Canadian Kennel Club Champion Bull Terrier "Roofus"
(an audiophile dog) and Don Mann enjoy a relaxing moment ...
"After I had hooked up your 505's in my system for the first time; I tested my wiring
accuracy, using the Stereophile Test CD. This recording features Sam Tellig and
Ralph the dog doing the channel checks. One of my bull terriers (Roofus) was sitting
on the sofa during the tests. When Ralph the dog on the CD, barked on the left channel,
my dog Roofus jumped up, stared at the left 505 speaker and barked back. When Ralph
identified the right channel with a woof, Roofus stared at the right speaker and
barked. When Ralph did the "in phase" check Roofus looked at the TV between the
two speakers and barked back at Ralph. When Ralph barked his "out-of-phase" test
Roofus looked all around the room trying to spot the phantom dog. It was really
amusing and we have repeated the process several times for fun.
