I don’t know if anyone else has had an opportunity to listen to Torreys yet so here are my first listening findings and observations.
The files did not load correctly the first try, I just had dead air playing, so I reloaded a second time and Torreys took hold.
The first track was Moon River from Jacintha’s / Autumn Leaves album.
The breathiness of her voice was much more natural and less labored, at times with Yale Final it can seem heavy.
Her vocals also took on a much more realistic proportion, they appeared a bit too large with Yale Final.
There was a sweetness to her voice that was not there with Yale Final.
The presentation was scaled further back in space and appeared to occupy more of that space.
The decay of vocals and piano notes extended greater in depth and width with Torreys than Yale Final.
Overall I would say that with this track Torreys transported you to the venue more realistically than Yale Final.
The second track was Hotel California from the Hell Freezes Over album.
At this point I thought that I had lost my listening abilities, but I was correct in what I was hearing.
The left and right channels reversed, yes that’s what I said, reversed!
How the first track could make such an impression with this anomaly I do not know.
Could some other Beta testers who have that track give it a play and report back?
I am nowhere near finished, but that is all for now.
Quick edit: I forgot to mention that after Torreys loads, the DS is muted, not a big deal, but not the same as Yale Final.
