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.
I know right?? Evil Audio Genius. He's an EAG. Haha!

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

Ster Trek: Into Darkness on the docket for tonight - been a busy day and ending the night on a movie with the Seatons and Sonnie's subs is a great way to end the day!

We have actually spent the last hour or so working on balancing out Sonnie's subs and integrating the Catalysts. Mark has been providing his considerable expertise - it is quite amazing what they have done to the response. Maybe we can get Wayne to post it up when things wind down....

Amazing contest, I would love to here these in person someday. I am very interested to see which speakers win this contest.
Do people get to here these things in person? or is it a controlled event for processionals in a sound-room?I cannot afford to go to them anyway just wondering.
I am way too far from Rockey mountains anyway but what a cool event! Top of the line speaker shootout.

Fortunately, we gain an hour tonight. This actually will probably be the earliest we make it to bed...

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

Mark seems like a great guy. He kindly chatted for at least an hour with me and two other Denver locals outside the Vapor Audio room over at the Hyatt during RMAF. I don't know if I could ever afford a full Catalyst surround system, but the Submersive is what I aspire to if/when I move and set up a dedicated room for HT.

You guy must be pretty worn out. Can't wait for the results.
