I know that the Audio Note Speakers which are basically Snells but very tweaked out with high grade components and wire, are always demoed with them being in the corner. The demos I've heard of them have been fantastic, with great imaging, sound stage and the bass for being in the corner is not over ripe or bloated. I've never tried putting my E III's in the corner but was wondering about this.
Lastly, Audio Note UK still sells the original Type E design under their own brand as the AN-E with four different price levels, from memory about $3500 to something under $10k?, or something insane like that. They are improved designs, but I didn't think that improved when I heard them.
I believe these are the are one of the Signature Series with the hemp woofers. My notes say $16,000 a pair!
Nice pic.So how much do you think it would cost one to build their own? Maybe $1000?
Your welcome tonyjack. Have fun experimenting but take your time and try to live with each little change for a while before you move on or move them back.Yes, the speakers in that picture look like the AN-E Lexus Signature, about $16K without the stands. I think that particular pair belongs to Dave Cope who helps them with the shows and other promotional stuff. (He used to be the AN US distributor a few years ago.) That pair is placed a little further back into the corners than I remember, but that is the gist of it. If you slid them forward about a foot along the side wall axis, but kept them just as close to the sides and with the same toe in, then that would be how I have mine set up. It works for me.If someone can make those exact speakers for 1000 US dollars, and I mean make them exactly the same with the same parts and materials (or better), I will gladly pay you 4000 dollars for them. Does that sound fair? PM me when they are ready and I will come over and listen to them before I write you a check. Or if you prefer cash . . . .
I have an AudioNote dealer in my town, I've seen and listened to some of the AN loudspeakers. I wasn't impressed one single bit. Not even.
