Thanks for the invite jbrown
I like your recliner
Anyways, really enjoyed listening to everyone's speaker. Especially the people. It was great meeting some people finally that are serious into these kind of stuff.
Okay... guys I'll be blunt
I am not going to compare since I have never really heard of the tracks in a live situation or during recording, therefore, there is no real reference point for me to go by.
So I would only have a preference to certain speakers and won't be able to judge based purely on the accuracy of the speaker...
Please, note, I maybe biased...probably partially because I bought myself a set from Nathan...
Personally, I preferred 6.1Ps and 8.2Ps for vocals and instruments because of the way it was presented. To me it sounds complete and smooth without loss of detail, non-fatiguing. This was also off axis as well most of the time
For the 1099's, well....I thought they were bright.
After that I didn't really want to listen to the same songs. It's just me, I switch songs a lot. The tracks were GOOD
, but not the kind of music I'd listen to, however, I was happy since everyone else was
As for movies, I think they were a good choice for the clips. And that one with the balls was interesting.
As for movie viewing and subs,
I think we all liked the 18.2. It responded like the usual, tight with ruthless accuracy with plenty of SPL to back it up.
For the Quads, Plenty of SPL, could use some refinement.
This is personally my opinion and totally respect the guys that brought their speakers. I think you guys did a great job on them.
