Yes, but you weren't allowed to play audio, so you could only show what it would look like.


Wait, participants weren't allowed to play anything on their equipment regardless of volume??? Yet, they were expected to spend the time to set everything up!?


Oh well, from what i have seen so far, there has been quite a bit of interest in the new speakers..

Yup, lots of interest... in how they sound... perhaps a little more description than "you won't be dissapointed"...

I forgot I wanted to respond to this point. When I asked Ian about the difference in standard stamped versus die cast, one thing he said was:

Since you specifically mentioned subwoofer drivers, it seemed relevant.

I really wish S-P-E-A-K-E-R had been the final name of the product.

So.... Andrew, you didn't tell US the whole story..! (i don't remember reading "over a pint" anywhere......)

"design of the alcohol-induced speaker."

Now, when people ask
"Why do you speakers have "speakers" on the back?"

I HAVE to be honest......
"The designer was drunk..."

To which i am not even going to attempt at guessing what will follow from that....

On a side note, The case for the active DSP will have the same metal working as the Axiom amp's ya? You said the case at the show was not the final design, this is the prototype box ya?... (speaking of the screws holding the top plate down) are you going to have the same metal brake machine form the top/side piece as i assume is use for the amps?

Hi guys;

I posted a terrible cell phone pic on FB to give you a sense of the size difference between the M80 and LFR1100:



And @whippersnapper, good suggestion. I've linked the Omnidirectional speaker from the homepage.

Check that time stamp again. Amie is up at 0400! (Everyday, according to a trusted source)

What does the "0" stand for? Oh, my God, it's early...
