If you live near Los Angeles, they will even demo them in 'YOUR' home. Nothing freaky about that....

Yea. Never bend over in front of the speaker during a heavy bass track.

I like the part where he will pay you $10 if you have heard a better speaker.

It reduces sound craches....FINALLY!!!!



........Regular/conventional speaker creates its own turbulence and makes grainy sound. SS7's soundwave reduces crash of sounds and generates musical, clear, transparent, smooth, palpable, super detail, never boring, and solid images you have never heard before. Look at drawing! Perfect mid range voice! Musical and clean highs!

Never knew they made Cialis for speakers. For when your speaker finds an easy open port plug.

I was just thinking. Question about the SQ of those speakers and the effectiveness of their design aside, I would embarrassed to own those. LOL

I looks like someone took a plate and draped it around the speakers after stabbing the woofer with a paint brush, fork, and bristle brush! If only I lived in LA. Wonder the WAF on those babies? My girlfriend would set me and my speakers out in the alley if I bought those home! Epic.

Those are not speakers, they are art! Modern art!

Did you see this part?

Quote:
The hi-end sound stage and images are produced by delicate balance between your imagination(20%), a good room(40%) and stereo components(40%). The audio listening room is that important that the good room is very hard to get and expensive to make. The balance between 3 elements is very fragile and changes every hours with the condition of your body and brain, electrical condition, surrounding noise, even temperature, etc! You can't musically satisfied with ever changing sounds. That's why you want to upgrade your gears always.

Art, best speakers ever, and enlightenment!

Great find! I love how the "wave poles" are held by fishing line and face different directions in all the speakers. It would be great to do a 7.1 or 9.1 system and get different colored rope and driver surrounds for each speaker.

I can't tell if the hypodermic needle hanging out of the woofer or the rope trim has me laughing more. Or the trim/wave guide/party cup. Or the "technology." This thing is my new favorite speaker! biggrin.gif

When I first started reading the add and looked at the picture of the speaker I thought this was joke. But this guy is serious.eek.gif The explanation of the logic behind the design and the things tied or glued to the speakers still has me laughing. The only place I would expect to see something like this is at a flea market being sold out of a small plastic tent for $5.

Is that "bowl" around the woofer attached with coat hanger wire? I have to be mistaken but that's what it looks like to me.

Browning I'm sure Chris Hanson is available as long as the speakers show up with wine coolers and skittles.
