Nice, I know you guy's are having fun. Keep us in the know how things are going! Are you guys planning on devoting part of the eval to finish. I feel that is a significant part of the speakers cost at this price point. Keep up the good work...loving these evals.

We will be talking about finish. One of the models already evaluated is particularly striking. This clearly becomes more important when one is spending this much on a pair of speakers.

Subscribed. I think I just heard CCC rockin' over here in Mississippi! Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing your impressions and I hope you are all having a good time.

For me personally, finish is always something I look at regardless of cost, so my impressions will always include a blurb about how they look.

The third set of speakers is set up and ready for listening first thing in the morning. This particular model is especially tolerant of position changes. They sound great everywhere we placed them - away from the wall, anyway.

Re: The Official $3,000 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

It seems like there are always surprises in these listening events. We come in with assumptions about what to expects only to find that things are not always as we expect. Some speakers do things that are more than expected and some disappoint. Most have a lot to like, some excel at much more. I don't have any doubt that this round of reviews will be very interesting. As we get better at getting the most out of speakers and at challenging them, as well as communicating the experience I think we get better at giving a picture of each.

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

Re: The Official $3,000 Speaker Evaluation / Home Audition Event

I know this will be a stupid question. Can members attend? I'm from Alabama and dont have many chances to hear good speakers arround here. Also If I had paid attention I would have planned on going since todays the 22nd.
Fishinbob: I bet I can guess which speaker also. lol
