Usher Audio SD-500 Loudspeaker Review

One of my reference recordings for its sense of space is the Cowboy Junkies 1988 sophomore release The Trinity Session (RCA), which was recorded after hours in a gothic revival church. The recording took place almost entirely in one session using a single mic and DAT recorder. Trigger alert—this is one recording where the original CD sounds better than its vinyl counterpart. I own both and I’ve compared them. The band’s desolate readings of country and folk classics audibly fill the large church and the beautiful reverb adds to their haunting power. To be sure, it’s a simple recording that sounds great on most equipment, but the DMD tweeter takes it to the next level.
