tube fanatic Posted October 1, 2022 Share Posted October 1, 2022 Those new to the forum are no doubt unaware that I returned to my roots some time ago and now listen exclusively in mono. Constantly fussing with channel balance (due to recording issues, room acoustics, and asymmetric frequency response of my ears), and being locked into a “sweet spot” became a chore. So, having forgotten how it would be, I decided to give mono a try and could not believe how glorious it is! No sweet spot and, with a speaker in the corner, amazing dispersion into the room. I use a single RB-51 series 2 since my den is on the small side. I recommend that anyone who is frustrated by the difficulty of attaining perfect stereo give this a try. Using a tiny mono tube amp to drive the speaker has really taken me back to the late 50s/early 60s. A couple of years ago I posted a very humorous article by Vincent Gallo in which he extols some of the other virtues of mono listening. It is worth reading! https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/194365-vincent-gallo-on-mono-listening/ Maynard 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
