    DNA is right.... As a sophomore in college I bought my first Boston LP at State Discount in East Lansing, MI. It had just come out. A hand-written note over the sales bin offered this optimism: "Better 'n Aerosmith".

    I'd love to hear a MFSL version!

    Recently I bought the DSL DL from Acoustic Sounds. Ostensibly from the OOP Sony SACD. It sounds better than any other copy I've heard. Hard to believe Tom Scholz recorded this, with Brad Delp, in his 1975 apartment basement!

    Well , he WAS (still is...too!) an MIT Graduate who worked in Polaroid and he recorded the main LP , except for the last song (and you can hear the difference), on a 12 track (correct me if I'm wrong) , which had a LOT of space in the tape for the signal...he also had done those songs several times before and was working comfortably IN HIS BASEMENT , not in a studio, where time is money... It really is a pity that he didn't do anything else with that setup cause the rest of the LPs don't sound nearly as good (Third Stage being the biggest offender, with the early Rockmans and fake drums...).
    And of course there was the VOICE, Mr, Brad Delp (RIP), who's do overdubd without even practicing them and they'd be perfect...what a voice!

    As it is, it decodes fairly well on DPL II..

    And I used to have the SACD...I thought it was BAD (cutoff at 22K-a MAJOR sin with this kind of sound), I even SOLD it!!!

    Nice background write up! At my age (61), 22 kHz is of no consequence. Wish it were! If I had a dog listening with me, maybe... ;-)

    I lived in the Boston area for a bit, and know a lady who was CTO of Polaroid back in the day. Quite a company...ahead of its time. I didn't know TS worked there.

    Thanks for the info,
    Steve

    Miles Davis - Big Fun
    Double CD (2000, remaster, bonus tracks)

    I recently found some adjustments on my Yamaha RX-V375, specific to PL II Music mode, to widen and deepen the sound field beyond factory default.
    I'm getting some startlingly satisfying results.

    Disc 2, track 1, Go Ahead John
    About six minutes in, when young red-hot 1969 John McLaughlin solos, the panning drums and electric guitar seem to buzz around the whole room.
    (Jack DeJohnette on drums.
    Saw him in June, age 75, with the two Johns, Scofield and Medeski, plenty of fire!)

    Just added this to my collection.
    Lots of great unreleased material from the In A Silent Way / Bitches Brew era.

    Recollections has dueling electric pianos spread across the stage, composer Joe Zawinul left, Chick Corea right.
    On other tracks, sprinklings of bass clarinet, tamboura, sitar, world percussion...


    Cast your dancin' spell my way, I promise to go under it...

    Care to share your PLII settings, please?

    [MENU] Setup > Sound > DSP Parameter

    From the Yamaha RX-V375 manual:

    Panorama

    Enables/disables the broadening effect of the front sound field.
    When this function is enabled, you can wrap front right/left channel sounds around the field and generate a spacious sound field in combination with the surround sound field.
    This setting is effective when “PLII Music” is selected.

    Default Off
    Set to On

    Center Width
    Adjusts the broadening effect of the center sound field.
    Higher to enhance the broadening effect, and lower to reduce it (closer to center).
    This setting is effective when “PLII Music” is selected.

    Default 3
    Set to 7 (max)

    Dimension
    Configures the audio output settings.
    Adjusts the difference in level between the front and surround sound fields.
    Higher to strengthen the front sound field and lower to strengthen the surround sound field.
    This setting is effective when “PLII Music” is selected.

    Default 0
    Set to 3 (max)

    Queen
    "Jazz"
    Japanese SACD-SHM

    I bought the LP when it came out and I think it's one of the top five from their catalogue-and my all time favorite.....I have now TWO LPs, one from back in the day and one bought a few years back (a cutout) WITH the poster..of course (along with the tour de force!)!

    a LOT of stuff in the rears... i'm sure it's psychoacoustics, but it sounds GREAT!!!

    Don't ask me why I got it, since I am NOT a fan of SACDs, but ...I FELT LIKE IT..

    and I'm really glad I got it!!!

    Just picked up Porcupine Tree Sky Moves Sideways 2x cd package. Holy smokes outstanding sound and music. Listening now in PLII M. Sound is incredible. Works nicely with such a textured album.

    Traffic - 5 Classic Albums Box Set - PLII M 5.0
    In chronological order.
    .
    The matrix really spreads grand piano, vocals and percussion.
    Panning effects benefit from extra depth of the sound field, more than strictly ambience.

    When Glad came on (after 2 cups of coffee with sunlight streaming in) I was out of my chair dancing.

    By Low Spark, semi-discrete bass C & R, at Shootout, Rebop's hand drum hits spark from back corners.
