think this has clearer audio, but for sure the channel mixing is odd. Video is definitely better on this one. Maybe someone can do a resync with this new video source.

The soundquality itself is worse. His source wasn't as good.

I was watching some b-ball the other day and there's this dude with the last name Bonga and the old announcer kept on accidentally calling him bongo. Must've said it 4 times.

Poor dude, he never gets much playing time but it was a blowout so he was probably stoked to go back and watch the prime-time footage and some asshole keeps on calling him bongo!
