A Hard Day's Night




The Beatles - A Hard Day’s Night

It's (Almost) All About the Midrange


Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with specific advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of A Hard Day's Night.

This music has a HUGE amount of upper midrange and high frequency information. (Just note how present the tambourines are in the mixes.) If the record isn't cut properly, or pressed properly for that matter, the sound can REALLY be unpleasant.

One of our good customers made an astute comment in an email to us -- the typical copy of this album makes you want to turn DOWN the volume. Sad but true.

It's (Almost) All About The Midrange

There are two important traits that all the best copies have in common. Tonally they aren't bright and aggressive (which eliminates 80 percent of the AHDN pressings you find) and they have a wonderful warmth and sweetness in the midrange that really brings out the quality of the Beatles' individual voices.

When comparing pressings of this record, the copies that get their voices to sound both present and warm, smooth, and sweet, especially during the harmonies, are always the best. All the other instruments seem to fall in line when the vocals are correct. This is an old truism -- it's all about the midrange -- but in this case, it really is true.
