Yesterday we installed the new Meridian Ultra DAC in our listening room. Mathew downloaded a MQA recording from the 2L website and dropped it into our Sooloos Library.
In my 35 plus years in the audio business I’ve heard a lot of hype about new formats. The promise of “Holy Grails” of recording reproduction I’ve seen come and go too many times. So I was a bit skeptical yet I had faith in Bob Stewart’s ability to pull this one off. If you don’t know about MQA, here is a link to a good explanation of how this format works.
The reader’s digest version is for the first time in the history of recorded audio, we can now experience in our homes an exact uncompressed “perfect” duplication of the original recording mastered in the studio. Pretty big deal to us music lovers to say the least. What does it sound like? All I can say is in our over 11,000 Sooloos album collection, it is easily far and above anything else we could demonstrate for you. Please feel free to call us to arrange a personal audition or stop in to have a listen for yourself.
Grandma, Grandma, “Look how big that screen is. The picture quality is awesome.” After playing on his Xbox for a day, his comments were “I love that room– the speakers and subwoofer were incredible—I want them, especially the subwoofer. “ When his brother came the next afternoon, he walked into the room and said “WOW”. WOW is right, that is an apt description on the home theatre room at Nuts. Now, it is even more impressive with the new 4k projector. Come see for yourself. If the kids say WOW, I am sure you will too.
Early this morning we received our first pair of the new FOCAL Sopra no.3.
This is the long awaited flagship of the Sopra series.

What a remarkable accomplishment from our friends at Focal.
We could not be happier in their beauty, price value and sonic presentation.

Come in to Nuts About Hi-Fi and experience the newest technology in home theater. Previous versions of surround sound audio formats have limited audio engineers with trying to position a sound effect by adjusting speaker volume levels. Dolby Atmos is surround sound that brings another level of dimension to your audio. By adding a height layer, Atmos adds a new vertical dimension. Now it is possible to position sound to any point of the room. Instead of that helicopter flying around you, it can now pass over you while descending to land just in front of you. The amazing details of sound placement must be witnessed to be believed. We will be glad to demonstrate the possibility of Dolby Atmos for you in our showroom, please stop by sometime and have a listen.
