I'm in the process of building my home theatre and Sunfire will dominate the environment.
I know I can learn much from many of you and my question becomes: How can I provide information that might enhance the listening pleasure for all of us.
Well, to this end, I'm a Ph.D, psychologist, behaviorist by training with a background in animal learning and audio/visual discrimination processses. For almost 25 years, I've been examining behavioral discrimination properties of sound from Sonic Halography (SH). As many of you know, there are various levels of "knowing" SH. There is the stunning effect when you first hear it in comparison to "conventional stereo". (Yes, remember "your first time"?)
But after many exposures, there is a way to listen to SH. It is a natural behavioral process that readjusts what you "see" when you "hear". How this comes about is something I'd like to share with you. Much of it is psychphysics and Carver has described this at length (a story I love to hear again and again... sort of like my father's WW2 stories). But the manner in which behavior (e.g., perceptual behavior) is shaped and maintained is the subject of the experimental analysis of behavior and something that I believe I can bring to you folks.
And besides all this, I've catalogued hundreds of LPs and CDs over the years to illustrate my point. For example, if you want to hear "this" over "there", here's how to do it.
Anyhoo, I digress. I'm so pleased to be with you folks and hope you can teach me how to get the most out of Carver and, very soon, Sunfire.
