I have been in Andrew's theater and I can unequivocally state that it was the most intense Home Theater experience I have ever personally had! I still get goose bumps thinking about that Metallica concert at +15!
Those Yorkville speakers are absolutely unbelievable. I have never experienced a speaker that can play that loud... and still maintain its' composure. And those DIY subs are totally, unbelievably phenomenal. The bass just absolutely POUNDED without ever exhibiting any signs of distress or distortion. I've never heard bass that loud with that low level of distortion. And the acoustic treatments Andrew has done simply *work* to tame the whole room and allow the performance of the system to shine through. The accolades he's receiving here are absolutely well-deserved and well-earned. Congratulations Andrew.. well done indeed!
While I was there, I also got a tour of Andrew's shop.
If you are the owner of a "Man Card," you can't help but be impressed with what Andrew has put together in his workshop. Tim The Toolman, (remember him?), would be green with envy! The sawdust removal system alone is a work of art. The vacuum hold-down system for the CNC machine is another mind-boggling machine. The whole thing just makes me want to build something....
To top it off, the workshop has been acoustically treated!!!
Andrew, the HT of the Month Award could not have been given to anyone more deserving than you. Your HT is certainly not the most expensive or elaborate on the forum. Yet, I doubt that there are more than a handful of AVS HT's that can rival the "goose-bump-inducing" capability of your HT. If there were an award for "Goosebumps/$$$" you would win, hands down!
