Well, in that case the answer is still no.They sound like the kind of speakers I don't want to hear as once heard you're done.
You couldn't have said it better. This room by a VERY wide margin was the BEST room at the show. I wonder if we were in the room at the same time on Saturday. Probably not but I too was in there for over an hour. I couldn't move. Other than playing musical chairs to get the front seat. I have listened to a lot of speakers and been to many RMAF shows. This speaker stands out over all of them. The way the music was delivered was incredible. Jaw dropping! The Alsyvox guys were looking at me with big smiles on their faces when I was at the front seat listening. They knew what was going through my mind. I spoke to Jean Pierre for a bit, real nice guy and he was telling me about what made them so special. Of course a lot of it flew right over my head but I told him that his speakers gave me goosebumps. That room ruined the rest of the show for me.
Actually, as good as they were, I'd still pick my speakers even if the price were not a factor.
DaveC113 if you get the demo song list could you please post it?
Sure, Here's one: "Walking on the Moon" by the Yuri Honing Trio.
Yeah, I'd agree except I think YG came REALLY close, and their setup and room acoustics were actually far better vs AlsyVox. YG has more density to the sound but I think that would change if the AlsyVox were in a smaller room. AlsyVox also did a really good job choosing their demo music, I need to contact them and ask them to send a list of tracks, because a lot of the reason they got "best" was some of the recordings were just stunningly realistic on the system. I'd love to be able to play my own music in a more ideal room and see what they're really capable of!
I felt that this room was excellent but I much preferred the Boulder-Vienna Acoustics-REL room. And I am a Magnepan guy.
Oh, another thing I noticed. Guess what format they were using for music? Good ole reliable 16/44 CD music. No fancy $50,000 record player, or Tidal or $10,000 High Rez music streamer. Just CD's. And the music was the BEST I have ever heard. I am sure they were using some high end DAC, CD Player or something but still just cd's being spun. Not trying to start a format war but I LOVE cd's and will never stop spinning those discs.
Speakers have the biggest impact on the sound you hear, followed by the room. This is why you see me constantly harping on people doing something to treat their room before spending a ton of money elsewhere. Amps are next (preamp and amp), and DAC/Streamer/CD Player is dead last. So I'm not surprised at all that "mere CDs" sounded so good.
