I have to admit to a slight hang up on introducing any other tubes to the playback chain which might influence the reproduction of the originally recorded tube amp sonics.

Really ... it's something that I'm concerned with.



If my fav band, say Fu Manchu or Monster Magnet, goes to the clinical lengths necessary to play throught the rarest and most sought after tube cabinets on the planet ...

Then am I morally in the right for sending that same production through yet more tubes?

Or am I better off sending it through a decent solid state head amp/DAC rig so as to most accurately enjoy the originally recorded bliss?



It really is funny because it really does vex me at times ...

Anyway ...

I'm an open book and have no standards in place.

Which means I'll forever be spending money on both solid state and tube derived gear for my remaining 40 to 50 years here.



Here's some pr0n in parting.

My fav cabinet by far:

...

Those are some of the sickest tube driven guitar amps ever created.

Dinosaur Jr., Neil Young, Soundgarden, Fu Manchu, PJ Harvey and a gazillion others will back me up on it ...

Tonight I listened to the soundtrack for The Dark Knight, and it was perhaps the best match I have heard yet for the JVC. I only intended to listen to a few tracks, but an hour later found myself in a some sort of catatonic, REM-cycle state on the couch, still listening away. I do not believe I have ever been reduced to this magnitude of relaxation before. Ever.

Similar to Joel's experiences with bass that could be felt internally, I was feeling vibration, rhythm, and decay within my shoulders and chest. The music might as well have been beating in place of my heart.

I picked up this soundtrack after seeing the movie and I second your opinion. It is fantastic. Any other Soundtrack recommendations?
