    Default 3D Pre CD preferred listening environment

    I just got my 3D pre audio CD in the mail today. Stoked! So I've got my blank sheets of paper, CD in hand, and I'm thinking, "How should I be listening?"

    a.) Mackie HR824
    b.) Some good Sony closed-ear headphones
    c.) Sennheiser open ear headphones
    d.) Home stereo.

    I'm pretty sure d.) is not the right answer (and I know the obvious answer is, "All of the above."), but what do you all think? For fear of seeing the list of preamps, I did not open the CD jacket and attempt to read listening instructions (if any) inside.

    Thanks!
    By the way, how do you actually say "Fuston"?

    Well, if you're really adventurous (and tireless), try grading the preamps on as many different systems as you can before looking at the answers.

    Phillip Cooper, who frequently posts here, did that. Listened in his car, on his stereo and on his studio speakers. Graded his favorites on each different system and then compared his lists. I won't give away his conclusions, but he is free to share if he wants.

    I think you'd learn a lot by listening on several different systems. If you do that, though, take just one instrument at a time or else you'll really confuse yourself.

    And Fuston rhymes with Houston. fyew-stun. Although most any pronunciation I'll answer to. And I've heard plenty.

    Also, the answers are coded so you have to work to find out. It's not like you'll glance at the list and go A-Ha! It'll take more work than that.
