I've heard the 1812's, very impressive. A lovely blend of sweetness and power.
Spill, or the Salks get it!
I told AJ to check this thread out and post!!! I can say he is working on some new things.No Salks here (anymore).
I'm pretty sure AJ knows about the thread.
AJ, how ya doin'! Sad to hear the SAM1s have been retired, there's a lot of people out there who will never get to experience the joy of these things. But I guess that makes mine collector's items, I imagine they're the only pair ever made with the storm trooper white baffles? . Seriously, though, I'll be amazed if you come up with something better that doesn't cost 3K and weigh 80 lbs. Whatever you do, just make sure you make a version in white, otherwise my girl doesn't let them in the house. I guess the custom sub-stands for the SAM1s are no longer in the works, then?
The first Monitor 2 pair will be joining my SAM 1's. Espresso stained oak baffle on piano black cabs. I was going to go OB, but when I found out about the rear firing ambiance tweet, I decided to go back to the source. Also at Axpona they rocked. The dude running a very high end room who was there taking a break could not believe what they were doing, as I was leaving I heard the same test track (Eagles, Hotel California) from said high end room and took a quick sec to listen. The SAM-2's acquitted themselves quite admirably.
Cool! Will they be used in a secondary 2 channel system?
Yup I have two, two channel systems. I tried multichannel, but I just like 2 channel purity both for AV and dedicated music. I should actually should have said the first production pair made and paid for. These will most likely live in the family room, powered by a Class D SDS-254, fed by a mac mini server, with an HK-254 doing AV duty. I have an old 50" DLP tv which I think is going nowhere. The M1's go upstairs, my layout is a duplex down with the family room down, the adjustable bass will allow me to tune for neighbors upstairs, downstairs I can crank . Anyhow I will try both locations. The M2s will coordinate well with my wood flooring upstairs though.
Paul, those look really nice in that dark stain oak. For a second, the first photo looked like there was a carbon fiber thing going on, ha.Interesting stands, what are those?Would love to hear those puppies.
