@ddd1 You certainly point our one of the often overlooked challenges, miking. Got to first collect the sound before one can even think about reproducing it. I'm sure we'll get there. I wonder what the arguments will be about in Audiogon a hundred years from now. I think we can assume the power cord debate will never be settled

@surfcat Totally agree. Look, I’m a purist at heart and would always first skew to using room treatments to fix the all-important and oft-neglected room first and then look at DSP if absolutely still necessary, but BACCH looks like a totally different animal and the reviews from the people who’ve heard it sound amazing. Honestly, my first choice would be for a driver that’s a round orb that recreates sound like how we hear instruments in live space (Lansche?). Yeah, i know that’s not the way it’s recorded, but still. Then there’s Ohm, MBL, German Physics, etc. that seem to do a damn good job of generating that result but that can create a more diffuse imagery, which may actually be very accurate as that’s more how I hear live music. So maybe BACCH is overly focused and hyper real — think LED versus a good plasma HDTV — but it still sure sounds intriguing and I’d love to hear it, especially if I can get the basic essentials for under $1000. MBLs would cost me a truckload more $$$, that’s fer sure.
Let y’all know when my playing about with surround Walsh gets a bit deeper into it.
Even with just a 2ch source, with current mixing, interesting things occur....
...even in a crude space. Linkwitz himself said ’ignore the room’, and I’m certainly attempting that....*L*
Got to... ;)
BACCH 'sounds' interesting, under my circumstance.....thanks for the hint. 👍👌
