Any Genesis fans out there?
« on: December 02, 2009, 01:35:45 PM »
I just gave Trick of the Tail a spin and ... man that's a great album. I love the pedal bass! Although Mr. Collins' vocals and songwriting pretty much single-handedly ruined the band, his work behind the kit was awesome. If you can get your hands on a copy of the MFSL copy in good shape, pick it up...
I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.

I thought at first you were talking about Genesis Advanced Technologies speakers.

I opened up the thread thinking someone in Pittsburgh might have a set of these mighty speakers but then I came to my senses and normal thought came into my head and the band Genesis came to mind.

Not that I don't like Genesis I would have like to seen a set of Genesis speakers. :)

Above average. However the latest ( several years ago)Carpet Crawlers, with Collins and Gabriel, recorded around 2000 or so, is excellent. 8)

I like Genesis:

1: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4: And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5: And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6: And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7: And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8: And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9: And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10: And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11: And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12: And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13: And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14: And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16: And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17: And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18: And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19: And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20: And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21: And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22: And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23: And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24: And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25: And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30: And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31: And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Hello All,
Genesis...

Saw them, in 1972, the original lineup.  At the time, described as Moody Blues w/fangs by critics.  A great band, completely ruined by phil!!  My Favorite lp and cd, I have both is Trespass.  Favorite songs from the album Looking for Someone and White Fang.

I thought they were forgottn by everyone!

Nice thread.

I myself love Trick of the Tale.  Have both a nice vinyl copy and a standard CD.  Haven't really listened to the CD since I got the vinyl, felt it gave more warmth to the sound (if you know what I mean), but with the new SD/A-490t, will have to re-visit this good one.
MAIN SYSTEM:Carver TFM-55, Carver C-16, Carver S/DA-490t, Carver TD-1770, BSR-EQ3000, Philips AF-677, Auvio HD Radio Tuner, Polk SDA-1C's
Man Cave: HR-772, Technics SL-P220, Polk Monitor 12 Series 2
Bedroom: Cheap ass Teac Receiver, Klipsch Heresy II's
Porch: Kenwood KR-820 Receiver, Optimus STS 100

I hope you like the Digital Time Lens better than I.  Just got rid of my stand alone unit.  It did not last long in my system.

no shit. i love mine. the stand alone does a much better job on my early 80's cd's and recording than the version claim to be on my 490t player by the manual. the cd players version is good to ok on later cd's that the stand alone over does it on. what is it that turns you off about the dtl stand alone?
