Yes I should have called but I didn't see a phone number,only a fax number. I'll go back and look around again and if I find one I'll be back here to give an apology.
Forgive me, but you are sadly mistaken. You are correct, John is easy to deal with. However, there is a world of difference in our technology and Ohm Acoustics.
Further, our speakers are much more efficient than those of old and can be voiced with a few watts. But I would never use less than 100 watts on ANY system under 90 db efficient so as to be sure that there is always enough head room for demanding musical passages or even single notes.
Nothing sounds worse than an underpowered speaker and nothing will damage a speaker faster.
Thank you for the kindness.
Utley you could not be more incorrect regarding Ohm and HHR speakers. I currently own Ohm Walsh 3's and I'm very familiar with Ohms's current as well as past offerings. What Dale at HHR has done is take a 40 year old design based on the Ohm F and A models and take them to a level of sophistication that the original speakers could only dream of. This is not to denigrate the original speakers, they had a magic which few speakers could ever attain but ultimately were just too problematic in their design that they deteriorated to the point where few people were even able (let alone willing) to repair them.
As I mentioned I enjoy my Ohm's very much and at this time cannot jump into the waters where the HHR's play but they're definitely are at the top of my speaker bucket list.
I should also mention that Ohm currently makes very highly regarded and very well reviewed offerings at their respective price points.
