We have attended symphonies in the following places: Vienna & Solzberg Austria, LA CA USA, London England, NYC NY USA, Krakow Poland, and Budapest Hungary. Besides selling audio professional for about a decade, these are my qualifications for recommending hifi gear. I find that most audiophiles really dont know what music should sound like since they have never (or rarely) been to a live symphony, which usually costs less than one non audiophile CD. Attend a symphony, go to a jazz club or bar! Please! Most rely on magazine reviews (& most magazines rely on advertisers to stay in business). Many also rely on their friends advice, which in many cases, their friends know less than they do. If you really know what music sounds like, what an instrument sounds like, then you will find Dunlavy to reproduce these sounds better than any other speaker in the world. Do you know how speakers are demod at the Dunlavy factory? Well, they do something that, as far as I know, no other mfr does: they make a live recording of a baby grand piano (with you in the room), then they play it back for you a few minutes later on a very modest system (about $10K retail + spkrs). I dont want to re discover my CDd or LPs. I simply want to hear whats on them, the way they were recorded (and yes, you arent going to enjoy Dunlavy with poor recordings). Use your memory of live music to make your hifi purchase decisions, we do!
