OK, we've all got our test records with 20-50Hz sweeps and at least one copy of Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture with the cannons and our favorite test records but I was wondering (dangerous)........
What is the lowest musical note on vinyls in song(s)?
I was quite dismayed to read the referenced / linked article in the "How HiFi Are LPs" topic which included this:
"it is not uncommon practice in [cutting] disc masters to use a 70Hz high-pass [bass cutoff] filter, except for organ recordings. It is generally found that the elimination of these very low frequencies gives an improvement in overall sound quality, since the low-frequency noises [in and about the studio] are eliminated, and no significant musical content is removed."
I have Jimmy Smith and Bach organ LPs however, I have yet to find a note(s) as LOW as on What Goes Around.......Comes Around, Justin Timberlake, section after the spoken word, OK rap, on CD.
Of course there's the obligatory boom, boom drum, but the notes around 6mins + to the end are LOW. Even the salesman at the audio store said they were LOW when I brought my CD to demo the sub he wanted to get rid of.
There's quite a bit of LOW bandwidth on DVDs, what's pleasantly surprising are newer digital TV broadcasts (over airwaves) and radio stations.
Please point me to some outstanding pressings.
