Wow! Great report. Thank you!
GREAT SOUND Border Patrol, Triode Wire Labs, The Living VoiceVery smooth sound coming from this room. The only room with a blacker background is the LIO room, but this is very close (thanks, P.I. Audio Uberbuss!). One of the most emotionally engaging rooms for me, the flow of the music just draws you in. Soundstage isn't overly broad or deep, but image placement is good with a very wide sweet spot. Feels like I'm looking down on and into the music. Just the right heft to large orchestral drums with very litte overhang. I am repeating myself, but this show has a lot of very well thought out, appropriately scaled rooms. I am a big fan of what Pete's cables do in this system in particular compared to the others at the show - sweetness in the treble with a touch of warmth, detail without going too over the top just for the sake of sounding 'fast'. Ease and tone are two words to describe this room.On my demo cd, this is the most spot-on I've heard the drum track; this is a very 'live' sound for sure. Guitar excellent at the heart of it, and the system is picking out inner details other systems missed - harmonics are coming through amazingly off the dark background. Violins and vocals very good, the vocals are smoothing out just enough to not lose the details and bring this hot-mixed track in line. Low and high level details again shine, even in the heavy metal, the backing distortion effect in the low level intro is perfectly clear. Not the end all in soundstage size or depth, and not the last word in dynamics, but what you get - and that is a lot - shows a relentless refinement to get it 'right'.
Jonathan,Thank you so much for your insightful & honest impressions on the various TWL rooms you visited.By any chance, did you stop by Dave Slagle's Room (I believe it was Room 419)? I had some special power cables as well as my new phono interconnects in there. (Dave S said the background was "dead quiet" comapred to the other cables he had in there...) Cheers,Pete
