  • Genesis Prime - Lunch and Running-in Party

    As a matter of course, we always run-in all of our products before shipping them out. This is because like a fine wine, the initial aging can be quite a roller-coaster ride. They may sound fabulous right off the production line, but then go down and dumb for a while, before coming back up. There can be periods of goosebump-inducing thrill, but then those are mixed with dumb and dumber. So, we do try to get the speakers far enough down the run-in cycle so that the new customer doesn't get buyer's remorse during one of the dumbest period.

    The Genesis Prime is the latest iteration of our largest system - the G1. With twenty-four 12-inch servo-controlled woofers, 56 ring radiator ribbon tweeters, two 75-inch (not a typo) ribbon midrange and an included twelve channels of Servo-Controlled Bass amplification, it is very large and complex, and does take a long time to run-in. The cycle is not only long, it has big ups and downs.

    Because of the huge size of the system, it takes at least a couple of days to set-up for running-in. Since it takes so much effort anyway, we organize a party around the running-in when we have the time and resources.

    With this new pair, we do have the time, so, we have the launch of the new Genesis Prime at the Genesis premises Friday, July 8th 5:00pm till late. I would like to extend an invitation to my AudioNirvana friends, their friends and family to the party. I promise great music and good food. If you can't make it on Friday, the Pacific Northwest Audio Society will be having their Summer Social the next day with the Dragons. Saturday, July 9th 4:00pm till late. You are welcome on one or both days!

    RSVPs on this thread please.

          Some pictures from the party.....

          We had a blast precisely because we didn't have to showcase any equipment, but just played music - recorded AND live.

                  By late August, this pair would be long gone. However, we would have a pair of Quartets - also 4-tower, but one size smaller. Would love to have you visit if you're going to be in Seattle.
