Gallant Diva, I am hoping to take my system to the place we mentioned. I was invited to do so a couple months ago, when I had unfortunately just sold my precious digital source. When I get my new finer NOS source, I hope to still make the trip. I am not at all timid to put a Scintilla against that Full Range. I have heard both. You haven't.
All I wanted to say here about my system, is that careful component matching is the trick to bring out the best in class D. Chad agrees with me. It was a quiet conversation not meant to anger outsiders. Nor are we taking our mantra to your site, or Florian's.
It is not our intention to compare Apogees. The Grand is no doubt a magnificent sounding speaker. It's beauty is astounding. I have heard Slant 7 speakers that enthralled me in the small quarters I heard it. MiniGrand speakers have found a way into my heart on some material. I loved the sumptuous original Duetta Sig. I have heard grazzled Duettas too, and they are very different. Certainly room sizes limit various Apogee's usefulness.
Like I wrote earlier, Grands have subs, and I know folks that have to have them. I have no problem with that. I don't like the combination. I see you don't use subs either. Still, when my neighbor strikes up tyco drummers on his SGs and RELs, it shivers me to my bones.
I have not heard your system, and I have no opinion. I know someone who has and they loved it. I bet I would too. Does that mean I have fooled myself into thinking my system has a direct aim on reality? Although I have not heard your FRs, I have heard a lifetime of live music. That is what I am using as a guide.
At no time did we disparage the Grand. We never mentioned other speakers, nor did we compare our two. No one needled Florian into his peacock rattling. I wasn't even thinking of him. It's kind of funny how some folks will read a few posts and come to some conclusion quite foreign to the folks having the discussion in the first place.
The real fight is over class D and conventional amps. Like I said, I am open to competition between the two. It is in the execution that makes the difference. And that is why Chad and I were having a peaceful conversation. You and Carl are fueling a fire that should have been a non-starter.
