    If these clips prove anything, it's the inability of the player to tune his guitar and dial things in correctly.

    I think that your comments here and on the FAS forum prove something, but not about the pod.

    This thread is a waste of space.

    It's apples to oranges, since it's different pieces of music, but... they are similar...

    I can clearly hear some fizz in the XT demo (funny, I never had much of a fizz problem with my XT Pro, though) and I don't hear it in the HD demo.

    To your credit, bmi, this thread is NOT a waste of space. You just stuck the clips up there and let us listen. Didn't even say what you though first. Thanks. Sorry that you had to get flamed for it.

    bmi,

    I'm confused... Do you like the HD? Because elsewhere I think you've indicated otherwise.

    Let's not turn the thread into "bmi vs PODHD", just take it for what it is. For me, I was given two recordings that I'd probably never find myself, so I listened to them carefully and to my ears the author managed a far nicer tone/mix with the newer gear. That's all.

    LOL, Pietro, you've missed the point, he's trying to prove to the entire planet that the XT is as good as the HD...have you not been reading his posts?

    Let's also extend a little grace as he's translating everything into English as he goes I fear.

    But in any case, he didn't prove that here by a long shot... Perhaps some have lost their high-frequency hearing and can't hear that amazing fizz.

    I don't need to be "pleased", bmi, but if you're basing your assumption that the XT and HD are the same based on clips like this, I might add you to my ignore list, because there is something wacky with your ears...

    I can NOT understand what you're talking about here.

    well, your opinion should state your point of view, not please us... if you're afraid that somebody will be sad after you diss pod HD (or whatever, i am not a fanboy of HD) i must cheer you up: probably nobody cares THAT much about your opinion

    Even though this is not a great comparison I definitely prefer the tone from the XT here. Something in the HD tone has a bloated fartiness to it.

    Wow. My experience through headphones and speakers both was totally opposite yours.

    Some persons hear fizz, some can hear voices. Life is hard.

    (pure fun intended, no hard feelings :D)

    I like tones with more high end content. Probably why I like 11r tones so much.
