I'm thinking that I was right and you've listened to tracks on the PC for too long

The Amiga was 4-channel. Two channels unique to left, two unique to right. With wide stereo & join stereo both OFF you get faithful representation of the real Amiga. If you are listening using headphones though this will sound strange with the channels separated (but just as strange as it would if you were listening to the real Amiga using headphones!)

Wide Stereo is a post-processing feature. I believe it mixes left and right together with delays intended to simulate the distance between wide speakers? Not sure it is 100% faithful to the Amiga sound but I like it though.

Join Stereo mixes the separate left and right channels together so you can listen to them using headphones without it sounding strange. You can control the amount of channel mixing in the Mixer Control.

Very strange. Play any chip tune and switch between "Scaled" and "Interpolated Quad" and if you cannot hear a change, a filtering, then your audio equipment (soundcard, amplifier, speakers, ears ) must be so poor the difference is lost.

Tell me which tune and I'll have a listen and see if I can notice the difference. Just to satisfy my curiosity.

You know what you like though. I don't think it really matters if it is faithful or not?
