All the editions of PG that I've owned sound like tin - no bottom end at all which is a shame.  Can anyone suggest the best sounding reissue?  Thanks.

what medium(record or cd)? what are you playing it through? adjusting the eq will typically bring out characteristic that seem to not be there.

It never was an audiophile production (a lot of people thought the original release sounded muddy overall), but the new remaster sounds absolutely terrific.  As far as bottom end goes, 'Kashmir', for example, never really had it to begin with...

I've had that problem with boots. Depending on your system or EQ you can bring the bottom up. If your system has pre-set equalization choices it will be tough. Since I started collecting/downloading boots I bought a component EQ (nothing crazy, middle of the road Harmon Kardon). I have a lot of fun with it.

I first used used it on the 3.17.73  tape from an EV source and through trial and error I found the right mix. Voila, bass and bass drum. I played with mid range for snare drums but I'm not an engineer and never got the sound I imagined. 

The re issues are are great sounding. Official releases, I just use the component for an amp of sorts and boost everything equally.

I've noticed speakers can lie,  something that may sound great on 1 radio isnt going to sound the same on the next.
