Binaural recorded hi-fi video.

This is an interesting way of attempting to capture what a system sounds like. No talking head giving you sales bullshit. The young lady who does these works for Stereophile and has done some of the Fremer stuff.

Very interesting/quirky, I think that Jana? (the young lady) has done an excellent job in trying to "tell the story" of a system, it's owner and the space it occupies.

Only downside is the choice of music - does nothing for me! (can't help but think it is chosen to make system sound good/make owner of system appear "sophisticated") and the thought that all of her future recordings will feature the same four pieces puts me off.

Good video and a refreshing, open approach - look forward to more of Jana's reports.

I think the music played has a lot to do with licencing issues. Probably easier to get permission for music owned by a small audiophile label. Would certainly like to hear some mainstream rock through the system but there is a risk of Youtube censoring the sound.
