Hi Fi Review (1/3/2010) Author: 何森

Kharma 特輯 Kharma Test & Calibration CD

20年前Chesky Records推出的Jazz Sampler & Audiophile Test CD Vol.1是市上首張實用價值極高的試碟,用以測試音響系統的音場、定位、相位及低電平線性可說快而準,其後在92年及94年分別推出的Vol.2及Vo1.3同樣有趣好玩。令發燒友大開耳界,閣下可能亦買齊三張。可惜近年類似的試機及校聲專用CD乏善可陳。本碟是我們期待已久的發燒級試機CD,看看封面那套Boulde前、後級及一對過百萬元的Kharma Exqiusite Reference揚聲器便知有「聽頭」。全碟共25段音樂均由荷蘭發燒label STS Digital唱片公司著名錄音師Fritz de With錄音及混音,所有咪線、訊號線及電源線均使用Kharma出品的極品級貨色,AD轉換器用Weiss Gambit系列,數碼錄音機用最先進的Tascam DVD-l0OOR,在Kharma總部的一號試音室進行混音,以Kharma Exquisite MP350功放及Exquisite Midi EXQ-M-lA揚聲器鑑聽。

錄音師詳細說明25段音樂測試的聲音特點及大家須留意的細節。頭盤5段是例牌菜:左、右、單聲道、立體聲及反相測試,一試便知有否駁錯線!Track4與Track5是同一段立體聲音樂,前者正相,後者反相,若兩件XLR極性不同的器材(2正3負→3正2負)以平衡線連接,聽到的聲音便剛巧相反,你會聽到是Track4反相,Track5正相,發燒友必須查明每件器材XLR輸出的極性『註:Accuphase,Marantz,Luxman,Burmester長期以來的XLR極性是3正,但日本Sony,Yamaha,Denon,Esoteric,Pioneer及幾乎所有歐美機是2正』。Track6及7用槍聲分別試左、右聲道的發聲速度及自然殘響時間,若然左、右聲道效果有差異,顯示皇帝位與左、右喇叭位置不對稱,你必須用拉尺量度距離微調喇叭擺位。Track8試交響樂團的立體聲連貫性,錄音師話大聲段落易出但輕聲片段較難。Track9試音像的高度感。TracklO可試特色古鍵琴的驚人深度感。Trackll試教堂管風琴,聽聽是否有強烈的置身於教堂內的臨場感。Trackl2試教堂的堂音空間感,一左一右兩班「非專業」的修女對唱必須有連貫無駁口的寬宏空間感。Trackl3試五個鼓的動態與節奏感,敲打音叉的金屬質感。Trackl4試起動與完結的瞬態響應,木管樂團的堂音與動態表現。Trackl5試置身於錄音現場的真實感,你可以清楚聽到聽眾發出的雜音。Trackl6以小提琴、手風琴及double bass各一(左、中、右)的近咪錄音玩聲。頭1分27秒只是近咪收錄的直接聲,之後加入兩支收錄堂音咪所捕捉的堂音,小提琴的發音位置必須夠高,若然離地不足4呎便不合格。Trackl7試猝發強音,排笛聲必須夠乾淨純淨,若然排笛的最強音有拆聲失真就不合格。Trackl8以絃樂四重奏(整間以木建造的教堂提供極佳的天然殘響)試鮮烈的音場音像與臨場感,大提琴聲真實無比。Trackl9至22四段音樂試接線(Crystal Cable,Kharma,Siltech及vdH),你可聽出哪段用哪款線嗎?Track23是在一間5x20米的小型爵士俱樂部的現場錄音,大家須盡量調高音量去還原出現場的音樂動態範圍。Track24是錄音室錄音,STS最近期的皇牌女歌手Judith Nijland口形高企,定位非常清晰,整體聲音開揚通清。Track25以近咪錄音收錄了最甜美悅耳的人聲清唱,加入Marantz AXlO00製造的殘響,令人聲聽來更自然動聽。

我用家中及公司大房兩套組合,確認了本碟的音質臻最佳示範級:遇強愈強,絕對有料到!

我又聽過同一唱片公司於2007年推出的Burn-In CD。此碟採用了多種大家熟悉的樂器以高電平(-l bB)錄音,包括管風琴、敲擊樂器、爵士鼓、鋼琴、短笛、高/低音色士風、低音大提琴及一些特殊音效,涵蓋了多種常聽樂器的最高頻至最低頻,整天連續以安全大音量播唱,用來煲機可在最短時間有效把全新的器材、揚聲器及接線break-in,打通其經脈,盡快享受最佳重播效果。除此之外,亦可利用各段音樂測試音響組合重播各種樂器的質感是否像真。一碟二用,較那些以訊號產生器產生的單一頻率正絃波訊號煲機碟有更高的實用價值!
