Being an ABB missionary down here and following the "The 1st Epistle of TopDroog, to his brother rfunez, of the House of Honduras" I just have received the Beacon DVD and after seeing just a few songs I think Derek's guitar sound is too low, for example I can hear more clearly the rythmic Warren's guitar parts in Dreams than the Derek's solos especially the 2nd part solo and the main guitar work in this song is played by him (Derek)!.

I am not using 5.1 or any other special sound effects and my tv and dvd player are ordinary stereo equipment, also the Live at Great Woods DVD works fine in it.

Has been this issue noted before or is just my imagination?, if this is how the dvd was originally mixed I think it sucks, I want more Derek sound!! By the way, I noted Warren mixed this dvd sound.

I've never had that problem with it. Try adjusting your sound if you can. I have heard other people complain one way or the other, but I think it's more related to the equipment you're listening on than the DVD itself.

Warren also co-produced the new album. I hope you're not accusing him of screwing with the mix like that.

I have to agree with you Marley. No problem with mine.

Most likey the dvd is sending 5.1 and you have only
the stereo amplified.

sometimes i put on a cd and think it sounds terrible
until I remember the dvd is in dolby mode from the
last movie I watched.

Peace
John

Yes, my DVD has an unbalanced mix, unless I switch it to 2.0 stereo mix. - I did think during "Dreams" that Derek's guitar sounded a little quiet, compared to the rest of the band, even on the stereo mix, but I might be wrong...

Thank you guys, I am happy now. The combination that worked for me was 2.0 stereo 2 channels in the DVD and Surround in the TV, any other combination outputs a terrible sound in my equipment.

I really haven't delved into the home theater / surround sound / electronically altered signal world. Have it on my new amp and don't use any of that functionality. Philisophically don't like it. I am pure old school.... L&R outputs / yes 4 speakers can be nice in some applications, but not needed / NO Dolby (Hate it, should be illegal).... pure output to multi band equalizer, then calibrate that to my ears for each recording played. Adjustments can wildly vary, old stuff vs new, etc. Audience recordings always need tweaked. I tend to bring up highs and lows on old stuff. So I tend to buy simple equipment. Don't want multi disc changers. Don't want 43 buttons and settings on the front on amps. Want KNOBS not buttons. Samd with DVD, give me a straight output and I'll deal with it. Really, 10-20 year old equipment suits me better than the new bells and whistles stuff. I think people get lazy with the sound with the new cr@p, let the machine think for them. Anyone without an equalizer is only using 30% of their systems sound potential. And I don't see any middle or center channel settings on my gear....

Bird, I am with you in this one. Last year I replaced my Pioneer 6-disc magazine cd player by a 300 +1 CD jukebox, it sounds horrible, in the seventies I used to have an equalizer that I don't have now but want to.

This year I decided to replace all my stuff with a single or 5 cd changer, a decent amp and an equalizer but with all that home theater, 5.1, and other crap I see any time I search for to buy, I feel unsure about what I want and had to pospone my project. This has been ocurring me month after month, so I think I have to spend a week researching what I have to buy a thing in the seventies I spent just a couple of hours to do.

Well, I like Hot Rods and trucks without power windows also, so I am different. I search for low option old cars. Less the better. So I always buy the green no option ones nobody wants. Weird. I also think on gear with the electronics from 1980 up, (and a bunch of older also) the real variable is speakers and equalizer, over all else. CD's all play good.... Amps all do good, variable is power. I will have to upgrade to full digital linkage I guess ultimately.... dump the analog connections, but I really don't care. I can get better sound out of my cobbled togethor system of 8 different brands, .... (1973 to about 1994 vintage) as some of the scary systems out there now.
