Looks like you will get very good pressurization of the room with those bad boys! Sound quality must be quite good!

Very impressive.

I do know that I can never listen to your, ( or most other members systems for that matter ) because I would never be happy with mine ever again!

I love the Danleys! I cannot say exactly how they might be different from the Paradigm speakers I previously used as they were quite good in my room.

I don't have what I would call a golden ear so take my comments with a grain of salt. I will say that for Home Theatre, I cannot imagine anything better. Dynamics, clarity, they are wonderful.


For music, some can be fickle when comparing speakers. There are those who only love sound from electrostatics, ribbons, or dome tweeters. The Danleys have compression drivers and some will say they are harsh. I wont get into a flaming war over this but (I think) most live music you hear is through compression drivers. it is all about a personal preference. These speakers are very flat and don't roll off as most prefer. I don't run Audessey and have applied very little eq (actually not sure if any - but I do for my subs). At some point I may play with some roll-off.


For music, I love these speakers. The imaging and soundstage is absolutely unreal. You have to sit in the main seat to believe how good these image. Only at Dereks apartment have I heard it this good before (and Derek has only the best equipment $$$$) I had a fellow over recently who played a number of instruments in bands and he could not believe how well the instrument sound was reproduced.

I will have a get-together soon and then people can make up there own mind. If anyone is considering purchase of new speakers, you should listen to the Danleys first. They are not pretty but sound awesome. If you don't like the Danleys, I have a used set of Paradigms available that are not going back in.

I have the HD version of "The Art of Flight". If you have not heard about it, it has amazing audio track and the video is superb. It is an excellent demo film for a get-together.

Congratulations to everyone on our 4th year anniversary of this thread. I know I have made some great friends, and met quite a few guys with drool worthy gear. It is the common experience we all share here that makes this thread great, many of our family members, friends, or coworkers don't always understand our hobby, but we do. And this is home.

Thanks to all for participating!

Oh wow, just finished the build thread of Zuluwallker and I have to say that mesmerized and jealousy were not sufficient to show how I feel right now.

And the icing of the cake, THIS IS HERE IN EDMONTON woot!!!

I can't believe there's a sub-forum for edm members here. I've been a lurker here for quite sometime now but seldom post stuff, more of read and gather learning only.

Someday when I get my own place, i'd be planning on doing the same to my basement, probably 3-4 years from now.

But for now, can I join you guys for the meets? I'd be ecstatic to experience what a premium home theater would be like.

Right now, i have a simple 5.0 system in my apt and a 50" plasma - and I know after i've seen all your gear and setups i'll never gonna be happy again with mine.

Cheers!

Hey everyone,

My wife is heading out of town for the weekend, back Sunday night. She suggested that I should host another theatre get together. The only rule is don't break the house. Not bad. Anyone up for a Saturday of Linn/SVS goodness at Chez Maestro? ;-) I'm flexible with timings so Friday evening, all day Saturday and parts of Sunday are all possible.

Mike

I would be up for it depending on timing... That way I can meet a few more guys before hosting my own in January (once my HT is done).

Though I do not have a theater in my home (after all I live in an apartment condo a little under 500 square feet), it is very cool to see this topic and that there are so many posts in here! I'm glad to see some interest like this so close to home!

Quill,

I am very happy with the Danleys and would definitely purchase again. I purchase two SM60F and a SM96. My short list was Seaton and Danley although I had never heard either speaker so I was taking a big gamble. I had made up my mind to purchase Danley and was about to buy from the US when I stumbled across the local dealer. If I hadnt yet decided, that would have swayed me to Danley. In fact, the Danley dealer (Lance) just left my house.

For surrounds, I continue to use my previous Paradigm (I think ADP590). I believe these to be fairly good but I do have to boost the audio level a fair bit as the Danleys are much more efficient. Danley does have some smaller speakers but I have not heard them.

As far if I like them for music or movies, I am 90%+ watching movies. I think they excel for movies. That I find them excellent for music was just an added bonus.

You are certainly welcome to come by any time to listen to them.

Quill/AltaHomeTheater,

I figured it was time for me to chime in on the forum (this is my first post). First, please keep in mind that I spend most of my time in the pro audio world, which is where my relationship with Danley Sound Labs started. For me, Danley Sound Labs is a vital part of what I do from day to day.

Should either of you, or a group in Edmonton like to take in a demo of Danley Sound Labs hardware, please let me know. I would be happy to hang out with the group and talk audio, system optimization, etc. I may also be able to bring in a DTS10 sub for a listen too...

Stay in touch.

Lance

Welcome Lance!

I would definitely be up for a Danley-based gtg...sooner than later because it would kill me to not have speakers in place for when I move in December....

Welcome Lance,

Glad to see that you joined and posted. I know many of the members here and they are a great group. There are a number starting or working on builds so having a GTG might be great timing for some. Typically the summers are pretty quiet with things picking up once school starts.

I have had a couple GTG at my home and would be happy to put together another one. I personally would love to hear a Danley Sub. I am also curious about the smaller speakers for surrounds. I know many use the SM100 series but I think something smaller like the mini or micro might be a better fit for my room size.

To Quill,
If you have not decided yet, you are always welcome to come over and have a quick (or extended) listen. I know speakers are a very personal choice, but I couldnt be happier with the ones I purchased.

Zulu,

How is everything sounding these days? I imagine two Sub15s in your room has dramatically increased your bass response. Although it was not too shabby previously. Didnt you have a DD18?

Quill/Alta,

I have confirmed this afternoon that a DTS10 is headed to Edmonton. Once it arrives I will let you know so that we can look at coordinating a get together in the near future to do some listening.

I appreciate the audition offers, but I have a crazy work schedule, and the odds of me being in town (and taking time away from family) to audition were slim...so....

I went shopping. On order (or ready for) Dec home (theatre) possession date:

Jtr 212ht for LCR
Dual orbit shifter LFUs
4x s8 surrounds
6x fusion streamline recliners
Jamestown 140" AT Seymour screen
6 Buttkicker advance's pushed by behringer 3000dsp
Oppo 103d
Sony hw 40 es projector
Htpc
PS3
Xbox 360
A kegerator with a draft beer to be named later

Methinks a GTG may be in order!
