The Cherry Poseidons are SOLD!

BTW we have zero pressure to sell these so the prices will NOT drop, all is very fair and great deals as it is.

thanks

Demo Muse  $4,995






Hi, Lou.

Is it a trick of light, or are the bases of the Muses slightly bigger (from front to back) than the tops?

No trick, the baffle does slant up a couple degrees, so yes the bottom is slightly deeper than the top. Many of the Daedalus models have this.
It works very well for a more realistic stage.
thanks,
lou
ps the front on the Muse and the Poseidon also has an angle in (about 8 degrees)

I emailed Lou a couple of weeks ago on the supposed Eton tweeter upgrade but he was tight lipped.  Appears he has let the cat out of the bag here.  Time to tell all Lou.

Well the cat's out of the bag isn't it? recently Eton informed me that they have discontinued the tweeter I use, yep it was a momentary freak out, but having survived half a dozen suppliers of drivers going out of business over the past couple decades I wasn't too worried. Turns out they have introduced a much improved version, and once I finally got the sample in and the XO parts adjusted I became excited. It really is a major improvement on what was already a great tweeter. The same natural tonality but with a more even response especially off axis, lower distortion and faster, much faster.  It is still a one inch soft dome but the mounting flange is much smaller because the magnet structure is neodymium, so we have had to work with our machinist to design and build adapter plates so that they can be retrofitted as upgrades and also for the offset tweeter models.
The upgrade cost for existing models is $150 per tweeter plus $400-$600 for the XO work, fitting and refinish etc.  (Doing this as an upgrade opens a can of worms with potentially a lot of labor involved. We will be fair but have to cover our basic shop costs here.)
Obviously all brand new models going forward will have this tweeter and on these demo sets I'm selling the tweeter upgrade price I listed is a great deal.

A little stressful but exciting news!  Very generous for you to go to lengths to make sure your customers really can be "customers for life" by developing a retrofit option for existing speakers.  I know I'm a bit off topic on what is already a kind of historic post/sale for Daedalus, but your post got me wondering:

If the mounting flange for the new tweeter is notably smaller than the old, have you have done any testing of the tweeter in its current, smaller mounting flange alone (without an adapter plate) with your existing models?  Although probably not revolutionary as much as evolutionary to matured speaker designs, getting tighter center-to-center spacing (in particular on the point-source models) or being able to revisit optimizing the baffle width/geometries (in the sculpted baffle models) for free could be a (another) happy consequence of moving on to the new tweeters?

All the best for your new year!

Lou,

Please move if you think this is derailing the thread, as it is not the intent.

However, what is the game plan for those of us who own Daedalus speakers, but haven't received the upgrade in the event of damage to the tweeter?

Do you have stock of the older tweeters for customers who may need it in the future, or will our only recourse be to ship the speakers back to be repaired?

Hope you are enjoying your holiday season!

Good question and one I have thought about. We will keep some stock so that we can take care of any damaged older tweeters. The Eton tweeters are incredibly well build and I only know of one that has ever failed.
thanks,
