Here's the third run (actually, it's about the 10th run - I skipped a few incremental changes).
And the shocking results:
Not believing this, we kicked back and listened to some music for awhile. Then reran the tests with the same basic results. There is no EQ in the signal chain.
We then did some "critical" listening (Jeff Beck, WOTW, Tron). Both of us were pretty floored by the performance. To quote Abraham: The system came together almost perfectly, and it certainly sounded like it during the demos! WOTW was really good!
I am amazed at the system. I have never owned proper bass, and really never experienced a true high end home theater. Needless to say, I'm still grinning!
Hopefully Abraham will chime in here. Please fire away with questions, comments, criticism - all is good and appreciated.
