Hi Tom,Glad to meet you and your wife early on Friday in one of the rooms. I assume the Paul you are talking about is me. If you come back next year, maybe arrive on Thursday night. There are a bunch of AC members that arrive a day early and you can party with us then. I agree that rooms in general were better sounding on Saturday and Sunday, but there were still some rooms that sounded good on Friday as well.Cheers,Paul Mahp.s. I use the Hsu monitors (MK I version) in my bedroom system. Very good sounding speakers at an unbelievable low price. When compared with my other much more expensive stand mounted speakers, (AAD 2001, Heybrook H150) they lack fullness in the mid-range though.
Dev, now that makes me wish I had gone back to the Kaiser room. That was about the fifth room I went to on the opening day of the show. Since all rooms were sounding better on Sunday, the Kaweros might have been the lone #1 choice. The sound was so special when I heard it, I felt there was no need to go back. If people are replacing their MBL 101's with these, that is really something. I just know that would have been the system I would have went home with if I had been a winner of any show system of choice. MBL did tell me to keep watch for a new review from Absolute Sound on the 101E MKII's coming soon.
Hey Paul!!! How are the HSU's as a main in a small room (12 X 16-18)?? I want to run two setups both using the same front end-one with Virtue SS and one with MP-301 Tube?? Watch Tom Paul he and I talk so you know he must be crazy!!
Very nice to meet you Paul. I was there on Thursday but I still had to do the family thing with daughter. her husband, and grandkids. When you met me at the show, that was my daughter running around with me. Wife had no interest for some reason. My daughter's favorite was the $400K YG-Tenor set-up.Do you use the sub with those HSU monitors? Hsu did play the speakers without the sub one time for one of the attendees, and it did lack the fullness as you said. Those must be played with the sub IMO.Tom
Thanks Paul!!! The MP301 will be the amp for those and I can use my JBL sub. I will then have a two systems using the same front end-one tube/HSU and one Virtue/JBL. A buddy is building me a passive remote controlled pre-amp that I'm having configured so I can run the same front end with either amp and speakers. Before you ask I'll tell ya why?...LOL "Because I can, man!"...LOL. have a great weekend!!
Paul I may loose some dynamics but the remote will save me a lot of steps and bending over--I have like zero balance now and my hands are very hard to use precisely so the remote is the most important thing-I never thought I'd write that...
In that case, the remote is the best thing. Do you have a remote for your Squeezebox too?
