Thanks Danny for the video. I have been interested in the NX-octica since it has been out, but you have several interesting speakers that are just as interesting and now these Mini's. Your video sounds nice on computer speakers and I really like the looks of the Mini's on top of the woofer section. Just can't tell how they image and how they would perform with classical music. I hope to hear your products some day. I like the Mini and woofer section being in 2 pieces. I think I need to make it to an audio show in Texas. LSAF Lone Star Audio Fest?
What is the name of the group performing the music and what is the title of the LP or CD?
Hope to see more video from you Danny. Nicely done.
Hope Danny doesn't mind me stepping in here to talk about the sound of the Neo10/Neo3 combo used in this speaker (they are used in my Super 7 speakers too). I'm a classical music fanatic, just check out all my posts in the What Classical Music are you listening to, luv
thread, in the Classical Music Circle
(which I also am the Facilitator for). IME, the Neo3/Neo10 combo is the best pair of drivers for classical in the world. It's a bold statement but I'll back it up with the very specific things that these drivers excel at over all others, IME. Tone
- There's no point in listening to music if the tone isn't right. Music should sound beautiful and it should sound real. Nothing captures tone like these speakers. Imaging
- If you're listening to a large orchestra, your speakers should be able to scale. And the cellos should stay firmly put on the right, violins left, percussion rear left, double basses rear right. Even when all hell breaks loose, you should be able to keep track of what each instrumental group is doing.Detail
- I mean musical detail here, not clinical analytical sound. Another place where other speakers just can't really match the speed and resolution of the Neo3/Neo10 setup. From the rosin of the bow, to the steel tension of the strings to the resonating wooden body, you hear everything and its always breathtakingly beautiful.Seamless Integration
- This is another area where the Neo3/Neo10 speakers really, really distance themselves from the competition. If you listen to any vocal classical music, you know that soprano voice, in particular, gives the LARGE MAJORITY of speakers fits! When the singer really leans into the notes, almost every speaker sounds like there's microphone overload, or driver breakup. In reality it's that with those other speakers, the mid/tweeter just don't integrate perfectly
. And PERFECT integration is what you MUST have. The Neo3/Neo10 drivers DO have perfect integration. Hell, before I got the Super 7s, I didn't even LIKE opera or vocal recitals because it literally hurt my ears when listening to it on other speakers.
Anyway, I've babbled on enough about them. Suffice to say, these speakers are spectacularly good for classical music.
