Full-marks for Mingus Septet
We’re all familiar with that moment in competition when judges award full-marks across the board. We’ve seen it play-out at international sporting events, but most often in movies for dramatic effect.
Audio Art judge speakers using a category system they call Twenty Essentials of Illustrated Audio. These range from Detail Reproduction to Instruments and Vocals to Soundstage Wide and Deep to High Frequency Band, or just simply, Sound Quality.
In this month’s copy of the Chinese magazine, the review of Mingus Septet covers technical specifications, discusses the Mingus sound signature and takes us through extensive listening analysis of several pieces of music. The reviewers had some great things to say, and though the quotes may not have been translated with perfect cultural nuance, we get the impression they liked it.
Many thanks to the reviewers at Audio Art Magazine for this excellent review.
