Can pink floyd be listened to at a low volume?

Naff all on the box so resorted to music, sticking pink floyd - dark side of the moon on. Started out quite low, and as each song comes on progressivly the volume is getting louder

No complaints from the neighbours yet!

I think it just has to be listened to loud.

From the days way before the Loudness Wars had started

It's proper music with proper dynamics, not a neighbour battering racket - play it as loud as you wish!

Other.... Earphones would seem to be the most reasonable solution

You've given me a good idea - just going to put the SACD version of Dark Side of the Moon on, have not listened to it for a couple of months. Rumour has it Wish You Were Here gets released on SACD next month - can't wait

I usually find that Pink Floyd is best played with the speaker cables pulled out !!!

Re: Can pink floyd be listened to at a low volume?

last year my partner janine surprised me with two tickets to see off the wall the pink floyd cover band at Ripley castle, she made a picnic and loaded the car up, it was my last day of term and i was stressed and tired out... we drove to Ripley lugged the cool box up onto a grassy hill, layed the blanket out and lay down, the sun was just right, the hill formed a natural amphitheatre and the stage was at the lowest point so we were on higher ground and they started to play ...it was amazing ... it was so relaxing and as the sun lowered behind the treeline they played arnold lane ...its one of my favourite memories, i think that pink floyd is the type of music that suits certain times...in the same way as ac/dc is the right music to whack on full blast when you need to get revved up for a day at work

Other - both!

Either way works for me but loud is best.

'On The Turning Away' at about the 45 volume level in my Bella on the way to work.
