Well I want to give hjones a huge Thank You for your southern hospitality.
In case you other readers didn't know, Harry picked me up from the Sheraton hotel in downtown Birmingham and took me to his wonderful home. I first had to play with his new puppy. Yes dogs take precedent. Then it was off to his HT room.
Well all I can say is WOW. Seeing four Klipschorns in that room was a sight to behold. Then of course sitting in front of the front speakers like pawns in a chess game were the four ULS-15s. A Quad Drive in Walnut sitting there just waiting to be abused. Well Of course Harry obliged.
We started out listening to some of the Chris Botti Bluray and some of the Stevie Wonder Bluray. Along with the DVD of the Eagles "Farewell Tour 1".
Well all I got to say is JUST DAMN. Imagine if you will sitting inside a very large set of headphones where the iindividual instruments are scattered around a 360 degree circle. And then throw in the bass from the Hsus and you would never need to go to a live concert again. His system can easily hit 130 dbs without any hint of running out of steam.
We then moved on to some movie demos. We started with the first scene from the Quantum of Solace. When that was over I had to take the time to remove the glass and the bullets from my body. That was how intense it was. We watch a couple of other movies then I showed him the scene from Transformers where the helicopter flys into the air base. Then of course I had to show him the Ironhide flip near the end of the movie at least three time. We both had the same response, grinning and giggling like little boys who just got away with something.
I forgot that you hadn't seen it before Harry, so when are you going to add this to your collection?
Unfortunately we ran out of time and I was unable to hear my copy of Terminator Salvation. But in May I might get the chance when I have to return to Birmingham.
In closing like you predicted Harry, once my Velodynes die I will have to get a couple more of these extraordinary subwoofers. I hope that Hsu does not discontinue this model unless they get a hankering to build an 18 incher. Hint Hint.
