Last Saturday our Arizona audio video Club had our monthly meeting at US tube audio in Scottsdale . They had six stereo systems set up for listening! The blade twos sounded phenomenal ! They were Biamped with a two piece Ayon Audio stereo amplifier, using a Class D 250 watt for the bottom and a 125 watt tube for the mid & top end! A $10 power strip and inexpensive Mogami interconnects! Some of the best sound I've ever heard! And the Blade Twos were only a foot out from the walls. To think how much even better they can sound tweaked properly in a dedicated room like mine! Holy moly!
I am bp on AVS. We have exchanged posts over occasionally over the past 9 years on the AVS Theta forum. Knowing you as I do this is indeed high praise based on your standards. I am so pleased to hear my sense of the Blade Two confirmed independently since not that many people have them yet. Bigmoviefan on AVS has them too, a bit earlier than me. Of course, Craig's associate, George, had them before anybody. I understand many are waiting months to get them, especially in some of the optional colors.
I didn't expect to find you in this thread and am happy you are here!
I have acoustic treatments already on the front and rear walls, ceiling corners and 1st reflection points. Bass traps too. I hope that is adequate. I have asked Amir if more is needed and look forward to his response.
I am about to receive my center stand (I also bought the Reference C4 center and Reference 1's as surrounds) before running Dirac. Knowing the difference Dirac made on my Aerial 9's I can't wait to try it with the Blade Two's!
