Newbie here (first post after my self intro)
I have found my way to the StudioMaster forum by the desire to hear one of my favorite albums, Santana Caravanserai, in quad. So, what are your thoughts on that record and also Lotus with the StudioMaster(s)?
So far the new v2 is my frontrunner in building out quad capability for the Columbia recordings on quad LP.
...Well I turned on our 10 channel 120 W per channel Y4 , 4 electrostatic speaker plus dual dual 5 inch woofer (behind the TV ) setup in my newly renovated lower lounge (the cinema area) complete with the 70 inch Sony TV and we watched...
I guess I need to break down and sell some of my GOS double/triple titles I've had stashed away for years; those electrostatic speakers would go nicely in my little Quad room (do I really need a sub?) -waiting impatiently and unapologetically for the Involve pre ampDear Surroundophiles
As some of yous guys may know I have not been my usual brilliant/ charming and jolly self this year-you know Ticker stuffing up, operations and the big zap, knee totally pooched, operations, COVID, our solar battery company Zenaji, a years worth of renovations and essentially camping for that year, coping with DAWSON (that alone can send you bonkers) and other even worse shit. I have not listened to any music or home cinema for over a year, and even now my main system is not in operation as more renovations are happening. Frankly I dropped the ball a bit.
Well I turned on our 10 channel 120 W per channel Y4 , 4 electrostatic speaker plus dual dual 5 inch woofer (behind the TV ) setup in my newly renovated lower lounge (the cinema area) complete with the 70 inch Sony TV and we watched "being the Ricardos" of Netflix and from the very beginning I was amazed at the tasteful use of surround that was not BOOM BANG THUD but totally lifelike. At no time did I detect the speaker positions and everyone in the room was completely centered on the image. There was some IN CONTEXT deep bass that sounded perfect in the small lower lounge. The separation was outstanding with zero image smear. I was in the movie!
Also importantly no one got a headache- so typical of most modern surround systems. Really, I personally forgot how good the Y4 actually sounds even though the speakers are tiny. I confess I am spoilt by the big stuff but wow it was great tonight. Oh and no center channel- yet the image was identical and consistent for all.
There must be a market for this stuff, yes I might be a tad biased but the above is all true and real. I think I have awoken from my slumbers.

The Cuban music was great!!!I guess I need to break down and sell some of my GOS double/triple titles I've had stashed away for years; those electrostatic speakers would go nicely in my little Quad room (do I really need a sub?) -waiting impatiently and unapologetically for the Involve pre amp
Was there some good Little Ricky Cuban music that decoded nicely in that show?
Lucy and his Desilu Productions was what brought about the whole Star Trek franchise; which I have countless hours soaking up off a boob tube!
I hardly think you've dropped any kind of ball with all you've been through-
You Rock Chucky
Yep I like the Stressless stuff, I have the papa bear chair for lil ol me and a baby bear one for my wife (all 100 lbs of her).Hi Chucky I see you like Stressless furniture too.
I have a captains chair with matching footstool and one of those little round tables attached.
Would love to hear your system.
Are the functions of the SM built into your new preamp or do you need one as an accessory?
