All these northerner's! I might as well keep the recent trend going...

Great Falls, Montana
7.1.4 Atmos/DTS X setup that's actually a 7.10.8

Polk Signature Reference Theater (SRT) x4 - FL, FR, SBR, SBL
Polk CS1000p x1 - Center
Polk FX1000 x2 - Surround Left, Surround Right
Polk RC80i x8 for Atmos/DTS X Ceiling Heights

Woofers...
Polk SRT Subwoofer x4 (2x10" woofers in each)
Infinity Kappa Perfect 12" DVC/Variable Q x2


So that's 75 total drivers (12 woofers, 46 mid drivers, 17 tweeters) with a total claimed input power of 15,410 watts @ 4 ohms.

Yes, it's relatively loud

Revel Ultima Salon2s in Nashville. Open for business if somebody would like to hear them in a fairly optimized home setting.

Don't have anything on your list, but do have Ascend CMT-340SE L/C/R and HTM-200SE surrounds. I notice you have SVS Ultra Bookshelf, so thought these may interest you. I'm in the Bay Area, PM me and we'll work out a schedule.

This thread is a great thought, but the list on page 1 is never updated. My post sat for months before I finally removed it. Nobody wants to search through 300+ posts to maybe find somebody in their area.

I noticed that too. There was one fellow who recently posted about his system in Quincy MA. Now that's not all too far from me and I'm occasionally in the Boston area working. Sorry friend, don't be offended but I've already heard enough Klipsch speakers to satisfy me for a lifetime.

Anyone coming near central MA who isn't tired of hearing KEF R series can still contact me for a demo.

KEF R500, R200C, R100, SVS SB2000 sub, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 TT w/ Sumiko Pearl, Bluesound Vault2, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer.

I haven't read all of these posts but there is only one member listed in Canada on page 1. They only live about 20 mins south of me and I'm in Barrie quite often, but Klipsch doesn't interest me either.

I feel that I will be very happy with the Phil 3s. I really like what I have read and my interactions with Dennis and the things he has said. The overall feedback on his speakers is outstanding.
Our listening is a combination of casual, and critical listening to music and HT. Critical listening time tends to be short 5 - 15 minutes at a time. Hard to find enough listening time.
This will be my first speaker with a ribbon tweeter.

Leslie, did you ever get some Phil 3's?

No, but if you ever want to hear some KEF R series....let me know.

BTW, if you take a ride north of Route 3 and get off at Exit 36 (last one in MA), turn left at the lights and go north on Route 3A just a mile, there in front of the Best Buy is a great dealer, Audio Video Therapy. They have at least two dozen different stand mount/bookshelf speakers you can demo. A list off the top of my head:

KEF Q100, Q300, R100, R300, LS50, Reference 1
B&W 686S2, 685S2, 805D3
PSB Imagine XB, Imagine B, Imagine Mini
Paradigm Atom Monitor V7, Mini Monitor V7, Prestige 15B
Linn Majik 109, Akudorik Passive
Audioengine A2+, A5+, HD6
Aerial Acoustics 5T
Bryston Mini A, Mini T
Harbeth P3ESR, C7ES-3
Klipsch R15MP, R16M, Heresy
Totem Mite, Dreamcatcher, Rainmaker, Element Ember, Element Fire
SVS Prime, Ultra

...and more. Plus some trade-ins, deals on demos, etc.

Worth a trip or three.
