Hello Seaton Sound and hello fellow admirers! Neither my life’s journey, nor my audio one, are complete but they are drawing to an end. Over 46 years of appreciating music, honing listening skills, and matching components—along with careful speaker setup and appropriate acoustics treatment—have all brought me closer to my dream system.
My 2ch system is currently “voiced” on the warm side of neutral to tame strident recordings. It’s able to remain engaging and musical on about 85% of my collection. The demo material isn’t quite as impressive as when voiced for higher accuracy/resolution, but I don’t repeatedly listen to 2ch sound bytes any more than I loop LFE soundtracks.
I’m extremely happy with my 2ch system and the way it serves up dimensional soundscapes that wash away cares of the day. My speakers pull the audiophile disappearing act under the right circumstances, and produce quality bass with authority. They’re rated from 25Hz to 12kHz +/-1.0dB target and an in-room response of 24Hz-18kHz +/-0.75dB!
Very punchy and articulate, but nowhere near the capabilities of a SubMersive down low. It’s a cliche but Mark’s reputation precedes him. I’ve yet to hear anything negative about him or his products. Just the opposite—I’m excited to be joining the SubMersive family (I’ve a pair of Vintage Cherry F2+/- SubMersives on order)! I can hardly wait to welcome them into my system. Just when you thought it doesn’t get any better than this!
More to come!
