  1. Oh, here we go again. Chris making comments that show how much he really doesn't know (again). Lots of conjectures with little or no evidence to support his conclusions. Chris, I'm sure a guy you has read Danley's patent on the Synergy Horn but just in case you haven't, please do so. If you have, then I have to say that you don't fully understand it. Your very poor attempted execution of trying to make a Synergy Horn out of a K402 with some drivers tacked onto the horn sides proves this. Just like your "de-mastering" BS. If anything deserves the BS button it's your idea of "de-mastering". The Hyperion looks very similar to the SH50 + Epik subs combo that I've been using for a number years now. What I'd like to know about the Hyperion is how much of the performance (ie: flatness & smoothness of frequency response and phase response) is achieved through use of DSP (as opposed to physical configuration of drivers/horn design). The built-in amplifiers might also be a draw back for lots of people. We shall have to wait and see I guess.
  2. Been too way much of this the last year. See ya at that great gig in the sky, man!
  3. "That member" does not "de master" anything. It is not possible to "de master" any modern audio recordings using the methods he describes. As a matter of fact, his description, definition of what he is doing merely shows how little he actually knows and how little experience he has regarding audio recording and mastering. This same member obviously loves to spend more time attempting to tweak things he can't do too much about rather than just listen to music. Do what you like. But please, stop this "de mastering" non-sense. You need the original master recording to do this. Furthermore audio systems which are not properly balanced (in other words have some kind of bias) will tend to exaggerate (or attenuate) certain aspects of system performance. The closer your "system" (which by my definition includes the room) gets to neutral the less annoying so-called "bad recordings" sound.
  4. No offense. But that's because I'd be willing to bet you've (like most people) never actually heard an all-digital recording/playback system. That being said, I understand where you're coming from.
  5. Obviously this depends on YOUR needs and requirements. Nowadays I'm in the less is more state of mind. IMO the MA5300 would be a great match for a simple Cornwall IV system. The main caveat for me though was no outputs - analog or digital. And for hi-res streaming you'll need to add something like the NAD/Bluesound Node2i.
  6. I added Dolby Atmos a number of years ago - when Gravity came out on 4K BluRay. I only have Atmos speakers in front on top of the RF7ii. I can't say that it adds much. In this configuration it seems a lot like stereo - I have to be in the sweet spot to get the best out of it.
  7. This is one of fav's. But I like it so much I often watch it anytime.
  8. The real James Bond 🎲👈🏎️ Who among us never fantasized about being 007? Peace be With You, Sir
  9. I'll start with IT............and Death Becomes Her
  10. I didn’t see this until just now (unfortunately). Rocco Prestia, bassist for Tower of Power past away September 29, 2020. This one hits me a little harder than most, for several reasons. 1) We’re about the same age – months apart. 2) A number of years ago one of the best musicians and guitar player I ever knew and played with said to me “Man, you smoked it! That was just like Rocco Prestia!” when we finished the set and left the stage. Personally, I don't think I've ever played as well as Rocco, and never will. But, it's nice to get that kind of respect. See you at that great gig in the sky Rocco!!!
  11. That's because you've never played that kind of music. Professionally, or otherwise. Never been in a recording studio, recording it, either, have you. Nor are you a bass player. I am. And I agree with Carl on the Tom Petty thing. Good subs help full-out the bottom end and give the "added weight" to the bottom that even an acoustic upright bass produces.
  12. Lot's of Beatles songs - You Can't Do That - Ticket To Ride - If I Needed Someone The Byrds used them extensively too - Eight Miles High
  13. This one does it for me ❤️
