Beautiful work Lou!
Laura it is nice to see you appreciating his great craftsmanship and even spurring him on by refining your system.
One thing you might want to note in listening to isolation is hearing Music in time. How a note decays. Good isolation will bring out separation of instruments well. The equipment isn't dealing with as much vibration and is focused on the musical signal supplied - so as the music proceeds, there isn't any latent vibration occuring after the notes. Leads to great separation of instruments, imaging, Taunt presentation. Tne thing I noticed when I refined the isolation in my system was piano music. A flurry of notes broke out into individual notes with less overlap. Listen to a quick pianists run up or down the piano.
Sharp transients are sharper. When the music resonated and decayed, it was there in spades too.
Lou's DIDs do this without imparting any tonal changes.
Is that a Modwright OPPO 105 on the other top shelf?
I was considering getting the mod for my digital front end - I have a 105 in my ht room.
My Audio Research CD 9 is nice but I am looking for something with more natural sound
