They have regional distributors that you can find listed on their website with contact info.

Sounds as though I need to get msrp on the SH-69 now:-)
post #125 of 705
I just got home from a 3.5 hour road trip each way to audition the Danley Sound Labs Showroom. First off let me say this is just going to be my honest to GOD impressions. For the trip I had to beg my brother to go with me since its makes the drive much easier and plus I needed an extra set of ears to help me in my quest of audio excellence. If anyone has read my posts here on AVS Forum over the last 3 years you already know that I’m a very very hard one to please. I have went through many different brands in the quest to satisfy my hunger. Every time I sell a speaker, projector,amp,processor or screen I also have to justify it to my brother since we are very close and we both like many of the same things. Up until today he thought I was insane with all the so called upgrades. I had to sugar coat the amounts of money that I was loosing on buying and selling equipment. Just a little about my history. I come from years of competing in car audio competitions. So therefore it takes something really special to impress me.

When we first got to Danley we were met by Jeff, Ivan and Mike and a few other guys who I cant remember their names. After asking Ivan on the AVS Forums many many help related questions regarding my 3 DTS 10'S it was nice to meet him in person. He was working on the new Jericho Sub which all I can say is OMG. I was looking around the room and everywhere you looked was a different type of speaker or sub. I was amazed with how awesome and manly everything looked. The Danley Cabinets have that mean look.

Ivan helped me with all my amplification questions regarding the SH 50'S, SH 69 and the SH 100'S. It was very nice to pick his brain about different Home Theater Gear there at Danley. This man has a wealth of knowledge.

For the Trip I brought along a competitors pro audio speaker set so I could do a side by side comparison. They have an electronic switching system in their demo room which allows you to switch to different speakers on the fly without stopping. So you can immediately hear the difference.

We first started off with their smallest sub CS 30which has a single 12 inch driver. It was being played along with the SH Mini. You would be amazed at how well this small solution sounded. Then we switched from the SH Mini to the SH Micro and you could hear the small steps of improvement as we climbed the ladder toward the bigger speakers.

Next up Mike played several music songs with the SH 100'S which I was very interested in hearing since that is what I’m wanting to use for my surrounds. I couldn’t believe the fidelity coming out of that box which has a single 8 inch coaxial.

Then it came time for me to bring in my speakers which has 2 8" inch drivers and a 8 inch coaxial with tweeter. When listened to it against the SH 100 and I couldn’t believe the difference. My speaker sounded very muddy compared to the SH 100. To explain this where you might be able to understand Ill say it like this. The sound coming out was in a straight path from the speaker to the listening area. It was very narrow. Kind of like if the speaker was 12 inches wide that’s how wide the sound was. The SH 100 was much cleaner and fuller. You couldn’t tell where the speaker was. The Danley sound comes to you in a wide pattern and envelopes your whole body. My speakers timing was off. In other words it seemed the 3 drivers were not hitting at the same time. That’s all I can guess. Basically it sounded like a transistor radio from the 70's. My brother leaned over and said wow I cant believe how much difference there is.

Then Mike switched over to the Danley Flagship the SH 50'S. These speakers made mine sound like the cones were full of gobbed up mud. OMG I don’t know what to say. Without any other speakers on and no sub on these sounded so realistic. Again the sound came out wide and crisp and clean. The mid bass was overwhelming. These things sound great without a sub! We played many different types of music. JAZZ, Gospel, Rock and Roll and Opera. The voice coming out of the performers mouths were so real! It was amazing. Right then and there I knew I was buying these! Before going to Danley my brother and I auditioned very expensive speakers from Wilson, Focal, JM Labs, Revel and a few others at this very high end well known brick and mortar store. Heck they even used a 40,000 set of ribbon speaker cables! These SH 50'S were BEST In Show! I also want to comment on the look of The Danley Gear too while I’m at it. I was really impressed how nice a pro audio speaker could look. They have this raw mean look like don’t piss me off.

The next thing we done was to hear the SH 69 which I want to use as a Center Channel. Like the SH 50 the fidelity was great. Its basically a SH 50 with different coverage pattern. Now came the fun part. Mike teamed the SH 50'S AND THE SH 69 and the front stage was crystal clean and just loafing along at 122 db. They were not even straining. Then we began to have fun integrating various sub woofers with this front stage. We were going from the dbh 218, TH 221, TH812 and a single DTS 10. Omega what fun it was. The TH 812 IS A GUT WRENCHING unit. On some songs my pants legs were flapping in the wind. The TH 221 has the look of a muscle man. With its open look into the massive 2 21" drivers it says don’t piss me off. I could not believe how sweet this was. Many of you write about the fact they don’t go down to 10 HTZ. Let me tell you the TH 221 and the TH 812 give more room shake than a trailer load of DTS 10'S could ever do. In that HTZ area of mid 20's to 45 it was in your face chest pumping bass. When I say this I mean it. I think either of these subs could make a person have a heart attack! We were also listening to the DBH 218 and its no slouch either.

