    Emerson Lake and Palmer

    I still love my ELP and Moody Blues. Heck, if ELP got Hendrix on board as rumored, they would have been easily the best group ever.

    Name one Tull Album

    Aqualung. You shouldn't dismiss it just because it's common. It's "common" for a damn good reason. I think it's one of the best if not the best albums Tull put out.

    Curve R.I.P.

    I like Curve but they're no PJ Harvey. PJ is many levels above Curve.

    I just bought a cd for $7 worth $99 on amazon

    zowie, you are correct, supply and demand is also a huge factor. I didn't want to leave my post saying the shills are the sole purpose of higher prices but I was disrupted. Again like you said, if the cd gets a good plug in a publication that too can also spike the price up a lot, but these...

    Doors Sound Very Different on Vinyl

    They remaster the cd's with alot of channel seperation to satisfy the anal retentive "stereo" buffs who only say a record is stereo when there is noticeable seperation. I appologize to the "anal retentive stereo buffs" out there.

    How do you store your cd´s??

    My vintage Napa Valley 200 CD carousel I got at Goodwill for $6. I don't think I have ever owned more than 200 CD's at any given time so it works out well.

    Lark's Tongues in Aspic What's up with this HDCD? Did they stop producing them cause I just check'd CD Universe and others and they don't have it any longer. I bought mine about 7 months back at Circuit City and come to think of it I haven't seen it there either.

    The Doors

    Hi eyeteeth, Thanks for your info and thoughts about this box set. I'll keep my eyes out for it on my rounds doing end of year shopping though I'll probably wind up buying it online cause I have rotten luck finding something I want on the spot at the brick and mortars.

    The Doors

    I was thinking about getting their Complete Studio Recordings box set as a way to get a better sound than the older releases. Anyone know if they will be releasing their first 4 albums remastered? If you have this box set let me know what you think of it.

    You have the jist of it. I don't think a closed type headphone can produce any meaningfull soundstage though. Or can they?

    U2's New Album

    Vertigo is a great tune. I'm not sure an entire CD with similar "vertigo" tunes would be in line of anything U2 has put out. If Eno was part of the team then you know there will be variations of musical style on the CD. Achtung Baby was my last U2 purchase back in the early 90's. Eno and Bono...

    First Real Headphones for College Student, advice please

    You didn't tell us what format you'll be listening to. If you want it for MP3's or the other portable digital formats, the SD280pro's are out of the question cause they are very accurate reproducers.

    So i want to buy the Sennheiser 280Pro's...

    I bought my 280pro's cause I listen at home, with a pretty good source(NAD T532) and a pretty good receiver(Nakamichi Receiver 3) as my amp. I am thrilled with it's performance so far. Yes, the CD's and LP's that I own that are not as well recorded aren't as enjoyable to listen to, but since...

    speaker cables

    You don't need expensive name brand wire. Buy 10-14 Gauge speaker wire from Home Depot or Radio Shack and get some solderless twist on connectors and you'll be all set.

    For all the burn-in skeptics

    We all know that regular good quality semi-audiophile home audio speakers need a certain amount of break-in time so headphones should benifit in the same way. I remember when I first bought my Monitor Audio B2's they sounded OK but with the recommended break-in period that really started to...

    do others feel the current prices of cd's are too expensive?

    I think new CD's at $15+ a pop is too damn expensive. I don't care about it being the same price as when CD's first appeared or not. Everybody nowadays has a cd player and it has become a commodity. New CD's should be selling for no more than $8 a pop. Now, I have dusted off my old record...

    Pink Floyd.... wow just wow....

    If you want to get a real grasp of the birth of Pink Floyd and the subsequent re-birth I suggest "Relics". It is a best of, sort of, of their early work. It is the only "best of" Pink Floyd I would get. I have it in my collection as well. Welcome Pink Floyd newbies.

    The Roots - *The Tipping Point*

    I've got Do You Want More!?!?. Its the one and only Roots cd I own. Its very good and probably I dare to say their best. I won't chance buying any other Roots cd's anytime soon cause It'll probably pale in comparison.
