The real big bucks comes when u want to upgrade to the higher series or when u want a surround setup. the s series surround will probably run you 53000 usd I think. sell all my old equipment I can probably recover 30,000 so need to save up for it.
I've demoed the s series in stereo but never the ht setup. I am a fan of big American style speakers. been using klipsch on and off over the years. was wonder for ppl out there who've demoed the ht setup. would like to know the following:
1.which series was demoed?
2. I am a big fan of "punchy" in your face kind of bass. does the steinways give you that?
3. have anyone got to test the LS boundary woofer? the one that is stackable and it's basically like two front firing woofers?
4. how would the Macintosh mx 151 with mc207 with klipsch ultra II speakers stack up with this system?
5. one of the selling point for the SLOW system is the room correction software. with that in mind, does it mean the room acoustic is not that important? I know that if the room was constructed to be acoustically correct there will be a difference compare to one that is not, but with the room correction software, is it worth it to spend the money on the room treatment?
thanks a lot for everyone's input, will post something once I get mine setup.
I have heard many high end systems from JBL Synthesis to Meridian etc the SL system blows them away.
The boundry woofers are mental. I've heard the stackable versions ie 2 stacked in each corner using 4 dual 12". Mind blowing bass that will punch very hard.
You need NO room treatment at all.
Music reproduction is as good as movie reproduction. There is no compromise at all.
I can not afford an SL system but I can assure you if I could it would be at the top of my list. I love American equipment and have owned many items from ADA to Def Tech BP3000 etc but the SL system is in another league.
