Nice.  Never seen anyone install Absorption panels between the speakers in that manner.  Could you describe your thinking or results?

rbbert,

WoW! I've seen Ulysses in many wood options and owned a beautiful pair in cherry...but your light / natural with the dark front baffles are amazing! Stunningly beautiful looking speakers!

It's something I play with from time to time.  It can have a pretty dramatic effect on the stereo image, and where the panels are and how they are angled will affect that.  Sometimes I put them on the outside of the speakers instead.  Whether that is good or bad, or more true to the recording, I can't always say.  In any case, they are easy to move or remove.

Robert,

I see you use a PASS Int-60 to power your speakers. I've read about this amp, but have no experience with it. Could you speak a bit about it and what it does for your speakers? Any comparisons to a Modwright amp?

Here are a few "professional" reviews

There are also quite a few discussions on other audio boards.  I don't really have anything specific to add to all of them (I've contributed on some of the latter).  Pass Labs products are generally felt to be of high quality, compatible with almost any speaker, very listenable and competitively priced (which is some cases is pretty high  :lol:).

Last Friday I took delivery on a new pair of Ulysses with the "new" X-over (upgraded parts) and the speaker DID's.  They haven't finished breaking in, but the sound is everything I remembered from shows.  I haven't heard the Apollo's, though.

Absolutely Stunning!

Robert,

Thank you. I have read a couple of the reviews now. It sounds like a wonderful sounding amp, but I think it's a bit over my budget. (Or is that my wife's budget?)

Michael

In that case, have you looked at Primaluna?
