Resolution Audio Cantata Music Center/m100/Pont Neuf system

After a short while, your listening begins to open out more, and you start to notice that what applied to that one instrument actually applies to the lot of them, and you are just struggling to take it all in. Pretty soon, you can progress to complex, multi-tracked music like the Innervisions album by Stevie Wonder [Motown, CD], taking in the whole experience in one hit. And it really is an experience; on a good set of speakers, you are in front of those faders listening to every last part of that recording, good, bad, or indifferent. The image is as wide as the recording, the dynamics are unaffected by the electronics, and practically everything just moves out of the way to let the music through.

Standalone or as team players, the Resolution Audio equipment works well. The Cantata Music Center gives great digital in all its guises – from CD to iTunes to servers in one. And the m100 proves big, detailed sound need not come from amplifiers the size of car engines. This just sounds like music was always supposed to sound, and is highly recommended!
