Sara K. performing If I could Sing Your Blues from the album Play on Words ) is an excellent test of a component's ability to reproduce depth .  The trumpet that opens the piece was at least ten feet from the microphone on the right hand side, and the Eros places it in precisely that spot.  Sara K. appears closely centered between the speakers.  Yet, at the same time, her voice fills the room with a natural reverberation.  The guitar appears slightly behind Sara and has a warm, natural tone.  This speaker is a real champ at reproducing depth and unraveling the layering of instruments and musicians.

Sara K. is amazingly subtle yet seductive on this 1994  release, accompanied by her largest acoustic ensemble to date ~ Guitars, drums, percussion, piano, upright bass, horn and koto

Play On Words — a musical and lyrical masterpiece with Sara K. on vocals and her distinctive four string guitar, makes its way through a number of styles, such as country and blues, and invigorates these rather staid genres with new content and meaning.
