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).
Probably the Atma-sphere M-60s couldn't drive the Calypsos.
Random quick thoughts.Salks were excellent in both rooms. The Bamberg room was very very good IMHO. Anyone else hear the Ayon Blackbird? Seems to use the BMS co-ax compression driver. I thought it sounded very good.I did a hit-and-run in the GR room. Sounded OK, but they were playing something from 'The Wall' and there was some brightness. Quote possibly the recording. Dynamics were good, but still shy of what I get with my U15's in a 200 sq ft room The product that may have made the biggest impression was in the Music Hall room. They had a pair of powered monitors with built-in i-pod dock that were really really good for their $700 price tag. Apparently it's basically an Epos speaker with Creek amplification.The Napa Acoustic room also had some interesting bargain-basement gear - a couple hybrid integrated amps that were rather attractive and sounded better than decent in a quick listen.
Wonder why the Atma-Sphere wouldn't mate well.
The Deadalus room I actually liked the best was the smaller one with the First Sound preamp and little Berning OTL. Very nice setup.
OTL's don't mate well with low impedance. Put the Speltz ZERO Impedance Autoformers in and try again 12, 24 or even 48 ohms. The Atma-Sphere will kick serious butt under the right conditions, but fall equally flat under the wrong conditions.
