HI Michael!

Thanks for lots of information.
Actually, much of what you say makes sense for me too.
But I think the sound don't sound filtered; the sound if I use a KAB, sounds
more filtered I think.

BUT; yes; I can see that it was ment as a "stand alone unit" when it was
introduced, but can hardly think that well-known users like Robert Parker
used it that way when remastering his many LP-compilations from old jazz
78's.

I would really like to learn what other units it was used in connections
with, especially if there is any specific unit that could get rid of more of
that surface noise; since I think that's the main problem with the Packburn.
Simply; it isn't good enough to be the sole surface noise unit for playback
of old 78's.

If you know, please let me know also!!

Best regards
Jan

I was friends with Dick Burns, and whenever he would demonstrate the 
PackBurn he would glow over that active noise reducer.  He LOVED the 
sound it gave!  I would usually ask him to let us hear the system 
without that filter, and most everybody else just tip-toed around not 
telling him that they also thought it sounded like crap.  After all, 
they knew that if they got a PackBurn they could keep it out of the 
circuit.  It might have been nice if there was some way to keep it from 
being a part of the device because its absence might make it LESS 
EXPENSIVE!!!!  But don't worry about you not liking the filter.  I think 
that Dick Burns was the only one who ever liked it!!

You shouldn't be filtering or rolling off the highs before the PackBurn 
anyway.  It needs the full sharp bandwave to know what is impulse noise 
and what is music.

Back when it was introduced, there were no other noise reduction units 
in existence!   I thnk the Burwin and the two Owls came just after.  So 
it was originally intended to be a stand-alone with any necessary EQ 
coming after.
