Hmmm, not sure about that moniker.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Oh... and by the way... the Catalyst 8c's from Mark have never been reviewed, so you can look forward to a full review by the all new SEAHARC (SouthEast Alabama Hillbilly Aficionado Review Crew)... in a separate thread of course.
If Mark brought the Cat12's as well ask him to run them with the "secret" full range DSP setting. Prepare to be amazed.

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

Nah... his Jeep was loaded down as it was with the 8c's and the stands for them too... along with his luggage. He packs pretty big for such a small guy. He did say he has a secret DSP setting in the 8c though. Should be interesting.

We are about to watch "Pacific Rim" with our surprise 5.0 home theater system - can anyone besides Jim guess who it is and which speakers these are?
Hey it's Mark Seaton! Those are the Catalyst 8C's if I'm correct He made a comment today on FB on the HTS page and I wondered if it was gonna be him who brought the surprise setup! If you've never had the opportunity to hear any of Marks designs you REALLY owe it to yourself. He's a mad scientist genius and I'm blown away every time I hear his gear. Enjoy for sure!!

I think about speakers for hours every day. I believe it is mental illness.

We are just about to listen to them in 2 channel, then a movie later. Another very exciting opportunity!

Oh I quoted the original picture before I got to this page and saw that they are in fact the 8C's. Awesome!!

Quite right sir! Mark did say that you and Jim would be the two to recognize him.

I am the fortunate one here - I have heard the 12Cs and the 8Cs before today, and multiple times so I knew the treat the rest were in for..

Ask the man something -- anything! -- about audio and guaranteed he has an answer. He forgets nothing, and if he hasn't done it himself he's done research on it. Ticks me off actually, because I can't remember half of what I've learned along the way...

BTW, tell him he still owes me a phone call about the MFW Turbo I'm reviewing.

Yeah I just saw Mark a couple months ago at our friend Kris Deering's place for a GTG he had there. Always good to see old friends Seaton was one of the first industry people I met when I got into the hobby back in '05.

Enjoy the 8C setup, I'm sure it sounds absolutely KILLER in that room! Mark knows his stuff for sure
