Following a change in how Billboard counts sales in 2009, it re-entered the chart and has since appeared for over 900 weeks. I did notice some instrument placement between speakers, not only across the front speakers but also between front and rear speakers and across rear speakers. However, the surround imaging is highly unstable as you might expect from any matrix decoding process and will result in interesting anomalies and sudden shifts of instrument positioning. Was this review helpful to you? Awesome the amount of outstanding help I have received. The Great Gig In The Sky 4:44 05. The band continued to release a number of increasingly dark and moody conceptual albums well into the early 1980s, but in my opinion never quite matched the genius of this album although I am sure some fans would strongly disagree with me. I kept checking and rechecking my system to confirm that I was indeed listening in stereo and all the music came from the two front speakers.
With estimated sales of more than 45 million, it is Pink Floyd's bestselling album and one of the bestselling worldwide. This is Pink Floyd at its collective finest, with everyone contributing. By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their trippiest instrumental sections, Pink Floyd inadvertently designed their commercial breakthrough with Dark Side of the Moon.

Originally released on 1 March 1973, on the label Harvest, it built on ideas explored in the band's earlier recordings and live shows, but departs from instrumental thematic by founding member Syd Barrett. The album was celebrating a total of 1,350 weeks on The Billboard 200 and Top Pop Catalog charts in Billboard magazine when Capitol Records released the 30th anniversary edition in 2003. There is no compression, no conversion artefacts, just pure analogue music. A concept album, its themes explore conflict, greed, time, and mental illness, the latter partly inspired by the deteriorating health of founding member Syd Barrett, who left in 1968. All the new equipment is expected to be in house next week. I initially expected that most of the versions would be somewhat similar and any differences to be fairly subtle and hard to spot, so imagine my surprise when I discovered each version has a very unique sonic character. When I turned up the volume, it sounded better, but also somewhat artificial.
Btw based on what I have read elsewhere some older receivers cannot decode the 640 version so I am sure that is why the 448 version was also included. Never Forget - this is a hallowed day and should be treated with the utmost respect. My main interest is in a very high quality 'multi-channel' playback. The performance is overshadowed by tape saturation, unfortunately. Roger Waters wrote a series of songs about mundane, everyday details which aren't that impressive by themselves, but when given the sonic backdrop of Floyd's slow, atmospheric soundscapes and carefully placed sound effects, they achieve an emotional resonance.
Although they never really reached the mass and enduring popularity of the Beatles, and did not last as long nor released as many albums as the Rolling Stones, there is an aura of cult coolness about them, plus a reputation for the best multimedia concerts in the 1970s that cements their status as cultural icons amongst their many fanatic fans. First thank you all for your help. This complex, often psychedelic music works very well because Pink Floyd doesn't rush anything; the songs are mainly slow to mid-tempo, with attention paid throughout to musical texture and mood. Known for its complex instrumental textures, the album firmly established Pink Floyd as one of the most innovative bands in rock history. Imaging seems sharper and more well defined on this version, although the soundstage was relatively flat and two-dimensional.
Any Colour You Like 3:25 08. Btw based on what I have read elsewhere some older receivers cannot decode the 640 version so I am sure that is why the 448 version was also included. Originally Posted by donutfan I enjoy the mix on the quad version, mixed by Alan Parsons, better than the Guthrie mix which I feel is too polite most of time. . Any information avaialble on The Wall? According to these two sources really the same source , the Parsons mix will be included in hi-rez on the Blu Ray disc. Why they didn't do the right thing and release all of the discs in at least hi-rez 2 channel is just another symptom of a failed industry repeatedly attempting to sell the same thing 5 times over. That is because the 640kbps, and the 448kbps version, are both Dolby Digital which is a lossy format.
But what gives the album true power is the subtly textured music, which evolves from ponderous, neo-psychedelic art rock to jazz fusion and blues-rock before turning back to psychedelia. My recollection could be faulty as I never put any credence in it anyway. It is difficult, if not impossible to get past these distractions and listen to the music. Lastly, the bootleg dts 5. Eventually the band broke up but reformed in the late 1980s minus their de facto leader Roger Waters, who has never quite forgiven his fellow band members ever since although lately there are signs that a reconciliation may yet be possible. The bass sounded very balanced and natural, with additional low frequency extensions that were reproduced faithfully by the subwoofer. This sounds extremely muffled, dulled, blunt, and lacked detail or dynamics.
But I wasn't able, to say, whether it was a good recording. This is a serious question. The phantom rear imaging on this has to be heard to be believed - I could have sworn I had engaged surround processing by mistake and the rear channels must have been active! To all those families who suffered a loss as well as to all of the soldiers that defend our freedoms daily - you have my respect and gratitude, I enjoy the mix on the quad version, mixed by Alan Parsons, better than the Guthrie mix which I feel is too polite most of time. On The Run 3:33 03. That is because the 640kbps, and the 448kbps version, are both Dolby Digital which is a lossy format. How lucky we all are to hear this legendary studio recording realize its full potential. I must say, though, I do much prefer the 4.
That is because the 640kbps, and the 448kbps version, are both Dolby Digital which is a lossy format. This is probably Pink Floyd's best-known work, and it's an excellent place to start if you're new to the band. I appreciate all of the help. In any event, please post your impressions. I am looking forward to sitting in the sweet spot and enjoy immensely - any suggestions?? Toa ll enjoy your day again thank you for all of your input. There seemed to be a lot of bass, but it sounded somewhat boomy and ponderous. The instruments are much better defined as they have been separated across more speakers, and I heard additional detail and instruments compared to the other versions.