The best part about the whole visit was how well we were treated at Danley. Here you had the co owner Mike Hedden , the magenious Ivan and Jeff giving up 4 hours to show us around. One thing that I never had to ask was "Could you please turn that up a little" lol. Mike had it cranking. What a real demo. We went from low volume critical listening to hard core rock and roll. The fidelity of all these speakers were unbelievable. If you want to test your high dollar speakers against theirs they encourage you to bring them along. Just be ready to sell them when you leave! My brother and I talked about the experience all the way home.

Here is what im ordering for now.

2 SH 50 for fl rf
1 SH 69 for center channel
4 SH 100'S for surrounds. One set will be the cinema version which has the slanted offset in the back of the cabinet for side surrounds.

I am thinking of selling my 3 DTS 10'S and replacing them with one single TH 221. I’m really concerned that it may knock off the bricks on my outside walls.

I have to get to bed now. My electrician is coming over at 7am to run 3 30 amp lines in preparation for the Danley Gear! Have a good weekend and I hope you find what I had to say enjoyable. I’m not the best writer but I know what my ears told me.

Kut,

So there was no difference in sound between the SH69 and SH50, Just the pattern in coverage?

How far away where you listening to the SH50, how wide was the sweet spot from your LP?
post #129 of 705
Great writeup, kutlow! Any Danley can easily stand up to "audiophile" speakers 10 times or more their cost! Those who are still undecided, what are you guys waiting for?!

The 69 sounded alittle brighter to me. Ivan can chime in and explain it better. He was there. With Danley the sweet spot is everywhere! Its not like a standard design speaker which has a narrow path of music coming back to you. Danley sounds comes back wide and wraps around your whole body. We switched back and forth from my speakers and the Danleys and the change was instant.

I just want to clear something up. Many people say is it worth it to spend 3x the money for minimal gains? My answer is NO. This gain was not minimal. Let me put it so you can better understand the difference between the two different technologies. Say you got a 1979 Camaro which has those big round headlights that was used back then. Sitting next to it is a 2011 Benz which has the new HID (XENON) High Intensity headlights. Its pitch dark outside and both cars are facing a building which is sitting 100' away. You can see the building through the Carmaro headlights but its pretty piss poor. The benz lights up the building in bright light and everything in its path. Thats one example. Heres another. You got two speakers. Summerge one in water and fill the cabinet up. Put about 4 inches of mud on the cones of all the drivers. Thats what mine sounded like compared to the Danley. Ive got plenty of better things to be doing with my money if the difference was minor! Im talking my 11 year old into giving me back that 50.00 for his good report card so he can help fund the Danley Gear.

This is what I love about all constant directivity designs. There is no need to discuss sweet spot any more.

Thanks for the detailed review!

One other thing. I hope I dont get into trouble for saying this. The TH 221 with the massive two 21 inch drivers visable will make and fine female drop her panties! So you see I wont have to use a dating site any longer.
post #133 of 705
One other thing before I head out and enjoy the day. The Danley timing on all the components in a single cabinet is precise. I think thats one thing that makes it sound so perfect. On my speakers its like the drivers are not in perfect sinq.

It would be nice if Danley could host a Open House if there was enough people to attend. The cool thing about going there was seeing speakers and especially subwoofers that you will never ever be able to see anywhere. Ive never walked into a Best Buy and seen a TH 221 sitting on the floor! I want to bring up ne more point. I owned 4 JL Audio Fathoms F113'S. The msrp on those are 4,000 each. A Jl Audio Gothom is about 9,000. Id like to see a owner of 2 Gothoms who has 18000.00 tied up and thinking he has something get a chance to witness a TH 221, DBH 218, Th 812. He would never brag again. Have a good day guys.

It is not so much that it is "brighter" (although that is the way it "sounds"), but rather that the low freq does not go as low with the SH69 as it does with the SH50. This is due to less internal volume in the cabinet.

It is just not quite as "full sounding".

And for those asking why we didn't just make the internal volume larger-you have to remember that the Danley products are mainly designed for large rooms-auditoriums etc. So they are designed to be arrayed for greater coverage. If the internal voume was larger-they would not be able to be arrayed as well. How well the product arrays depends greatly on the cut of the side angles-how close the drivers are to the side walls and so forth. All of that reduces the internal volume.

It is assumed that sub would be used in most applications, so the little loss of extension is generally not a problem.

I have a question regarding signal path feeding the Synergy Horns. What all was in the signal path? Any signal shaping or time alignment? Were the designs passive?

Also, and somewhat less important, what type of source material you were using? Any additional subjective details about what you experienced?

I'm curious is this supposed attribute would be your interpretation of a wide-band, fully coherent presentation. I don't know. Regardless, thank you for your contribution....I'm looking forward to hearing some of their Synergy Horns as well.


Thanks

Good question.

I wonder what the Danley crew thought of their competitor speaker that was brought along for the comparo?

We ASKED Kutlow to bring his current loudspeakers.

We HIGHLY encourage people bring whatever loudspeakers they want to compare-home-pro etc.

It is the side by side that really shows off the differences.

