Any reason why B&W CM9's aren't included? I know they're $3,000/pair, but a couple others in the list were the same price.

I'm really just curious to know why they aren't in the list. Not good enough?

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

New member here...still reading all the fine threads on the Forum.

My vote was a bit biased...I have the Ascend Towers with RAALs. I was looking at some of the other speakers on the list so I voted for my other top Two. Golden Ear and Salk Towers.

One major item that swayed me from the Goldenear speakers was their much smaller and less powerful surround speakers. All of mine (all 9) are all Ascend Acoustics speakers for matching tonality.

I was not able to hear the Salks so this will be interesting if they get into the final 6 for testing.

I realize I have no track record here, but as a longtime pro audio engineer I would love to see some Focal speakers in the shoot out. I have the Dome at home in a theater area and several of their pro line beryllium for work. They are spectacular.

Somebody care to bring me in, real quick?
You just missed the first post is all... $4,000/pair is a bit out of the $2,500 average. We capped it at $3,000 MSRP.

Can only get them in piano black and I only wanted non-sheen black speakers just in case I decide to keep a pair. Later on when it don't matter, we can get whatever finish there is... won't matter then. This will not be the only round.

We did include them in the first evaluation, but they are discontinuing all of their current models in the price range we are evaluating, so we figured we would wait on the new models and maybe get them included for voting on the next round.

I voted but for whatever reason it only let me vote for one. Then I received an email saying I hadn't voted yet on this poll. Weird? Sonnie could you help me out with this? The only vote that went through was for the def techs.

It is a multiple choice poll... did you try to vote for more than one? I don't think anyone else has had any problems. If it were a problem in the system it would effect everyone, not just one user.

You likely got the email after you had voted.

JTR Noesis 228HT? Seem to be all the rage lately
I'll be purchasing the JTR Noesis 212HTs tomorrow so they have my vote and it would be great to see how the Noesis would match up with these more popular speakers.

I voted for the Paradigms, the Salks and the Maggies - they seem to be doing pretty well!
