Awesome!!! Congrats! That’s my dream speaker. I have the cloth version Quatros and love them, but really covet that carbon tweeter. Like you, I had the hi-pass built into my preamp. (AtmaSphere MP-3)
@bigboltz Thanks, I bet that MP-3 is an awesome pre. I've not heard it but I hear nothing but rave reviews of the AtmaSphere products.
@2psyop Thanks to you too. Ever since I heard the quatro's I've wanted them. Recent changes in my circumstances made them "possible"; they're a stretch, but at the tender age of nearly 57 I decided why wait. To say I'm excited for their arrival is an understatement.
freaking fantastic! I have heard Coda into ARC into Quattro CT at Randys in Santa Monica. Johnny will get your powered bass dialed in and man are you in for a treat w 11 bands of analog EQ.....ya man, excited aint the word...magnetic levitation comes to mind.
As I am sure you know Pete aka @ctsooner is running the Ayre integrated modified by factory for high pass and Quattros also !!!!
@tomic601 I know that Pete has quatro's. He is actually the guy that brought John to my attention. A few years back I had a system with bad synergy and commented about it here. He told me to seek out John and said he'd give great advice and help me get the most out of my budget and not just try to "sell me stuff". He was spot on.
I didn't know that Pete had an Ayre integrated.
@johnto Thanks, the excitement is definitely real. I am thrilled now, and I'm sure I'll be anxious soon...waiting to put the new system together. Then I'll be excited again when the day comes that Johnny is setting them up.
I guess that depends on how cute you are and whether your name is John or Sally. ;-)
Seriously though, I take it you mean you want to hear the Quatrod not the Sig 2 CE’s.
Funny as it is, I decided to also upgrade from the Ax-7e to the EX8 so that I can add better streaming capabilities as well as better digital connection to my Apollo CDP and Verizon FiOS.
Of course, I had to almost had to talk Johnny R into my spending the additional money. I’ve never ever seen a salesman who’s tried harder to give the customer the best bang for his buck, and not try to push their budget.
