Marten Coltrane and Kharma mini opinions
Thanks TeaJay, for the very kind words.Yes we have both speakers here. Neli would be happy to chat with you, Newly, and I think you got the gist of these two speakers, already - but in the meantime I'll try to describe briefly our impressions. Cza... 
Wich high end CD palyer?
Oh, this is too much fun.I knew a guy once, who also thought he would save money and just fly musicians to his room. But problems came up:* The London Symphony Orchestra kept objecting to the brass section having no room to play but in the garage,... 
Lavry use and experience?
Lavry has a good reputation, but we have no experience personally. Here is Romy's take:http://www.goodsoundclub.com/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?postID=1877Enjoy!Mike. 
Where Can I Find Good CES Coverage?
Thanks for the kind words, Bombaywalla.We will do our best with the captions - check our blog to follow the progess reports. We just finally got all the pictures up Thursday afternoon and have a long way to go yet before we get to the final show r... 
Where Can I Find Good CES Coverage?
We have a few hundred pictures (and eventually, *sigh*, a full report) up at:http://www.audiofederation.com/hifiing/2006/CES2006/index.htmEnjoy! 
Denver Audio Show photos
We have several hundred big and juicy photos of RMAF 2005 here:http://www.audiofederation.com/hifiing/2005/RMAF2005/index.htmNot pro shots like Albert's (you should see his rig!) but hopefully enjoyable nonetheless. A show report is forthcoming......

Rooms You Might Want to SeeOur favorite rooms at the end of day 2 seem to have a lot to do with speaker size being appropriate for the room size - small speakers in the very small rooms on floors 9 and 10 seem to work best at this point.From most ... 
Anyone hear the Caravelle speaker and not like it?
I heard the Caravelles at the Rocky Mtn Audio Fest and was quite impressed. They did have the DCS as source, which in my book meant that the people setting up the room actually cared about how the speakers were going to sound - and also that the s... 
Acapella Versus Avantgarde
I will try yo answer some of the questions posed...Prices are listed on the importer's website at http://www.aaudioimports.com/.We are an Acapella dealer, and we get asked this question, to compare Avantgarde and Acapella, all the time, probably b... 
Are you bored to tears with the topics lately?
Cornfedboy: ... "kinda' like learning to make love by reading penthouse."Uh... oh... So maybe that is why.... uh, never mind.Now ya got me thinking about in-home auditions... You guys are gonna get me into *trouble*...!Enjoy (the season)!-Mike 
Pass vs. Edge
Bigkidz's description of the differences is very good, though it was the early, now discontinued PASS amps that were hailed as sounding musical in a tube-ish manner - and that was a long time ago and now these amps are considered to sound somewhat... 
Greatness: Recognition at last
After Srajan of 6moons.com mentioned that these speakers were sounding mighty fine in the Sistrum room at RMAF 2004, I went over and had a listen. One piece they played was a tough classical piece. The separation, stability, accuracy and coherency... 
Has anyone heared of Orpheus Dac's?
Excellent build quality. Hard to beat at their price point. Like Gaudio_eek mentioned, uses the Anagram DAC chip, same as the Audio Aero and Camelot DACs/players.Enjoy!Mike. 
Speakers using ceramic drivers....differences?
Hey Albert,Breaking in the Coltranes is more or less like breaking in all speakers - a hundred hours or so to relax, and 6 months or so to get to the steady-state.They do bass very well: they go very deep and are well-damped in a natural manner. S... 
Speakers using ceramic drivers....differences?
We have the Marten Coltranes here and, as you suspected Albert, they have a very tight, top-to-bottom tonal and resolution consistancy, very similar to the Vandersteen in this respect (in particular the Vandy 5... my old 2ce, well, it did OK... :-...
