On some recordings it is so much more live than CD 16/44 and also the sound stage is so opened up, great stuff. Of course as always the quality of the recordings themselves matters the most, but I am getting addicted to this high-res stuff!
Having listened to top line dCS stuff on such files I know what you are talking about. The recorded information flows noticeably better. The nice thing is that the simple concept DIY speakers still got steam to show that.

Yes they certainly do. I hope to find some curtains to help my room. This will further help to hear how capable they really are. I might also try some other speakers just for fun, but it is a lot of work and trouble involved in that.

Default Interesting.

Since I have gone into the high res. world of digital audio, I found some nice info online regarding Norah Jones "Feels like home" album. It said that this cd recording has some problems with "clipping piano" sound and a little "shouting voice" which is exactly what I heard at home. This made me suspecting the speakers and for sure I could hear that it made the cabinet resonate so I fixed that to some extent as I told you in this thread. This info online also said that the high res. version online (24/192kHz PCM) is way better and I can conclude it is since I downloaded this and also her album "Come away with me" a few days ago before because I was curious. It is way better than the CD: no clipping, more detail and air and a better flow and also sounds calmer. It seems the tired2way with my filter components (was rather expensive) is very revealing.
Nice work from me and of course Salas and Mikvous.

Really revealing experiment.

This proves that listening is the most important step in tuning any build

Yes I agree RCruz. If you have a good listening room to evaluate in. The room is very important.

I think they were listening to the same CD with Norah Jones that I did:
