extreme phantom center image

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have always experienced some level of a phantom cc image when listenin to 2 channel music. I played some big band music fronted by Tony Bennett through a Sonos system via Mog. It literally sounded like 80% of the sound was coming from dead center. So much so that I got up to make sure it wasn't on. I suppose it may have been recorded in mono but I have never heard anything remotely close to this before. Has anyone experienced something like this? I know recordings have a huge impact on how music sounds but this was an extreme.

It could have been the way the record was recorded, I have AC/DC on vinyl, back in black(import), and all the music is between the speakers, there isn't much of a soundstage outside the speakers. However I can play Eva Cassidy Live at blues Alley, and the soundstage is huge.

I'm familiar with that thread, thanks for the link though. I understand the concept of imaging or "3d" music. I had just never heard that much content coming from a phantom center before.

Yeah, it can be very impressive. I would argue that most people have never heard well imaging.
