We will likely never know. He's one of those people who think people still have a right to privacy.

*Pfff* As if...

Anyone agree?


I don't know about better, but it's certainly more within my grasp.

OK, here's one:

JohnK always touts listening to two-channel music in multi-channel surround as your receiver will extract all the natural ambiance cues and direct them to the appropriate place in the (now surrounding) soundfield. I can understand this with orchestral and classical selections, which (almost solely) enjoys.

But what about Rock and pop recordings? There IS no natural ambiance as the instruments are close miked, recorded on different tracks (to be adjusted by panning after) or recorded on separate days.

The receiver might extract info that it sends to the surrounds, but is there really anything natural or correct about it in terms of simulating a live performance?

No. Next question.


Edit: but seriously... \:\)

If the recording engineer mixing the separate tracks has added any reverb or spatialization effects to the mix, then the receiver's software will detect it and move those spatial cues to the appropriate channels. As for trying to recreate a live performance, that's not really the ultimate goal of DP LIIx.

Resurrecting an old thread!

A John Mayer track just came up on Pandora.

Every time I think of John Mayer, I think about how so many people dislike him for some reason.

I must have missed the memo. Does he abuse animals or something?

Sorry Mark, I don't hate him but I find most of his music monotonous. I respect him highly as a musician but something about his voice makes my brain want to shut down.

Plus if Tom doesn't like him, I gotta go with the cool kids.
