Worth taking a trip to hear from your home in the Badlands (or is that the "Corn Palace"?)  :D

They are in Iowa.

Well, that's almost where I live!  :lol:   A little to the right of those esteemed landmarks.  

Do you mean they are with a customer there?  I thought your website says you're in NC?

Rick,

Can you give the secret location and how to contact this person?  I would love to drop in for a listen.

Thanks

I'm the customer that Rick is refering to. I just completed them yesterday and have family visiting from out of town so I can't give you a full review yet but my initial imressions are simply WOW!  :D  The sounds quality is stunning and the best I've heard. More thoughts to come after breaking things in a bit and some critical listening.

I'd be happy to have anyone interested in hearing them over for a listening session. I live just outside Des Moines, Iowa. Please give me a week or so advance notice and we'll get it scheduled.

Congrats Jim!  Looks like you got yourself a mean pair of speakers.  What sub driver is that?  Let us know your impressions once you got them running and have listened to them.

One thing I'd be interested to know is how line arrays image.  I have never gotten to hear a line array before so I don't know how they would compare in the dissapearing act to a more conventional speaker.

The Excelarray's I heard at Gary's here in Denver was the best imaging I've heard, ever.  Friggin amazing.  That was in a heavily treated room, but still incredible.

Josh,

I expected the normal benefits of walk around imaging that go with an array but what I didn't expect was how good the image would be. The Omegarrays have the most 3 dimensional image with layering of the sound stage and performers I think I've ever heard. I'm really impressed with them. They come closer to accurately recreating the live performance than anything I've ever heard. Again, these are initial impressions but the experience has just been WOW so far. More to come.  :D As you can tell, I'm very happy.

Jim
