New Joseph Audio Pulsar Graphene 2

Just wanted to update my prior thread where this topic may have gotten lost.  As many of you may know by now, Joseph Audio has come out with the new Pulsar Graphene 2. This new iteration of the venerable Pulsars has a graphene coated magnesium midrange-woofer cone, and the drive motor, suspension system, etc., have been revamped. From what I have been told, the upgrade is pretty significant ... the sound is fuller and has greater ease, yet is very resolved. Jeff Joseph advises that an upgrade path will be available for existing owners of the Pulsars, too. Also, note that the price quoted in the Soundstage piece was in Canadian dollars ... Jeff informs me that the price in USD is $8,999 per pair. I am eager to hear the new Pulsars.

Also, kind of interesting that Seas makes a lot of woofers for Magico,
SEAS does not make any drivers for Magico, I know you consider yourself an expert, but one look at SEAS offering will make you realize that their drivers are built on a completely different platform (smaller voice coil, dustcap or bullet plugs vs Magico’s solid cone, etc. I am not even sure they have any Nd motors). SEAS drivers are ancient artifacts in comparison to Magico drivers. Seas now added Graphene on top of their cones (Magico did that 4 yeras ago), so JA can offer it as well. JA never claimed it is his own drivers, BTW...
Keep in mind that to many the sound they are “hearing” is entirely in their heads. No relationship, whatsoever, to the way some components actually sound. Beware of judgments like “push my buttons“ or “foot tapping” or even the holy word “musicality”. If people can only describe their “feeling” when they listen, there is zero value to their input.
BTW, @audiotroy, you criticize everything you do not sell. Everyone here views you as a troll
 I listen to the Persona at AXPONA, so bright and coarse (just like they measure, imagine that). Couldn’t stay in the room for more then 30 sec.

I have a long thread detailing the sound I heard from many speakers, including particularly detailed descriptions of Joseph and Devore (and Magico A3 btw) speakers that I've auditioned.
Like I said, your descriptions are fictional at best. No correlation to how these speakers actually sound, only to how YOU hear them.
If a tree falls in the forest and @prof hears it, is the sound fictional at best?

Not if you can measure it ;)
