dCS product launch at A&L Audio Station (Bangsar Village)
dCS, the manufacturer of one of the most expensive components around, will have a product launch tomorrow (Dec 15) from 1pm to 5pm at A&L Audio Station (Bangsar Village). Audiophiles are welcome to attend.
Now that Spatial Audio is the talk of the town, it is worth noting that while Apple Music's Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos is best enjoyed in a multi-channel Atmos-enabled AV system, Spatial Audio is also available as two-channel music files on Roon/Tidal.
Ever since Apple Music launched its lossless files and Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos music on June 7, audiophiles and (especially) AV enthusiasts have been all excited by the immersive sound. However, the Apple Music Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos is available only within the Apple ecosphere.
Two weeks ago, I installed Roon for a free trial to test it out. At about the same time, someone posted a video by Steve Guttenberg of Audiophiliac on YouTube about "Is recorded music (mostly) too bright?" Steve opined that most music is bright because they are EQed to "sound exciting" since flat can be boring. "But is it all too much?" he asked.
