I'm listening with Sgt. Peppers album now with my Roxanne. My previous experiences listening to the album always gives me a feeling that this is indeed recorded a very long time ago. i have the stereo master and normally you get the clear distinction/separation between the left and right channel which are unnatually wide. Using an iem just makes it worse.
But the precise imaging (in my perception) and clear, detailed presentation of DX90 combined with it's very quite (black/dark) background somehow mitigates this issue for me. Sure the soundstage is still huge and very deep but it just feels right. The bass just goes deep and tight. Not sure if it's just because of Roxanne (at flat bass) more than just the DX90.
The drums play on"Getting better" and "with a little help from my friends" is just amazing. It sounds like a lot of things going on but they are presented very clear and crisp. The sitar play on "Within you, without you" is also as clear and natural. (You can really appreciate George Harrison's genius here ) The 1st track "Sgt Pepper.." just have a very deep powerful bass which doesn't resemble anything from the 60's.
Overall, listening to the album makes me feel like I'm in a big room and sitting a few feet away while the Beatles are playing.
