Even though the .7 is on the way, perhaps I should entertain that idea? What’s your next move?

To be honest, I don't think I am going to go that route. I REALLY like the LRS's. I'm adding dual subs. I think that will be plenty for this room. I think the 1.7i's are not needed.

I don’t know how much difference there is between the two models but I won’t entertain the idea of anything bigger than .7 in my small room. I suppose I could sell the .7 and buy your LRS... What color and trim package are they?

And if you did, you don't have to worry about break in.  :D
Black cloth and the dark walnut or whatever they call it. Unless you're up there looking at the LRSs's from the side, you rally can't see the  finish.

I'm already talking to the HI-FI shop I got them from and they'll give me a full refund towards the 1.7i's.
Love my 1.7i speakers!  Not for “huge bass”, but so “silky”.

I love my LRS's and with the new GC's, I am actually very pleased with the bass. Tigjt, fast, controlled, not sloppy or boomy at all. But no matter how good the bass is, they still need help below 60hz. A lot of help. And they are not dynamic in the bass department. No visceral punch or kick to kick drums. Four 8's will definitely change that!

How do you connect the subs?  They look great, by the way. How’s the sound with the LRSs and subs working together?  Thanks.

If he isn’t using a preamp, then most likely high level inputs via Cherry Power.

My Yamaha has a sub pre-out on it. It's very versatile. But, I won't be using it. I am having a passive pre-amp built for me right now that has a set of balanced in for the 1HS DAC that I am getting back.  :D
It has a set of balanced out to go to the Golden Cherries and I had him put in a set of unbalanced RCA out's to go to two stereo subs.

Those are pictures of the person who is selling it to me. I don't have it yet. Soon. And I have used a version of this sub before in some speakers he built me a few years ago. They are VERY fast. I have never dealt with a dual 8 version though. Should be ridiculously good with the Maggie's.

What do you mean by "not for the huge bass?" These babies rock!

Is Cherry the only finished product manufacturer left that actually designs amplifier circuitry instead of just putting pre-fab modules in a fancy box?  Sure, some say they “tweak” the hardware, but if they don’t know how to design an amplifier, how can they know what they’re doing when making changes?

You asked, so i will answer,

Nuprime designs their own patented Class D circuits, Orchard Audio (maybe you helped?) has new GaN jobbies, Merrill Audio has their own GaN jobbies, AGD has their own GaN based Jobbies, Lyndorf (and the original TACT amp) design their own circuits and I have seen several others I cannot remember.  There are two more GaN based in house designed amps about to hit the market ($1600 Class D Audio/Premium-audio brand and the $2500 LSA Voyager).  Most other companies use stock or modified modules from the big 3 (Pascal, UCD, IcePower).....and add their own front end and sometimes power supply to them. 

And then some of us tweak whatever we can to improve the sound.  You don't need to know how to design something to improve the sound.....as every little thing you do can change the sound......so even little things that have no measurement changes can make serious improvements to sound (all based on subjective listening, of course).  If you only believe in measurements than tweaking by ear seems unreal.  For instance, I changed the output filter caps in the UCD Ncore NC400 module from polyester to modified Polyprops and also oriented the outside foil of the caps to ground.  This would not be measurable....yet it was a significant sonic improvement according to all those who tried this mod (if you search, you can read peoples feedback on this forum).  The values were the same so no "technical Class D design knowledge" was needed.  In my experience, everything makes a difference....you can hear all kinds of things you cannot measure.  This has been the classic objectivist versus subjectivist battle that has raged on for years.  Some people only trust their measurement gear and others only trust their ears.....I trust both.  However, the ear has the final say......it is, after all....something we hear.

Your amps have always gotten seriously great feedback.  You are a really great designer.  I hope you continue to make your amps better and better.
