Thanks to the folks at Vapor for putting together the tour!
Any updates on the Breeze tour? It's going on three months since the last update/impressions.
Good stuff Roscoeiii, thanks for posting impressions ... finally If I can though, allow me to share my thoughts on the issue of fatigue and detail. The standard paradigm is that more detail retrieval means more fatigue. Assuming the same drivers are being used, that would be a fair assumption, because the only way to resolve more details would be through a frequency response imbalance. However, with the RAAL it's inherent ability to resolve details is far greater than with other tweeters. The reason why is energy storage, and the RAAL's lack thereof. It's beyond this thread to post measurements, but suffice to say it's very clear in measurements like Burst/Decay and Etc that the RAAL is far superior in the time domain. I believe that lack of energy storage allows the RAAL to more closely follow a complex waveform known as music. So that's why I refer to the detail from a RAAL as resolution, not detail. Because the detail from a RAAL is more akin to the extra resolution in a high res recording. Think about that, Redbook vs 24/192, which is more detailed and which is more fatiguing. I think clearly the 24/192 is more detailed and LESS fatiguing. Why? Because the extra bit depth allows it to more closely follow and re-create the complex original waveform ... just like a RAAL. So at least in my experience and opinion, the RAAL breaks the paradigm of detail and musicality being diametrically opposed. I actually think the RAAL is more detailed and less fatiguing than dome tweeters. Again, that's my opinion. I don't presume it to be accepted as universal fact. How would you respond to that Roscoe? Oh, and good idea on the Triode
I'm curious what your opinion is regarding the Oskar Heil AMT vs. Raal?Those drivers are now available to the public from PE under the Dayton stencil.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-amt2-4-air-motion-transformer-tweeter-4-ohm--275-092This one looks like it could be used as a mid substitute for a BG neo ribbon in a design like Dennis's Phils.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-amtpro-4-air-motion-transformer-tweeter-4-ohm--275-094
Old thread.....but how many here purchased the speaker after testing it?Thanks,UL
This is not meant to derail the intention of this thread and the need for tour participants to send their thoughts on the Breeze and to stick to the scedule ... but I was planning to sign-up for the tour but the list was too long. Short story: I decided to go one up and I now have the Stiff Breeze on order. If anyone in the Rochester NY area would like to visit for an audition, you're welcome to do so. Also, I spend some of my year in Emerald Isle, NC and so the offer is open to the NC audiophiles as well. Cheers, KP
The Breeze tour schedule shows they will be coming to me next, is that right
This thread isn't the right spot for this discussion, but I'll answer quickly. If you would like more follow up info, please start a new thread.We've used quite a few AMT's. They are good, better than the vast vast majority of dome tweeters, but still not in the same league as the RAAL. The one thing that the bigger ones can do that the RAAL can't is offer a low crossover point, which can be a valuable tool to a designer. But the RAAL gives more low-level detail retrieval, more refinement and a smoother presentation, and more accurate tone top to bottom.
