Once money is made, there will be a new receiver and possibly an HSU VTF-15H ?
Btw: sorry for the mess.
Certainly. These are a pair of California Audio Technology Sequoia speakers. Retail is about $160,000 each. Yeah, each. They are powered by three fully balanced amps driving the following... The 1" dome tweeter and two 6" drivers are one 700 watt channel, the two 9" drivers are another 700 watt channel and the 2 12" drivers are the last 700 watt channel. No crossovers other than the tweeter/mids as everything else is actively crossed over with a DSP. They are calibrated to the room and in final setup are toed in a lot more than in this picture.
Front end is a Theta Digital Compli-Blu Blu-ray player and Kaleidescape player feeding a Theta Digital Gen VIII D/A converter. The rest of the equipment in the rack on the left is feeding a theater room.
The sound? Oh my gosh... Dynamics like I've never heard before. The only other speaker I've heard in my life that compares were the Infinity IRS Betas from way back. They remain linear to well above 120dB so if the recording has it they can bring it out. The walls of the speakers are from 2" to 3" (depending on location) of Corian like solid surface material and they weigh 1050 lbs each. Absolutely no coloration of any type.
My 2 channel system at home consists of two Phase Tech PC 0.5's at speakers. One day we had a niece over who was about 2 and a half. She walked into our family room and her face lit up like it was Christmas.. She immediately ran over to one of the speakers... ripped the grill off and punched in the dome tweeter. Was the most surreal thing I've ever seen!! Like she was made to do that...
:-) Unfortunately the crate they came in didn't fit thru the door into the building.. Had to uncrate them outside and carry them in by hand. 6 of us. Then after we had them for a few weeks I had to disassemble them (carefully labeling and de-soldering all the drivers) and pack them up and send them off to be refinished. Got them back a week or two later and then had to get them back inside and solder the drivers back and remount them. Why, you might ask? They were ordered in semi-gloss black as they were made to go behind an acoustically transparent screen.. (originally for another owner) We got them and had them sanded down smooth and repainted high gloss black. Then we brought someone in that hand polished them to a gem quality gloss. The end result is they look as stunning as they sound...
