What The Press Said
"The objective of Joe Jouhal in terms of sound stage is reached. It is stable in space, and especially is not over-represented. All proportions are kept, the instruments have their proper place and fair size: a bass kick-drum does not sounds like a 3 meter diameter Japanese drum. This is an extreme example, but previously experienced.
Having no phase anomalies, gives a rather surprising result in terms of the placement of voices. Where usually they are placed at the level of the speakers, they are, in this case, tens of centimeters above the transducers. This completely detaches the music from the enclosure and adds even more realism to the whole. The performance of the artist is completely independent of the technical and material reproduction, and enclosures are forgotten, such that by closing the eyes, there is no detectable point of sound emission. Better yet, on the live by Mylène Farmer in the France stage (a rare recording, track "Interlude - Avant que L'ombre"), we had the impression of being in a multi-channel installation!
These loudspeakers are fast, very fast, and the often difficult exercise of a closely miked piano recording, the knocking of the hammers on strings is explosive. Same observation on stringed instruments, where the micro-details related to the friction of the bow jump to the ears and reinforce the impression of natural reproduction that we already had."
