Stunning Sound from Music Lovers and Musical Surroundings
Of course this had something to do with the music we were listening to, but I also think that the smaller Sophias were better locked-in with the smaller room, providing more immediate and more physical low frequencies.
The portrayal of James Blake’s “Wilhelms Scream” (which has been playing in my mind all day) was fast, weighty, and present, with very fun spatial effects. And “Lost and Found” on Amon Tobin’s ISAM produced massive waves of low-bass energy that coursed through the room and seemed to push the walls outward.
“This is stunning,” said Wilson’s Peter McGrath. “Stunning!”
And I agreed. This was one of my favorite rooms of the show.
