A very worthwhile critical read on the use of controls in recorded music amplification. Suggested are: phase and balance, illumination, dynamics, rhythm, temperature, width, tone, texture, position, depth, and weight. I have three devices that do some of this control – iFi iTube, TaKet Sound Stage Activator, and Jolida Foz SS-X Sound Stage Expander. http://www.tubecad.com/articles_2002/Missing_Sonic_Controls/index.html
