A concert DVD listening experience of Chris Botti in Boston in our Escape Pod listening room theater.

I’m enjoying the amazing “Chris Botti In Boston”, Blue Ray Concert DVD in our “Escape Pod” listening / reference room.  If you’ve never listened to this concert DVD from 2008 recorded with the Boston Symphony at Symphony Hall in Boston, MA, you are totally missing out. 

I consider my self pretty fortunate that I work in a showroom for Home Theater and High End two channel stereo and part of my job description is to listen to great music in one of our 3 Reference Rooms.  Ed wants me to enjoy it, critique it and share it,  from a new guy’s perspective to the Audiophile’s world.

The concert is a spectacular mix of Contemporary Jazz, Pop, Classical and maybe some light rock, delivered by an array of gifted guest Artists, and of course the stunning performance of Chris Botti on the trumpet complementing each of the artists.

Who are some of the guest artists?  Well there’s the not too hard to look at Katharine McPhee, there is Lucia Micarelli, Sy Smith, Sting, Josh Groban, Yo-Yo Ma, Steven Tyler, John Mayer & Dominic Miller.

When you come into the showroom, and your mouth is watering to hear an excellently matched, wonderfully tuned, very affordable 7.1 channel system, that cranks very nicely, the Escape Pod does not disappoint.  The room size is 11.5 feet by 13, You would call it a spare bedroom or home office size room.  It does have some modest acoustic treatment that delivers an impressive sound and visual  experience (emphasis on sound), especially for the person who does not want to make mistakes mis-matching gear for their first home theater setup.

You will want to request to hear Katharine McPhee in her version of Frank Sinatra’s “I Got You Under My Skin”.  Her stage personality will keep you grinning with her pleasant mingling with Chris Botti and then his Guitarist.  Her breathtaking beauty coupled with a remarkable voice is just one of the many magnificent guest performances.

Here’s the system we now have tuned up just right in the room for you to come in and enjoy:

7.1 Channel NAD T-758 Surround Sound Receiver
PSB Imagine X2T Tower Speakers – L&R Front
1 Center Channel – PSB Imagine XC Centre
4 each: Surround L & R, Surround Back L & R in wall speakers
1 Sub Bass – Subwoofer – REL T/7i

Come in and just melt on the couch, we’ll leave you alone to enjoy the concert or your choice of 2 channel listening with music streaming for all of your favorite hits.

Ed Masterson the owner and my friend from way back is an audiophile and just enjoys  shooting the breeze and sharing his passion of High End to Ultra High End listening.

Okay, I’m stepping out of the content of this Video, and asking myself and You the question,  What would make a man, stick with Dan D’Agostino (the man & Highly respected, legendary Geek who started 2 companies),  from 1994 to present, two different companies, like 24 years?  Why would Bill McKiegan take the chance of leaving a great company “Krell” and stand with Dan starting the company “D’Agostino Master Audio Systems” ?
