Elusive 1099 demo?

Does anyone who owns the elusive 1099's live near Rochester, NY? I would love to listen to them before buying.

It's all good. I'm just in a hurry to hear them because I have an itch to upgrade and I've been waiting years to do so. I've been eyeing these since tuxedo's build and now can finally put money towards the man cave! The wifes list is done! (it's never really done though...)

I can't believe there is a end to your honey do list. The harder i work on mine the more is added. Pretty much do one two are added.

HAHA! there is no such thing as an end to that list. Ive found ways, recently, to work on my projects at the same time. If I need to hang a picture, I might as well hang some speakers too!

I had the pleasure to listen to some DIY speakers at DTSDIG's house for the first time. I have never listened to DIY speakers up to this point. Only my VBSS sub which doesn't count.

One word AMAZING! This guy has some real talent when it comes to woodwork and knowing his stuff about speakers. The finish on his 1099's was amazing and the subs he built were shattering my insides in a good way! The speaker that impressed me the most, though, I was not expecting. He had made some surround volt-10's that were, not only beautiful, but sounded unbelievably good! I was shocked at how well they produced on the low end for surrounds. im almost tempted to just go with 3 volt-10's as my fronts, but the 1099's were far better for front lcr. His veneer finishes on his equiptment was unbelievable as well! He even makes his own veneer with hardwood!

Thanks again DTSDIG for allowing me the opportunity to listen and appreciate what good speakers sound like. Now I have to make a decision. My build thread for new speakers is coming soon. I can only hope to come to within a fraction of his ability in build quiality. Good thing most of my speakers will be hidden by my AT screen!
