Okay...so I'm listening to The Shins "Chutes Too Narrow" on my freshly hooked up 3910 connected via analog to my 3805. All I can say is W
W! The separation and clarity seems leaps and bounds beyond my Pio Elite 45a (which I wasn't really expecting). Some people seem to think the 45 a good audio contender...they obviously haven't listened to the 3910!
Damn, you can hear the sound of the tip of the drumstick bouncing on the cymbals!
As somebody else noted, the voices seem remarkably clear...and forward, too. It's only the 3rd song on the first CD on this bad boy, and I haven't even set anything else up yet other than making some connections. I haven't changed any settings or anything and it sound remarkably good. I'm a huge fan of the Paradigm 100's and they sound so damn awesome right now. I've got to get things set up for DenonLink and SACD/DVD-A...oh yeah, this thing plays DVD's, too...I almost forgot...guess I need to get a 10m DVI. Thanks for the Lindy recommendation...nice price...any others? I'll hook up for now via component to my PJ and check it out later tonight. We don't have a dedicated theater room and our living room has a wall of windows that faces west (sans window treatments ala my wife), so I can't really get a good sense of the DVD performance until night sets in.
Ooohhh...next CD...Tortoise's self-titled, or maybe "Standards", or anything of theirs...if you don't know it, check it out. It's the *****. Instrumental experimental jazz rock funk fusion on drugs...all courtesy of Chicago. Good stuff!
I'll check back in a bit!
