Well, the new Da-RMas with AP upgrade have arrived safely and just to repeat what everyone says, photos do'nt do them justice. I am afraid I can not give a comparison with the the normal version, which I only heard at RMAF, too long ago to remember, but they sound phenomenal. I would have liked to consider the Ulysses, but they are too big for my room.
I am playing one of my favourite CDs through my Modded Resolution Audio Opus 21 through my trusty Viva Solista, an 845, 22 watt SET, Shawn Colvin's "Cover Girl". It just sounds effortless, airy, transparent, fast and soo dynamic. In short, it sounds like music, not HiFi. It struck me at RMAF, how many of the top $ systems had ticked all the right boxes, but still sounded dry and sterile, in comparison.
So I am very happy with the speakers and the Crossover upgrade. As it happened I asked Lou about upgrading the crossover, when I bought them and he was already thinking about it.
