If you have Tidal, the mix is intact, and yes, it's a blast. In Tidal you must search for "the immaculate collection" because Tidal's search function is a lot like Yahoo search in the 90's (it's close to useless). The album does not show up if you search for Madonna and click albums.


QSound may be a parlor trick, but as mentioned, it's really fun trick, and if you've never heard it before, you'll like it. Sit in the sweet spot, speakers need to be equidistant from ears for max effect. It's neat.

Thanks for the tip. Tidal is something else. This board is no trick. As good as many systems are, usually they do a great 2 dimensional re-creation of the music, but this daughter board creates a 3 dimensional sense of the music. I feel the musicians in the room and their intentions. Instruments gives players feedback and I wonder if somehow this board imparts some of that info. Its eerie and magical, especially in the sweet spot!

Looks like a toroid under the square cover in the center and 2x60,000uF filters + rectifiers mounted to the front panel.

It makes for a neat build, doesn't it? Perhaps you could make toast on it, too.

Yes the Toroid is under the plate, it helps with hum. Since this pic I have added a blue LED to the front panel from the +Ve supply.
