I have just listened first five tracks so far (because there is some pop and tics all of them) but on track 5 "The Picnic" the problem recur about every 3 second (0:12, 0:15, 0:18...). It is hard to miss if you listen to it little bit hight volume.

I can hear the same kind of tics on the sample track from Intradas web site "Main Title (Part2)" (very weak though it is just an mp3 clip) on timing 0:30, 0:34, 0:38, 0:42, 0:46.






I hear nothing untoward at the times indicated on track 5. I detect a couple of what sound to me like very slight instrument mechanical noises (so faint I wouldn't have heard them if I wasn't looking for them) at 19 seconds and 20 seconds. That's all. I hear no problems in "Main Title (Part 2)".
I'll give the rest a close listen later.

It's just odd to me that the original complaint prompted Intrada to repress the CD and correct the pops and clicks which they admitted were there. There were specific time stamps identified, but the overall pops and clicks didn't seem to be acknowledged beyond those. Then it was chalked up to a mastering anomaly. It's unfortunate that this is the case. The sound quality is indeed stunning, but the popping noises seem to exist alongside the sound field and can be irritating once you notice them. I have learned not to let it bother me. Night Crossing is quite a masterpiece!

Just to be clear -- we repressed the CD after removing the clicks that were a result of the master. The remaining clicks are inherent in the recording -- they are part of the soundfield and can't be removed.

Hi Roger,

Sorry, I meant no insult to you or your company. You have always been good to me as a customer and have given us all so much. Night Crossing is still a wonderful release no matter which way you slice it.
