Well curiosity got the best of me earlier this week on 2 fronts. First, I decided to explore on-line music streaming by getting Spotify ($0.99 per month for the first 3 months). Second, I temporarily moved my Modi MB down to my Home Theatre setup. So I'm running Spotify via my MacBook Pro's USB output into the Mimby, then analog out of the Mimby into an analog input on my Pioneer Elite receiver. Although Spotify isn't true Hi-Rez I must say it sounds very good over the Home Theatre speaker setup. With the Modi MB and the Receiver set to DIRECT (no Pioneer processing) 2 channel music sounds incredibly spacious and detailed. In fact I had to verify that I hadn't mistakenly switched the Receiver's setting to surround because it sounded so enveloping. Switching the Receiver to it's processing mode to enable surround was very good as well. Next, I ran a fibre optic cable from the satellite receiver into the Mimby and listened to the Pioneer Elite as 2 channel DIRECT, as well as, surround and there was a huge improvement in clarity and detail when watching TV. The original connection was via HDMI out of the satellite receiver into the Pioneer Elite. The improvement in sound for TV watching is so evident that I don't think we can remove the Modi MB from this setup. Looks like I will need to consider adding another Modi MB to my order when I purchase a Loki later in December.
