I'm considering these for 2 channel music. TIA
Thoughts? I'll share my thoughts even though I'm a very shy guy. Why oh why are you considering speakers from this company that
- virtually has no distribution
- a website that says coming April 30, 2010 and nothing's there
- a website that literally just has a face with nothing else
- seems to be selling speakers that no one knows anything about by people no one knows anything about.
Why? A while back when I was looking into other
matters, I was doing searches on suppliers pertaining for that other
matter. Well one of the suppliers, CrealM (actually a HK middleman outfit) I believe it was, supplied speaker boxes (don't recall if that also meant drivers) to Gemme up in Canada. That got me curious especially since Gemme claimed their speakers were made in Canada. So, I got this feeling that Gemme is nothing more than a couple of guys buying stuff from overseas and sticking that nice looking Gemme logo on the front without any real knowledge of anything.
Now, you look at their website and it's got a purty picture of a speaker with a ribbon tweeter. A ribbon tweeter! Why those are all the rage now. But there are good ribbons and crappy ribbons and the Chinese are now knocking those off like a bunny rabbit on Viagra for not too much.
Being in Canada kind of sucks when it comes to buying audio equipment. All those fees and jacked prices. I'm sure you can find something like a Salk who'd build for you and you could pick up the speakers over the border at maybe a FedEx place or something.
