I thought that room was just ho hum. Very smooth but lacking some detail I had heard elsewhere. Perhaps the wrong music and the wrong timing. No one seemed to be in charge keeping the ball rolling. All that beautiful Audio Research gear. I wouldn't even call it one of my top ten. One of my favorite rooms was a cable company with all Modright gear and Marten speakers. Who was that company. They were a great positive energy. They turned me onto some new music. It was a sweet system.
I have never made money on tips from brokers. They are not about making money for you, just themselves IME. Instead, I would recommend to watch the nightly business report every night. Search on Google for what Warren Buffet is buying and selling (ie: IBM and PSX). Also, if you get a brokerage account for your IRA at Fidelity, they have every day the buy/sell ratios for lots of highly traded stocks. You can identify dips and buy on these and sell when everyone else is selling. That way you leverage expertise from a wide swath of investors, both private and professional.Steve N.
Dynamic Design AVBest Demonstration of the Audible Difference of Music Played with a Positive Attitude and Vibe I have heard a Modwright Pre-Amp here and a Modwright modified Oppo there but never everything in one system. Wow I can dig it! The Marten Speaker interpretation of what the equipment served up was stunning. But then I have to postulate. Was it the Modwright? or was it the Dynamic Design AV cabling? It has been shown that a healthy positive attitude can effect the molecules around it. It is my personal theory that this system sounded so incredible because the people around us in the demo were just so happy we could share thier great sound room with them. If the Dynamic Design products are manufactured with that same positivity then they have it stored in the copper molecules. I think we should all try these cables and find out for ourselves. Loved this CD.
Forcing the seating closer to the wall behind you likely isn't a good idea. If you keep the seating the same and want to pull the speakers forward, just pull them a tad closer together too so you maintain the equilateral if that is your preference.Bryan
I'm thinking that were I to move my turntable and rack from behind the speakers and add two more GIK panels to the wall that could be a sonic enhancement. Further, there would be no visual impairment to the stage, just black space. It's hard to dismiss the visual distraction of my turntable and rack where it presently is. As the speakers are active, all that would remain is my power conditioner for my speakers. Two longer IC's is all I would need. Thoughts, problems, anyone?
Do it! Powered speakers means no long speaker cable runs. I've had my gear off to the side for years and it opens up the space sonically and visually. Putting some object of contemplation between the speakers can be really cool. My friend has a large framed photo of Bernstein conducting an orchestra between his speakers. Even a simple lava lamp works well.Russ
I would predict that they beat any other speaker. Never heard anything like them before in 15 years of doing shows. Ryan can give you the anechoic chamber plots.I put my system back together at home and I'm now playing many of the new tracks I acquired that sounded amazing on the show speakers. Really disappointing. I hate my system Steve N.
Cheeseboy & SoCalWJS- thanks for the feedback on the Wilson room.Michael Fremer(Wilson XLF owner) comments on the room around the 40 min. mark of this podcast:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IS-dWDowCHw
Hey Steve, thanks for the kind words ... but your front end deserves much praise as well! I've tried myself at home doing experiments like flac vs wav, and had never heard the obvious and immediate difference that we did at Newport using your gear. It's was clear within 5 seconds even standing on the left side of the room, not just in the sweet spot. And my DAC at home is no slouch at almost $6000. Yours is just much better at fleshing out low level details than anything I've ever heard.
Those Final Drive transformers made a nice difference on Saturday once hooked up as well, the improvement in speed was immediate!
this was my first show. and i had a blast. thanks to the guys hanging with me and "dealing" with me. i can be a little difficult and stubborn at times but hats off to Steve, Cliff, John, his lovely wife Ann and of course Hugh. what was the name of the second CD we heard in that wilson room, Steve ?i really want to learn more about the room synergy and all the cups and tumblers that it comes with..will post some pixs soon...............
...The good news is that at least with ALAC and FLAC, you can get back to pristine .wav. Not sure that is the case with AIFF....
Why would it not be the case?? Convert WAV to FLAC, then to AIFF, then to FLAC, then back to WAV. You'll end up with the same file you started with (except possibly for metadata changes).Along the same lines, how does it sound to use something like Jplay Mini set up to decode FLAC to WAV (into RAM) before playing, compared to playing a native WAV file?
