when i got that "Revolutionary" CD, i had a SVS PC12-Plus for a 3000 cu.ft. room (2 adjoining rooms through a doorway), and i remember that on one track, at some moment, there was one note that the sub could not reproduce and there was lots of port chuffing.

then i added another sub, a SVS PC13-Ultra, and played the same track again; this time, no port chuffing at all and excellent reproduction of all the infra sounds.
this combination is just loafing playing this disc, just like it does on the most difficult movies, soundwise.

the usual playbeck level i use is around -3dB re Reference Level, but i played it once at +2.5dB, and it was a huge crystal clear blast that i got. Very impressive !

recently i read in a forum some comments written by the chief engineer (i think) who had made the recording. he said that they did not have quite enough time to find the best position for one of the mic, so the 4 Hz signals were too weak in the recording to be useful, but at higher frequencies, for the 64 ft. and 32 ft pipes, all was ok.
(of course, there were no pipes...).

check my room/equipment in the gallery section of this forum to get more details.
you'll see that the reproduction goes down to 10 Hz, not down far enough for a 64 ft. pipe.

to my knowledge, the only sub that can reproduce frequencies that low at high levels and without distortion is the Rotary Subwoofer:
http://www.rotarywoofer.com/
about the recording itself:
http://www.rotarywoofer.com/telarc/telarc%20carpenter%20recording.html

on another "note", what equipment do you have ?

I'm liking it more the more I listen to it. If you want to hear one that was catchy from the first listen, go here and listen to "Giddy Up": STREAM ‘BODYPARTS’ NOW!

Just got back from about 10 weeks in Qatar yesterday, and about the only thing I have to say about the place is it smells like wet dead camels ass. One good thing to come of it was we stopped in Shannon Ireland on the way back and I had some real Guinness on tap. I’ll never drink that crap in a can again, there’s just no comparison.

The other good thing about it was that my room had a wifi hotspot right outside the door so I did a lot of Youtube surfing and found some new metal bands (most progressive metal) that I like.

Welcome back, Dean!!

Hey, thanks for the olfactory depiction of Qatar. . . .I'm gonna wait a bit before dinner now.

I am envious of your Guinness experience.


Those videos are fun--it's an experience in expectations being diverted. With the exception of existttrace, which look the part, the rest, if you had them on mute, you'd kinda expect something completely different on how they sound.

Yeah there is and auditory/visual disconnect with several of the groups. You don’t find to many Metal bands sporting Lolita fashion.

Dean, good to have you back. As far as the smell, I assume that was around meal time, since I heard that was considered quite a delicacy in Qatar.
