Hey, guys, thanks for starting the thread. I appreciate you Triad dealers who have stepped up to buy demo systems, especially when lots of speaker companies give stuff away to buy your hearts and minds. (I can't afford to GIVE away an 800 lb. Platinum system.)
I'll lurk and try to answer questions. To find a demo in the Bay Area, e-mail Mike Bradley at firstname.lastname@example.org
and tell him I sent you. Triad is mostly in custom dealers, and we have little retail presence, so sometimes a demo is hard to find. If you have a problem, contact me.
And indulge me in a short explanation of Triad...
We manufacture a full line of custom speakers for what we believe to be the best possible sound with the best integration into the industrial design of the home. We have three, four, or even five versions of the same speaker so there's an appropriate speaker for any application. (The Bronze LCR, for example, has an InRoom, InCeiling, InWall, and OnWall version.) All our speakers are designed with a fully-engineered sealed enclosure for accurate and predictable results. Because we actually make stuff here, we offer custom paint matching for free, and we can even make pure custom solutions for problem installations. We only sell through authorized CEDIA-type dealers. We use lean manufacturing techniques, and we build to order, stocking no finished goods. We use all water-based finishes, no harsh solvents, we love our mothers, we've never kicked a dog, and we never exceed the legal speed limit.
