    Snood - I ordered through their website but strangely can no longer locate the specific page. The email confirmation I received links to www.monsterproducts.com and gives the following phone # and email for inquiries:

    1-855-242-2266
    store@monsterproducts.com

    Hope that helps!

    You're welcome! I only recently became aware of these myself (thanks Clint!) and have since picked up several. They are very well done.

    Thanks for bringing this back to life.

    I just ordered both the 6 String disc and Ray Charles' "Genius Loves Company" by telephone. The Ray Charles disc has gone up in price by US$5, now $14.95. They are going to honor the free shipping. The sales person said that both discs have been discontinued.

    I'll join the throng of 10's. Great mix. Great sonics. Something here for everybody. EQ don't bother me none. Even the drums wrap around in surround! 96/24, DTS-HD on my receiver.
    I love the level of community surrounding (heh heh) this disc. Mates mailing it international to fellow QQers. As for me, I got it because a QQer sent it to me at cost, years after buying two. Good stuff QQ!

    Bought it purely because it was at the top of its poll, and, boyo, I'm really glad I did. Wonderful all around - musically, performance-wise, and surround. Excellent!

    Snood has had luck contacting Monster directly. Here is information from a previous post of his within this thread:

    The email confirmation I received links to www.monsterproducts.com and gives the following phone # and email for inquiries:

    1-855-242-2266
    store@monsterproducts.com

    As you have probably found out when its out of print prices skyrocket: https://www.amazon.com/Ritenours-Str...+string+theory

    Best of luck

    Geez, back in late April of 2016 I bought a sealed copy of Monster's 6 String Theory from Amazon for $8.99 delivered!

    I agree with blue.monk's take. The music and mix are excellent, but the bass is way overdone, by about 10 dB to my ears. Cutting it with my receiver's tone control and sub adjustment makes it sound OK, but unfortunately that messes with the overall tonal balance too much. A personal remaster may be in the works :-)

    I'll give this an 8 overall. Cutting the bass with appropriate filtering will add two points.

Since some tracks feature 3 or more guitarists Iím glad the booklet lists their placement (i.e. Lee panned left, Steve panned right, etc) although, frustratingly, the track sequence is out of order and 2 pieces are omitted. My only real beef with this disc is the EQ. Although at times the treble can be a bit bright (most annoyingly on hi-hat, harmonica) itís the boosted bass that bothers me most. I find it out of balance and quite fatiguing at higher volumes. A shame, since itís a very well recorded disc and has potential to be an absolute stunner sound wise. An 8 for me.
