I also think what ever speakers are selected the manufacturer should offer a discount to HTS for its members to purchase or even all of them. its never about one speaker being bad its just about balance.

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

Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to make the fun. Is there any way a streaming feed could be made available or an after-the-fact youtube video be made?

Thanks,
Mike

LOL, there's no doubt you guys will be on point. I have no doubts whatsoever, and look forward to hearing more as it progresses!

They recommend a minimum of 200 watts and are rated at 4 ohms, thus we have 310 watts for them with the Anthem. However, if needed, we got plenty more power.

As with the $1,000 event, each set of speakers will have their own time in the room, while others are placed in the hallway outside the room. Give us a little bit of credit for at least acting like we know what we are doing.

I like to say that I am looking forward to this happening. I visit a lot of different sites and I have to say this site stay away from fan boy status. They like what they like because it meets their criteria. I enjoy their review very much. Thanks GTS for honest reviews.

Don't you like how music can make a bad day better.

Not sure they will actually be from the evaluation group.
Seems as though someone might have purchased the speakers from the $20,000 system?

Sonnie, my LCR A5s are sounding even better now that I know you bought the pair and would hold their own against the $2500 group.
Now how would you know the A5's can hold their own against the $2,500 group before the eval happens? There something you want to tell us perhaps?

What would make you think that I have "purchased" anything... especially $20,000 worth?

Of course Pam... any photographer that would like is welcome to visit and take a few shots of us guys to use for any of your modeling magazines.

Oh wait... OH I see now... you want to take pictures of the speakers. uh-huh... oh yeah... now I see how it's gonna be with you photographers.

I think we may have to do with our own cameras for this, although a professional photographer would be nice.
Fly her down. You won't be sorry with the pictures. Trust me. Just don't let her drink more than 2 beers, otherwise all bets are off...

Because in response to a question about whether you were going to buy something from this group too you replied "Not sure they will actually be from the evaluation group ". Since all that's in play are speakers from the $2,500 eval group, and the stand-alone $20,000 system, one can deduce that if you haven't selected anything from the 'evaluation group' there's only one choice remaining; the stand-alone system.

Well there is also a 5.0 home theater system that we are reviewing. And you said "purchased" as if it were a done deal. Assumptions assumptions...
