Decide to do a little listening today. Got the sub crossed over at 60 Hz where the LX16's drop off. This takes place by a switch on the back. Easy peasy. Tried it at 80 Hz, 60 is better. Also tried analog vs optical outs on the CD player. Optical sounds better. Started of with Stings Ten Summoners Tales. It's easier to discern the individual instruments and here I'll jump ahead on the play list. Playing Heart Shaped World by Chris Issac the track Wicked Game at the beginning there's a triangle in the right channel not very loud but as soon as you hear it you know what it is. I had never heard it before and I've played it a lot. Summoners Tales is a reference CD that I'm very familiar with and the sound stage is nice and wide with good instrument placement. The last song starts out with everything in the middle and when the rest of the instruments come in it expands outward, never really noticed that before. A good tell for me was when Shape of My Heart started it was so impressive that I felt emotion well and my eyes moisten, it sounded really good. Next up was the LP AWB from who else but The Average White Band. Now I can say this is the quietest phono section I've ever heard but the one caveat is there no adjustment for your MM or MC cartridge so with a low output MC like the Denon 103 you have to compensate with volume so it's good that the phono section is quiet. I need to listen to more LP's before I come to a conclusion on the phono section. Heart Shaped World is right in this receivers wheel house. It sounds wonderful. In Blue Spanish Sky the guitar strings chime and sustain are spot on and Wicked Game that's one of the sexiest songs out there and the sound was lush just like it should. So far so good. Do I wish it had a some of the Luxmans tube like quality. Sure but that's what the Luxman is for. The RR2160 is a different animal and a very capable one. There will be more as I explore it's capability's further.
