I live so close, it would be a crime not to go. 😁 Friday night should be a great, intimate concert with local jazz guitarist, Bobby Broom (on bandcamp too 😇 ).

It would be nice for a meet and greet at AXPONA - just a thought...

I will try to be there. Too bad it is stereo only.😎

 

Well, one year Dr. Waldrep had a surround system with all Bryston - B&W 802 D2's. There were others.

Yeah, a couple years I assisted George (exaSound) as we demoed some very nice 5.1 multichannel music using the exaSound S88 8 channel DAC/streamer, Pass Lab amps and Magnepan speakers.  It was a lot of fun.

I was there for one that used Revel speakers and all Benchmark electronics and Oppo Blu Ray player and DH Labs cabling. Excellent sound. It was at Axpona.

I remember sitting in that room listening to Night at the Opera by Queen in multichannel DVD-A - that is a trippy LP.

Qobuz has that album in 24/192 so I gave it a listen. I was surprised as I found the music way more accessible than I expected based on your description and what I normally listen to. And as you said, the sound is superb. That’s one of the things I like about Qobuz, someone says “I like this” and then I can try it and see if I do as well. I don’t typically stream music, I use Qobuz for exploration and then if I like something, I buy it. This one is on the list. I’m not normally a bass head but I suspect that the opening to Midnight Sugar could really move some air on your system if you wanted it to. I assume you’re going to video your discussion? I certainly hope so as I won’t be able to attend in person.

Are you sure it was 24/192? I swear I can only find 24/96 and wonder if I am looking at the wrong album.

No electron left behind.

Ah, I went looking for the Queen album... that was my mistake.

 

Nothing wrong with that - mine was 96/24 BTW - I bought the DVD-A used.

Hoping to bump into peeps. I hope it won't snow this year. It is an easy drive in, for me, until yahoo's get on OUR roads. 🤣

I just drive in, I am in the area though. It is easy and less costly to boot.
