Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II VS Ascend Sierra-1 - Page 2

post #31 of 38
Exactly what alleged "lie" do you have in mind?

You don't know of one, and neither does he. He certainly has not mentioned one.

I expressed an OPINION, and the truth of it is certainly up for debate.

This is what happens when your totally dismissive of everyones recommendations or what the OP wants. Big bold letters say Polk M60s vs Sierras, what do you do push your own selective brands while making disparaging remarks towards others, mostly true ID brands.

I just love it when you chime in no matter what the OP would want and push your "NHT is the best sub under $1k" its always the exact same copy and paste response word for word. Its as if you typed it up on notepad to keep it and spam the forum with it in every "what to buy thread".

Since you say that the NHT is THE BEST that means you don't like SVS? or HSU Research? or Emotiva? or Rythmik? or Outlaw? or Epik? Aperion? Have you truly listened to any of them or they not elitist enough for you?

Really, are you that sure? I do believe you have us confused with another company. We have only been in Orange County for slightly over 3 years now. Even more specifically, we have only been in this particular facility for 2.5 years and our listening room was first opened in July 2010, which coincided with the first public showing of our Sierra Towers.

A “long time ago” (2+ yrs ago) we were not open to the public.

Prior to April, 2009, we were in LA County; Gardena to be more specific. We were in that location for ~10 years – no public listening room, no demos offered.

Look, I have no doubts that you have listened to our Sierra-1. There are many thousands of pairs out there, they are a very popular loudspeaker and for good reason. You lied about visiting us and do you not remember publicly posting on AVS that our published specifications on the Sierra-1 were fraudulent?

My “association” with the company? You just provided even more proof that you have never visited us. You obviously don’t know me which means we have never met, which means you have never been here.

In addition, had you actually been at our facility, there would certainly have been no confusion as to where we actually assemble our goods as our listening room has a glass side wall with a full view of our active production line.

Commsysman, you are certainly entitled to your opinion and I have never stated otherwise…. However, when someone publicly posts false information I will call them on it every time and that, Sir, is what brought me to this thread.

… And I suggest you be equally “careful” about publicly posting false information, especially when it appears to be agenda driven. I suggest you let it go…

The first four sentences in Post #2 are A DIRECT RESPONSE to Post #1.

Try reading it again.

If I want to add other opinions or information, that is really none of your business, is it?

I suggest that you express your opinions on audio matters, and stop the character assassinations and misquotes.

Until someone appoints you Chief of the Internet Police, I could care less whether you like my opinions or not.

gtpsuper24: I am really disappointed with your post. You seriously missed few brands commsysman pushes regardless of thread owner's requirements.

Joe: Hi commsysman, what is your recommendation for a decent sedan from ford, gm, Honda and Toyota?
Commsysman: there is nothing better than PSB Imagine T in that price range.
Joe: You know what, enough of these basic cars, I want something fancy, between BMW, Mercedes and Audi, what would you pick?
Commsysman: Well, that's a tough one but if I were you, I would go with Vandersteen.

I find your post to be more compelling than the contradictory post above yours. At least you listened to them in the same room, and presumably on the same day, perhaps even the same hour, You might even used the same recording.

The idea that someone with golden ears can roam the country, listening to different speakers in different rooms on different days with different music, and make authoritative statements is something that breaks so many rules about how human hearing and memory for sounds works, that IME it has little or no relevance to the real world. It's ego-tripping in my eyes.

That all said, I'm still not happy until I read the last sentence in your post. The sound of a speaker is highly dependent on the room that it is in. But there it is - another morsel of truth in your post : " It's best to audition both in your own home."

Well done!

I find it funny that he could not remember where the Ascend office was, what city he was in, or what county he was in. He wasn't even sure of the year, just "long ago". But he can remember exact details of the Sierras and goes about not recommending. rolleyes.gif

Hi Arny-

Yes same room, same source, and just a few minutes apart. I played familiar source material with one speaker brand, swapped speakers, re-ran Audyssey, and played the source again. Obviously my findings were strictly subjective, but I felt I could hear subtle intricacies and detail with the one brand (Ascend) and not the other (Monitor Audio).
