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

Being a hardcore planer fan I voted for the Magnepan 1.7's, Martin Logan's and GT Audio hybrid planers. I am very curious about the sound of the GT Audio hybrids vs my Magnepan 3.6's.

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

I picked the Canton and Tannoy speakers for selfish reasons. My local dealer sells them so I can compare your results to something I can hear with my own ears.

I picked the Von Schweikert speakers because I've seen people rave about them on Audiogon and am interested in your opinion of these.

I do question your sanity having another test so soon after the first marathon session.

Thanks for the work!

I voted for the two with RAAL tweeter, and the Pendragons. These three are of the most interest to me for a few different reasons and I'd love to see how they all fare.

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

Hi Sonnie!
(In order to thank you for my waking up from an early hibernation) I just voted (for the Tannoy, as it's the only brand I know of, not in a context of HT, moreover! but in a general way, I used to like the very natural and balanced sound of these speakers; so I would be interested to read a few comments)
Thanks

Sad to see that there is not a Klipsch option in there. Don't know what groupings are being combined for the $2500 number, but would love to see the Klipsch RF-7ii series in there.
