  • Large Horns

    While the US audio cognoscenti were attending AXPONA and getting snowed on while trying to leave I was attending a much smaller gathering of luminaries, well more like nefarious friends that marked the end of an era. Our host had finally sold his audio playpen and we were having the last 'Fest to honor the occasion. I thought I would share a couple of photos of the main system in action. Hopefully, the system will all be reassembled in its new home in a few months and the festivities can continue unabated.

      They do move some air and ‘rock’ like no other system I have heard!

          That foot is a steel beam down to the foundation. The speakers are isolated from the structure and can be turned for tuning.

          I always thought that would be the best way to mount audio gear.
