Well, I was wearing shorts which is something that I normally don't do unless it is really warm, & it is. We broke a record yesterday here at the Comox airport out on the cape, 31.7C, but at our house it was 36C on our deck.

Eventually I will remedy my speakers of many colours, although quite frankly, they look just fine - especially the classy 800s...

Actually, the duck & the other objects are not for looks & I would rather not have them there at all.

They are my feeble attempts at cat control to try to keep my 4 felines out of the innards of my HT stand...

I finally got a chance to calibrate my system yesterday - 4 times to get it right.

It really works best if both subs are turned ON, ha! After the third calibration I took off the grills during WOTW demo & it sounded great as it was; however, I saw that the drivers in the left sub were working furiously whereas there was nothing from the right. Oh no, I thought - until I looked at the back & saw no green light. Anyway, out came the Audyssey mic to do it all over once again.

To start, I set the Subs' Gains at 12 0'clock (half way) - too much for Audyssey as it set -12 Db. Tried 10 o'clock & that gave -6 Db which is perfect. Interestingly the Sub Distance (actual is 11') was set at 33' whereas my original Velos were around 14'. After some reading, Audyssey is measuring the delay caused by the sub circuitry/DSP & automatically corrects for it. Best to leave it alone - or so they say.

Anyway, the first half hour of WOTW at -10 Db is most impressive. Being on a concrete slab, the floor does not shake but everything else does! What amazes me is how easily the M22s keep up with these monster subs - excellent combo for HT.

I don't often use this setup for music; however, musically my SACDs sound absolutely superb through my Sony BDP, although the 'surround' vs 'stereo' mixes are a very different listening experience. 'Surround' puts the listener on stage in the center of the musicians whereas 'Stereo' puts one in the audience. While 'Surround' is a great novelty, I really prefer 2 Ch 'Stereo' & my SACDs will return back upstairs to my audio only systems.

I no longer assess my system as 'modest', ha!...

Tam, now's the occasion for you to play Carpenter's Revolutionary SACD at Ref. Level -1.5 dB. if you haven't done so yet.

you'll hear it like never before, and i find this kind of music much more satisfying than listening to vlf bass in movies like WOTW.
