I voted for the Salks, Tekton's, and Paradigms. The Salks mostly from the positive impressions of them from Joe while researching his speakers. The Tekton's from some online reading I had done and it seems people are impressed by them. I have heard the Paradigm studio 100's and Signatures in person and they're impressive.

Re: $2,500 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

Opps!!!! I didn't see the limitations on how many to vote for

I would limit mine to the Asend with the Raal Tweeter, Tekton Pendragon, and the GoldenEar if I must choose only 3! That was a mess of good speakers in that list!!!!!!!!!

Re: $2,500 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

Interesting voting so far. I am not surprised that Salk and Ascend have a lot of votes, although I was kind of hoping for some new blood. Still, it will be an awesome shootout. I can't think of speakers more different than the Songtowers vs. the Pendragons.

Wonder what the surprise speaker will be?

Re: $2,500 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

Wow, this is going to be tough! I've been reading about these speakers all morning. I want to hear more than just 3 of them, really!
That being said I narrowed the list to the ones that I think I would like to consider for my system. Considering many factors, my picks are:

1) Ascend Acoustics Sierra Tower (RAAL Tweeter)
2) MartinLogan ElectroMotion ESL
3) Salk Songtowers RT (RAAL Tweeter)

I must admit, I'm impressed with those RAAL Tweeters, and I have to see how they compare to the ML's panel.
And even more than that, how they compare to the ARX A5's that we picked in the last shootout.

There will be 6 speakers ... but you only get to vote on 3. We pre-selected 3 before the voting began.

Re: $2,500 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

Hey Sonnie,

I saw that, & I like the way you are taking care of the sponsors. I'm also hoping I know what the suprise speakers are going to be. I think I have it narrowed down to two of our sponsors, man I hate/love surprises!!!

It may become necessary to dole out a few hints as we go!
