      I spoke to them at length they are very well made
      all drivers are field coil two massive 36 volt buss one for each side. 5 way analog low level cross overs
      ten mono amps
      there was an older male American cello who seemed to be the setup guy. I was talking to him about the time alignment and cross over adjustments. He got mad and said it sounded fine. I laughed then a again man white shirt came over to talk to me. He was honest and said yes it's bad lol. He said they had only few Hours to setup
      and it was not done well. As we walked around the setup it phased in and out at certain freq then at those positions it sounded very clean.
      A shame really. Such a well made setup so poorly setup.
      The gold box on top was a CD player that was damaged during tranport.
      While at Oma lic he had big conical horns they were very focused so it can be done. When I went up to each sever it was very clean and clear to me. What a shame such large scale setup so wrong. He said they have sold 5 units in Asian

        I don't get this ESD guys... They obviously have invested reasonable money in R&D and production and then they mess up completely their presence at the shows. At Munich, they were even in a smaller room than in NY.

          Miles,
          as a New Yorker, do you think the northeast would be better served in NJ rather than Manhattan? NYC hotels are notoriously small plus it must be a giant problem with dealers loading equipment.
          What is the actual market like for high end in the five boroughs? I would think that the majority of consumers would be in LI or NJ.
          It’s a shame that the southeast does not get one of the regional shows, I know our local dealers are doing very well.

                One of the better sounding rooms at the NY Audio show. Very easy on the ears, natural sounding coupled with a huge soundstage.

                  They were using a tascam dac for the front end. It was not a great sound nor a bad one just odd
                  did not offend as it was music playing but did not have a attraction to make you want to stay. As for placement I can't say it made them sound bad or good room did nkt boom nor have rolled anything.
