I mean, you should hear the debates/arguments for/against using the LFE in music mixing. Or how/when to use bass management. So many variables to consider! Most people have crap playback anyway, surround audio makes it that much harder to mix for a real world scenario.


Must be an interesting time to be working the the field.

I hadn’t thought about it that way. I hope Blu-ray breaths new life into multi-channel music. There’s just so much cool stuff they could do with it.

I agree, years ahead!

Oh, I don't! I'm planning on using M2's for my bedroom surrounds since, I believe, that the QS8s would create too much dispersion in that smaller space.
I think for smaller spaces I would go with the QS4s, Which is my plan for my bedroom. They do not seem to throw the sound around as much as the QS8's, inspite of the same design. The drivers just do not move as much air thus slightly less dispersion.

I'm sorry to have kept you waiting Seeking... no my sub situation as of right now is still in limbo. I will surely update the congregation here when something has been established.

The great thing about owning the M80's is, with music you'll barely miss a sub, if you do at all. I'm not sure what you're tastes im music are, I listen to everything from Neil Diamond and Elton John to The Crystal Method and Marylin Manson. I was just listening to 'Any Given Sunday' by Moby on 95% full blast... SPIN CHILLING!!!!

The thing I LOVE about Industrial music is they play a full range speaker to it's extremes. They throw in bass, midbass, upper range, and they use left/right effects to the max. To me, finding out if a speaker is the real poop required two kinds of test music, Industial and classical.

If a speaker can tackle both of these genre without breaking a sweat, then you know you have a winner on your hands. And the M80's play both with authority.

"Industrial Music"?


Pardon-ez-moi for my ig-na-ance, I've never heard this expression before. Is it played on heat exchanger or sumthin'.

Nine Inch Nails would probably be a more popular (less pure?) example of the genre.

Close.

The Crystal Method, Prodigy, Psycic TV, Moby, Rob Zombie, Ministry... These are some Industrial artists. Also known as 'Techno'.

Or better yet, Canada's very own Skinny Puppy.

And their offshoot project Download is quite amazing sonically.

Anyone heard Squarepusher? Check out his album 'Go Plastc' for the ultimate audio test cd... from HELL!

Seriously, you'll be astonished at what frequencies your speakers can reproduce playing that disc.

Well, maybe not exactly 'Techno', but sort of a techno approach to metal. Make sense?
