No to go pick up more empty cand and bottles now that they are worth a dime $.10 :thumb:

Heard your wares at least 3 times at RMAF. Now I will be attending Axpona Chicago. Looking forward to hearing them again. Who knows, maybe to buy this time. Always a great sound, and great wood craftmanship. Eye candy.

Here is a pic of our room with the New Apollo speakers and Modwright tube gear and WyWires Diamond cables.
Just amazing sound, we all felt it was the best sound we have ever had and many others agreed. Minimal room treatment and great tonal balance and accuracy. Usually a waiting line to get in the room, busy even on Sunday. Last tune was 4:30 sunday with a full room and we played Stimela (coal train), often because of the wide dynamics of this song it can be uncomfortable when it hits the loud passages. Not here, sounded like a live concert and even with jaded ears from too much listening we all ended the show with goosebumps!



The Skogrund room was also great! We had the Poseidons there with the new Duelund crossover upgrade. Great balance of gear, and the combination of tape source and a big room created an incredible stage.




These pics are kind of funny in that they make the rooms look similar in size where in reality the Skogrund room was almost twice the size of the other room. Sonically it really showed how important the room is to the sound, especially stage, and it also showed the impact the source makes. You just cannot beat a good tape source!
btw the guy standing next to the Poseidons is not really eight feet tall, another trick of photography.  (these are pics I grabbed from other people, I was remiss and took no pictures. Next show I will take photos and video... promise!!)

Very nice Lou.  Congrats on another great showing of your exceptional speakers!  Hope to get to The Capital show this year for another listening session.

Yes, I heard these babies at Axpona and thought they sounded very analog and human. They have a natural quality I heard no where else at the show. I think you came up with something special with this driver placement.

Lou, congrats on Greg Weaver's Axpona comments relative to the Poseidon v2 in the July/August issue of The Absolute Sound - " This new Daedalus Poseidon v2 just lays tonal color bare and can flesh out texture and unravel space like little else in its price range. And, if you are into natural wood finishes, the look is to die for." 

You are the man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
