Ojgalli, thanks for your response.
It doesn't have the acoustic information needed to recreate a natural sound-field with the width, depth, and height you want to hear.
But, while informative what I want to hear is not just true stereo. That has it's place and time and listen to my Jazz records for this I guess. What I don't want to hear is an image bewtween my speakers that doesn't seem to be between them so narrowly. That seems to be the sound coming out of some newer(as in release times) records. Why is this I ask?
Ratbb2, thank you as well, I like it when my speakers dissappear and players have space and my new tube pre has helped considerably with this. Its just that some records have this, well, I have described it already. Is my VTA Correct ? I've given my best and neutral (level) seems to be best last time I messed with it when my old pre was in. That would be really cool to ba able to adjust this on the fly with all the differences in thickness. When I put on say Warnes-The Hunter, Dead Can Dance-Anastasis, my whole room is part of my sound-the speakers are not totally gone but the effect is basically there. Then I put on Jim Hall's-Concerto and man I had to call to complain, it was like mono. (real bummer here) Real Estate-Atlas another one. On the other hand Cat Stevens-Izitso, just wonderful! Also, Iron and Wine's-Kiss Eachother Clean( newer modern release btw) also wonderful. So what gives there seems to be some anomalies that just don't make sense.
