    Will you include those possibly-recorded cues in your spreadsheet?

    Brundlefly reacted to Thor in Any music by JW you wish he had done differently?   
    I wish he had approached films like JOHN GOLDFARB PLEASE COME HOME and 1941 differently, I suppose. They're comedy noisefests mostly devoid of humour, and Williams piles on by doing frenetic/comic overkill -- thus losing any hopes of a laugh or of engrossment. A bit of restraint would have suited the films better, but probably not saved them.
     
    You could also argue that 'restraint' is something he could have used a litte bit more of now and then (John Adams' courtroom speech in AMISTAD comes to mind), but then there are other cases where the tongue-in-cheek, melodramatic exaggeration has its own value, whether it's an Indiana Jones or Harry Potter or Star Wars or what-have-you.
     
    But in general, I'm less keen on 'what-could-have-beens' and more interested in what actually was; and evaluating them based on that.

    Basically, that what @Holko said. I prefer the director's cut, because it has the advantages of the special edition without having its disadvantages. It's like the three cuts of Blade Runner, where the director kinda had to level off in order to get to the ideal version.

    Brundlefly got a reaction from bruce marshall in The Quick Question Thread   
    The special edition is by far the worst cut.

    Inside. And some kinda needless editing down of the theatrical. And chopping Forming the Mountain in half. The Cotopaxi doesn't really add anything in their place either. The theatrical rocks even if the first family scene is kinda missed.

    When I criticized the U.S. Marshals expansion for being that kind of museum piece with no sense for actual listening purposes, no one (on the FSM forum) could understand my point.

    The LLL organizes the music in the best possible way. Still, I'm not sure whether it was necessary to include the film versions of the Main and the End Title that merely swap out the march after the prelude.
     
    There is just an Superman March overload on disc two.

    Disc 5

     
    Well, I'm not saying it's not good music, at all... just maybe a tad too much of it for what it is. The not always very memorable rags do little to distract from all the very samey main theme statements. I think next time I may get a hankering for it, that Suite might just suffice perfectly.

    And good headphones.
     
     
    For the digital part of the signal chain, a "normal" cable should suffice. Compressed streams (e.g. DTS) are a good way to check if the cable is alright - if you have transmission errors, a frame of the stream will be broken, and the audio will drop out until the next frame. If you don't get dropouts, the cable is alright. If you do get them, it's a bad cable, or it's too long for its shielding (I have some occasional issues with my 7m (?) coax connection to the other room, but not frequent enough to bother me into getting a better cable). So if your sources are hooked up digitally to your amp, and your headphones connect directly to the amp as well, the only cables you have to worry about are the speaker cables.

    @Bayesian Good for you! Moving from mp3s to lossless really makes a difference. As do a good audio system! 
     
    As for files and gear - don’t waste your money on things that won’t up your experience.
     
    Don’t let audiophile snobs fool you into buying hi-res stuff (24 bit/96 kHz), the advantage is purely technical. Files are more expensive and not worth the extra money.
     
    Buy god speakers, it’s worth the investment.
     
    Buy good cables but you don’t need audiophile level. That shit can be crazy expensive and you won’t hear any difference compared to medium price, high quality equipment. Trust me. I’ve poured more money into cables and connectors than I’d like to admit, so I’ve learned the hard way.
