I will be doing some comparisions with the Dana 980's (when available) with my Dali Helicon 400's. I will post my thoughts and anybody else who stops by to listen.
Funny you should be planning that -- I'll be comparing my new Dana 980s when I get them to my buddy's Helicon 800s.
Should be a very interesting comparison. My expectation is that the Helicons will be better, but I'm very curious to see just how close the Danas will come for ~ $2000 less. I think they'll make TAI proud.
Craig, glad to see you back but I just got caught up and saw your posts regarding your sister. I know words don't help very much but my thoughts are with you and your family.
Great to hear there will be a pair of Salks in the mix! I've been curious about them for some time. Speaking of Dalis, it would be great to see an appropriate pair of Dali speakers in the fray as well, though I'm not sure which line to suggest as they have several with models in the right price range, and dealers can be hard to find if you're not in Southern CA (which I'm not).
I think including the Paradigms is a good idea since they're so well known and popular; it'll give a lot of people a familiar baseline for what folks are hearing in comparison. Along the same lines, would a pair of B&Ws work? I believe the new 600 series has a tower or two in the right range...
I'm curious, this time around Craig do you plan to do a big GTG like the Sept. one or are you simply inviting folks to come by as they have the time individually or in small groups? Just wondering.
Very much looking forward to how it plays out this time!
