every time I go there I become convinced that everything I listen to must sound like shit (good case in point, the new genesis remaster/remixes, which they hate almost uniformally, but which I thought sounded pretty good). on the other hand, I've learned a lot about mastering and compression there after getting interested in the issue when Nick brought it up in that flaming lips article.

but going there can really dampen your listening experience.

It IS alarming, isn't it? I stumbled onto those forums when looking for more detailed information about James Brown's jumbled back catalog (there are some stellar threads on there regarding this) but I can't read it regularly or I'll be forced to either 1) dump a ton of stuff and wait for a reissue or 2) buy reissues of things that sound fine to me. I choose to do neither by not frequenting that forum much!

It's like going to some of the hi-end audio equipment forums, it'll make you feel like crap for daring to stray from original Edison cylinders. Or tube amps. Or separates. Etc.

Mr. Odd, Monday, 28 May 2007 14:05 (ten years ago) Permalink

Useful but a lot of posts to wade through and very heavily classic-rock biased. And it is the 99+ percentile of 'persnickety audiophiles', so keep that in mind as you read -- those of us mortals with standard-issue audio gear probably won't be able to tell the difference between remaster A and remaster B.

I still kind of like that forum but man are they quick to remove posts that question the integrity of the host. Apparently several years ago he auctioned off CDRs of masters he did of All Things Must Pass among other things; those are all over the internet these days. I've asked about this once or twice and my questions vanish within seconds. Hunting around on the internet turned up more info about it.

Maybe C for the occasional educational discussion about different editions, but ultimately a D for the thin skinned moderating crew. That ultimately taints most of the major debates because posters aren't allowed to criticize anything Hoffman was involved in - and he has a sizeable discography that includes some of the most sought-after and expensive pressings out there.

Bands enjoyed by smart people

Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by Andersoncouncil, Yesterday at 10:35 PM.

The Rush thread got me thinking...There are certain bands that appeal to more educated, smart audiences. Rush is certainly one of them, but I'd also like to throw out a "dark horse" band. People seem to think of the Grateful Dead as a band liked by head in the cloud stoners, but in reality their fanbase I have come across is very intelligent. Most deadheads I have met have masters degrees and high-paying jobs. I work in academis, and know many haeds and former deadheads in high positions.Maybe they spent many years on the bus following them, but the great irony is that they seem to have done well for themselves. Feel free to discuss this point or ad any other bands for the intelligentsia.

My favorite thing about those forums, and I have many favorite things, is that sometimes people put their names in their signatures, then sign their posts in addition to that. Those particular forums automatically "sign" the poster's name to his/her posts right beside the timestamp. So along with the name in their actual avatar, there's the possibility of seeing a poster's name four times with every post. Like those bands with eponymous albums who also have eponymous songs on those albums. But +1.

http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/please-try-and-refrain-from-commenting-on-sound-quality-unless-you-have-your-gear-listed-in-profile.489114/

The two posts above by two new members shouldn't really be acceptable here. I've picked them at random but this is epidemic here at the SH Forums. I thought I better post this reminder about filling out your equipment profile.

We don't know what you are listening on unless you list your gear under "information" in your profile. Why does this matter? This is why. Something sounds "freakin' fantastic" and I'm going to listen to you and trust you and spend 40 bucks on it? I just have your word for it. What are you listening on? Unless I know that, how can I possibly judge if what you are saying holds any kind of water at all? A gear list doesn't solve it all (you could have a $100,000.00 system and be deaf as a post) but it's not fair to others when one comments on sound quality without giving us a clue as to what the music is being played on.

Please fill out your gear profiles or resist reviewing sound quality here. I don't care what kind of stereo you have, how much it costs, doesn't matter to me. I had a midprice system for years that I loved but if I'm listening on that to tell you what sounds fantastic or not, you have a right to know this and make allowances because my midprice system isn't telling me the full truth about sound quality so I can't tell you the truth about it.

Our readers here deserve to have this at our disposal and take it into account if your review is going to make pronouncements on sound quality. We need to take this important information into consideration.

There are about 30-40 members here who's ears I trust. Some of them have great systems but not all: At least half of them have stereo systems consisting of 1975 college dorm room level or even lower but I still trust their sound reviews. That being said, until you get to know if a person has your taste in sound quality, gear profiles are all we have to go on. The first step only, but it's an important one.

Thanks.

Not a rule, just a request. But if the moderators catch anything like the above posts, they will remove them at their discretion.

Now let the bitchfest begin.

