I have to wonder if KR secretly smiled a little when I said this, knowing that once upon a time he was likely a devout 2-channel guy as well...and that he knew, perhaps better than anyone, what I was getting myself into.
This is my way of saying I thoroughly enjoyed my little multi-channel experiment! I mean, of the extremely limited catalog that I have right now, the Neil Young Greendale
was no great shakes (doesn't really lend itself to the multi-channel thing), and the same goes for the Diana Krall title I have. However, Talking Heads in multi-channel; I just grabbed the opening tracks from a few titles, but holy smokes...songs like I Zimba, Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On), Burning Down The House, seem like they were absolutely made
And...because I'm doing some work in the HT...I didn't even have my Center hooked-up (and
the Sub was set-up for movies, so it wasn't exactly integrating smoothly into the mix)...and I was still pretty wowed by 4.1...lol. I could see where someone would get hooked, and go about setting up 5 really musical
speakers for dedicated multi-channel listening.
So...did we ever determine if the Touch will pass this multi-channel signal or not?
