It will be two different speakers, but should give us a general idea. I would think my room will be a LOT better.

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.
You read my mind. I could hardly keep myself from moving speakers around at RMAF to try to figure out what was going on. We have already discussed putting first in the lineup any models that might require more time to get properly placed and performing their absolute best, and I believe the Emerald Physics will be the first we work with for that reason. Plus we know exactly what test tracks to use. The room will definitely be better, and room symmetry, which dipoles are supposed to be more immune to the lack of, but we will probably only have time to work with a room-symmetrical setup. We shall see very soon.

Edit: The dipole design SHOULD be easier to set up. It is because of that inconsistency that we want to allow them plenty of time.

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

I know everyone is patiently waiting to see what the $10,000+ home theater system will be... and what the $20,000+ two-channel system will be. So I thought maybe I would not make you wait any longer and go ahead and show you the $20,000+ system. So, without further ado... here is the entire system:

HOWEVER... you may want to wait. I don't have it completely setup yet and this could spoil it for you. For those who just can't stand it any longer... go ahead, take a peak, but DO NOT share the pic publicly anywhere else. Okay... here it is, for your eyes only:

DO NOT OPEN... DO NOT CLICK THIS BUTTON! >>>>>



Hey... I said I didn't have it setup yet.

Edit: something tells me there's NOT a remote in one of those boxes

No remotes... but there is some minor DIY involved... nothing complicated though. Remember it is a two-channel system.

If I did not already know what was in those boxes, I would say that was downright cruel.

Actually, I am a bit relieved. I thought you had gone totally soft. But no, it is the Sonnie we know and love after all.
