I agree with Laura, but I'm going to go a step further and say simply that the Atmaspheres are a bad match for the Ulysses period. I heard the other Ulysses/Atmaspehere room just now and was thoroughly unimpressed. The Daedalus room with just Modright amps is vastily superior, and this is coming from a tube guy. Simply put the Daedalus room went from mediocre to best in show with the Modwrights.

Wonder why the Atma-Sphere wouldn't mate well.   :scratch:

I have a feeling the other room w/Ulysses atma combo didnt have Lou's new bass modules. Not exactly a fair fight. Wish I could hear them :drool:

According to the Stereophile RMAF blog, the Magico room is very impressive.

I know you folks like to support Lou, Danny and other AC manufacturers, but I'm interested in how they stack up to the Q5s in Tower 9022 and the GMA Calypso HDs in Room 1130.

Thanks so much for taking time away from auditioning to post!

Someone, if possible, please report on the sound in the Vivid Audio speaker room.  Preferred models are the V1.5 (integrated stand) and V1s (stand required).  I know they are on display but do not know the location...I think it's a retailer's room.

Did you listen to the GR Research super Vs in room 2024? Describing the Daedalus room as 'best in show' implies you heard every single room there.  :nono:

Yes I did.

And btw when I say "best in show" I mean among the best, and I would say that the GR stuff is right up there as well.

So how did they (Daedalus) compare to your memory of the GedLee speakers when you heard them?

Hey, if anyone makes it into the Madisound room could you please post pix and info of the two new SEAS drivers of which according to SEAS; "We will solve the mystery of the breathtaking sound experience."

Thanks for all of the reports, and have a great time at the show!

Tyson and I were at the magico room and it sounded very nice indeed, but IMO it wasn't anything to write home about. They have a very Ultra Orthodox hi end speaker sound that tends to do many things right, but nothing memorable. I will say as a caveat I am not much of a solid state amp guy and this system is very much a solid state house sound.

Very well expressed.  Exactly my impression of the Magico sound as heard at CES.  For instance, the sound of the $2500/pr MSRP stand-mount Sonics by Joachim Gerhardt Anima was much preferred vs. the estimate $30k/pr Magico.

In the Selah audio room right now listening to some very interesting stuff great overall sound and very nice given that they are not the big giant speakers like every other room.



Can you please repost this pic ... ?

If someone could let me know what model Sony speakers are playing in the Ed Meitner room?

Looks like a multi channel system.

After listening to the Calypsos on Thursday evening, Thom drove home to Erie and brought his Ulysses back and replaced the Calypsos with his Daedalus Ulysses (without the all poly crossover upgrade).
