David G. elaborates:
Some AFFZ reactionsDavid G.:
I like it thus far, although I'm listening exclusively to the stereo version (which sounds like a knock-down of the surround tapes). Pretty spiffy. "Chunga Basement" is to die for. Nitpick: Venusian Time Bandits sounds like it might lose a bit in stereo, as I can barely hear the lead guitar track. "Wild Love" is swimming in 'verb.
Quaudiophiliac did not include any tracks from [Apostrophe/Over-nite Sensation/Roxy and Elsewhere]--which I took as a very good sign. They would have been obvious inclusions *unless* they're planning to release ONS and A' as such.
Speaking of the QuAUDIOPHILIAc DTS mix, does anyone else notice that the bass signal was not rolled off to the subwoofer. There appears to be no subwoofer signal for the whole DVD. I discovered this as my auto-on subwoofer never powers up during playing this DVD.
