Imaging and the first violin(s)
It really is a fantastic recording. But to be clear, it's not mic bleed. The purpose of an omni-directional mic is to pick up sound from all directions, 360°. This is minimal mic'ing and it's intended to sound more realistic by picking up ambience...

On second listen, there’s no doubt that the violin is at full gain in both speakers. My guess is they are using omni-directional mic’s which have a wide pickup patten. This, combined with the mixing of the performance to fill the soundstage would ...

@ahofer The Ravel is a beautiful piece. And on the 2nd movement I do hear the first violin moving from left side to left center during the early pizzicato.I checked a YouTube video and both violins plus the viola are performing pizzicato throughou...

I have a pretty decent CD collection of string quartets, quintets, trios and the sound of individual instruments has always been properly placed on the soundstage.Sometimes with piano, I'll notice that the sound has moved slightly left or right bu...

I agree on the importance of room treatments. My listening is comprised of about 90% classical (all types). I’ve never experienced the first violin or any individual instrument moving in the soundstage. Less defined, yes, depending on the mix.Room... 
Questions for Rogue Cronus Magnum Owners
Get that hum fixed pronto. In my experience with owning a Rogue and spending time at a local dealer, the earliercomponents had a more tubey sound. Now most sound very neutral and clean as you describe.I think out of the box you're hearing the soni... 
To Equi-Core or Not to Equi-Core? That is the question!
I hear ya. I am one of those people based on past experience when I was first starting out. It was a learning experience.Very much considering a purchase of the 1800. Thanks. 
To Equi-Core or Not to Equi-Core? That is the question!
Thanks, Bob. That tells me there's no cross contamination from digital devices.Walter messaged me; all service will be performed at the factory in CA. 
To Equi-Core or Not to Equi-Core? That is the question!
I sent Walter a message asking about warranty and if the factory will provide service for Equi-Core. Waiting to hear. Very good price for the [email protected] , regarding the 1800, are the receptacles isolated? Can you plug analogue and digital into ... 
Qobuz Users Update?
I’m very pleased with Qobuz. I did the free trial with Tidal, Deezer, and Qobuz. Couldn’t find much in the classical genre on Tidal, so I went with Qobuz. Excellent classical catalogue which includes not only recent recordings, but many of the gre... 
Take up drums at age 56?
I understand. Get more control between your left and right hand with rudiments. IME, the coordination on the kit that comes first is right hand, left hand, right leg. Coordination of the high hat is next, so dont worry too much.And since you're a ... 
I'm putting to rest worrying about sibilance
That's a good idea to compare different pressings. Look at the matrix numbers to find the different production runs, pressing plants, or for reissues.Discogs has every release listed. 
Take up drums at age 56?
@n80  Didn't you say the music shop offers lessons? It would be a tremendous help getting started if you sat in with another drummer.You can do rudiments on your own. 
What a sad world we now live in.......
@uberwaltz  Don't you live in the UK? All my friends in England still buy and listen to CDs as their primary source of music. Of course sales have dropped drastically, but all the stats being quoted on this thread are for US only.I get your point ...
