He writes about a bunch of snake oil products and mentions:
Quantum's QX4 Electro Magnetic Field Stabilizers... :shock: :shock:
and that they work :shock: :shock: when tested on his wife.
Fred and what the heck? #-o
Now, forgive me for being such a pleb, but I have always thought that for instruments like a pipe organ, the "recorded space" is a part of the music itself. Or does he want to suggest removing the organ to an acoustically benign environment?Turning to J.S. Bach's "Concerto in d, after Vivaldi", Stereophile Test CD (CD, Stereophile STPH-002-2), the system could now resolve the notes generated by the Flentrop organ pipes distinct from the strong reverberation of the stone surfaced Busch-Reisinger Museum, a small chapel in which it was recorded. Previously the pipe tones and reverberation blended together rendering the system unable to resolve the recorded space separate from the music itself. I could now even hear a slight chuffing of the pipes as each key of the organ was depressed
What a tosser. And sadly, no better nor worse than the majority of them. Sales staff, not journalists, and certainly not a reviewer.
