L.A. audio show anyone?
« on: 28 May 2017, 02:34 am »
If anyone on the Left Coast is interested in hearing Nimbus...EMM amps will be using a stunning example of the Nimbus at the L.A. audio show, room 508. Ryan is up and swinging, and these very special "Nuke Orange" Nimbus that he's personally delivering have a pair of AudioTech mids that seem to take this cab to new heights of performance. I haven't heard them, so please...if anyone seeing this show could check out this room and give me feedback on how they sound???

Very perceptive, my good man!!! I think Steve will be tickled pink with this set. The color is amazing! I would never have thought to use a hue named "Nuclear Orange" on a speaker. Until you see it, it's hard to imagine. Everyone that sees it loves it. But what sets this set apart are the blending of the drivers; the mids make these the best sounding Nimbus ever!

So you've heard it?

Thanks Anand, I remembered this thread from years ago! In fact, I purchased Steve's KEF 104/2's back in 2013 so Steve could purchase this long awaited pair of Nimbus. I'm happy that Steve is finally getting his order fulfilled.

I'm sorry Anand, I personally haven't heard this set. This is the opinions of people critiquing them for me before they were packed up for the trip to L.A. A pair of guests were visiting St. Louis fron New Zealand, I believe.

Has anyone had a chance to listen to the EMM Labs equipment thru the Nimbus at the L.A. Audio show yet?

It looks like Ryan is no longer using wavecor drivers given he retired the breezes and these don't have the wavecor on them.

I know that both Ryan and Pete were impressed with the AudioTech mids. They both thought that this iteration is the best sounding Nimbus thus far; and thats what it's all about, right? If we can improve our designs, we will.

I love the AudioTech mids on my Joules.  I know everyone else that purchased Joules went with Accuton.  I have never regretted my choice.

Not everyone. I've got Joules with AT mid and 12" AT woofer on order. Can't wait to hook them up :drool:

I wish I could too Ed, but actually glad I can't. Just have to tell Ryan to make mine sound better :eyebrows:
