    I just picked this up today. I haven't listened to it all the way through, but my initial impression is that it's a little left-heavy. The vocals, particularly, come from a little left of center throughout what I've sampled (first five tracks). Anyone else have this disc? What are your impressions? Did you notice this on your system? Great album, but left-heaviness is a little distracting. I keep wondering if my speakers are set up properly... [​IMG]

    No left -heaviness on my system Robert. Maybe a little re-calibration with an spl meter wouldn't go amiss ? Between this great album and the prospect of a live Floyd performance upcoming we should all probably recheck [​IMG] Its looking like a pretty good year IMO

    Yeah...I set up my system using Denon's auto setup. Not as precise as an spl, but I had a friend listen to it, and he said the voices were anchored directly in the center. I'm thinking that perhaps I'm slightly more hearing impaired in my right ear than my left. lol. Gotta get that checked out.

    It sounds damned good to me!

    I usually listen to high-res in stereo (haven't set up my uni-player for 5.1) and was surprised to find that there was no high-res stereo mix only PCM stereo...what gives?
