That might occur due to your receivers equalization settings, perhaps you have it set to an artificial "surround sound" effect. Ask around and when and if you come across a friend, relative, co-worker, etc. who owns SACD equipment, ask them perhaps for a demo at their house and see if you don't hear...

lol ... I can't see Steve breaking his back to do the entire album on tour night after night ... especially my personal fave, "The Riddle." I think an SACD, DVD-Audio, or even a double redbook CD with bonus outtakes, demos, stories, photos) would be much easier and more fun for both Stevie and his f...

Plans or ideas for Passion And Warfare's 20th Anniversary?

What do you think? Sure, the CD from 1990 still looks and sounds great on it's own and for only $10, it's the best $10 you could ever spend, but ... What if ... just what if Passion And Warfare could be ... oh, let's say enhanced in time for it's 20th birthday, hmm? Cast your vote and hope that Stev...

Yes, better sound quality and in most cases, the ability to hear the music via a 5.1 surround sound home theater speaker system. This allows for better separation of the instruments/vocals vs. having everything crammed into a normal 2-speaker stereo setup. It almost perfectly represents the experien...

It's only stereo I'm afraid. With headphones, however, you can hear the difference and it's a pretty good recording. Keep an eye on eBay for a copy like I did, or if you have extra big moola, look on Amazon. And if you haven't already, buy Strange Beautiful Music - it's multichannel and amazing! Che...

STEVE VAI on SACD or DVD-A?

Hi everyone, As a collector of Super Audio CD's and DVD-Audio discs, including two SACD's by Joe Satriani ( Strange Beautiful Music, Engines Of Creation ) I thought it would be worth inquiring to see if Steve and co. have any plans for an SACD release anytime in the near future, particularly with th...

Hi everyone, After purchasing my brand new copy from my local store yesterday, I was surprised to find many, deep scratches on the inside of the case near the DVD, possibly from the fingernails of eager people who were trying to pull the DVD out of the case. For the record, the DVD was sealed in pla...

Visual Sound Theories DVD

Hi everyone,

I just purchased the DVD but haven't watched it yet. For those of you who have watched it, however, what are your opinions?

Thanks in advance for your input!
