TAD roomTyson - What more can I add? Best sound at show on the first day, and not by a little. In fact, thinking back on the last couple of RMAF's, this might be the best I've heard at any show, any year. $37k? I'm sure I could sell my spare kidney to someone....
I was a big fan of the imaging of theses, not sure if it was dipole or the room treatments, not quite my cup of tea.
I'm a bit confused. What isn't your cup of tea?
TAD roomAll I can say is holy shit!!!! Dynamics and pop like you wouldn't believe!!!! Whatever track we walked in on had drums dynamics that made you feel like you were shot in the chest. Wow....Now we're listening to Tyson's reference. Sweet violins and heart breaking emotion here. These speakers are the real deal. And the front end is pretty damned amazing as well. Don't think of these speakers as 'bookshelves' think of them as floorstanders on pillars and steroids. Bold sound great bass control, sweet midrange. Very detailed sound in ani difrancos vocals. Yet not analytic at all. Can you tell that I really love this room? Pretty sure this is my favorite thus far. Very emotionally connecting presentation I don't feel like there's anything they are doing wrong honestly. Perhaps not as warm sounding as some of the Daedalus speakers, but certainly not sterile either. Tool sounds very rockin!!!! No fear or anxiety with the huge dynamic shifts and great control overall. BUY THIS SYSTEM NOW!!!!!! Even out of the sweet spot some of the round the room effects are really circling my head. Amazing simply amazing. Tyson - What more can I add?

First sound/AMR/Daedalus. Sounds is full and delicious. I really like the great job of setup. Sweet sound and no hint of congestion or yuck despite the lack of treatment this is one of the more balanced and controlled rooms we have been to. Emmanuel always does a great job with setup. The Athena's sound worlds different than the Modwright room. I would say my preference is more towards this rooms sound if I had to make a choice. Tyson - It's official, I DO like the sound of the Athenas better.... Especially using input #2. Emmanuel will get the joke, even if you other plebs don't
Serious audio Daedalus and galibier TTs. Overall I liked the sound quality. Speakers were definitely to close to the wall. Sound was somewhat congested. Volume was pretty low, but what do you expect from 1/2 watt. Tyson - Good tone, beautiful speakers (gorgeous woodwork), but were dynamically compressed. I heard the same thing at Pez's house with his SET amps hooked up to the Ulysses. These are efficient speakers, but they need more juice, IMO.
Daedalus/bolder/modwright/first sound. Sounds very nice in here. Speakers are properly distanced from the wall and the sound is much more easy than the previous Daedalus room. Tweeters on the Daedalus are a touch lacking in certain ways. Not very huge on detail etc, but not offensive. Overall I love how natural it sounds, but then again many will think that I'm a bit biased as I usually like/love Daedalus setups. Not much to say other than this sounds very nice. Tyson - The room this year sounded good, but not as good as it sounded on Saturday last year. Tonally they sounded very nice. In fact my notes are effusive about how nice they sound from a tonal standpoint. After hours a couple of changes were made and they started to snap in to focus a bit more. Will have to revisit this room on Sat or Sun.Tyson - the ever-gracious Wayne! In fact, both Wayne and Lou are great guys and awesomely fun to hang out with.
i bet you like these better, because the use of a single tweeter prowides better focus. the ulysses, w/its two offset tweets, doesn't get the treble focus as well, i suspect. having never heard either of these, it's all speculation on my part. i'd certainly love to hear them, as well as hearing their sc-823's, at 97db-efficient, and 35h-20khz +/-1.5db...doug s.
The Ulysses tweeters are not offset. The offset tweeters are in the Daedalus DA-1.1s. The Ulysses image better than the DA-1.1s (pinpoint imaging in fact, as well as any speaker I have heard), but the 1.1s have a wider sweet spot and fill the room with sound and a stable soundstage anywhere in the room. Both are tonally very accurate with great dynamics.Laura
Scott,Soundsmith speaker images? Make/model? Thanks!
i understand the tweets on the ulysses' are not at angled offsets like the 1.1's, which are not in the same plane, but are actually canted a few degrees from each other. but, w/the ulysses, there's clearly still two of 'em offset on the front of the cabinet even tho they're in the same plane, unlike the single tweet on the athena's. i wonder how the ulysses' would sound w/a single tweet instead of the pair. perhaps you might lose a db or so of efficiency and another couple db's of ultimate spl, but i wonder if they would have better focus.in any ewent, as i have said before, it's mere speculation on my part as to why tyson would prefer the smaller athenas, as i have never heard either, tho i would love to...doug s.
