As for my suggestion....sit back and enjoy....take your time...listen to a lot of music....make a day out of it. If anything, just level match. Make Brandon (merrymaid) feed you and provide good drinks.
Personally(selfishly?), I have heard the Ascend tower(and Dave has told me that he has made more tweaks since the last prototype I heard) next to a standard SongTower, not blind, but I was hoping for validation of my experience.
That sounds good to me man. Like I said, though, I am down with whatever Brandon wants to do.
Ah yes, but was it the new SongTower, or the old? They changed the woofers which gives a fuller, more realistic lower midrange. If you've got a ribbon version the crossover point is different, so you'll also get that fuller, more realistic presence.
So Dave's main goal was to trump the SongTower?
I am not saying that's a bad thing, but it does speak to the quality of Salk speakers. I admit, if I was a speaker engineer I probably would have used my ST RT's as a reference too.
I think one thing is definitive: my opinion and your opinion should probably just be thrown out the window. LOL! Naw, I am just kidding. I think we could both be objective in such a comparison...maybe...well...
