Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Dutch carol 'Herders hij is geboren' (Shepherds, he is born') by the Netherlands Chamber Choir
… music is not only an 'entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

MERRY CHRISTMAS, Everyone!

We were visiting my wife's 96 year-old aunt last week, and at one point she mentioned that "Life is too short and goes by too fast."  An old wisdom, but it became disconcerting coming from someone of her age!  0:) ;)

Anyway, I found this forum a good number of years ago (c. 16 or so?), and am happy to be present and reading your comments and writing a few of my own.  Yes, the c. 16 years have gone by too fast!

There is a quote attributted to James Dean: The essential in life is to die young and as late as possible. I think your aunt got it all right --- and may God bless us all GMGers with her age and mental condition.

Once again, MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! GOD BLESS!
