Quote from: 71 dB on May 02, 2024, 01:46:09 AMFor me not liking later TD would be a limitation rather than something to be proud of. I guess I am very lucky to be able to enjoy all of their music. I just don't expect musicians to make their early albums over and over again.
It's neither pride, luck or expectations. It's a simple question of taste. Everyone differs. Sorry for being so limited.

I bought a colour Kobo.  Do I need it?  Absolutely not!  But wow finally one of the big three has released a color eink reader.  Here it is compared to an older Kobo.

You might find some good 1970s concerts from the In Search Of Hades box set on archive.org 8).

My taste is not avoid of limitations either, but there is very little Tangerine Dream I don't "care about". Many fans of early TD say they lost interest around Tyger (I like Tyger, in fact "Alchemy of the Heart" is one of my favorite songs of TD), but the style of their music has changes many many times since the mid 80s. If you don't like Rockoon, maybe you like Jeanne D'Arc. If you don't like Optical Race, maybe you'll like Quantum Gate.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

For me it simply is difficult to understand people who like TD up to early 80s, but NOTHING after that. Really? Is it more about attitude than actual taste?

Do you like the Pink Years albums @71 dB ? I enjoy that sort of experimentalism, also Edgar's strange remixes.

I have to intervene, this is way too strongly worded, and this is the second time here.  Please don't disparage others for not sharing your taste.

Sure! As I mentioned, there is very little music by them I don't care about.  :)

Pohjolas Daughter

A new CD of Blondie's Parallel Lines.  A classic from 1978.  This one has some bonus tracks too (most of them from concerts).

Too many to list since my brief absence from the forum over the past month or so, but I just bought these three sets (via Amazon US and ImportCDs on eBay):
