Also, I've been on an 'old recording' kick lately, buying both a DG set of early 20th Century recordings and one from Naxos. well, nobody.

A few months back there were a World Premier and 2 U.S. Premiers of three lost Beethoven Piano Trios. Gotta give them a spin tonight. Yes, how many performances of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas do we need? I believe I said "There certainly are a few very exciting new artists out there." The only disc that has bothered me that MC SACD fixed was Warren Bernhardt's Ameilia's Song with his piano hard right channel rather than the typical center stage for the main artist. A string quartet would be in a smaller hall or, even, a rather large salon. The quality and investment in the stereo setup is higher than the multi channel but I think that reflects the quantities of music that I have multi-channel vs. stereo. A stereo receiver typically has only two built-in amplifiers, which provide a two-channel speaker configuration (left and right). Which is better DD, DTS or Multi-Channel? Multi-channel vs 2-channel I have a 5.1 channel set up (Classe SSP-800/CA-5200) and am considering creating a 2-ch setup within it.

Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1) or multi-channel music (e.g. I would be very surprised if you don't like him. But if you have heard cylinder recordings or acoustic flat discs played back through the original equipment, as I have, I think you would have to concede that performers could not "adjust the sound" of a string quartet or a soprano or even a piano to sound like a like performer. What?! Multi-channel amps are a form of “Jack of all trades and master of nothing”. Mixes that put the trombones in your behind, well, yeah, I am quite sympathetic with the idea that's bad. Composers rarely if ever wrote an exact acoustic into their music.thanksbarondla. And we started debating music, I advised him on some tracks he was unaware of and so on. What we think is that talent as far as technical ability, is all over the place. Now, only you can decide if it is worth the cost/effort to reproduce this. You won't get 'Ascension' because we've already had it once, and the best you could do is muster variations on it. Power is not linear, one channel needs some juice for a bass passage, another has some high kick to amplify and each creates a draw on the power supply and the rest of the channels will not be able to enjoy the full power and run on an exhausted transformer. They are excellent pieces and a great find for the classical music world. First, resisting hi-end/audiophiles are a more intractable problem today because all audiophiles were a much tinier minority in the mono days.

OTOH home theater is relatively new as was hifi when stereo hit the market and as such it has been an easy transition from home video with mono or stereo sound tracks to DVD and Blu ray with surround sound. Stereo which is similar (the same?) Hope you understand why we laugh. Honestly, one of the problems with audiophilia is that it is often akin to necrophilia. Panning should never EVER result in any signal coming from only 1 speaker in a multichannel recording. my cup runneth over. Equipment isn't good enough for one. This means 130w of power for audio and considering efficiency and the rest of the amp, I would expect about 250W power draw, on the back is stated 340W … you get the point. Do you have the new Hamonia Mundi release of David Lang's "Little Match Girl Passion?" You're either some kind of post-modern (sorry) recombiner a la John Zorn in 1985, or you're doing what your elders did, just not as well (Wynton). See www.aes.org/sections/pnw/ppt.htm for a deck that examines some of the issues. After a few other “cigarette break” discussions, I told him to go buy a £200-300 simple stereo amp. The main part of this is power, a 7 channel amplifier will have one transformer and one main dc filter block, yes they will be bigger but still, you draw power for 7 channels from the same power block. Disney Hall is an amazing venue even if it is ugly on the outside (my opinion). Re: Multi channel surround vs stereo. Thought we might discuss it some more here. Like stereo, like electronic (as opposed to acoustic) reproduction, etc. If that were true then we would already have the vast majority of new music recorded in multichannel. Some will learn and some will not. I just wanted to put that on your radar because it is truly a great album, superbly recorded. Just as did stereo and hifi.

Now we have this huge legacy of great recordings of great music that don't translate into multichannel. I give an example. All channel stereo – some receivers offer and all channel stereo mode. If you look at the state of pop. FREE Shipping. It may be particularly pointed for me but I do think that the maturity of recorded music itself is the greatest force working against multichannel in high end audio. The original iteration of mono audio is a single-channel recording that is output through a single speaker. This was interesting in the Stereophile habits thread. When Hifi and records were relatively new this was not an issue. For the 3 channel recommenders, wasn't their issue that in that day most formats other than 30ips tape had wandering central images, ie cassette were horrible for this. Contrary to what you may believe, certain genres which you describe as being in decrepit shape are actually thriving in terms of content. Sometimes history does repeat itself. Umm. who are today's Beatles? No need. And when we look at the back of the device, maximum power draw is 500W. The problems with tape skew certainly make the problem worse, needless to say. As to side and back, there are reasons to have each of side and back speakers, due to HRTF's (head related transfer functions). It is inevitable that as the body increases so the bar goes higher for me to wish to buy yet another recording of some work that I already own (in some cases in multiples). Mono sound is preferred in radiotelephone communications, telephone networks, and radio stations dedicated to talk shows and conversations, public address system, hearing aids. All of those venues are acoustically quite different from those of a listening room or living room in a modern home. Well, multi-channel stereo provides the full left and right stereo audio through both the front & rear speaker channels.

It would be even more specific if the work was commissioned by a particular performer or organization. Multichannel Television Sound, better known as MTS, is the method of encoding three additional audio channels into an analog NTSC-format audio carrier.It was developed by the Broadcast Television Systems Committee, an industry group, and sometimes known as BTSC as a result.. MTS worked by adding additional audio signals in otherwise empty portions of the television signal. after reading so much about the purported benefits of the 'black-less' records... this doesn't bode well for those clarity pressings, as this was my 1st experience w/ colorless vinyl... (sorry for taking this discussion off tangent, but Buddha? Yet, not a word from anyone. So I like the Boulez/NY SACD-only release of Ravel, which puts the listener in the middle of the orchestra with instruments all around, and I also like other multichannel performances where the surround tracks have only ambience info (e.g., Abbado's Mahler DVD-V's containing multichannel DTS sound).

(For example, in terms of marketshare, MP3 and AAC dominate the personal audio market, though many other formats are comparably well suited to fill this role from a purely technical standpoint.) Watch a sample on u-tube. Below is what I currently have: Stereo Only Getz/Gilberto - sounds great Carpenters Gold - sounds amazing Rolling Stones Let It Bleed - sounds ok The police Synchronicity - sounds like crap I have had fun with MC SACD in 3 channels only and had great results, but would not say that it is night and day different from 2 channel other than I can play with the depth of the center channel in MC mode.

And we have productions methods carried over from quad, and "dialog only" center channels, and all sorts of theatre production necessities crippling our multichannel home audio. That was a fine example of the benefits of multichannel done right. Mono is the term used to describe sound that is only from one channel while stereo uses 2 or more channels to provide an experience much like being in the same room where the sound was created. Anyhow, here we have great lost music that would certainly be gobbled up by classical music lovers when made commercially available, plus the possible touring opportunity to go around to every major city in the country (or world for that matter), and perform these great pieces. You have pointed out the later much better than I could but the former, the state of music, is much more problematic. Go to a friend and borrow a good stereo amp. You read the accounts of these events and wonder, how could they not tell?? I was a Friday and he had the weekend to play with it. it isn't.
