Only on episode 3 of this, so I'm reading the thread with squinty, spoiler-filter eyes, but did anybody notice the "worn film" in the title card? A nifty touch.

I listened to this yesterday and was quite impressed. This is a unique and fierce album. Think Jack White meets Lourde (if you can). JB has plenty of juice left.

Turntable input is a good idea (even if he's not into vinyl a roommate along the way will be), though I'd personally still try to get there via the thrift store . . .

Fair enough. "Different" may not be the same as "much better or worse", though. It seems fair to assume that with more speakers and more discrete audio channels, it's possible to get a more...

Just to be clear, when I said "bump up the level of the center channel", I meant the sound level. In dB. At the receiver. Not moving the speaker itself.

First and easiest, bump up the center channel level. That's where the dialog is.

I believe the Aventage also allows you to tweak EQ per channel (after calibration); cutting the mid-bass a bit...

You missed my point. What we generally refer to as "imaging" is the illusion of sounds from places where speakers aren't. This gets into sweet spots and toe-in etc. Once you add a third (center)...
