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

That is the message I conveyed, but I have heard they are rather peculiar.

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

Funny because hometheater.com just posted a review of the CM10. At the very least, you know there is a review pair of those floating around.

Their PR rep actually asked me about those. That may have been why he asked me.

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

UPDATE!

B&W has declined participation. It is really a bummer that the top two vote getters have declined. Hey... it is their loss, because they will not get another opportunity.

I have still not been able to get in touch with Focal. I have left 3 messages and sent two emails. Not really sure what else I can do.

I have not been able to get Sandy with Golden Ear to call me back. I have explained to his wife on two occasions what we needed, so he should be aware of it, but I guess either he is too busy to worry with it, or just does not care to participate. We will move on... I will not beg.

I also have not been able to get Polk to respond.

Still pending a response from Tannoy... we hope to hear from them by tomorrow.

Dave with Ascend believes they will be able to accommodate a pair, but we are still not 100% just yet. We are holding on to them for as long as we can before letting go.

Dynaudio is definitely in.

Salk is in, but I need to confirm again with Jim since I read he recently had a death in his immediate family. I am not sure if they might hinder the build and delivery.

I got confirmation that PSB is in with the Imagine T2.

With the declines we have had... I think going forward we are going to contact various manufacturers and line up six speakers without any voting. I would like to include members, but apparently some manufacturers are not listening... or they are selling all they want... or simply do not see us as a valuable asset for reviews... or they fear their product will not review well when there are four down to earth honest reviewers involved that are not going to sugarcoat the review in order to tickle their ears.

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

Too bad! I think that the ones that are declining or ignoring (read not participating) are missing out. It's not like you will be reviewing white van speakers here. All of the manufacturers in question already enjoy tremendous popularity and positive reviews. If anything, they are missing on a chance to elevate their status that much more. One of reason a particular manufacturer finish first in the poll, well it's because there's an interest. I don't think it would negate B&W's reputation if say, they would rank 3rd in this elite group.

Just saying...

Theil has discontinued their SCS4T speakers and their CS1.7 cost $4,000. So they will not be in either.

Well, there is still hope that Atlantic Technology may sneak in.

Who or Where, is The Way, Truth and Life?

Speakers - MB Quart VS05, Boston VS260, Snell K7
Subwoofer - Mordaunt Short Aviano 7
Receiver - Tascam PAR-200, Pioneer VSX-30

If no Ascends, trade their spot for the Phils - interested to hear comparative impressions of that RAAL.
Am I one of the few, or one of many that are most curious how speakers with different tweeter technologies perform in this event?
