Hearing Everything That Nothing Can Measure, a Two-channel Audio System by CanadianMaestro
7 x 5.5 x 3 metres
Very lucky to have this synergy. I've long stopped reaching for "better".
Classical, mellow vocals & blues, old rock.
No pain. Soundstage like Banff, with pinpoint imaging. Accuracy, transparency, linearity. Spatial cues and recording venue's acoustical resonances come through with crystalline clarity. Superb organic musicality, with rhythmic coherence and a balanced tonality. Deep bass if it's there in the recording. Crisp, smooth treble. Midrange is like silk, never fatiguing. Piano and string instruments have never sounded so real. Vocalists are in my room with properly scaled sizes that I can envision -- "listening with my eyes"! Orchestral pieces are reproduced with uncanny separation between instrumental sections. Not quite 100% like the real thing, but I'm satisfied.
2-TB drives connected to BDP-2 player.
Digital playback on my system is superb, and I don't crave vinyl like others do. Also, streaming isn't my thing. But, I am acquiring more downloads as I move away from CD purchases (not enough space). My main music sources: Amazon resellers, Presto Classical, Audite.de, Discogs, Pro Studio Masters. Brick stores: I recommend Westsider (NYC), Blackbyrd Myoozik (Alberta), La Dame Blanche (Paris), EMI (Wien), Second Life (Amsterdam). I have fond memories of Tower Records (67th/B'way) and HMV (72nd/B'way) in NYC. The HMV at 72nd seemed to be a favorite among marquee performers who played at Lincoln Ctr/Carnegie Hall. I spotted Charles Dutoit, Anne Sophie-Mutter, and Maurizio Pollini on diff occasions, chatting with the manager (and probably buying loads of discs). Both stores had the best classical CD stocks I had ever seen. "Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess". - Oscar Wilde
