For some time now, I've been thinking about a move from my Sanders 10C hybrid stat system to a high(er) efficiency speaker that can be used with low to mid power tubes. I spoke with Lou a couple of weeks ago, and based on my room size, he thought the Argos would be a good choice. As fate would have it, two days later
I stumbled upon a local listing here on AC for a pair of Ulysses at a price that was too good to pass up: http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=113993.0
I went for a listen last Monday, and picked them up on Saturday. The condition of these speakers is 9.5 out of 10, and Lou advises that they're current except for the internal wiring upgrade.
Installing these speakers in my system was an ear-opening experience. My Sanders are known for their detail, imaging, and soundstaging. As good as they are, I'm hearing things on familiar tracks through the Ulysses that I've never heard before. Soundstage and imaging are at least on par with the Sanders, but tonality is better. I'm currently using one of my Magtech amps, but just purchased a pair of Atma-Sphere M60 monoblocks. I'm expecting the Ulysses to shine even brighter with the OTL magic.
My previous speaker journey has included Meridian DSP-5000, Thiel CS1.6, Emerald Physics CS2 and CS2.3, and Salk SoundScape 10s. I thought the Salks were going to be my "last" speakers until I tried the Sanders. Now with the Ulysses, I think I'm there.
I'll post pictures once things are dialed in. Thanks to Lou for building a world-class product that's also beautiful to behold.