Thread appears to have been deleted. Been spending a bunch of time on the Hoff forums recently & have been largely enjoying it - sometimes genuinely & sometimes in a "lookit the audiophile loonies" kinda way. They have pointed me to a nice reissue of Muswell Hillbillies (which I otherwise woulda ignored as I - ignorantly, I guess - tend to assume anything associated with Record Store Day is cash-grab crapola). But I gotta also check the tendencies; was listening to some stuff my daughter likes & found myself thinking "the engineering on this is terrible!" to which my sensible side said "if your dad had commented on the engineering on a Hüsker Dü record, wouldn't he have been missing the point just like you are now?" So.

It seems audiocrazy at a glance, but there totally is a point; it's a forum about sound quality and sound quality definitely varies with equipment, so yeah, I'm with brimstead. Run with the big dogs, waggle your gear about.

But I've also often wondered about a similar approach for mainstream record reviews: sure, over time you can get to 'know' a reviewer's tastes and character to an extent by reading their reviews, but I've rarely, if ever, seen anyone talk in a record review about how they use a record, when they play it, what it's for, at least outside of specialist reviews of dance music. Which would be OK if we were judging / evaluating (and buying / using) music on a purely abstracted, aesthetic level, but we're not; we're fitting music into our lives, using it for all sorts of different purposes.

it's a ridiculous board but it is helpful especially when sorting through all the vinyl reissues these days some of which are expensive and not that great, so when you hear universal praise there for, say the Dylan Mono vinyl box that does actually mean something to me...though man I though the Beatles vinyl reissues were gonna tear that place apart, I still don't know what to think.

Sound quality totally isn't an issue for me. I long ago mothballed my vinyl, CDs, turntable and CD player. The only way I listen to music now is v0 mp3s on an iPod through £100 headphones, and it all sounds great to me. My enjoyment of music is unaffected by sub-optimal sound quality.

It's a worthwhile resource for information about vinyl (or CD) pressing quality. I often find myself googling "steve hoffman + [X reissue]" when browsing stuff online or at the local record. shop. It is what it is and nothing else. Some of the language around how records sound is completely hilarious and over the top though, no doubt about that.

Also back in the day, you had to have talent, you had to know your instrument, for the most part you had to really be able to sing.

How about this one?

As a high school teacher, I can share with you without a shadow of a doubt, that most youngsters don't care about those old school acts!

notice, I did not say all, but most ... there's absolutely no doubt about it!

I've done it, I've asked them about old school acts and most of them have never even heard of them. Acts that most of us would instantly know, they haven't a clue.

For example...
Bad Company
Foghat
Grand Funk
Sly And The Family Stone
Rare Earth
Edgar Winter

Most of my students, have never even heard of these acts? Now when I let them hear a song or two, some of them may say yeah I've heard that song but I never knew who it was.

This is one of the reasons I started exposing them to Paul McCartney. I just felt they should know who the greatest songwriter is!

classic and dud... I got banned pretty quick for linking an article that denigrated the forum/Hoffman etc. On the surface, it feels like MOJO magazine BBS, with a bunch of curmudgeonly middle-aged men flossing their tech "knowledge," more concern for audio quality, x pressing of Sea Change, etc. than actual music. But it goes beyond that, there's some decent, in-depth Grateful Dead discussion, general classical and jazz talk etc. - it's useful to an extent. Judging by some posts, it's as if some people regard the site as some holy grail of music and -related information. Maybe it's just a generally less 'hip' demographic than ILX, I don't know.

i think the one thing that is really unforgivable is that he sold his own CDrs of his remaster work for All things Must Pass to the highest bidder (also, some other unreleased mastering jobs) in order to keep his site going. But he prohibits discussion or links to bootlegs on the site (actually that seems to have been loosened up quite a bit lately). I mean, he essentially personally profited off a bootlegged master and leaked that into the pirate market.

a lot of the excesses are genuinely amusing but jesus there's some depressing shit in there too -- here's the Hoff on "aspirations":

You certainly are free to enjoy my masterings on a boombox or a Pioneer receiver and some beat up BIC speakers from 1975 but to not even strive to save to get something better eventually, that's just denial. The goal is to enjoy your music on the best system you can, no matter your price range or salary bracket. If that means eating out of a few cans and skipping Starbucks on the way to work for a few months, so be it. Get it done.

here he is later, from the above linked Billion Dollar Babies thread, lamenting being told to cease and desist making those threads detailing his work on the Audio Fidelity remasters:

Eh, no big deal, I talk too much anyway. No one in charge really likes me blabbing about mastering experiences (no record company suits, legal, etc.) so maybe it's for the best.

For me it's like a stress release after a big project, to talk about it to people who might care. Otherwise it just ends cold turkey and I sometimes go into a tailspin.
