My name is Paul, I live on the east coast of Australia, and I "discovered" AudioCircle as part of my explorations into the world of O/B speakers, and Spatial Audio speakers in particular.
You are lucky in the US in having access to some great O/B manufacturers, of whom Spatial Audio are at the forefront.
I agree - I think that the new website is terrific, especially the 3D revolving views of each speaker. Neat.
AudioCircle posts have been a great way for me to learn about Spatial Audio customers impressions about their speakers, and I have got to the point where after looking at several options from a number of excellent manufacturers/companies, I am now ready to purchase. A
I have emailed Clayton with a couple of queries, mainly relating to the the best choice of speaker for my listening area (a largish combined living/dining room 20feet x 40 feet) and listening tastes (mainly classical music). I am guessing that the X3 will be the speaker for me, so the last big question will be the transport costs to Australia (which I am guessing will be a bit hefty).
I am guessing that Clayton is very busy, what with the new website, the launch of the X4, and probably lots of new orders coming in after Capitalfest, but hopefully I hear something back from him pretty soon, and then it will be time to complete the order
In the meantime, I am working my way through more Spatial Audio owner threads on AudioCircle.
Best wishes to all of you from Australia.
