I had on some Elton John earlier and now it's some Skynyrd.

Thanks Rick, let me know what you think is better, 5.1 or stereo(direct) modes. I was telling Wid the other day I experienced some boomyness(?) during certain songs, not sure if my sub was running to hot, or if my position of my speakers need to be tweaked? Overall I lived the Direct or Pure Direct mode better, I'll have to keep experimenting...

Randy I only listened for the first couple of songs and I had my H/K set to Logic 7 7Ch Music and it sounded perfectly fine for me....much better the the 'Rio' DVD.

I typically do not listen to live music or concert DVDs in stereo mode, just a habit.

Yeah, thanks a lot guys.

I just get done tellin' a young man on another thread that stereo is the only pure way to listen to tunes, and y-all come along and try to get me back to trying the SACD function on my DVD player.

.......the power of suggestion.......unfair.

If you try the SACD you may never go back, there are some truly great SACD's out there.

Neil Young: "Living With War"
It comes out tomorrow.
You can listen here! It's time for us old hippies to get off our complascent asses. Leave it to a seventies icon and the composer of "Ohio" to speak his mind.
It is now becoming fashionable to speak out against this administration and the neocon... sorry I don't want to start another war here.
Let's just say the music is very good.

Personally, I think all you guys and girls north of the border should be very proud.

Ok; HomeDad and oz, I got it all figured out!

I'll get "Living with War" on SACD and have both bases covered.

....now all I have to do is divert some cash from the gas tank to get some new cables and the disc.

(guess I could walk into town)

I'm glad you said it first. I love Living with War.

Another fantastic new release is Bruce Springsteen's new album, We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. Acoustic/roots/folk/Americana. Love it!

This is kind of changing musical directions here but has anyone listened to the new Tool disc "10,000 Days"? It's kind of heavy and intricate at the same time and sounds awesome if you have a "good" main-speaker sub combo.

I listened to it on a pair of M60's and a SVS PB10 sub.
