It does, so I'd pop them in once, rip them to the hard drive, and then it's back into the box. I guess technically that means I have one. I just never use it.

I pretty much only listen to CDs on my computer. I guess my car has a CD player, but I like my local independent station.

I went through a number of years where I'd rip it to my computer and never use the CDs, but I've gone through a "rediscovery of CD sound" phase, and try to listen to the CDs any time I'm listening to an album at home near my computer.

If you changed just one letter in this, you'd have a title for a Pleba fan fiction.

Yous guyz doing the stereo remasters or mono? Or are you going nuts and doing both? Or neither? Or something else completely?
Can you provide a link to this alleged pre-order page? I'm not kidding when I tell you that following the links on BestBuy.com let me to a set (unaccompanied by a picture, of course) which was going for something like $698. That's not right, but I can't find anything else. Holla?

And I will be getting the mono set, if I can somehow scrape together the bread. Picking up Sgt. P's and everything after it individually. And eventually.

It's probably more for convenience's sake, for me. I don't want to carry around a ton of CDs (that was the point of getting an iPod), and when I'm at home, I generally play records instead.


Is anyone else slightly annoyed that the mono versions aren't being released individually? I wish I didn't have to get the entire box to go that route.

Those clips.

September is bankruptcy month for me but once I've cleared tuition/credit card bill from book-buying this will certainly be my first big purchase. A new bed can wait.

I don't want to break any hearts, but the Revolver stereo job sounds...well, not really too much different from what I already know. And REALLY similar to some of the better fan-made bootleg mixes. Hm. One regular-ass speakers and at 320, it's pretty much...crisper. That's all. Definitely a step up, but this isn't like seeing in color, for the first time.

...Sounding a lot better, after the first two or three songs. Still primarly crisper, but also almost three-dimensional, at times. Interesting. A real fullness of sound. "Herr Doktor Robert" sounds pretty baller.

No, I'm not.

If it's available in both versions, getting it in mono is asinine.

I'm going to handle the transcript of this IYS/Laz discussion, if they had a discussion in an alternate universe.

Laz "I'm going with Stereo"

IYS "Really? I'm surprised at that. How come you feel that way?"

Laz "I just feel that if it's available in both versions, it makes the most sense to not get it in mono"

FAIL. The first "mono" should be "stereo".

I got two words for you: Learn to fucking type.
