Re: The Official $2,500 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

I think the MartinLogan ElectroMotion ESL are likely quality speakers but I get the feeling that in the end they won't be the ones ranked #1 in the review. I am very interested in seeing how the review for the SVS Ultra Towers turns out, while they seem a bit lack luster aesthetically I feel they may surprisingly rate high on the list.

Re: The Official $2,500 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

Looking forward to this, as I enjoyed reading through the $1000 evaluation thread.

I would have been interested in seeing perhaps the Salk Songtowers or Sierra Towers with RAAL tweeters in the evaluation as well, but still some interesting products here for sure.

Remember that this is not a ranking shootout... it is an evaluation of several speakers. Each evaluation will more or less stand on its own.

The Sierra Towers with the RAAL will be in the next evaluation round, provided Ascend agrees. Not sure about the Salk yet.

Sonnie: Will the evaluations describe the spearkers' performance relative to the others? And will they be evaluated both objectively and subjectively?

Re: The Official $2,500 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

We are not planning on comparing them, as this is not a shootout for all the reasons previously stated throughout this thread, particularly the first post. There may be some subtle suggestions that a speaker has a very good specific quality and describe it, whereas we may not say the same for another.

We will have some measurements for the speakers, similar to what we did for the first event.

Re: The Official $2,500 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

I loved reading the $1K shootout thread so I'm eagerly anticipating this evaluation. With a baby on the way I can only dream of owning any of these speakers right now.

I would like to see an actual shootout at this price range with the winner of the $1k shootout thrown in for kicks.

Re: The Official $2,500 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

The Studio 60, in all its incarnations, is large enough to be used as a full-range speaker with nearly any program material, and yet is compact enough to be easily accommodated in my relatively small Connecticut listening room. It neither looms over me nor disappears into the space. Used as a center-channel speaker, it's just short enough to clear my line of sight to the video display. Finally, and despite inevitable price creep over the last decade, the Studio 60 still comes in under $2000/pair—my line in the sand for a reasonably priced system.

Re: The Official $2,500 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

Really looking forward to this event. I have some older speakers that were in a similar price range when new, and I'm really intrigued to see the results/impressions the of group, given the current speaker techonology.
