Ha! Thanks bjesien.
I used to be pretty fanatical in my speaker searches - travel by car, train or plane to wherever I had to in order audition speakers.
The O reference series is way beyond my means so hearing them would just be for fun.
Perhaps those who want to hear speakers priced from $3k to $8k
they will want to attend Speakerfest Saturday June 29th 10-4pm
in Scottsdale, AZ. We push the envelope at $17k with the Sanders
electrostatics which many people feel are the last word not only
in electrostatics but all speakers. AZAVCLUB.com.
8600 E. Andersen Dr, Scottsdale, AZ . $10 fee to defray costs.
I went and thought they sounded great with the caveat that its a huge, loft style store and there were like 30 people there so ambient level was high.
They soundstaged better than expected, just wish we could have tested out the massive bass more (one cut hit it and the entire crowd turned around). Tonality was considerably more refined and pure than his existing speakers and the speaker is very dynamic.
