Yes, I still very fondly remember that trip to Dr Uy's home. It was unfortunate that the distributor didn't want me to totally re-setup the system. I could only tweak the speakers. I would have loved to have pushed the wings back and moved the woofer towers further forward. The room was certainly large enough and well treated.
The first pictures were the Genesis II - with the shorter midrange, and only 8 woofers. The second set of pictures are of the Genesis 1.1. Did the younger Mr Uy inherit the G1.1's?
It would be easy to conclude the the son inherit the system but last time I talked to him, he said he's still listening to his old system anchored on the B&W 800 Matrix/Krell. His father's system is still intact in the same old room.
5.6m wide. No banana, so I suggested to him that he buy the G2.2 instead. No, he wanted the top of the range. It was the last speaker he will buy for the rest of his life (he's barely 60).
Anyway, he next sent me drawings of the whole house, and I suggested that he extend the size of the room by 2m taking away part of the balcony. His wife refused. We went back and forth for a while, and he finally asked me what it would cost him for me to custom design a pair of speakers to fit the room. I named a number. The next morning, it appeared in my bank account. He's so happy with them that he said that I could now sell this to other customers as he thinks that they are more reasonable sized and would work in a reasonably sized room.
Were you there when we played Earth Drums from Paramita? I thought that the doors would burst out from the room.
That system was pretty good. I remembered that it had awesome imaging - when we played that imaging track from one of the old test CD's you could swear that you can measure the distances with a laser!It would be easy to conclude the the son inherit the system but last time I talked to him, he said he's still listening to his old system anchored on the B&W 800 Matrix/Krell.
