loudness war is over?
new mastering proves not.
the latest albums i hear sound like they are high passed in 50 Hz.
they try to squish more "level".
no wonder new albums sound like **** on big speakers.
here some "nice" examples:
i'm pretty sure it will be a great OS.
it continues the microsoft tradition:
95 - ****
98 - very good
ME - total crap
XP - great
VISTA - utter ****
7 - the best OS out there
8 - load of wanna be touch thingy bull **** and maggot crap
10 - probably will be the best ever
each OT has different frequency response.
if the low response is a bit on the short side than the original response for the specific circuit the amp will sound fizzy.
why ? because it will have the same high response but without the low response needed for the full sound.
as for lead free...
i contribute it more to the inferior transformers.
i doubt lead free solder will effect the sound in a noticeable level.
ENGL amps are pure PCB and are reliable tone monsters.
the more i do DIY electronics i tend to find the whole components/solder type myths to be untrue.
i think a good...
in the video the reissue sounds more fizzy with less balls.
i found the same thing with the jcm800 reissue they sound fizzy.
they just don't growl like the old ones.
might be tubes but i guess this is more related to a cheaper OT.
i took no chances and built meself a 2204 replica and it sure...
the jubilee can do one thing damn good.
so if you are into high gain and use no pedals the jubille is for you.
if you use pedals the JCM800 is much more versatile.
also when you crank it to 11, it can make high gain sound that will peel the paint of your walls.
if it was me i would take...
dude for 90$ you get a a proper active pa speaker that you can use as main speaker.
then use it's line out output to daisy chain your small monitor to it.
90$!!!! that's dirt cheap.
not that old but when i was young we would kill for this price for an active pa speaker...
there should be no problem hooking up another speaker.
you got to check the amplifier impedance tolerance and make sure the other speaker has the same impedance as the first one.
for example if both of them are 8 ohms, connected together in parallel will yield you 4 ohm. most solid state...
