Mary mentioned you and your Lincoln City audio show today!  :thumb:

I tried to slip one of the room cards into my pocket, but Jim's got eagle eyes, so I didn't succeed. It's just as well. He may have suspected me if I had succeeded in sneaking the speakers out in the middle of the night. Darn it!  :green:

Jim and Mary are lovely, special people.  (Many thanks for the promo, Mary.   :thumb:)  But Michael, I'd hardly call our humble GTG an "audio show" ... although we did manage to cram about 700 speakers and 400 audio hounds into my buddy's house...according to his wife.   :lol:

Seriously, those BePure 2's are down-right gorgeous.

I got to hear them at PacFest. The Spanish brand Kroma was showing stand mount speakers that use the Purify driver. The Mimi Extreme uses one woofer and costs twice as much as the Salk. They sounded good, but so did the Salks. And with two woofers in a larger enclosure I bet that the BePure2 bass is better. I didn’t run back and forth between the rooms to try for a more direct comparison and I heard them on separate days. I think that the Salk is the better value. There are lots of fine speakers at $6 to $7k; I think Spatials at a similar price are also a good value. There were some really good $10k+ monitors that give the impression of bass, but they have to work hard, esp. in a larger room. The Borreson monitors were impressive, as they should be at over $50,000, or $100,000 for the super duper ones. The driver baskets on the pricy model cost close to $10,000/pr just to 3D print out of Zirconium.
