This was the first time I had ever heard XTC. I'm not even sure what to compare it to! :p Heard some Talking Heads type music in there at times. I thought the music and mix were a lot of fun though!

I wasn't blown away with the 3d as it is a bit conservative for my tastes, but when you combine the reference audio/video with the 3d, it is one of my favorite HT rides. Not to mention the best...

Objectively, this third installment is a significant improvement bass wise from first two, just a little low level (which can be bumped of course). Very curious to see this now.
