How do these Spatials fare with the genres of electronica, reggae (dub), house & techno?
I've had a pair of M3 Turbos for about a month, although I'm still not sure exactly what I have. It is a different sound than what I've experienced. The clarity and definition are astounding. So I'm adapting to them. Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed. However, I'm hearing details in the music. A certain dryness to cymbals and tambourine, and I'm unsure if it's due to the amps, the recording or ... what? I'm open to any recommendations re music with cymbals, tambourine, snare drum, etc. to further test what the issue may be. I'm also thinking of trying tube amplification just to see how sweet that might sound. Thanks.
If you love music with that kind of synth bass, I'd go for the M3 and play the heck out of them during the 60 day trial, during which time the bass should open up with driver break in. I have a pair of M4's which are rated down to 45 Hz (± 3 db) in room, while the M4's are rated down to 32 Hz. They aren't entirely broken in yet, and in 95% of the music I listen to, the low end is wonderful - clean and articulate. But if you want to "feel" that kind of floor shaking low end for reggae and techno, you'd probably want the M3's. Talk to Clayton!
For CD, try "Sound Roots" and "Ballads From The Black Sea" from the Mapleshade label. You must order online. The former is an excellent jazz recording that is clear and pristine sounding w/o any sign of dynamic compression. The latter is a female jazz vocalist from Russia of all places (in English) with that same with that same kind of immediacy and clarity. I doubt that you've heard a drum kit as alive as on these. Report back, ok? Cheers.
