why don't more people build high end speakers versus buying high end speakers? - Page 3

About the Trinnov I am investigating....

What I have found that maybe I should not be reinventing the wheel with custom Kharma centre products, when wilson has everything I need already designed.

I am buying Peter McGrath lunch tomorrow to discuss this....



Dave Wilson's highly acclaimed new tweeter ( for which he investigated Diamonds and other exotics) can be ordered on all the speakers.

A tweeter or driver does not a great speaker make.

The Esotars, The Diamonds and the Convergent Synergy tweeter do make speakers sound great.

So it is a good starting point....

Wow! By my estimatation, that is over 4,200 pounds of "speaker" on the front wall, if you ever build a theater with this set-up, that must set some type of record!

Hello, yes these suckers are heavy.

The final array will likely look like this though.



As per ...

Well I was invited by Mr. Peter McGrath to listen to some of his fabulous recordings (on DSD and PCM) at his residence.

I had a chance to understand Wilsons approach to aligning the sound in time domain through: ASPHERICAL PROPAGATION DELAY .http://www.absolutesounds.com/pdf/main/press/HFNAlexandria_XLF10124web.pdf





As opposed to d'appolito.







Pleasantly surprised to see the MOMENTUM amps present. Amps these good take a lifetime of wisdom to be able to deliver. So warm so airy so detailed, strings so eerily accurate and none of the Krell zippyness...

As you know I am requisitioning 19 stripped down BLACK BOX rack mounted versions of these amps for system EUROPA.

So I met with Wilson in the afternoon, but you would not guess what happened that made it mandatory to go to Miami yesterday.

Where David Saltz explained that the benefits of having flat cables are in preserving signal fidelity in the longer cable runs. Something to do with magnetic fields...



Well the visit was prompted by an emergency at ALBIORIX.

This penthouse installation 9,215 kilometers away...









2 platinum starlight 20 meter hdmi cables NICKED!!!!!

That is right lower right corner, 2 of them....


At list price a $21,000 emergency!!!

Don't know, haven't tried it

Cool! One might think the looks were their main strength, but doing that and hide them away proves a point.
