What a great thread title..... And arrive they did in a big way
The trio has once again been reunited and so the triangle of power is complete....
Unfortunately, no glorious pics like fugueness has posted but there are some preliminary pics from my recent meet which can be found in this thread.. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1096878
for those that didn't follow only 2 Catalysts made it to the event.
Mark just couldn't bring himself to removing the pair without first adding the matching 3rd... after a best out of 3 arm twisting I gave in to his idea of painfully living with some Catalysts for a few days
Well last night the missing link arrived and after an enlightning calibration session by the master himself it's all dialed in. I'll leave pretty room response pics to Mark himself but they were very nice or my eyes were glazed as it was into the wee hours at that point.
Being that it was quite late, spirited listening wasn't in the cards so I'll reserve detailed thoughts until I've had some time with these animals.. What I can say at this point is that even at the low volume settings my room has never sounded better. I can't really describe it but after the calibration it's almost as if Mark made the monster catalysts disappear.. Now on to some movies at reference level.... Mark I'll be kind to them I promise
Anyway there may be a few opportunities to experience these if you are close to N. Illinois.. I'm willing to host the Chicagoland meet V1.x for those who would have really liked to listen to all 3.
More thoughts to follow as I get a few movies under the belt.
