  1. I will pass this along to my violinist wife. She will be amused to know she can't hear high notes, esp. at night.
  2. My K-horns image quite nicely. I do have them well setup, 20 feet apart and tucked into corners. The imaging is as good as I have heard with any other speaker. Magnapans that a friend of mine has do extremely well too, but no dynamics. Setup obviously is a big part in this.
  3. PM sent. Did this on my phone so let me know if you don’t get it.
  4. Very cool info. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Some of the best surround effects I have come across.
  6. Seems likely. I have always used HDMI with my theater system.
  7. Go to Tools Then DSP studio Output format At this point look for channels on the right hand side. There is a drop down box that will allow you to configure the number of output channels. Effects in DSP studio will allow you to decide how much side/rear you want added.
  8. I use multi channel (stereo to 7.1) all the time. JRiver does the conversion for me and does an excellent job. My Integra pre/pro can also do this but JRiver seems to do a better job and is easily tweaked.
  9. I have used a variety of amps with my K-horns over the years. The lowest powered was an 8 watt tube amp which turned even close to half way up would have been deafening. That said an AB switch can be fun and allow you to compare directly different amps.
  10. This is my 2nd Yaqin amp, and I have 2 of their phono preamps. All sound good and trouble free (so far).
  11. The most un-tube like tube amp I ever owned. I expect a warm lushness out of a tube amp with lots of depth and good imaging. Not so much with this one for me. Currently have this one with my K-horns: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A7IZN70/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  12. Academia did not kill jazz, it just evolved like its audience. The 1930s and 40s was the era when jazz was all pervasive and the pop music of the day. However the kids grew up and stopped dancing to jazz. Their kids wanted something new (rock). The jazz players innovated seeking more artistic freedom and a new audience. The audience gradually dwindled. Over the last 20 plus years, if you wanted to make a living in the jazz world you could only really do it at a college/university/conservatory. At that point the audience is not so important so you can do what you want. Thus jazz gets even more experimental. Other than a very small few, there are no jazz only players making a living. These days you need to be able to do it all (and extremely well) to eat. All those kids playing in college jazz bands better branch out, it doesn't matter how good you are if there is no work. Kind of the same with those studying orchestral music. To the point however, all music evolves. Academia is where jazz thrives, freed from having to be popular music it can be more expressive, complex, and experimental.
  13. Since I never play at A432 it just sounds flat to me. Sometimes I wind up at a gig with an old organ on a cold day so pitch is around there, I really have a hard time getting down that low. Most major orchestras in the US play at A442, with European ones at A444. These higher tunings play hell with older instruments (many older woodwinds unusable, brass instruments needing to be cut down). My regular groups are A440 and so my ear is set at A440, takes 30 min. plus to accept A442 but I can adapt. A432 is a much bigger leap.
