Thanks in advance.
Many, if not the majority of us in the thread, including seasoned veterans who have worked professionally in audio for decades, think your fundamental approach you have just described, is not
a good idea.
There's no rational explanation why the sound emanating into the room from the speakers will benefit from room correction circuitry manipulation, only
if the musicians are left handed, whereas the sound emanating from the exact same speakers, with the exact same placement, in the exact same room, but with music played by musicians which are right handed will not
You can substitute in that sentence the words "music played by left handed musicians"/"music played by right handed musicians" with either:
- "recordings that have a lot of hiss and sound grungy"/"recordings with no hiss that sound clean and precise"
- 5 ch. sources/ 2 ch. sources
- CD/ SACD
It doesn't matter what the sources are.The room correction circuitry is arguably either good or bad, (I suppose), but the notion that it is beneficial for what I guess you deem "lower quality" sources, yet should be avoided for what i guess you deem "high quality" sources, doesn't make sense logically.
Furthermore, to better your understanding of the true
"differences" between SACD and CD, might I recommend you read professional papers published in scholarly science journals such as the AES
, and immediately dismiss the false propaganda spread by the popular audio press which attempts to refute them, since they have a financial incentive to cater to their "high-end", expensive-gear-selling advertisers.Edited by m. zillch - 4/19/13 at 11:10am
