  1. Awww yeah. Latest tug thread is looking good. The only thing that "has toggles in my mind" is why aren't there more tug threads?
  2. I probably should have waited for this.
  3. I had to go to another site to get the info. I ended up getting it, but I can't help but think it's going to be a disappointment. I hope I'm wrong and this was transferred and cut at Abbey Road (or a similarly respected mastering/cutting house) and sounds better than it ever has!
  4. I disagree that the original sounds bad. It's not ideal, but it's not bad. I like the idea of this, but udiscover is terrible, and no mention of cutting source or mastering, or content of the multiple cd and DVD sets makes me cautious.
  5. There are minimal vocals in the songs, but listening this morning on my way to work, I didn't think there wasn't enough vocals. I guess I'm just getting used to it.
  6. That's funny because I was thinking the exact same thing as I was listening through the songs. Not looking to fundamentally change what they are doing with verse chorus verse vocals or anything, either. Hopefully they experiment a little more with vocals in the future. I am really enjoying this album.
  7. I listened to the new album a couple of times this weekend and I like it a lot, but the minimal vocals hold it back in a big way for me. The fact that I'm still looking to buy the LP is a testament to how good the music is, though.
  8. New to Elder, but liking what I'm hearing on this new album. Gonna give it a full listen and decide if I need the LP.
  9. What did you check the VTF with? Too light of VTF will cause the sound to be thin and overly trebly, which may be what you are hearing. That coupled with what are saying is already a bright sounding system would be a problem.
  10. Short answer: As you suggested, you'll need to do your homework.
  11. Dave's the worst. I'd take Creed and Nickelback COMBINED before I chose that honking goose. Enjoy your favorite band, DMB.
  12. Oh really? Well, answer me this, oh ye of the uncommon folk. If you could only listen to one of the following two bands for the rest of your life, which would you choose, Dave Matthews Band or Creed?
  13. AI recommended leaving it on all the time? I'm going to have to check my manual... interesting. I do think I need to get some new tubes, but I do NOT want to have to deal with "tube sound" and be constantly wondering if another kind of tube would be better. It will drive me crazy. I like to tweak and experiment, but only a little. Too much and I never feel satisfied because I'm never sure if it's "right".
  14. Guys, guys, guys... This is a Puddle Of Mudd thread. Can we please get back to discussing Puddle Of Mudd?
