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

Wow, you've really got some high quality speakers to test out. Looks like you guys have a lot of "hard work" coming up. I'm sure it will be very time consuming and appreciate that HTS performs equipment tests/reviews such as this one. Looking forward to the results and more importantly the day that I can afford these speakers.

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...
I did indeed say "purchased". However, I also said "seems" and "might"...

Seems as though someone might have purchased the speakers

Context, context

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Then it "seems" like there "might" have been some oxymoronic assumptions in the "context" then...

And you could also be right, but I ain't telling.

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.
We have already selected all of them, but I don't think we can get discounts on all of them.

This is totally off topic, but the last few exchanges reminded me that HTS has the best emoticons ever. Where did you get these things anyway?

lol... An accumulation over the years, although we dug pretty deep when we started up.

Most Dyns like to have lots of juice feeding them. I'm curious how well that little Anthem is going to deal with those, as others have mentioned. Nice lineup. I couldn't (read: too lazy) read through this whole thread, but hopefully these won't be evaluated with all of the speakers in the listening space. I'm of the opinion that those Maggies are going to need some space in order to truly exhibit the imaging they are capable of.
I power my Dyns with Naim XS-2 and it's plenty of power. I use the naim for music and movies, classical to hard rock without issue.

That seems like very modest power.

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

Relative to webstreaming the event, I have fiddled with it a little before. Depending on
  • preferences of all at the event
  • available upload bandwidth
  • convenience
  • it works without any hitches
  • available lighting is enough
  • we do not come up with a reason NOT to...
we MIGHT get something going. Sound quality would most likely be whatever a webcam mic would deliver, it has to be kept simple. If we get something going, we will post an access point in this thread. It is lower priority, though, so no promises.

Wow I can't wait to read the results to this fantastic post. In actuality I am jealous because I would rather hear the results. Being a Paradigm fan I can't wait to hear how they stack up against great competition and price. I don't hate to admit it, I have the audio bug and can't wait for more information about great products.
