Demo Opportunities
« on: 23 Jan 2023, 12:30 am »
Hello,

I’ve been reading about Daedalus for a while and am now in a position to upgrade my speakers. I am particularly interested in the Apollos or the Apollo 11s. I was hoping to make it out to one of the shows last year but unfortunately wasn’t able to make it. Does anyone have ideas of how I might get a chance to hear them before I make the leap without waiting until the show in June? I have seen on some of the other speaker forums that there are current owners who are willing to show off their setups. I feel odd asking but I figure it’s worth a shot.

I live in Houston, TX but am willing to travel and travel often for work so there’s a non-zero chance I’d be nearby at some point anyway.

Thanks all,

Alex

I would reach out to Lou at Daedalus directly if he doesn't get back here.  He knows where his speakers are and who is willing to possibly let you hear them.

Also if you travel to Seattle book some time and Lou might help you get to his shop just north of the big city.  I will note it is a shop with a listening space set up.  The space isn't like being in a home but you can probably here what's going on.

Alex,

I tried to PM you just now, but you're too new to receive PMs. If you could post a couple more times, I believe you ought to be able to receive PMs. I own a pair of Apollos that you could listen to if you get to Oregon.

Thanks, both. Looks like a should be able to receive PMs after three posts so hopefully this one will do it.  I emailed Lou directly last week but hadn't heard back yet. Trying to be patient, but I figured there was no harm in asking both ways.

I'm in Columbia MO and have a pair of Apollo 11s with a pair of BOWs. Let me know if you get to STL or KC. I'm just 2 hours from either airport.

Hi Alex, I did reply last week, probably stuck in junk mail purgatory....
You could fly up to Bellingham and audition here at the shop or come to the Pacific Audio Fest in June? I had stopped taking orders while we caught up but am now open to taking a few orders for the year.
Basically like everyone else I can’t find decent labor, I just have a couple part time assistants now but at least I don’t compromise the quality.

Feel free to call me and we can talk about what speaker may work best for you if any.

thanks much,
Lou

Hi Alex: I left you a PM but maybe it was too early to receive it. I'd also be happy to help. I have the Apollo's set up with LTA amplification here in NW NJ about an hour from Newark Liberty if you are ever out this way. Happy to help!

Thanks, everyone. And thanks, Lou. I will give you a call to discuss. I’m sure I’ll make it to one of these locations before too long.

Im in the south suburb of Houston but I have the Zeus. Not exactly what you are looking for but could give a feel for the brand.

You would be most welcome to hear my Apollo 11’s

Tom, I will almost certainly take you up on hearing the Apollo 11s.

Advanced101, I may take you up on hearing the Zeus as well. I’m unlikely to get the Zeus but wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to hear them when they are so close, especially if I can’t get to New Orleans soon.

Thanks, everyone!
