Sonnie, you have a nice setup there. Hope all goes smoothly, as those events typically have hiccups that get put you behind schedule.
Not gonna happen! Maybe. Hopefully.

Sonnie is pretty good at keeping us on target. On the other hand, hiccups can be great learning experiences, and make for great stories later on, which of course we will share. If not too embarrassing.

This looks to be a really fun event with some high quality equipment and speakers. Since this is not a shootout, there is no pressure to try to find the "best" speaker (which is highly subjective because everyone has different tastes).

Agreed. I would not be surprised if each evaluator chose a personal favorite, giving his reasons for that choice. But that might or might not happen. We have not discussed any specific goal beyond simply evaluating in detail.

I had a chance to play around with the Martin Logans at my local AV shop, we spent a few hours finding the perfect position for them in the show room. We set them up with a 2 channel NAD amp and as a pure stereo setup, and the speakers just disappeared. They have one of the most immersive soundstages I have ever heard! Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to give any of the others a listen.

Wonderful! Looking forward to a similar experience in a few days!

That is an impressive list of equipment! And some impressive speakers to be evaluated! I hope that someday I can afford speakers and other equipment as nice as that setup. Maybe I can find the winning speakers used in my price range down the road when I am in the market for an upgrade.

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

Had been lurking in this thread but wanted to post because I recently got a listen to one of the speakers (Emerald Physics) up for evaluation. While I knew that the dipole woofers wouldn't pressurize the room, I was surprised how much impact they delivered nonetheless (they really do move some air).

The coax driver threw a detailed soundstage with terrific phantom imaging. The soundstage seemed to float above the speakers, maybe due to the baffle being angled back (careful with ceiling reflections). Will be interested to see if any of the participants in this comparison hear something similar from these speakers.

Looking forward to reading the evaluation and seeing how the Emerald Physics compares to other dipoles in the comparison.

I am curious to know how your impressions of the Emerald Physics will be in Sonnie's room vs what you heard at RMAF. I wonder if they will have a more consistent soundstage.
