Did I say it was an impossible room? I may have spoken too fast. While I may have felt the bass sounded better in the hallway, sitting down treated me to a very “hi-fi” presentation. Sure, the digital was remarkably easy to listen to. Sure, the Dynaudio way with space is lovely. Sure, the BMC amps sound clean. Sure… but the room was hot, a stereo is a stereo, and much-needed coffee was calling to me.
Revisiting the room turned out to have been a great idea. The only part of my notes that I can decipher say “QRP 45.” The BMC MCCI phono preamp seemed to bring the system to its feet, easily transforming a demo into something that I might sit around and listen to for an album side while entirely forgetting to take notes.
