Thanks for your review. I have the TAD-803's with the single-driver mod. I have not heard the stock TAD-803, but can say that the one with the single-driver mod is very special. It is extremely musical and articulate; as you said, a little rolled off at the top and bottom, but what a relaxing and magical presentation they provide! Getting the crossover out of the picture helps a lot, in my opinion.
I will add, that within their minor frequency limitations (midbass thru lower treble) they will shame a lot of highly-touted, much more expensive models. Cheers!
Azstereo, I'm not sure what you're implying with your statement, but it seems to be something negative from the many .........'s
Since you're in AZ, I invite you to pop by and check my pair out sometime and see if you're not impressed...........
With a name like Azstereo, I assume that you're a dealer..........
Wow Azstereo! You seem to be a "one man marketing department" for e-Ticket Cables as about half of all of you post are touting that brand. And a guy comes along suggesting he is thrilled with a $129 speaker purchase and you call him a shill......
What's that all about? Do you think you can corner the market on free advertising?
I am in no way affiliated with Paul or Bizzy Bee Audio - this review is also on his old design - currently being sold off. I still have not heard the new design. I may be fairly new (although I have sold a center speaker here - Klipsch RC35 - a few months ago) - but I have lurked on the site for a few years.
All I'm doing is spreading the word about a great deal - something that simply should not sound as good as it does, expecially for the money. The cabs are fairly light weight, the tweeter looks inexpensive, yet, all in all, it's a great sounding speaker - and a down right steal at $129.00. It does have limits, but what the 2way 803 does, it does with an amazing, quality sound. Take it for what it is - just a recommendation. If any of you do decide to try them - give them 30-40 hours of burn in time - then listen seriously.
Until I heard them myself, I too was skeptical anything this cheap could even remotely sound musical. When did you audition them or the current more expensive model from Bizzy Bee Audio?
Keep this in perspective - these are being sold WELL BELOW cost - these are NOT the best speaker I've ever heard, but they ARE very good within their limits.
I too find most "Audio" gear to be overpriced and over hyped. That is why, when I find a true bargain, I share the information. If you don't like it, just ignore it.
Azstereo - Making that statement without a link is easy. Supply the link. Have you actually heard them? I am currently listening to a pair of B&W 805s and comparing the TAD803s - just out of curiosity. The B&Ws are clearly a better speaker - as they should be for 20 times the price. But, the 803's still do have some qualities that would surprise anyone. Please do supply the china link - I am quite interested in buying large quantities.
