    Dutch & Dutch 8c Speakers

    I think most music lovers would be surprised at the quality of your system without having a clue of the effort that went into getting things just right.

    Dutch & Dutch 8c Speakers

    As you describe the process I am curious how it can be applied to different speakers in different rooms? mine are sealed pyramid similar to the watt puppies with 3x8'' woofers on each side. I know from experience with different side firing models this room has smoother and deeper bass with this...

    Not happy with martin logan expression 11a

    The 2000-2005 Tweeter days I was considering the VA beethovens and the sales person had a few returns of the ML's that were around 6' tall went for $7500 or so and she was offering me an open box pair for half price or the same as the beethovens. I wanted to like those speakers so much, I love a...

    Speaker upgrade

    The persona 9h because of the built in active subs and ARC eq I think could be on the list. I know I mention the persona's about everywhere, but I think they need a lot of room to the sides or heavily treated first reflection spots to sound their best. Your room is huge and almost a shame to...

    I recognize that room from the blade 2 AG pic. I was the guy that why you didn't just remove a couple bass traps and keep the 2's instead of bringing in the big blades:) Beautiful room, looks like avantgarde horns would be right at home. The speakers I'm using can touch 120 db but be waay to...

    Dutch & Dutch 8c Speakers

    Congratulations on a great system. Reading your thread was a lot like my own experience once I decided to try dsp active speakers. I must admit tho' I'm a bit less exact in my placement, to be fair tho mine weigh nearly 250 lbs each and don't have near the user configurations yours do.

    As my neighborhood gets older and especially since 2009 a lot of my working class neighbors have moved as many do, further from the city where square feet are a bit cheaper and the town I live in seems popular to those of india decent. While my new neighbors share my love of sportbikes our...

    Do you share your system with other audiophiles?

    No old money here, not much new money either. I enjoy my stereo alone, my buddies think i'm nuts, can't understand how I can afford a system and really don't get the point of sitting in a chair for hours doing...nothing. I decided that at the 1/2 % interest banks are offering I was going to...

    Speaker to better fit my room

    so often swapping speakers just makes everything worse, especially after being used to what 1 pair does so well. good luck.

    Speaker to better fit my room

    12x20? Is it a dedicated room that you can put the speakers along the long wall and treatments behind the listening chair? My dealer sets his listening room up like that with the speakers 1/2 way into the room with the seat against the wall thats well damped and the sound always captivates.

    Do you share your system with other audiophiles?

    I would welcome other audiophiles into my listening room. One I always get turned on to new music and I wan others to hear what I found.

    Large speaker improvements

    I would be surprised if the BE speakers with the titanium/be midrange sounded anything like the other ushers.
