Ok, let's be honest. You can't like everything. The Legacy room left me completely indifferent. No image, no soundstage, no attempt to show their speakers in a flattering light (no treatments). I sort of walked away wondering what they could have sounded like with a bit more effort in their set up... these shows are about marketing, aren't they?
It's always interesting to see differing points of view. I spent a good bit of time in the Legacy room and at first I thought they sounded pretty good but after 30 minutes or so I decided that if I had $20k I'd plop it down on a pair of Whisper XDs right there on the spot. Beautiful sounding speakers, far and away the best sound of the show, not even close for me. No 2nd place. I believe the reason why the Legacy room did not have room treatments is because the way their speakers are designed they interact with the room very little. I believe it's kinda like one of their selling points. The rep told me that he had equipment ready (external XO, etc.) to set them up in that room but he listened "as is" and decided he didn't need it. I agree, I thought they sounded excellent.
scott, what did you think of the element monitor?did you get a chance to listen at ron's room? usher mini dancer 2, pass labs xa30.5, melody preampusher, my next purchase.
Can anyone offer up some more info on the Soundfield monitors? What equipment were they being used with? Room size and distances?Thanks!
