Just got Chesky's Ultimate Demonstration Disk. The intro to Track 9, Grandma's Hands, explains how important it is to listen to the finger snaps and compare them to your own.

On my 3.7i's these finger snaps are so high and to the left of the singers' image that I thought something might be wrong with the setup.
Tried tilting the speaker back, changing the damping on the back wall, even covering the back of the tweeter and then the midrange with some felt.

Nothing changed the position of the elevated finger snaps.

Listened to the track on my computer system: small two-way Pioneer speakers with a lousy Sony receiver, set up very near field.

The snaps were about two feet above the left speaker. This 'effect' can also be heard even on the YouTube presentation linked here.

So it is not the result of a line source or dipole speaker, or of the quality of the source or playback system.

Would anyone have an idea as to what causes this phenomenon?
