No I haven’t, you can choose. 

Very hard Amigo. Carriage by Counting Crows springs to mind, bit of everything in there, brass, percussion, acoustic guitar,not too heavy, not too light. Or maybe Retrograde by James Blake,complex, full and needing a system with speed,bite and the ability to untangle a lot of sounds. Then again, you might think they both suck!

OK thank you, will see if I have them in my collection and if not, will source them/download etc. First songs off the rank through the new Stratos dac and JBL 4367's!! Will check out @Bunno77 's tracks as well. Lazarus by Terry Callier might be pretty cool as well

 

Then I might follow up with my very first CD, Icehouse, Man Of Colours. Just cos. :) 

 

Of course there were a million tapes etc before that, now all replaced by CD or download or just a memory.

I'll have to take a pic of the back of the grills, would be hard to imagine they don't affect the sound, they are very robust. Then again they would be very protective. ;)

No doubt, they is some very good acoustic fabric out there :)

 

I just mean they look serious with that big driver with the grills off, but not everyone likes serious, luckily they look good either way :thumb:

Tried it for one track without subs.

 

Nope, love my subs, they just keep that little 5% of subterranean bass foundation there for the rest of the music to tower tall on.

 

So next is to re-test the DSPeaker management through the Ayon and play a bit more with speaker position and crossover settings.

 

My music seems to sound nicer with the 24/192 upsampling switched off and on filter 2.

 

Sounding very bloody nice right now.
