I think he posted something last week on the other forum. Don't quote me on that, though.

It has been a little over a week since his last post. I hope he is getting some rest and relaxation...

He went to an AV123 GTG at Craigsub's this past weekend. He may not have recovered yet!

I'm fine. Thank you for asking. I'm here just as often as usual. I'm just not posting as much as I once did (you can all stop cheering now). I wasn't here over the weekend. because I was at Craigsub's house in Erie,PA for a fantastic get-together (GTG).

I'm hesitant to mention this here because I don't want it to seem that I'm hyping the competition. But, I've decided to mention it anyway, because these things are just too much fun, and this GTG, though Mark Schifter was in attendance, actually, was not a normal av123 GTG. Most of the attendees were av123 forum members, but several were Ascend owners, and many, just like many here, own other brands in addition to their av123 offerings.

Craig is big on blind testing. So he organized a blind listening comparison of a number of different speaker brands. Though there were an unbelievable number of different speaker brands there, Craig narrowed it down to 12.

Round 1:

NHT Classic 2's:
Swan D2.1 SE's: (wired out of phase to keep people honest)

Round 2:

Dana 630's:
B&W 805S:

Round 3:

Ascend 340's:
Acculine A1's:

Round 4:

AV123 XL-S:
Ascend Sierras:

Round 5:

SVS SCS-01's:
PSB Image B-25's:

Round 6:

Swan D2.1 SE"s
Ascend Sierras



There's nothing "blind"about that, you say? Oh yes there is. Accoustical grill cloth from Parts Express made it so.






Though no Axiom speakers were present, the absolutely fabulous switch, which provides level-matched, instantaneous switching between up to 4 sets of speakers, was constructed for Craig by Axiom, and it did a wonderful job.

Wow, that sounds fantastic. So where can all of us under-priviledged folk find out the results?

It was a fabulous day, with many really nice people.



And tons and tons of great food.
