Re: SVS / AVForum weekend in Norway

Guys,

Sorry I've not contributed, we're going hard for another showing of the MTS-01's, Ultras, new Plus subs, AS-EQ1 and maybe even that amp in Los Angeles next week (and no, I'm not over the jet lag evidenced in that photo above yet ;^)

Should have had the new XO photos up already but honestly there's not much to look at (two boards instead of one for fit reasons on the MCS and MTS). They are nice but looks hardly matter with complex designs such as this clearly. Soon as I can, they will go up. I expect not one person to buy these because of those network images. What they sound like is another story. After a furtive first shot, these are speakers transformed. They were good before, now I struggle to recall times I've heard better, or as good. Yes, I know you expected me to say that, but it's true now. Now having used them in many locations, they have been shocking, even to me. Imaging and clarity are startling. And in a venue like you see here in Scandinavia, you know they were pushed very hard indeed.

The amp is about the same "concept" phase as the AS-EQ1 SubEQ was a year ago. Solidly production capable but with some refinement and sourcing still to sort out for the next few months. I've been beating on that 7 channel prototype since CEDIA, and it's in Norway now for still more early testing. FedEx willing it'll show up in LA just in time for another attempt to kill it.

On paper, about 275 watts/ch into 4 ohms (conservatively 150 into 8ohms). Which if you know about amp ratings is more real power than most any mid/high end AVR. With a bit more tweaking we can probably pull more, but won't compromise durability. If it makes it to CES this year we'll be posting some more pics but this is still not cosmetically even close to what "will be" so they'll be rather selective. As with speakers, you don't launch ordinary designs into this crowded market. This is not destined to be an ordinary amp.

The SubEQ worked well in both Norway (time only allowed a very short demo, it wasn't SVS's setup after all) and more extensively in the UK (where the new MTS-01's only showed up as I was leaving). Final price wrangling and production dates are imminent on that (which is the bomb if you don't live and breathe EQ Wizard).

Those that care to see/hear a SVS configured full tilt demo system of all this gear need only trundle out to Burbank CA Tue-Friday, that's next week (Burbank Marriott right next to Bob Hope airport if you know where that is). Contact me if you are not familiar with the Home Theater Forum event Ron Epstein is planning. The main studio events are long-since booked but local attendees can still get into the SVS evening programs (where we and Audyssey Labs and others will be presenting and of course playing things wild, mild and everything in between).

, we might even watch a movie or two. The studios like to throw swag at events like this and some probably will be first prints so drop me a line if you are in the area and can't follow the bass lines from the parking lot ;^)

Cheers,

Ron

Re: SVS / AVForum weekend in Norway

There was a meet in june also. The subsystem was 4xPB13 ULTRAand 2xPC13 ULTRA, but I experienced the subsystem with 6xPB 13 Uktra as more powerfull, probably a result of a different room.

The subsystem in Gausdal was a all time high for me, and I really hope that it will be a new meet next year.

Some pictures from the meet in june.

Front line.




A happy bunch before dinner after calibration.


Very beautiful in Eidsdalen, first picture is from Geiranger, about 30 min. away by car.
