Now the good news............after 2.5 years I've finally sold my home and have started a build thread ie. going over the process, planning etc. This new construction will participate in the local "Tour of Homes" and I plan to contact Triad personally to see it they might be interested in sending a Rep. for one day to show off their products.
The plan is to use either Plats or Gold LCR...........I'd love to use Gold Monitors, but the room is too big. Which speaker I plan to use will be based upon room and budget...........
Keeping fingers crossed............hope to close the 2nd week of November and am currently in the process of finalizing construction plans. For now, the room is 26ft X 17ft X 11ft.
Craig john/Tony.............I hope to read your insight.............and I hope not to disturb you too much with a few PM's.
Your room is almost 5,000 cubic feet. That's big, and Gold Monitors or Gold LCRs will be maxxed when you're really
showing off. (Or, you could take people for a nose-bleed ride in your Prius, first, just to build the excitement.
.) The Gold LCR plays maybe a dB and a half louder than the Gold Monitor. If you're going to all the expense and effort to do this, I implore you to do Platinum LCRs. I've heard them in a small room (mine) and big rooms, and they're special. The only reason I moved away from them was my seating position, at around 8', put me a bit too close. But they were still amazing. And there is something about sheer horsepower. To repeat myself ad infinitum, I haven't heard a speaker that both plays this loud and sounds this good. Does the Gold Monitor sound as good? Absolutely, but at what level? You need Platinums. Consider the design cost, construction, prewire, other components, yaddy, yaddy, yaddy, and spending the difference between Golds and Platinums isn't as significant. Then again...it isn't my money, so...
Have I steered anyone wrong yet here??
