You should see if they'll bring them by to see if the experience can be recreated in your home.

I was thinking about that. The room did not look impressive, but maybe it was sonically. I think they would probably let me take them home, as they were pushing for me to take an NAD AVR home. I should do that and report back. Kinda scared I won't let them go...and i really don't want to buy them. It's like asking the crack dealer to come watch the game at your house when you are trying to kick the rock...I guess it is like that, I mean.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Charles, it would be interesting to compare this bookshelf to one of PSBs bookshelfs in the same $$ range, maybe the Synchrony series or to one of Totems bookshelfs as well as the Axioms, just to see where these "mystery" speakers fit in compared with similarly priced bookshelfs. \:\)

Do you remember what the wall behind you was like in the demo room, and how that compares to what you have at home ? I found that it took a *lot* of absorbent material on the back wall of my last room (like a pile of cushions covering most of the wall, or pillows held behind my ears) to get decent imaging.

Well, one big difference was that the monitors were about 4 or 5 feet from the front wall. My set up is much closer. So I moved my towers out to 2 ft, and the image did improve greatly, but mid-bass drops quick. So that was part of it. The wall at the shop had a big curtain over the whole thing, but I expect as a dedicated room, they had it well deadened. My room has Sheetrock only behind the speakers right now, so your comment is well received. I need to add some material back there and see if it helps even more.

Zimm, your description is hilarious.

I've felt exactly the same way on numerous occasions. \:D

Come on, I bought the surrounds. I don't need new fronts (I think? \:o ). I like my fronts and want new stuff I don't have, like a 120" 1080p image!

Glad my pain could serve a good purpose. Last night my wife could see something was up. I was moving speakers and running A-B repeat cycles of "You and Your Friends". Finally, she asked. So I tell her about the speakers. She looks at me like the a "recovered" crack addict with a fresh pipe [or rock or whatever] in hand. So sad.