In the demo system, there is no eq applied to any loudspeaker and only high and low pass filters on the subs. There is no signal (time) alignment used. In the future we will do a little bit of alignment-but that is quite a project as the delay time would change with each combination of cabinets-so that is a lot of work to do.

So the demo room is a raw system. Yes it could be even better with a little bit of proper delay-eq etc, but we show it in its worse case.

With one exception (the Jericho horn), all of the Danley products are passive or available with a built in amp. Ok a couple are not available self powered as there is not place to put an amp-but most are available either way. They are not bi or tiramped (except in the active mode on most models)

The switching system is one that I built that is Crestron controlled. The signals run through a Biamp DSP-that is used to switch relays for the loudspeakers. This switching system also controls the moving lights that we use at trade shows to point at the loudspeakers. I built probably the worlds only relay analog controlled DMX light board for that.

So the signal from the amp-to the relays-then to the loudspeakers. So each loudspeaker is getting the same input signal-without eq or any other processing.

The source material comes from a bluray player-a media jukebox-CD's or Ipod/computer inputs-whatever is needed. The sources go into a Denon receiver and then out to the DSP/relay switcher system.

We typically use a wide variety of material of all musical forms from easy listening to hard rock to movies and so forth.

We use good quality material, because one of the problems with the Danley loudspeakers is that they reproduce what is coming into them very well.

While this sounds like a good thing-if the source material is not well recorded-those defects show up when listening. They are not "covered up/smeared" as with a lot of other loudspeakers.

This goes for both prerecorded and live material. If the source is bad- you will realize it-but if the source is good-it sounds really good.

Kutlow,

Were you able to audtion the SM60's or the SM96? If so I was wondering how you felt about them vs the larger SH50s. I am quite happy with the SM60s but living in Cleveland I doubt I will be able to visit the Danley HQ any time soon.

I always hear talk about the SH 50s but rarely any talk about the SH 60s. Besides the coverage pattern is there a significant difference in sound between the two?

Probably because the SH50 has been out for years before the SH60. For all practical purposes they are identical in "sound".

It has become "habit" around the shop to compare all products to the SH50.

The SH60 has a wider coverage pattern (in both the horizontal and vertical) and therefore maintains pattern control to a lower freq (since the horn mouth is the same size-and the pattern is wider).

I would not choose one over the other in terms of sound, but rather in terms of the coverage pattern needed for a particular application.

The only real differences between the cabinets is that the SH60 uses a different mid driver than the SH50. It is a slightly driver-but there are 6 of them instead of 4-as int he SH50. The crossover is basically an SH50 with a couple of parts values tweaked to account for the different loading that is going on in the different pattern.

Hi Ivan,

Recall this is the old guy still learning here.

As I continue to learn more about the DSL product line it seems the design criteria of the Synergy Horn is faithful reproduction of the original material.

The different SH models are of specific design according to intended coverage pattern needs; right?

You are correct in that we do the best we can to reproduce what is coming into the cabinet-within the limitations of the design criteria.

I refer to our loudspeakers more as "tools". For different jobs you need different tools. Now this is more geared towards large rooms and systems-not so much home usage.

Think of it this way. You need to loosen up a 1/2" nut on your car. OK the 1/2" is the size (or the pattern of the horn). What is the best tool to do that? It depends on the specific situation. In some cases a wrench may be best-or in others a socket may be best.

Would that be an open end or closed end wrench? Does the socket need to be on an extension? Do you need a swivel socket? Lots of variables.

In some cases any number of tools could be used with the same result-in others the tool needs to be very specific.

That is why we make a number of different loudseakers that have different intended/target applications.

One size does not fit all. Different situtations require different approaches to the result.

Some cabinets do not extend as low as others. This is because they were intended as "fill" cabinets to be used with other cabinets and where the low freq loses pattern control will fill in the missing freq on the fill.

Some need to be louder than others-some need to fit in certain size spaces. Others need to meet a price point.

There are still a lot of "gaps" in the line that we are working on filling. I have 4 different products I am working on right now that will fill some of those gaps.

The main target designs of Danley products is pattern control down to as low a freq as possible, with the best possible phase and amplitude response (sound quality).

Hi Kutlow,

This is the combo I've been running in a 5.1 setup and have never looked back (only 1 DTS-10 as I'm a bit space constrained...still trying to figure out how to get the second one in).

In retrospect, I wish I ran 30 amp service but then again I rarely see more than 80Vrms going into the SH50s during program material and have yet to trip a breaker...

Enjoy your new gear.

No Ive only got one Crest 9200. I have to order the rest. I just sold my Dennon 4308CI and am looking at a Marantz AV7005. It has xlr balanced outs and all the latest movie decoding. DTS, Dolby True Audio. I didnt want to go unbalanced rca to xlr to all 7 channels. This usually creates that dreaded hummm noise.

I just found out Im going to have to replace my screen since the SH 50 are too wide to fit between the screen and the wall. So its getting rather expensive. These speakers impressed me so much that I havent gotten them out of my mind since I left. Thats how good they are. I know where someone can get 3 pristine DTS 10'S if anyone is looking. Im thinking of that TH221

Did you give any thought to the SH 60s?
