Your offer is very generous, but It's a rare weekend that I could invest most of a day to go listen to an audio system. Life is just too busy and weekends are reserved for my girlfriend and grandkids. We have a music club that meets in Olympia, usually the 3rd Wednesday evening of each month. You can find us on Facebook, look for Olympia Music Club or send me a private message and I can send more details.
One of plasma tweeter stopped working today.
It has been 5 years and 5000 hours on it.
Thus it is about time to replace it.
I had contact with Lansche Audio for replacement.
But I did not expect it to die before Feb 9th.
Without one tweeter working, the imaging and balance is not normal.
I have to cancel the invitation on Feb 9th.
Thanks a lot to those who expressed intention to come over to my house.
I will arrange the new date after I get new replacement tweeter.
I received new plasma tweeters yesterday.
They sound better than old one.
Shall I make a date of invitation like March 16th?

"Kingrex" who listened to " I am so lonesome tonight" by Elvis in my listening room on Saturday, March 16th, mentioned as follows.
It was the best voice of "Elvis" that he had ever heard with nuanced details and spooky presence.
My system combining LM 508 SET amplifier and plasma tweeter of Lansche 4.1 is the best for any vocal music.
Only one person attended invitation to my system on March 16th.
He left his opinion in other forum.
I made some time to meet Thomas and listen to his setup. There was suppose to be 4 of us. One called ahead sick, another the following day for some reason and one just fell off the earth. If you accept an invitation you are taking a spot others may want. If your not interested, don’t accept. Thomas was rightfully upset. Anyhow, the system.
I have listened to some nice systems in the last 4 ot 5 years. Only 1 made tears come to my eyes. That was a gigantic horn system playing Dylan. Thomas’s was the second. What really surprised me was it was to a Elvis song. It was a slow ballad. "I am so lonesome tonight". I’m not an Elvis fan, but the Lanche speakers and Line Magnetic amp produced such a strikingly real, Elvis is in the house play, it took me by surprise. There is something about how clean and dynamically quick the Lanche play. Voices are spooky real. If you closed your eyes, it would be hard to tell Charlie’s setup from a live singer through a PA.
Thomas played some other small scale music. Mostly vocal with limited Instruments. I then asked him to play The Nutcracker. Call me weird. I have about 6 versions of that album. Never have I heard such a breath of life like the Lanche /Line M put out. You can hear the hall like your in it. Out of all the great systems I have heard, this was at the top of the close your eyes and your in the symphony sound . It was so, so real. I’m pretty impressed with what the Corona Plasma tweeter can do.
Everything was CD playback and the system was room processed and equalized to hand off below 50 hertz to a basic PSB sub. I’m excited about this as I’m about to biamp my speakers which means I will be using an active crossover. I liked what I heard so I hope what I make at home works somewhat as well.
In all, high praise to Charlie for a well tuned, top class system to enjoy.
