Good thread. I've actually been waiting all day because I can't decide how my first listen should be.

good question........right now i'm listening on headphones, but i've also blasted it. first blast it, then do headphones so you can hear more individual sounds after getting the gist of the album

I listened to it with my B&O headphones, and played home speakers as well to fill out the lower end.. so you can pick out the details, as well as feel the bass.

Speaker. Definitely. That's what I did. I listened to them the first time with the speakers, and now I am using headphones.

I'm listening through headphones because out of everything I own, it produces the best sound quality. I love that feeling of having a masterpiece right in my ear.

I used phones b/c the comp I have currently has some cheap excuse for a soundcard and no speakers right now. But then I listened to it loud at a friend's apartment w/ her decent system and it was better.

You definitely need to listen to LAPOE on headphones. That way, you can catch all the many intricacies of the song. I've found that ABOY and COBL sound better when blasted through the hi fi.

I am giving the whole album a listen through on my headphones. The songs sound even more amazing with headphones. You can really grasp all the details that way, as it is a complex sounding album, for me at least.

i liked it decently first time through on speakers. headphones in the dark blew me away. I was singing along to songs really loudly i'd only heard once! oh it was lovely.
