5 full-range channels + 1 LFE channel = 5.1



LFE is a fancy way of describing a sub woofer. Basically you have 5 speakers. 2 left and right speakers in the front with a third speaker in the middle for the center channel. You will also have a sub woofer that reproduces only really low sounds (bass etc) and two rear speakers. DVDs and audio devices that support 5.1 are encoded so that the audio can take full advantage of this type of system.

Please read this post carefully beontime...there's a quiz Monday !

Chuckles, emwhy, because intently reading to understand, I had to turn off the sound of NE vs. KS game, and then I hit "beontime...there's a quiz on Monday".   It does go beyond my woofer and tweeter knowledge.  So what time Monday? 


And to CT who sent it over to John, rule #2 in my Christmas present giving, play with what your giving for two weeks then wrap, but in this case, all ornaments have been turned off.  Downloading commencing on Joanna's youtube, "Book of Saturdays".

 Oh, this will be good, my alarm goes off at 9:30 am.  But I'll start cramming now.  Good thing it's not a prog rock quiz.  Chuckles!!!

You should pick up the rest of Johan's studio work w/KC just to complete the collection. There is a WEALTH of live material available- this lineup of Crimso
was a juggernaut on stage.

For years, I was only familiar with John's work with Asia- let's just say
his bass playing with Crimso was much more aggressive. I was blown
away by the tone and attack of  Mr. Wetton's P-bass.

The two U.K. studio albums are prime; for me, at least, they feel like
the bridge between KC and Asia. "Nothing to Lose" wouldn't feel out
of place on an Asia release.

Thanks, Johan, for such a rich and enduring (and ongoing) body of work!
