Yep, and $32k!
How cool is that! A grill that's literally a grill. Stick it on the fire when camping to cook your hotdogs! Gotta love the utility of it...
I made a test track with 30 second to 1 minute clips of 7 different tracks from Rodrigo Y Gabriella, Hiromi, Thievery Corp, Bonobo, Beats Antique, Infected Mushroom and Billy Joel.I started with Vapor, and also checked back in on Sunday as well. The setup sounded great with the Antipodes Music Server, Allnic amps and Verastarr cables driving the Vapor Joule Black speakers, which were stunning... the RAAL matched the midrange driver more seamlessly vs the Joule Whites and sounded more cohesive and musical. I think the Black version is overall a better speaker. The bass was just great. Last year was good but this year was a grand slam. They also get special mention for being one of the best values at the show, for under $15k you're getting a top-tier speaker, they could have charged $50k no problem. They handle every genre of music very well and can play loud.
BTW, since you covered the Electrocompaniet room ... somebody told me an interesting tidbit of info at the show. I don't know for sure that it's true, but based on who it came from I believe it is. Apparently the Norwegian Government gave them a grant in the 7 figure range for them to develop those loudspeakers!!! I don't know exactly I'd build after a multi-million cash infusion, but there's a picture in my head and it's pretty impressive
True statement, came right from the EC sales manager's mouth. Being in R&D for years, I can appreciate the work and how nice to get government funding for this exploration. Most of the monies were toward composites, adhesives, and assembly methods to make a very inert cabinet structure. They did not give money to design a speaker per se as the technology went toward aerospace, etc. applications.
... and for the company vacation in Fiji to discuss how to use pre-existing technologies like sand-casting
