For all you SDA freaks out there, I just picked up No Doubt's "Singles" CD that was recently released.

All I can say is, "WOW!!!!"

Tracks 2,3, & 6 are the cat's meow! If you love Gwen's pure voice then check out track 2 "It's My Life."

Track 3 "Hey Baby Hey" has some serious SDA effects that'll make ya slap ya momma! The bass is pretty deep and cleanin this track as well. My 1C's pushed with Carver 1.0t doesn't seem to quite have the nuts for that last octave. I have TFM-42 on the way that sould hopefully cure a lot of that. :cool:

Track 6 "Hella Good" is a great system workout/show-off track. Gwen's voice should stay pure over a very snappy snare and some funky bass effects that bleed well into the midrange.

Some of the other tracks have some SDA efects going, but the oveall recording quality isn't quite as good as 2,3, & 6.

If you want to show off the phenomenal SDA system you have, then I can't recommend this CD enough! 10/10; *****

    Awesome, I'll pick it up tomorrow.

    I have all those tracks on mp3, but I'll sport for the 'original' for performance sake.

    Yeah, I really miss Bilbo's, Wallace's, and Hudson's. At least here in AZ they realize that true BBQ can only come from a pig, unlike those TX morons! ;)

    The weather out here is great. Mid sixties today although they are saying it might actually snow down here in Tucson, and I mean all the way to the city, not just in the mountains.

    The new house still treating you well? Are you getting the e-mail's on Mike's SDA Yahoo list?

    I'm gonna try to find another 4.0-based Carver amp and build the special SDA interconnect to get me 1kW/ch!

    I've got my John Lee Hooker playing. :D

    IMO, there's not much that doesn't sound better played though SDA's!

    Don't know which album those tracks are taken from but I do remember 'Tragic Kingodom' having very good sound. I bought that CD many, many years ago. I'll have to dig it up from my collection and give it a spin. I haven't listened to ND for at least 6 years.
