I said it in jest...but let me ask you this:A speaker is bright, a bit recessed in the mids from poor XO work, or a non-ideal driver, etc. and has the typical ported box boom being blamed on the "room".A touch of EQ here and there and now it sounds pretty darned listenable, maybe even very good...at the show.Attendee is wowed, buys it, gets it home and...bright, recessed and boomy. They don't have EQ. What now? "Treatments" and magic caps? 8 years of "break/burn in"?Not cheated?Well...cheers,AJ
Thanks and glad to hear, that Sony is a very nice piece by Dan.
That is my piece when I meet up with Ted sometime later this week or next week.
Quote from AJinFLAGood to hear. That is my piece when I meet up with Ted sometime later this week or next week. Regards,Randy
I enjoyed Axpona again this year, saw some old friends, and met a few new ones. Most of the notable rooms have already been covered, but I'll add my 2 cents.- Volti and TWL was great again. I went back at least 3 times to relax and get over the bad sound in some of the other rooms. I liked their theme "Have Fun!", and that's what you get with these speakers (~$16k). They were by far the most enjoyable setup I listened to.Overall, it was fun, and nice to have a show close by in the Midwest again.
Hey Tom,Great to see you again! Greg Roberts (Volti Audio) & I had a ton of fun, even though it was very fatiguing with only two of us in the room... but the accolades left by others on our whiteboard was extremely rewarding!Also, it was great to see tedb, AJ, berto, gopher, mresseguie, ltr317, BigRedMachine and many others! I hope everyone "Had Fun"!Newport is next with Greg & Gary Dews from Border Patrol!Cheers,Pete
Hi AJ,Great to hang and chow with you. Did the speakers get back okay? Make sure they are ready when Doug requests them for the review. Cheers,Paul
Oh Randy, I forgot to tell you that I have highly contagious TB right now and can't let anyone into my home until, um, er, a couple weeks. Yeah, a couple weeks (or at least until Vinnie's modded unit arrives ).
Hi Paul,Good seeing you too, fun dinner Sat, don't think I've ever had that much exercise at one! I'll see in a day or so, Pilot Freight has been 100% reliable in the "no damage" category, much like FedEx is in the "damage" category.Pete good seeing you and all the fellas as well. Till next time...cheers,AJ
- The Legacy Aeris's (~$18k) were in two rooms and showed again why they've received such great reviews in the mainstream magazines. In his seminar, Bill D also revealed a rather bold strategy with an 8 channel DSP preamp and apodizing filter dacs to drive multiple amps per speaker, measurement and eq capability, etc. This will start with the next generation Helix that looked like an Aeris on steroids, and will trickle down to others that currently use the Xilica processor. Pretty cool stuff from a master.
...Tom, did you get a photo of the next generation Legacy Helix? I'm a huge fan of the Aeris design, and I know Helix will be priced higher around $48k, but I'd love to see a photo if you have it?
