The great, the stupendous, The Guess Who. Love their music. 4 channel will be great to hear for this, their greatest hits. "American Woman, get away from me!"

Absolutely. A greatest hits mch of any rock band will always be a big sell.
Mine arrives end of December, I think.

Having heard a sneak preview of this one, I agree. Music fans will love this Multichannel SACD!

What do you mean by sneak preview. Have you heard the actual SACD or did you hear it in some other form?

Duh, they don't call Brian (bmoura) the "multichannel maven" for nothing.

Bought an RBCD import of The Guess Who's Greatest Hits some years back and never heard "American Woman" sound so good.

Until.........

Mark, you mention in your review an active sub. However, there is no subwoofer channel with this, is there?

4.0 has NO subwoofer channel. Same with 5.0. AFAIK, there were NO subwoofers in the early 70's when the "QUAD revolution" was extant.

We used real speakers back in those days so didn't need them.

OK, I do have an active sub and it has been reconfirmed and it is due to my Audessy set up.

Off The Grid explains it as this and I have reconfirmed with McIntosh.

In order for Audyssey to be most effective all speakers need to be set to "small" after microphone calibration so if you have your AVR set accordingly the sub will be active on any and all HDMI sourced material, 2.0, 4.0, 5.1 etc. There is far more processing power allocated to bass management when all speakers are set to "small" and the end result is smooth bass response and increased resolution/detail all around. Hope this helps.

I am not saying it is right or wrong, just that it is true.

If I was a purist and not lazy I could switch off the Audessy, while listening to 4.0 but it does not bother me.

My question, Mark: when you set the speakers to small and you have full range speakers (not satellites) wouldn't that effect the amount of wattage going to the speakers and affect the overall sound quality?

Somehow, doesn't make sense.

I assume you have large speakers in the front and are using smaller in ceiling rear speakers?

Enlighten me?
