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

I voted. Of course, my requirements weren't too scientific. Only based on what I'd like to see reviewed and what I'd probably buy if I had the cash (6 more years to go until the kids move out and I have more spending money!)

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

None of the above interest me really. For that kind of money I'd be interested in coherent, 'projector' like sound control.

Something like the Danley SM60F or SM96 or close approximation. Something with high-efficiency and directivity control is a must.

Is there anything in the list like that?

As a a very early user of B&W (1981) , it is interesting to see how the company has evolved . I will be interested in the review of these speakers.

Being the CM9's are so readily available (for sometime now), I'm surprised to see such a large interest?
Marketing departments are breathing a sigh of relief. It works!!

As Rankin Fitch said: Gentlemen, speaker trials are too important to be left up to juries

cheers

On what basis would I (and probably most of us) vote: close my eyes and point, choose every Nth one in the list, or...?

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

I voted based on what I heard was the best, to me it was the Dynaudio. Then what I wanted to know more about. Since the Dynaudio are my point of reference I picked other speakers I was curious about like the Zu speakers. The Teton Pentagon's have gotten a lot of buzz so I picked them to see how they would compare. I also picked the ascend, and Salk because I was interested in the tweeters and how they compared to Golden Ear. Since I'm familiar with the B&W I left it out in favor of the Dynaudio which I felt bested it and the Golden Ears

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

Soundfield Audio might be the closest - the rest are more traditional hi-fi that doesn't pay too much attention to polar response, DI, total sound power, etc.

cheers,
