Does a Type-S machine provide any improvement in sound quality over a Type-R machine when playing back LP2 recordings via an external DAC? Not sure whether the benefits of Type-S are applied during the digital to analogue conversion within the MiniDisc player or before that point. Specifically talking about the MDS-JB940 and MDS-JB980 if that is relevant.
Hi folks, Been lurking on the forums for too long. I'm a long-time MiniDisc fan with a JA20ES, 2 x MZ-N1, MZ-N710 and MZ-RH1 to play with. I'm not intending to buy any more in the short term! Anyway, I am interested in people's perceptions of Type-S DSP improvements to LP recordings. I have a number of dance music discs recorded in LP, some of which do seem to benefit from the Type-S chippery in the RH1. Cymbal sibilance and "splashiness" seem to reduce a noticeable amount, which is great. But it doesn't seem universal - some LP discs still have an abbrasive treble quality on any player, while others are definitely improved. I was wondering what other people's aural perceptions are in this regard? Is there a piece of music (recorded in LP) which is genuinely improved for you by Type-S? wg
