After extensive listening and playing around with this software I have concluded that it is very music dependent. On some songs or albums you may get holographic sound effects and on others nothing. One of my audiophile buddies recently spent a couple of days visiting and he liked what he heard when we were sitting side by side. He liked a setting of 60 degrees whereas for individual listening I now have it at 32 degrees. When it was at 28 he said it was fatiguing. At 60 he liked how it livened up the sound and felt it was worth purchasing just for that reason. The BACCH folks probably didn’t intend for this software to be used in this manner but I like what it does to the presentation. Yes ,the holographic effects are gone at 60 degrees but when I don’t have company I put it back to 32 degrees.
To me the occasional holographic sound effect is the frosting on the cake. The added live concert hall ambience is the cake because it is present on all music.
If you have tried this software ,I would love to hear your impressions and if you felt it was worth purchasing.
Last month u-BACCH issued an upgrade that was free to subscribers. I have spent a couple of weeks listening to it and I like the improvements. You still get the added liveliness to the sound but the holographic effects are more noticeable. It is still song dependent but now I am hearing the holographic effects on songs that I didn’t before. There is a free 14 trial and I haven’t heard any negatives with the software only positives.
