OK. Imaging small between the two speakers due to dead room.

Cello Concerto No. 1 In C Hob. Viib/1: II. Adagio-Cadenza by Han-Na Chang & Sächsische Staatskapelle & Giuseppe Sinopoli. https://shz.am/t47793451


Everything sounds "live." Not a fan of this kind of homogenization in speakers.

Same problem and a bit boomy. Maybe some of it is the room size.

This was an organized demo walking through different DACs, and amplifiers. While they were hoping to make the point that better electronics sounded better, that point was lost on these deaf ears. :)

Til Deg by Marthe Wang. https://shz.am/t338965516


Nice. Sounded the same on small system as the large one due to it being a low energy track.
