Picked up one of these here Sonic Hologram Generators at the thrift store A few weeks ago and finally got around to hooking it up today.
I know I posted this as a review but I haven't had enough time to make many serious comments yet so here's some quick first impressions:
#1- , , :p
(reference material-Vinyl "Die Zauberflote" Berlin Philharmonic Karajan conducting. Deutsche Grammophon)
Sound stage was just blown apart. Not concert hall exactly... more like you're sitting in the pit. Wife even got big eyes and said "wow" Kinda fun.
#2- , :o , :(
(reference material-CD The Asylum Choir- Look Inside)
Certain percussion bits sounded like they were coming from WAY out in left field. Fun at first until I noticed that the center of the sound-stage felt very weak. Then in the more "straight laced" (ie not psychedelic) songs it got just plain annoying.
#3-:o , :p ,
(reference material-Ipod Vampire Weekend "Mansard Roof")
Once again, kinda fun but in combo with the heavy reverb on the recording things got a bit "bathroom" sounding.
I'll continue to play with placement and whatnot but for now I call "gimmick"
Albeit a neat one.
So I've never listened to any of y'all's beloved SDA's before, is this effect similar?
Ahhh crap..............I just saw that i misspelled the title and I cant change it.....
and I thought i might look clever.......:)
