Now I'm confused, Sonus Fiber Grand Piano's?
I had the chance to listen to a pair at Tweeter today & was completely shocked. They were excellent! I was there to demo some Martin Logan's for a friend & rather reluctantly listened to the Grand Piano's based on the salesmen's recommendation. We were using the new Steve Winwood disc & some live Grateful Dead as references since we both know the music so well on our own personal systems. They were excellent. The ML's never got my toe tapping (I guess I'm not a planar fan) but the Piano's sounded really great. Excellent bass & killer image no matter where we put them. The room was a wreck speaker placement wise when we got there. For a set of speakers that are not made to rock they did a damn fine job in that room. At home I have a pair of Tyler reference monitors, external crossovers & Tyler sub that has been the best thing I've had in my living room yet but now I'm thinking of selling them for the Piano's. The Piano's are simpler & would be less dominant in my room b/c I could ditch the stands, external crossovers, sub & garden snake bi-wire cables. My wife would love me & I think they would actually sound better than my current set-up. I wondered if they sounded so good playing through the usual stuff at Tweeter that they would have to sound better with my current rig which is a DNA-1, Parasound CBD2000 transport into a Benchmark DAC using DH Labs cables. Am I going nuts or what? I think this new stripped down approach to my home stereo has gone too far now.
