KEF and Wyred 4 Sound Audio Room
General Room Notes – These speakers are freaking beautiful. They are superbly art deco. Class D amp, hmmm, my expectations are dropping as I have a rather contentious history. To be blunt, I f'ing hate them. Lets put on some music and see how it goes!
Music – Listening to the stock music. I like that these speakers go down to the mid bass with authority and don’t even attempt to do super deep bass. Smart. Clean, clear, dynamic. Shocking that this is a class D amp.
Sibelius – Nice full, smooth sound. To say I’m surprised would be an understatement. I normally find class D amps cold and sterile. What dark magic has been wrought here?
Mahler – Oh yeah, that horn just cuts through the sound. Dynamics holy crap! Bass is tight and super punchy. Treble gets a bit hard when things get crazy.
Tom Waits – Huge sound. I think this is the best, larger than life sound of any system so far. And, unlike a lot of other rooms, no bass hump on the acoustic bass.
Natalie Merchant – The overall clarity and bass control/detail really shine here. The bass singer has grit and detail in his growl that’s normally glossed over. Excellent pace and rhythm. Wow, I expected the treble to get hard when Natalie lets loose. But no, stays super smooth and detailed. This room really shocked me at how great it sounds. One of the best rooms of the show.Jason’s Notes
Sibelius wow i really like the texture of the violin in this setup. Thumbs up.
Mahler trumpet sounds triumphant!!! MONSTER dynamics. Fuck!!!! Earth shattering
Waits holy shit! Behind the curtain there is a giant beautiful performance. I want to peak behind it. Home run performance.
Merchant solid solid solid imaging. Everything is well anchored. No cartoonishness to male vocals here. Just strong confident grace and beauty. Forget analyzing I just want to enjoy it.
Fuck you all. I'm not giving up the sweet spot. This is hawt!!!!
