Glad you guys made it by dc10/Audio Techne/ZenWave, I'm obviously biased but I do think dc10 and Vapor have some of the best sound I've heard so far. I agree the dc10 room is a bit on the live side but it's not distracting very often. The size and bass extension of the stand mount speakers match the room really well, and bass resolution and texture is super impressive which makes the recreation of bass instruments especially natural sounding. Vapor hit a home run with the Perfect Storm, the resolution and clarity of these speakers is amazing, possibly the best I've ever experienced. They could charge double easily. I look forward to see what you think... I agree about Kii, I can't even tell what the speakers sound like as they did not get along with the room very well. I hope they manage to fix the room acoustics issues...Oh, and definitely go back to check out PranaFidelity again if you have the chance. There is a Luxman CD player right there and he's always happy to play music people bring in. His speakers are especially good imo, some of the best value you'll find. I always thought his 5090 monitors or Odyssey monitors were about the best value out there. RWJR, the ELAC speakers are excellent. They will probably dominate the <$1k/pair price range. Their upcoming Roon-based music server is amazing too, as is their app-based subwoofer eq. Andrew is a nice guy too, even answered a question about the Pioneer S-1EX speakers I'm getting tomorrow... Those speakers were the deal of the century, can't believe they sold so poorly...
VENDORS.... STFU WHEN PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO LISTEN.
You self-important bozos! http://www.whatsbestforum.com/showthread.php?18437-Kii-Three-speaker-review-english-version&p=342573&viewfull=1#post342573I reported the post fwiw, hopefully WBF won't tolerate this kind of behavior...
Great coverage (as always) guys, and I'm so glad you were able to hear the wonderfully musical (and dead quiet) LIO-based Harbeth sound that Vinnie puts together in these shows. Add to that he is genuinely one of the nicest guys in audio. Congrats..hope he sells a bunch.
On the WBF forum he has a point, the show IS about people. I wish he would take is own advice and be polite to other people BY TAKING HIS FUCKING CONVERSATION OUTSIDE. By his own admission he sat there and talked for 30 fucking minutes. What a dick.And BTW, those Kii speakers he keeps going on and on about sounded like shit. Worse than the Davialet speakers and that's not easy!
I think being called a self important bozo is just about the nicest thing anyone has said to me in a long while.
You should have seen what that guy said when I commented on a review that said the bass from the Kii3 was heard but not felt... all I said was small woofers don't provide the kind of impact larger woofers do and he got really nasty.
Quit being self important and just understand you're wrong.
OK, that's it! I hereby demand that Tyson and Pez rethink their retirement (from RMAF coverage) and think about doing one more:the "2016 RMAF Self-important Bozos Coverage (squeeze the wheez)" !!You guys could do the whole thing with EVEN MORE attitude, physically hush people who are bothering you...hell, get thrown out!! Why not?? It's your last show! (Of course, bozo noses and big red shoes required for future shows so Marjorie and gang don't recognize you on the "do not allow" list.)
