What they’re saying about the Surround Master V2

2 reviews for Surround Master V2

  1. Jay L Rudko (verified owner)

    Imagine if a descoder of this calibre were available when quad was in its heyday. With the multiple matrix systems, then used for most quad records and radio broadcasts, no one decoder was out there that could get the best out of any of them. Sure, there were the Tate decoders that did impressive things with SQ, but did nothing for QS. Sansui’s Vario-Matrix delivered excellent performance from QS records, but there weren’t as many of them as there were SQ. Sansui really didn’t do much for SQ, either. But enter the Surround Master v.2. Yes, it’s a latecomer, but some things are just worth the wait. SQ, QS, EV, and practically every other matrixed quad system gets top notch decoding with this unit. Separation is hard to discern from a truly discrete source, and its ability to extract a truly amazing surround presentation from stereo material… well, you just have to hear it. In addition, the SM is a tri-band unit, optimizing separation separately in the low, mid, and high-frequency ranges. The v.2 is now out of production, but the v.3 is just around the corner. It will deliver the goods, just like the v.2, but will also use an improved power supply, and feature an optical digital input. You gotta get involved with Involve!

    I waited for a unit like this for 50 years. It is quite likely the most satisfying piece of gear I’ve ever bought. Processing is very good, as a 1965 Command Records song started out with the last chord in the Left Rear channel and then sweeping up to end in the Right Front channel. I love having individual channel level controls too. I’ve rewired everything in my rack so that the outputs of my turntable and tape machines all go through the SMv2 as it seems to make things more dynamic. Their customer service is first class. The old saying, ” Hearing is Believing” applies to this device.
