Bacch SP ???

Did anyone listen to the Bacch SP system at Axpona?  I am very curious about this technology.


I was there at Axpona. I did not want to invest my time studying the technology until listening. Did it create a 3D soundstage? Yes, it did but they were using active speakers of unknown quality they did not mention the source(was I suppose to know? is it the Bacch?) and the content(music?) was gimmick laden. From the little I have read it brings out nuances and spatial cues already in the recording and spotlights them. Does nothing for resolution/tonal balance/timbre ect. I can only speak for myself but purchasing better gear and working on room acoustics/power treatment and.vibration control is a better way to improve your system. Don’t assume this will make a $10k system into a $20k system or a $50k system to near reference level. IMO opinion this appears to be an updated version of a graphic equalizer. I understand audio is just a "Grand Illusion" so what is wrong with altering the recording to one taste/likes. If you have that mindset regarding HEA and are a multi channel/video type give it a try. Lastly lets see how this technology evolves maybe in 5 years there will be a vast improvement or it will be just another forgotten gimmick we all will chuckle about.

@dayglow were you able to go through the Binaural headphone and camera setup. Or sit in one of the two center seats?

@bg1968 Sat in a front center seat then moved to center middle to see if more 3D sound and depth/layering was created. Sounded the same front/middle center. The sales rep did not explain anything. I know music was playing with 2 other guys there maybe he went through all the tech geek speak 5 minutes before I was seated? My question is why were active speakers used? Convenience? Does the Bacch act as a streamer? Maybe I should have researched the product better but from what I heard my impression is its just another source(music) altering device that might be ground breaking in its application but not in results.
