I was just going to come here and make a post about these shows, and the box set in particular. I'm about to begin celebrating this glorious run once again but I can never settle on an EQ setting for any of them. Does anyone have any recommendations or particular ways they prefer listening to optimize the sound? I'm mostly listening via headphones, with a little bit of car listening.

I remember people complaining quite a bit when the 16 tracks from whole tour came out (only Deadheads!!!), somewhere here I remember someone mentioning that either raising or lowering the mids really worked wonders. I'm often guilty of doing the "smile" thing when it comes to EQ, but these shows deserve the best!

I'm of the belief that EQs are there to make you happy. Put it where you like it is my motto. I boost the mids cause I got rock-'n'-roll ears. 😎
