The Turn Up Your Volume Test

Who’s Next


Yet another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

Now if you like to play records at 70 db, little of the following discussion will make much sense. There are some dumb ideas floating out there in Audiophile land, but playing music at quiet levels surely has to be one of the dumbest.

Product Detail


You Want to Turn The Volume DOWN? Are You Out of Your Mind?

Anybody who plays a record like Who's Next at moderate levels should be taken out and hosed down. How do you think Townsend went deaf, by playing his music too softly? He played his music LOUD because that's the way he wanted you to hear it. Moon beats the hell out of his drums because he likes the sound of drums beaten HARD. If you don't have the stereo to play this record right, don't make excuses and DON'T make up bizarre theories about volume levels in the home. You're not fooling anybody with those kinds of rationalizations. If your speaker distorts that's your problem, pal. Don't lay that trip on me.

Some of us have done our homework and take pride in what we've managed to accomplish. We've been challenging ourselves and our systems with records like Who's Next and Aqualung for thirty years. We know how good these records can sound on systems that have what it takes to play them. If you're not going to turn up the volume, don't waste your money on a good Track pressing. Buy the Classic; at 70 db it will probably sound good enough for you. Spend the money you save on wine and cigars.
