SEOS speakers Audition in Atlanta

I live in North Atlanta area. Currently building a dedicated HT in my basement. I would love to audition SEOS speakers to know how different are they compared to the commercial speakers. Anyone with a DIY setup Let me know if I could visit your place for a quick listening session. Thanks.

Any day but Tuesday works for me. After business hours is easiest but I have a somewhat flexible schedule so if you want to do 3 or 4 pm that would be doable.

I replaced my Klipsch F-3 towers with a pair of Fusion 15 Sentinels and have an 88 Special as a center, so I have 3 x 15" horns, horizontally aligned, also in the same vertical plane as a front sound stage
immediate improvement in many qualities; clarity, detail, depth, dispersion, the way they have been blended by XT32
hope your experience will be the same
don't forget to take some of your "demo/favorite' goodies

Little further of a poke, but if you want to demo a pair of SEOS12 horns paired with some Acoustic Elegance TD12x's, I am up in asheville NC. They are in storage actually at this point as I have new HT speakers that are a cut above what the SEOS could do, but for the money, what I built out is pretty hard to beat

Chrisslone,

Thanks you very much to you and your wife for allowing me to audition the speakers at your place. You have a very nice and unique setup and I really enjoyed the sound which your Cinema 88 produces. Also thanks for all those inputs, I really enjoyed the time spent there.

Guru.

I totally agree with you. I have been to many demos in the big box stores and have heard mostly popular commercial speakers.
Before moving to US, my setup had Mordaunt Short speakers.

The Cinema 88's clearly had the directivity and were very clear at higher levels. For the price of BIY builds, those were a lot of value speakers....no doubt about that.

I also enjoyed discussing various things with Chrisslone, which is again added advantage of DIY community.

Sure, you can have em

For a price

In all seriousness, I'd be happy to send you some pics of them as well as let you demo them. Would you want all three? I need to get my last AE driver back in the third one if so. Shoot me a PM and we can discuss details.
