It has been 3 years this month that I first called up Louis and purchased my first pair of Omega Speakers. I currently own a pair of Dipole XRS's with the 4 1/2" Hemptone Driver. I just finished setting up the second Deephemp (Sub)Woofer last night and played the system for the first time. The sound was exactly as Louis described it to be (Why do I ever doubt?) The sound is big! The soundstage when called for is huge, and everything is locked into place. I played Duke Ellington's Jazz Party, and for the first time ever got a taste of what it must have been like to hear the Ellington Band live. Small scale recordings have the soloist/vocalist front and center with a deep soundstage. The house Omega sound of the Hemptone Driver is all there; abundant with Harmonic information and possesing great pace, rhythm and timing.The term I keep returning to is "More So" Every time I have purchased a different model Omega I am reminded of why I was so taken with Omega Speakers from the very first time I heard one. Be it the Fostex Driver, the Visaton Driver the Hemptone Driver, or the Hemptone Woofer each builds on the strength's of the previous speaker's and extends the listening experience.
I have not even come close to fine tuning the system, and my electronics are in a state of flux. I simply wanted to report that a two DeepHemp (Sub)Woofers are indeed better than one.
It is possible today to purchase speakers that start at $20,000 for the base model. These speakers are not built as well as Omega Speakers, do not come close to looking as beautiful as Omega Speakers, and do not come within spitting distance to telling the truth about the music as Omega Speakers do. The purchase of a DeepHemp or a DeepHemp cube or a pair of the same will increase your enjoyment of your listening experience immensely.
Louis, once again I thank you.
