if these folks have willingly spent their money, and are *still* happy after their purchases, they may be many things, but *sucker* ain't one-o-them. check your dictionary, phill. ewe may not agree w/their taste or their judgments about value for money re: speakers, but that does *not* mean they're suckers.
Why would anyone buy a speaker named after a zipper? Before I bought speakers, I auditioned the Khite. First of all, I think this term is highly offensive to the Jewish people. Second of all, I didn't like the way it sounded. I'm sorry but a tiny woofer only makes drum solos sound real if the musician was playing a toy drum. I purchased the Silverline Sonatas, because (i) I like the way they sound, once broken in, and (ii) I got a really good deal on some brand new units given the impending new model (due to a lawsuit from Avalon, Silverline had to redesign the Sonatina and Sonata). These are truly exceptional speakers, not like those zipper speakers, philosophically akin to what I like to hear, including near perfect time and phase coherence due to the use (partial) of first order crossovers and a sloped baffle, virtual full range (I suspect the 20-20,000 Hz spec is a little bit optimistic, but I can tell you get good sub 30Hz in the right room, effortless midrange, a "balanced" sound (no extreme defects or compromises) and, yes, very high efficiency (unbelievable combination, lets see how satisfied I will be long-term!) Does it make sense to spend all that money on Talon speakers? Sure it does! If you're a jackass!
Why so bitter Tubgroover? Why have you decided to go off topic and engage in personal attacks? I understand that you are not happy with your speakers but why blame me. You were the one who decided that images the size of peashooters sounded "real" to you. That's not my fault I just call them like I see them and I see that your speakers are not very good. If that threatens you go get some help.
I do not appreciate your attempts to defame me and will take the appropriate steps with the proper authorities to make sure this does not happen. There is no doubt that you have some sort of personal issues here which may have legal issues to them. If I do not get an apology from you within the next 24 hours, I will step up these measures. You decide if it is worth it to you.
hey joe - 1st ewe say:"...Does it make sense to spend all that money on Talon speakers? Sure it does! If you're a jackass!" then, very next post, ewe say:"..Why so bitter Tubgroover? Why have you decided to go off topic and engage in personal attacks?..." calling someone a jackass cuz they wanna spend their money on something *ewe* don't like, is a personal attack, imho... does nothing to enlighten *anyone* about the sound of audio products.
