I read that myself. I find that I usually agree with JA so obviously whatever was wrong with the system when we were there got fixed. As I said, something was definitely out of phase when we were there. No speaker that I know of has NO Sound between the left and right if they're set up correctly. Again we were just blown away no one had yet caught it as we were there mid day on the second day of the show. Norm

Amir you can play all you want with the JBL but the solution is way simpler DATASAT ap-20 with Dirac autoeq, there is nothing more resolving than this in the market I assure you. Sleeper of CES2011.

Also the upcoming KAD hdmi 1.4 dts neo x digital pre-processor will feed 1or 2 datasat 16 channel aes ebu units for a whopping 32 channels 11.1 main channels plus plenty for quadamping , biamping and multiwoofing.

Had that polite sounding classe rack be replaced by a datasat and a some D'agostino amps that would have been heaven.

I understand your comments on the Wisdom Audyssey Unit, but it's my understanding that Audyssey room correction is only half of it's purpose, the other half is to function as an active crossover since I don't think any of the Wisdom speakers have crossover's in them.

Does the KAD pre-processor have the ability to function as a crossover so that you can avoid the need for the Wisdom processor?

If you are asking about the AP20, yes.

Can anybody recommend a good dealer for Wisdom Audio in LA? Ideally with a showroom as i would like to demo first.

Also would appreciate a current price list. Pm would be great.

Thank you to anybody who can help.
