just making sure everything is setup properly with the new Yammy receiver with some Elliot Scheiner trusty old faithfuls..

Doobie Brothers : "The Captain & Me" (DVD-A)
Grover Washington Jr., : "Winelight" (DVD-A)
Toto : "IV" (SACD)
Steely Dan : "Gaucho" (SACD)

even though i used to prefer what YPAO did to Surround Music to all the front to back balance mucking about Audyssey seemed to do back when i was running Denons and Yamahas at the same time, after all these years and umpteen receivers later i'm finally coming to the conclusion i think i prefer these AVRs (once the setup mic's done the distances and stuff) with just about everything shut off, apart from the speakers themselves of course!! :LOL:

"you know i won't hold you back now..." :p

How's the surround? A lot of these were 60s recordings.

Ginuwine The Life SACD (5.1 PCM 88.2 kHz), discrete surround no doubt. Hitting the spot today, plenty of low end with nice resolution. Anyone know of Jimmy Douglass? Highly recommended, if still available.
think he maybe mixed at least one Missy Elliott 5.1 album? Douglass definitely mixed one of my all-time favourite Quads, The Brecker Brothers' "Back To Back", its wonderful 🥰

Ray Conniff THEME FROM S.W.A.T./SEND IN THE CLOWNS [Columbia/Vocalion QUAD SACD Two~Fer] A lot of Ray's 70's QUAD albums were engineered from the ground up to showcase the new format and these two albums are UBER DISCRETE evidence of Conniff's commitment!
