So what's up for 2024? My current system is pretty much done, just a diffuser install when they arrive in January and final speaker placement. After that is complete, my analog rig will be installed. I am very impressed with this new room thus far - has alleviated many concerns moving. Also, the Nagra/WestminsterLab combo has proven to be elite.

As far as speakers I'm interested to hear in 2024?

Diesis Roma
Acora Acoustics SRC-2
Kef Blade 1 Meta
YG Sonja 3.2 (the new version, curious how the new engineering team has upgraded the sound)
Diesis Roma is a great sounding speaker.

I am thinking for 2024 a new speaker project with horn loaded line source for mid and high frequencies.

Congrats Keith! The chair looks great and the room is really coming along. Two questions:

1) Who makes your rack?
2) Any plans for the area between the speakers e.g. art, diffusion/absorption etc.
It’s a Box Furniture rack

Vicoustic 2D diffusers will go between the speakers and complete the look, hopefully with some soundstage and depth benefit as well.

Short update that there is no update :( It's ~3 months and counting on getting wood diffusers. One landed a week ago, without the other 3. I think the positioning can be dialed in more now too.

I will be going to the Dallas audio show on Saturday in March and will give a report on speakers as usual! I also have a room at Axpona.

I would appreciate reading your reactions to the YG Hailey Reference 3 speakers if you can fit that in to your visits

Keith, when you‘re in Dallas you can hear Diesis @ the Rhapsody Dallas location. Or come anytime to visit in Portland I’ll gladly setup Diesis Roma for you to hear and enjoy.
