I've been across the board this evening....Ben Harper 'Diamonds On The Inside', The Black Keys 'Chulahoma' *and* 'The Rubber Factory' ( I *really* like these two guys) and Bob Dylan's 'Modern Times'.
Try as I might, I just can't do the multiple channel music stuff...two channel stereo gives me better depth, dynamics and sound stage than the multi-channel stuff does. Old school, I'm supposin'
Old School works for me! In our old house I had great acoustics and the M3s did the real 3-D bit. I still use the stereo mode if I move the furniature around a bit and squeeze some accuracy outta my sucky room. Otherwise, we just leave it in surround most of the time.
If it were my choice though in an ideal situation, it would be stereo all the way!
....except maybe for the really big classical stuff! The M50s really like classical!!
