HSU package with VTF 15: Rock Music<> Amps
 
I have lived with my HSU setup 5.1 package , with VTF 15 for a while now.
Running a Onkyo T809 AVR with HTPC build.

The movies are amazing with DTS, TRUE HD etc.

I have been re-exploring some old rock music now, and try to capture the huge sound i had in my 20's...

Question:
Would Pro amplification demonstrate any difference in the pure music ? I have been using 2 channel w/sub of late on vinyl records.

I have a 5.1 system with the HB-1 Mk 2 (one is on its side for the center) and a VTF-3 Mk 4 sub. It's great for movies, but with music I have very mixed feelings. The speakers have an internal resonance that you'll discover if you run a frequency sweep. Some notes are very prominent, and they interact with the natural resonance of my outer ear canals (really!), which makes some music almost painful to hear. I don't recall hearing that with other speakers.

There are lots of discussions on this - its an ongoing and interesting subject. There seems to be agreement, at a high level that MUSIC content vs MOVIES have a varying degree of bass "content".

Movies focus on the LOW LOW end (say 10hz to 20Hz) and the sounds are usually momentary, whereas music frequencies are in a different range (say 60Hz to 100 Hz) for the "bass" content - but are playing throughout the entire track.

My reasoning is very high level, but when we listen to music, we rarely sit on a couch and orient ourselves physically the way we do when watching a movie.

So the "transiency" of music bass notes, varies far more frequently, and this is why HSU has a sub designed for music lovers vs HT - but that is not to say, if you are not a very discerning listener or audiophile, you may not care.

The other thing to consider that could make a difference, is music is not designed to be processed in 5.1 channels - usually 2 channel stereo - so try turning off your processing for 5.1 and see if you notice any difference. you can also try changing your crossover frequency, so you get more of the upper bass range (ie, 100hz down to 20hz) pumped into the sub.

And Music genres, time periods, style etc all vary, and are not all equally bass heavy - lots of factors to consider, so - Experiment and have fun!!
