It was recorded in a cathedral, and the Auro recording captures the space in a way that no other format could.
There is a couple of Bernie Dressel Auro recordings which are phenomenal, I am caught applauding and wooing after the drum solo on the Gary Reber Produced California Recording, it was played full blast in last years Award Wining Alcons demo. Its's big band Jazz but the musicians are Hollywood's best instrumentalists, The miking proved to be spot on in recreating the space.
I wish the new Marantz would allow you to reassign channels more flexible like the center and sub2
which are totally optional channels to some of the most ardent immersophiles. When you limit the seating to 2 rows of loveseats which both cushions are tightly integrated so one can seat in the middle if flying solo.
CEDIA ACOUSTICS PROFESSOR and Master Calibrator Adam Pelz was skeptical about many new controversial practices which I am currently a proponent of, his criticism was steady and constant for about the better part of last year. Let's just say that I made immediate 60% progress recruiting him to this exception to the rule setup (powered by uncalibrated 8802), i believe that foundations were laid to convince him on another 20% of these controversial practices. The facial expressions I caught him not helping himself to demonstrate were the grand prize of the evening.
This is what he said. He is the third person I have shown this center less 5+wides.4 with hardwired arrayed surrounds.
Here is the top project manager for the wealthiest homes going up in miami waterfront after his second repeat visit.
And this is the first client I showed the system by chance, he opened my eyes to the accidental discovery that the controversial practices DID WORK better than expected.
IF YOU ARE READING MARANTZ SOLID FLAT PANELS without center channels are a perfectly enjoyable way to create a fully immersive bubble in small areas within a nearfield wORLD cLASS IMMERSIVE BUBBLE.
GIVE US THE FLEXIBILITY TO HAVE FULL FREQUENCY 8.0.8 SYSTEMs BY 2018.
So i'm late to the party about the next Marantz, it will have some form of Dirac functionality?
