There is a pair of the new Studio Monitors in the Columbus OH area for anyone that would like to demo a pair.



Here are the details on them: https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=160647.0

E-mail me all of your information.

And right now I am trying to keep them in that area so that they can be handed off to each other.

I'm in Louisville KY and would love to demo these if possible.

How big is the woofer and what is the price?

How do you think these would compare to a set of Harbeth SHL5+ 40th Anniversary speakers?  I wish I could demo them or hear some GR research speakers but, I live in SC.

The X-LS Encore crossover by comparison is a hot rod under the hood.

They look like Wima caps. Haven’t seen those used in a loudspeaker. Typically used in mid to high end front end gear and amps.
Good caps, but small value usually. Not sure what the thought is on those in this application.

In a loudspeaker, I’ll stick with Sonicaps bypassed to best match the desired effect.

So I think I understand that there are different types of capacitors based on the materials used and how they are constructed....what would make these you mention better for electronics than for speakers, potentially?

Hi all - are the pair still up for demo in Columbus area?  Also, any GR Research owners in the Cleveland area that would host a demo?

I doubt that. I think they might be panasonic polyester but not sure.

Peter ordered a pair of them and he is looking at them and thinking about a flat pack.
