Artistic integrity?:confused: Originally, stereo (taken from the Greek and, in the vernacular, meaning three-dimensional) was a 3 track format. However, consumer audio products were not able to play...

Thousands. Prices vary from reasonable (under 20$) to outrageous (many hundreds of dollars)--much like 2ch offerings.

There's really little point, in the end, with arguing with those afflicted with cognitive dissonance (as your fine efforts have clearly and sadly demonstrated). I recommend pulling out a favourite...

Actually, it's been answered several times, quite well and clearly. Persisting in thinking otherwise is just stubbornness--likely still motivated by the erroneous assumption that all MCH recordings...

There are lossless, many of them high resolution, formats (SACD, DVD-A, Blu-ray). However, I'm the opposite of you in one sense--I would (and frequently have) pay extra for MCH, even if it means...

MCH is not dependent upon SACD (though I'd argue it's a niche, rather than dead, format). I have MCH on CD, DVD-A,SACD, Blu-ray, DAD, DVD-V and while I don't yet have any, it's also available as...

He's right. What you seem to think is the norm (instruments coming at you from all directions) is actually rather uncommon (much to my chagrin, but that's personal preference). Three of my favourite...

If they didn't go MCH with Breakfast in America, it's unlikely they'll do it with Crime.

I will look at distortion measurements when I get a chance. As far as the giant peak, someone suggested it could be an artifact of my using the RS analogue SPL meter with the calibration file, though...

Hearing instruments/voices that are "buried in the mix" when listening in MCH--discrete or matrixed (the latter open to tweaking for taste) is one of the biggest benefits of MCH audio.

Question regarding measurements above. Assuming the 8033 tames the giant peak, do I just raise the volume on the SVS to lift the (presumably flatter) curve output? In other words, is the giant hump...

I guess this season they're taking the old joke seriously.

If everyone just listened to Jack Bauer, the show would be called 12.
