Thanks. KEF didn't.

I have great deal of respect for what you're doing for the DIY community as well (whence I came from).
All the best

No joke. Thanks to you, I had to shell out $1500 just to get serial numbers to buy some R500 drivers to put in my car. My car?! Yep. LOL.

Hah.
Yeah, but where were you 10 years ago, when I was practically begging Kantor (Tymphany) to make "waveguides" and SEAS to improve there coaxes (using the very methods KEF now has)?
I had to "fashion" my own! (with nary a CNC in sight). The DIY guys have it easy now....there is a "waveguide' maker on practically every street corner.

Well, I did vote for KEF (looks like they're in), but I guess Tannoy won't make it, which would have been interesting vs the yellow cones as well. Or maybe not, given the size and damping in Sonnies room.

cheers

I was just giving you a hard time.

Man, 10 years ago I was still living in bliss, rocking my $20 sony headphones and minidisc player while I rode my BMX. Sometimes I miss that ignorance is bliss period.

Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled topic...

I'm liking that my suggestion (Focal Aria) is tied for 3rd right now, looking good!

I think about speakers for hours every day. I believe it is mental illness.

Re: $3,000 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

At my local BB Magnolia store the other day, and they had a pair of CM10's, open box, at $3600, plus an additional 20% off! Trigger finger got itchy, but I resisted the urge...

I'm glad the CM9's are in as a comparison with something I've heard, but disappointed that some others I wanted to hear about in comparison with other speakers won't be in the mix...oh well, I did my part, I voted

Cool list. I kind of hope one of the top four is unavailable and the GE moves up to join Ascend and Salk. Hae fun with the auditions.
