Thanks Ratman, I would try that, but the moderators don't like me so they might not delete it

Could you ask moderator to delete my thread? THANK YOU

Considering your screen name, I assume you're from AK. I was fairly well known there, before I was banned, but I much prefer the science based approach here over the "screw science, audio is magic that can't be measured" approach they generally took.

It takes a pretty good dose of science to optimize the magic part...

Some here may have a little too much "good enough for me is good enough for everyone" in their genes.
edfowler and eljr like this.

I'll be back later...

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.

I'll need to borrow this.

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

My genes are just fine, one question though, did you use to live in San Francisco by any chance?...

Someone over on the {Audiogon Forum} heard these Yamaha speakers and bought them after hearing them. He was raving about them saying he really didn't need speakers but after hearing them he had to have them!.. Go over there on the {Speaker Forum} and look what he said about these Yamaha speakers...Roguemodel was the one that bought these speakers over there.

I thought they sounded pretty d*mn good through my headphones

I decided not to buy them after the live audition. They sounded better over my earbuds and the YouTube video.

Lightbulb

So that's why NO magazine reviews of these new Yamaha speakers...if people knew how good these speakers really were then nobody would buy those very very very very high priced speakers

I'm hopping I can get a pair for $2000 or less...on closeout

This is turning out to be TOP SECRET...let's try very hard to keep this a secret until they go on closeout and they are no longer on the market so I get a pair for half price or less, THEN everybody can RAVE about them then

No secret. Apparently, no one is buying them. No retail stores want to be "stuck" with them. No reviews in trade rags because Yamaha is not known as a "go to" speaker manufacturer.

Stick with headphones until you can find these speakers at a yard sale and rave away.

The Yamaha speakers they made in the past were not that good at all, that why they are only a very few that are buying these new Yamaha speakers because they are thinking they are the same bad "improved" speakers coming back on the market again

That's why you don't see any magazine reviews either!

When Yamaha wants to, they can play with the Big Boys!

Yes, I'm going go get in line now so I can get that closeout price deal later..first because that line might get pretty long if I don't go now

I will let them know in New York that Ratman will be coming there to listen to these Yamaha speakers soon before it's.. too late and they are gone forever! and if that happens, he will have to wait and get a pair off E-bay many many years later!

thank the gods

a bump on an old thread.

Thank the audio and technological gods that the people who did the video used high def high resolution microphones set up perfectly both in distance and yet shielded from the other speaker so as to not confuse the stereo imaging from the off axis speaker in the room AND that the heavy heavy heavy compression and loss's introduced by youtube didn't affect the ability for your head phones to come up with this important analysis .. thankfully none of those things matter as long as your your electronics and head phones are the most amazing on the planet .. source signal . hump weeeee dont need no stinking source signal!!!!!!


setting my Reductio ad absurdum and ceterus paribus aside i really would like to audition a pair of these Yamaha's especially now that sales deals are popping up here and there for them

One of my friends just got a pair of these Yamaha speakers and I'm speechless ! These speakers make you feel like your in the Recording Studio and the Artist is performing for you in your room!..

When these speakers go on closeout, if they are still $4000 a pair, I will still get a pair!....
