    Not ringing any bells. Will have to look into this one

    I love Floyd, I listened to The Wall hundreds of times while I did my math in college...and my English...and my History...and my Computer Science. It was the only thing I could listen to that kept me going without distracting me.

    The Waters I've listened to has been great.

    Hi Humboldt

    You might take a look here for a description of the CD.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amused_to_Death

    Its recorded in Q Sound which can be quite interesting to say the least with a well set up system.

    Hope you find it worthwhile.

    Bonnie Raitt: Fundamental

    Joe Henry: Amor

    ---

    As an aside, while listening to Bonnie i noticed a sharpness to her tone which i had not experienced prior & as i listened more intently to her i also noticed that same sharpness to the sound of the accompanying instruments which got me wondering why?

    Thinking back i remembered upgrading my digital cable between my player & DAC to a silver 75ohm digital cable which had improved the clarity of the sound which to these old ears was a plus that i was enjoying and focusing on, as new sounds made themselves known on CD after CD.

    I found my old digital cable and placed it back into my system. Wow! Bonnie was back as was the whole musical spectrum. A more rounded sound. A more accurate rounder toned presentation of both voice and instruments.

    The clarity issue was not evident to me. I switched the two cables several times and yes the silver cable did without doubt present more information but also no doubt it came at the expense of the tone of both voice and instruments. I had been so busy fixating on the new information i had failed to notice the loss of tone presented.

    Now back with my old cable i am a much happier camper. Lesson learned, sometimes we are so busy looking at the trees we fail to notice the forest.

    Joni Mitchell: Court & Spark
    ===

    Well here i am with no NHL Hockey other than that BS All Star Game which i wouldn't watch if they paid me & with time on my hands i once again dove into fiddling with my stereo system. Namely speaker placement.

    I went to the Rule of Thirds which is always successful & with measuring tape in hand proceeded to tweak my speakers for something to do.

    For those that may have some interest the Rule of Thirds it is as follows.

    (Caution...Before doing anything ensure you SHUT OFF all of your systems so no damage is done if something pops out of place)

    1: Measure room length & width

    2: Break them down into thirds for length & width

    3: Using the Center of your Tweeter or Midrange Adjust your speakers to the 1/3 position into the room.

    (Example if you have a room 12 ft. wide convert to inches, 144 in this case and then divide by 1/3rd. or 48" & Move your speakers measured at the front of the tweeter 48 inches into the room from the sidewall.

    Using your length measurements using the same formula do the same from the front wall, again using the front of the speaker to measure.)

    4: Using the measured distance from the space between the tweeters from one another measure from them to your listening chair where your head would be in the seated position.

    5: While seated look at your speaker inner sidewalls and toe them in till the sidewalls are just visible from your normal seated position and move your chair accordingly using step 4's measurments.

    6: Once you've accomplished step 5 get your measuring tape out once again and measure your speaker corners to make sure they are precisely the same measurements from sidewalls and front walls.

    7: Turn your system back on and allow it to warm up for 15 minutes or so then sit your ass down and play some familiar tunes to see what improvements you have wrought.

    8: Hopefully you'll be enjoying a much improved sound.
