Hi Mike,
I haven't listened to the Wedgies for a while, I was running in the V1s for a few weeks getting them ready for my son prior to finishing the Oticas.  I will be able to go from the wedgie to the Otica with a cable swap once I get everything where it belongs.  From memory the Wedgies image and soundstage better than the Oticas, the way I have the Oticas set up at the moment anyway.  They sound more similar than different based on audio memory.  It may be a bit before I can do any type of reasonable comparison due to college graduation and other family obligations.  I can offer this, the Wedgies are not embarrassed by the Oticas (of course you already know this  :thumb:) and I like the servos drivers facing forward better than opposite.

Best,
Ed

Ed,

My initial impressions were along the same lines. The Oticas are fuller in the midrange but the Wedgies imaged a little better. There was also something else about the Wedgies I liked but couldn't put my finger on it well enough to describe it. The Wedgies were also easier to get set up in my small 11' x 13' x 8' room.

The Oticas can almost be too much in my room but boy did they show off in the larger room I had at LSAF in May.

I haven't listened to my Wedgies since April. I wanted to get a good feel for the Oticas before doing any comparison again. I was unsure how much my familiarity with the Wedgies (had been listening to them over a year) combined with unfamiliarity of the new Oticas was affecting my impressions.

Remember, when comparing the two it isn't going to be as easy as a cable swap. You have to adjust the subs to compensate for the Wedgies 200Hz rolloff vs the Oticas 100Hz. I'm going to use Chuck's record sheets to record the sub control positions for Oticas and Wedgies. That should cut down the amount of time needed to swap from one to the other but it still won't be a fast A/B.

If you guys make some comparisons start a new thread for it.

Because my room is small, I decided to mount my servo amps in the ends of a new stand to save space, and because my room is small I am able to do that and keep the connections short.

I am really enjoying the NX Oticas, I continue to tweak the bass and speaker positions.

More later.

Best,
Ed

You just have to have Dave build an UberBuss inside the stand and you will be all set.  :D

Thanks guys, it helps unclutter the floor a bit. 

The Uberbuss is sitting next to it right now, I considered building a spot for it but because of the space it would take up I chose not to.
