Sorry to bring this thread down, everyone.
First I am sure that the Revels are super silky at this point in time, I totally empathise and take 100 at his word with the guy that has 6 salon 2's, they should be triple blind tested with the contour 60 esotar dynaudio with weaponised woofers (my next experiment) and the Zylon Ns-5000's, maybe the new magico look like contenders as well. As great as these b-chain systems are we deserve the freedom to choose our amps if passive high spl low fatigue full range speakers can be built, and who better for you to work with with Kevin, who just by what the guy from the 6 revel salon 2's has effectively conveyed to me at least, kevin has vindicated his earlier peccadilloes I am sure, believe me I have a share of mine, which gets back to THXMAN's bigger is not betterthe faulty deduction that Murats phenomenal sounding cr3 mains sounded so bad at cedia when not held down by metal and concrete vibrating out of control on air filled cardboard boxes. But in Murats take a look...
A complete success, MEA CULPA did not translate to the cedia show floor because we were missing the tonnage to anchor the speakers that appear to want to take off like an atlas rocket. And it was my decision based on the success at Hyperion where they work awesome.
And it opened a can of high spl worms, because my goal was just to be past the ref plus 6 that was the limit at cedia 2015, but there are some serious HIGH SPL fiends in this forum who exploited the opportunity to scare off many clients because they wanted to hear ref plus 11, that mark seaton made sing gloriously, but these 4 high spl low fatigue superfreaks aided and abetted me to play the extreme cedia record shattering levels that we did, and the consensus was not to repeat at future show, but the way i arranged the crms in the surround positions coupling with a small 3 seater zone yielded the holly grail of immersive audio in Man From Ungle. with a full 59 objects less than at hand during the gravity premiere, and now the daily stable at the holiday inn express.that is how we snatched the cedia atmos gold out of a perilous high risk abventure.
John Floyd uses the word folklore, it is not folklore if it is first hand attested by the straightest shooter you will ever meet in this field..
Don't bring anything down, no offense, ill let my opinion sit there and delete in a few days simply because i need samsung LED' WALLS and i want to be on their good side, in fact they'l thank me one day.. I think what you are doing is highly honorable, my beef is not with the M2, but with the long in the tooth 97 year old tech.
I am absolutely correct, being my own worst critic, I can show anyone, come to system LOGE when it first fires up that is not my design but the client so one stepped removed from the worm, for the original poster there is immersion heaven in koblenz and istanbul unlike nowhere else in the world. Turkey seems safer now than spain. so as i said , it's there.
I was unaware of the holiday inn expresses breakthroughs until taker and the 6 client project manager pointed out to me how remarkable it was.
For anyone doing a condo come to the holiday inn express, using a paltry marantz 8802. Look I am not interested in mining the forum, you are doing great, my focus is retaking Miami from were i was expulsed by imitators i'n combination with my first Art in video that Joell Silver, Joe Kane and Sam Runco took from under me at Stereophile 94. Alas there was no internet then... so.
I had a unique reference experience in immersion at the gravity premiere, and worked very hard, sometime eating arby's because of financial sacrifices, this is not about me is about the enthusiast which i view as an extension of myself, and I am a selfish bastard , been listening to a minimum 4 speakers since 1974 and never stooped to 2 channels. I am not for everyone, just a few passionate perfectionist immersion bubble-philes with a truly musical ear.
I interact with andrew poulain and continue to challenge dolby for the things they do that leave a gap in my bubble. He is coming to listen to the holiday inn express at Showeast. I have many testimonials from him that are for clients only. I question everything, sorry. Don't take it as criticism because i highly appreciate what you. Believe that my heart is in the right place when i come across with tough love.
I said I was sorry i cut off harman not to look back in 1995, that is before they were in the car audio business, they have done some great work since, still I know which speakers in the alcons line are truly cohesive and those that are not. I can only convince trough demonstrations, english is my second language (which greatly contributes to me coming across as Donald Trump), and I am engineer only through 4 generation osmosis. But have you seen my work? I have savoured the failures as much as the pinch me moments. I am at this 40 years, the first five of the last seven proportionately better funded in the R&D immersive arts than the top three electronics manufacturers combined, proportionately i clarified. What the hell do people have to lose to listening to an intelligent counterproposal to what the Ant Hill is busily crunching over and over.
If It sounds I am unfair , you should see things from this side of the glass. Chill i'll delete the post by next monday (BUT NOT MY EXHIBIT)out of respect to the fine folks at H and Sammie a new good friend. I also challenge a belgian to drop the centuries old justifiable intercountry distrustful animosity to a Dutch product, i hear you bruxxels bolt everything down when dealing with them, but the fact is that they have the solution because america has fallen asleep at the wheel.
