One long summer holiday.
Yes your right, it's about the only thing good about getting OLD.

MrA. when you get your next CD playback system please keep track of the discs (tracks) and SPL level.
I will guess your neighbour will complain less as the bass frequencies specifically will be more controlled. Bass only-the frequencies will be faster shorter more controlled. when this happens the vibrations dont set up into the buldings structure causing as many sympathetic vibrations to occur. Longer, deeper more mllisecond result compared to a very much faster more micro-second result soundwave wise...This is a theory I have that may or may not be shared. I am beginning to know about vibrations and sound waves and air current similarities do respect them as they occur naturally in nature and all forms of instruments. Additionally lots of proprietary sofware and filters used by top shelf manufacturers have adjustment altering the sound. can you let us know the neighbour result? My wife complained less about the bass when I switched to a better playback system and I thought I was playing nearfield louder!!!!! But I actually turned the source down...My volumn control is not fine enough and I suspect this is why we will eventually see pre-pre-pre amp for volume control on UltraFi systems. Funny but digital through computer has exactly that right now.
For those that have not experienced it-All one needs to do is listen to an early era CD you THINK sounds harsh. Then play the same CD on a great new/modern transport/DAC one piece or multi-piece, and you will get fantastic bass but the high frequencies will still be non ultrasonic clear. Now listen to the same CD with a good remastering better bass, more control more there there but much more detail and approaching ultrasonic. Now listen to a Bluray remastered audio codec I believe you will hear super controlled bass, details comming out your rectum and ultra high fidelity sonics that seem to not only twirl around your head but seem to go far into the stratosphere way beyond what your ears can hear. I call this Blusound or UltraFi. If it is recorded to be so or Remastered to be so or upsampled to be so makes no difference....
This is the best form or sound room, sound wave, playback listening control...It is the ultimate source played back through a synergystic system ending at the ear. Remember this chain has a beginning -the source and an end the speaker.
Everyones ear will hear the very same music through the very same chain at the very same SPL differently. I would love to hear those Monster Acoustats and speak to your friend about bracing, materials etc.
Hi speedy1, Friday january 21st IF the weather permits i will be sitting in the sweet spot of that monster system in Kingsbury Quebec yes it's a good ride but when i get there i will be in HEAVEN contrary to my place where i'm in heaven same great sound BUT much smaller here's the place.

In two or three weeks I will be posting images of my 'new' Acoustat
setup...this time involving 2 Trans-Nova 120 Power Amps 'Bridged' and all cabling by Magnan
in my 1000 sq. ft. Studio/Loft with 12 ft. high ceilings...the Interfaces to my 1+1's have been 'upgraded' including the exclusive 'Air Mod'...all work performed by Roy A. Esposito, a key member of the Acoustat
Corp. original engineering staff for many years who worked alongside Jim Strickland who designed Acoustat
Can you say: 'Getting excited?'

...when there's bass in the music there's bass in the room...
More to that statement than a lot of people probably realize...

's from Roy.A. Esposito, have you received them yet ????? waiting for pictures, or did you change your mind.
