    Well...I agree that listening tests shouldn't be performed with speakers placed next to each other but would question if this fact should be considered obvious.

    While there are certainly some fine reviewers out there with all their marbles in tact I've seen a few that could be considered...umm yes, stupid is a good description

    First review that I know of published on Soundstageultra. Looks like a real winner.

    I ordered a pair of G1's last summer to pair with new CAT amps and a CAT Legend preamp and they were about to be delivered last December when I heard about the Spirits. George with Kyomi Audio was great and let me upgrade and pay the difference for the Spirits but I've had to wait another 6 months to get them. Although this has been a test in patience, I'm starting to get pretty excited!

    The Spirits should arrive soon and I'll report back on how they sound. They are going in a dedicated built from scratch room with ASC double wall construction/resilient channel, isolated power direct to the pole, JPS wiring, Furutech outlets, acoustic carpet, and a bunch of tube traps and GIK panels. I'll be hanging acoustic panels on the ceilings this week. Jim Smith fortunately lives nearby and is helping with the final set up.

    Thanks to everyone who posted about room construction; Ron, Steve, and others. Your advise and experiences have been incredibly helpful!

    Ted .. you wont be sorry .. the spirits are a speaker that is way beyond anything you have heard and are a substantial improvement on the G1's. I am busy with a G1 vs G1 spirit review..I am finding it difficult to put into words exactly what the Spirits do .. but they do something magical..worthy of a fully dedicated and treated room.
