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.

We have plenty on our server, BUT I can tell you our home ABSOLUTELY does not have the bandwidth available. We are on satellite Internet and if we calculate the current monthly usage, we can't even stream a movie from Netflix without exceeding our bandwidth limit per the FAP/DAP (whatever it is).

Don't let the low wattage #s fool you. It's a serious amp. Living in SoCal I can hear just about anything I want and I have a list of units that can't do what this amp is capable of. Including that anthem and the rogue Cronus magnum.

Dynaudio Focus 260, Focus 210C, DM2/6
Marantz SR7007, NaimUniti2, Pro-ject 2xperience, Naim Stageline N

They rate it... not me.

So you have actually double blind tested the Anthem and the Rogue huh?

It would definitely be interesting to get both the Anthem and the Naim in a DBT. The Rogue is a different animal altogether. (Probably for another thread, so I won't digress.)

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

Don't get me wrong they're excellent amps. And have loyal following for a reason. I just won't give up mine for anything I've come across yet, or it costs me too much money. No never done a DBT. Have had a few accommodating dealers let me bring my setup in to compare or my Dyn dealer who doesn't sell naim has let me take a few things home for a week at a time.

I'm definitely looking forward to the event and the results. Judging by the fantabulous job for the $1,000 speaker event, I'm sure Sonnie and team will do an excellent job. I'm interested about the Paradigm and Magnepan and how they will compare to the Arx A5 and the rest of $1,000 line up.

can you webstream this event or would the server requirements be to intense and expensive ? I think TWIT uses cachefly for bandwidth of videos. this would be a great podcast as well.
why not just use youtube.ive seen video's there that have had 10's of millions of views.

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

Big thanks to Sonnie and crew for putting together another great shootout!

I havenít heard any of the speakers personally and this will be a big help for me, and Iím sure many others, making a decision on a purchase.

A speaker that has a solid but not bloated mid-bass and that is not Ďbrightí in the higher frequencies is what I would keep an eye out for.

That settles it, no live web streaming, sorry. I was afraid it might be satellite.

We will still do what we can to capture the more interesting parts, like maybe the speaker setup sequences, and with minimal editing I can upload them to YouTube when I get back home. That will have to do for this round.

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

I have to say I'm very excited to read about another speaker shootout here at HTS. I was hoping to see some RAAL ribbons in the mix since I personally would like to audition some but maybe next round the votes will ring in. I'm curious to hear if Audyssey XT32 will be utilized in the shoot out for each evaluation in addition to Pure Direct.
