My first complaint is a lack of deep bass...40Hz and below which I hear from many tracks in my collection. This is only a guess...I like low bass that stresses my sub.
I can recommend this CD because the SQ is very good, obviously, but it isn't what gets me twisted and chilled.
Thanks for pointing this out. The first version of the CD was heavy on the bass. On some systems this bass was causing distortion and rumbled the sub, so I needed to find a balance making it bassy but not distorted, which is a challenge. In other words, you should be able to enjoy the bass without distortion even if you boost the bass in an SUV system, or in a club. Now, if you have a sub at home, you can always just switch it to 30Hz and it will do the trick.
On track 3, Some Romance, it can sound a little light on the bass, but actually if you boost it to 30, other frequencies start to appear. I checked it on the HD 800 and they definitely boost at the 30 and the 20Hz, which is a nice experience.
I'm glad you like the CD. Thanks for posting your thoughts about it.
