If anyone has some Phil 2's or 3's near Washington State (not D.C.) -- please PM me, am very interested in hearing the Phil's soon.

Dennis Murphy at Philharmonic Audio has more measured "Anechoic Chamber" measurements on his Web Site, than the Salk SoundScape 12's at $14K per Pair. In fact, I have yet to see any other Mfg. put together that much data for one to review prior to purchasing some "DREAM SPEAKERS".

You can really see how passionate Dennis is about Audio and the speakers overall measurements.

Once we get some REVIEWS of them of which should be coming soon, we all will have a better feel for all that Measured Data!

I just boxed up a pair headed to Pier 69 in Seattle, and then onto a ferry to someplace that couldn't be too far away. Of course, the dude may hate them. Or Fed Ex may eat them.

The thought of Fed Ex eating a pair of Phils makes me weep on the inside. :P

Hey, that's almost close enough to intercept them with an Oregon Black Ops mission.

MARGARITAS,

DenPureSound really wants the Philharmonic3s.

He can hardly contain himself.

These could be his dream speakers - his last set of speakers.

Its up and running for me.

Sometimes when I use my wifi the site appears down, when I switch back to 3G the site is up. Very weird. Try again in a half hour. It should be back up again.

Hack Hack, Cough Cough They're refinishing my floors upstairs. Very dusty. I haven't had any trouble getting the site whenever I've tried (and the last attempt was a minute ago). But others have reported problems with it and the e-mail. I've alerted my webmeister and he's trying to figure out what the issue is.

Dennis, do you know if your hosting company recently changed anything?

We've contacted the host, and they claim nothing has changed and there's no problem at their end. Weird.

I use OpenDNS, and philharmonicaudio.com resolves to 65.181.151.137, and doesn't work.

For those of you that are able to get to the site, what are you getting for the address?

Same situation here. On the phone it opens right up, on the computer at home it will not open at all.

LOL!

Anyways, something as changed as now 65.181.151.137 is unreachable.

For those of you that are able to reach the site via your PC's...what IP address does philharmonicsound.com resolve to?

That's because the two networks are using different DNS servers.
