    I’m looking forward to the UHQR release of “Aja” coming next month. There has yet to be an expert mastering done of that album yet.
    Polk: / SDA-CRS / SDA-1C / M-10B / M-7B / M-5 / M-5jr / RTA-11T / LSIM703 / LSIM704 / LSIM706 / RTI8 / CSI3 / CSI5 / RTI4 / RTI-A5 / CSI-A6 / RC80i / RC85i / RC6s / PSW300 / Atrium6 / Atrium4 / About a dozen pair of Atrium45 lol.
  • I need to write some more down, but I enjoy listening to this 4 as part of my tester list now:

    Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings
    Nobody's Baby

    Frank Sinatra
    Fly Me To The Moon

    Maria Mena
    I Was Made for Loving You

    Stevie Wonder
    Living For The City

    The 1st three are relatively simple soundstages, with defined pieces in their place.

    #4 is an odd mix (to me). I hear Steve's mixes as tuned for his ear, and that makes me wonder if he hears differently because of his blindness. They seem... lower... tuned lower, I guess. But the sounds that reach out to the edges, and the little vignette in the middle, very nice.
    The Thrifty Setups in Mah House Big thrifty stereo in the basement w/ my custom SDA-1C (built with help from kind forum members) * Beautiful 1966 MCM GE console upgraded w/ Bluetooth, Dual turntable, and Paradigm speakers in family room * Swanky 1980 Realistic system and great TEAC eq with dancing colored lights in the living room * Ye Olde college stereo in the garage
  • The Allman Brothers Band Live from A&R Studios.

    So good!

    I don't have SDA's anymore but this song should be presented very well on them. Play, "The Peppery man" by Natalie Merchant.

    If you have not heard this selection before? I can say with very high confidence you will like it very much. SDA's should do this song justice.

    ~ In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence. ~
  • is there a SDA playlist set up anywhere that can be shared? That would be awesome
