Using only my front 2 speakers I played all different types of music from various sources (CD, DVD, LP and Ipod-both lossless and lossy) and I was again amazed!!
I know it seems like this is too good to be true but each track (didn't matter which one) made my stereo fronts wrap around me. I actually had to make sure I wasn't hearing my two rear speakers. It was the wrap effect of the box with no assistance from the rears. Best of all was no coloration in the sound.
Heard sounds in various artists' recordings that I didn't realise were even there. Amazing clarity and sound quality! This is how musicians wanted you to hear their music. All the music came with excellent presence and on many occasions, sounds appeared which had not been apparent before. The piano and guitar sounded like they were in the room and the clapping from a live audience seemed to move around the room.
Incredible sound and something I've never experienced before. Could hear the layering of the instruments fluently and straight up blew me away. Definitely recommend Involve and very excited to see these guys shake up the industry. If you can afford it, and have a use for it, I give it a very strong recommendation! I had the pleasure to hear the (Surround Master) unit in question at Ron's place, the quad sound was very clear and separation is excellent.
I have played Dolby surround CDs with this unit and it gives a better surround than Dolby. "The Involve decoder (Surround Master) manages to do the separation with essentially no "pumping effect (sounds getting audibly softer or quieter as they're processed). This is the real magic of the unit. But I can tell you that I'm 100% satisfied with what it is and thrilled to own it. It sounds great and makes it fun to listen to recordings with fresh ears.
If you like surround sound music at all, this is pretty much a must-have as it's the best stereo-to-surround processor yet. It does remarkable things but never pumps or makes anything sound too processed or non-musical.
I'm pretty thrilled with it. "Last week I had the opportunity to hear Jim Croce's "Photographs & Memories Lp as decoded through the Involve unit (Surround Master), and it sounded freaking spectacular. No joke - best rendition I've ever heard, and that includes a pristine Q8 on an Akai CR-80D-SS deck. I must also say that (Dolby) DPLIIx is not even close to the performance of your unit (the Surround Master) when it is calibrated properly. Haven't heard a dud yet..
I have a receiver equipped with DTS NEO X.. It is a joke compared to The Surround Master.Please don't laugh or smirk at me when I say that I have listened to my QS albums hundreds of times and have found them to be a bit on the smeary and disappointing side. For the first time, through The Surround Master, they sound specific. I have finally heard a discrete sounding sound field.
It has turned everything that I listened to into sonic bliss-to-bumpers-shaboom. Next I listened to Cirque Du Soleil's IRIS. I saw and heard this at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood..It was a surround spectacular in person. A mix of live and recorded music surrounding the audience. This recording duplicates the experience. It also produces a height effect and a 360 degree sound field. And The Surround Master extracts every bit of detail... The Surround Master placed instruments at the speakers, in between... The Surround Master SM-465 is, at its price, a dream come true for anyone in love with multi-channel sound.. It is clear that the folks at Involve Audio have given us an extraordinary chance to experience sound at its best. If you are in search of the perfect four channel synthesizer this is it! I don't believe there is anything better! Dolby PL II XYZABC etc.
They all fall before it. It creates a discrete soundfield from most two channel sources that is superior to any other unit or algorithm available that I have heard. The 4 and 5.1 modes are state of the art.
That's the end of that! The most significant thing I heard listening in its surround modes, is its ability to image along the right and left side wall! The images are strong and solid... I use side channel speakers and a separate processor to achieve this imaging.. THE SURROUND MASTER unit does it, most of the time, without my side channel speakers engaged!
The Surround Master is not subtle. This is total immersion into the recording. One of the tracks that never ceases to make me tap my toe is'Simple Song'.
Guitars were coming from everywhere and unlike some surround formats I've heard, it wasn't losing any of the detail I normally would expect. "I enjoy all kinds of music and folks here have no doubt heard me say "Its all about the music - well, the Surrround Master is nothing short of amazing. Listening to music with the Surround master in place really engages you with the music - it's immersion - like swimming in the music. It took me a while to write this review because once I heard some of my music through this gear, I wanted to go through my whole music collection and listen to everything again, hearing nuances and subtleties in the music I had not noticed before. I could go on and on and namedrop more albums I've heard hundreds of times that just opened up for me, connecting me so much deeper with the music and tempting me to spend more time immersed in music I had only listened to before.
I had a Yamaha Surround receiver with all kinds of room modes that added echo and ambience, my Integra has similar settings for concert hall and beer garden and small club - I've tried them and just didn't care for them, and turned those effects off pretty quickly. The Surround Master is different and really brings you into the music in a new way. As I've said - the SurroundMaster is highly recommended for the absolutely lush way it takes 2 channel music sources and fills the room with surround sound from old or new media. My family loves the way it works.
It is much more effective and less gimmicky than either Dolby Pro Logic IIx or Circle Surround. I must say, the Surround Master processing often creates a surround field even superior to many DTS-HD MA 5.1 tracks. Not only was there an excellent surround signal extracted from the original, but there was a more seamless surround field to the sides than achieved with most multichannel sources, even with my surround speakers to the rear.There were not any artifacts or unusual equalization of the sound at any point. In addition to providing a much better surround field (using the stereo layer) from those multichannel SACDs lacking a sufficient signal on the surrounds, the Surround Master created terrific sound fields from older 2-channel Dolby Surround CDs, UHJ Ambisonic CDs and LPs, and Circle Surround CDs. If you've already discovered the terrific surround placement you can achieve with the standard stereo releases of the Beatles and Beach Boys using Pro Logic IIx, you're in for a real treat with the stepped-up spatial positioning of the Surround Master.
I have experience now using the Surround Master, Dolby Surround, Auro 3D and 2D, Neo6, PLIIx and Logic7 as upmixers. The latter two are gone from my system, but they had their issues. The other five upmixers remain. If I was forced to keep only one upmixer, it would be the Surround Master. SM: It's the only one that is truly different than the others.
It always does no harm to the presentation. It does not bloat the bass frequencies.
Material that yields unimpressive upmixing can be remedied simply by juicing up the volume of the rears. Dolby Surround often exhibits a thinness and "phaseyness" resulting in an ambient mess. On my Marantz AVR, the only adjustment is Center Spread.I wish there were some other adjustments because I either need to make tweeks or I don't like what Dolby Surround is supposed to sound like. Auro 3D often exhibits mid-bass bloat which cheapens the sound. It can be corrected by reducing the Auro 3D Strength setting.
Unfortunately, on some material, the strength must be lowered to the point where the presentation makes me wonder why I need all these speakers in the ceiling. Perhaps messing with the crossover point of the ceiling speakers may help, but will doing so adversely affect Dolby Atmos material? I would say that it does-no-harm but is not nearly as impressive as Auro 3D at its best.Neo 6: I've actually become more appreciative of Neo6 as executed by the Oppo 205. I find it to be a very acceptable upmixer. It does tweek the bass freqencies a bit, but I've never found it to be intrusive as with Auro 3D.
