    There are many classics that were recorded in analog and have been remastered for Atmos (Abbey Road for example).

    Nice... I am not 100% sure where I will go with this but I thought it was great to have the option. My original plan was to be able to take those that I only have in vinyl with me but you guys are giving me ideas.

    I’m looking for a display case for my 2nd VPI 12.7 tonearm. Just basically want to keep it out of harms way. One tonearm has a stereo cartridge and the other a mono cartridge so I go back and forth frequently. Any recommendations?

    This line from the release makes it appear the music needs to be recorded with Spatial Audio. 'Spatial Audio gives artists the opportunity to create immersive audio experiences for their fans with true multidimensional sound and clarity.'

    is the secret sauce completely within a spatial audio file such that any two-channel system can realize the immersive effect ...or, do the spatial audio files require specialized hardware to process them in order to achieve the effect?

    Next step is rough cutting the Walnut to pieces with 1-3 legs. This prevents milling a lot of unnecessary wood.

    Interesting they refer to it an "Audiophile Accessory". Seems like speaker cables are a necessity. I think of accessories as, unneeded bling that you choose to draw attention.
