New Line Force model up and playing with pics.
« on: 9 Sep 2019, 09:06 pm »
I know the room is dark and the pictures are dark, but they are up and playing.





They have got all of the good stuff including Copper Caps.



My initial impression is that they sound a lot like the Super-Mini, but more real, more life like, and a lot more dynamic. With 98db sensitivity the 10 watt chip amps are all these things ever need.

And with the combination of the new GR Neo tweeter and Copper Caps used in these I hear much deeper into the music and hear clarity at a level that I have never heard before with any other speakers. These things take just about every aspect of speaker design to another level.

I think a lot of the burn in time that these are going to get while they are here might happen with me setting in front of them.  :thumb:

They don't show up for me in MS Edge. I had to switch to Firefox to see the pics.

Is loudspeaker lust sinful? If so I need to repent!

Very nice! Looking forward to more listening impressions. Hope you can experiment with some other amps. Maybe something from Gary is still around? 30-50 watts hooked up to a battery?

Interesting.  For me, they don't show in Firefox, but do show in Edge.  Regardless, I'm one of the lucky ones to have heard the prototype, and I've never heard anything like it.

Awesome.

Nice to have these back.

Thank you to everyone who made this happen including our Canadian friends.

They look great, and I know they sound great. 

Sounds like improvements over the original pair we heard as well.   :D

I'm in the "got to hear the prototype" club with Scott and my-of-my these are something else. As for speaker lust, good thing I'm not Catholic.

I imagine they take everything I love about the Super 7 and take it to the next level.  Yes?

Damn, that's quite an endorsement!  If only I had space for them.  Or money, hahaha.

All I can say is wow, wow, and wow! Those are awesome Danny! I want a pair, but will have to save up..lol..Would you say that these new Line Force speakers, with the proper gear of course, would be in the top 5 or 10 on the planet? I know you've heard tons of speakers over the years, so I take your word for these being world class!  :thumb: Can you give me an estimate on what the cost would be if I were to get all of the components and put it together myself? Thanks!

How much breathing room do these require besides standard 3' behind? 
 Would 14'x18'x10 high be large enough? 
Thanks

3' is a minimum and the further the better.

Guys, the time that I spend with the most important tool I use in the design aspects of a speaker is just starting.

Hi everyone,

Where are these in performance relative to the NX-Treme model? Sorry, I haven't been keeping up very well.

Thanks
