To those of you who have newly arrived EP800s, have one or more in the mail on the way, or sitting in your house in a box waiting to be plugged in, let's consolidate the thoughts and pictures into this thread.

My initial thoughts and pictures to come soon...

Ok, while I'm still not adequately prepared to write any sort of review, below are a few pictures to sate your appetites (read: get you off my back) \:\) until I have more time to do some more dedicated listening.

Unfortunately most of the pictures I took have as much of me in them as the EP800, so you get some cheesy pictures of me along with the new sub.

Me with the EP-800 (note the taped over "600" labels) ;\)

Unboxing the EP-800

Out of the box - high gloss casting reflections on the wall

Close up of the finish (note that's a reflection of my arm on top - the finish is SMOOTH)

New double-sub look

For now the EP-600 is unplugged as I've been trying to isolate the difference in what I'm hearing from using the 800 as opposed to mixing it with the 600 at the same time. I'm still using my small Earthquake sub in the back of the room at the same time to flatten the overall room response. Since I know it doesn't reach anywhere near the depths the 800 is hitting, I'm not too worried about it coloring my opinion of that sub. ;\)

Looking forward to hearing the rest of the opinions and seeing other pictures. I'll be back with graphs and more detailed thoughts as soon as I have them.

I don't know what I am more jealous about, the really cool sub, or the fact you can be comfortable in shorts in early February.

Looking forward to your thoughts on the EP 800.

Now, everybody get off Jason's back so he can write a proper review ;\)

Very nice. I eagerly await your impressions. Wish I was there!

That's all real nice looking, but what are you planning to do for real bass? I say get rid of the chairs and add a few more subs. That should do it.

Movie night at myrison house tonight!

I can't even imagine the performance you will get from those 800's in your room. Very nice setup you have there. \:\)

I believe myrison only has 1 ep 800. CV and SRoode are the two people that order 2 of 'em.

In that last pic, it looks almost as if you wet yourself with excitement.

I'm sure Mark can photoshop a puddle in there for us.
