Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
Sciencecop: do you happen to believe in speaker cable, power cable, etc upgrades?  Just curious.   
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
I’m sure he hasn’t even been in the same room as a pair, or maybe popped into a room at a show and didn’t even sit in front of them.   
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
I’d take the 9H any day for so many reasons.  It’s not just about having good bass in any room.  It’s about having the best possible bass in every room.  The Magico can’t possibly have as good of bass when it’s all said and done.  I’d say go liste... 
Focal Utopia Scala V2 or Persona (9H/7F)
Yes.  It’s a much more capable speaker. 
Focal Utopia Scala V2 or Persona (9H/7F)
I can think of almost no scenario where I’d recommend a Scala evo over a pair of 9H.  And I love focal.  The value of the Scala is just not there in comparison.  
Are Martin Logan’s what they used to be?
Better than they have ever been.  Anyone disagreeing is looking at the old models with nostalgia goggles. 
JBL 100 Classic or Klipsch Heresy III?
I’d never want either, but you are doing yourself a disservice to not listen to the Forte III instead of either.   
Raidho TD1.2 opinions?
I thought they were stunning at Axpona.   If I’d have a hard time buying them over a pair of Persona 5F or 7F at that price range though.Diminishing returns are very steep at that point, but they were for sure about as good as it gets for a booksh... 
Carver Amazing Line Source Speakers
Did anyone hear these at Axpona?  I wanted to but never got up there and skipped Sunday due to the snow.Ozzy what happened with your ALS? 
Focal Kanta 2
“FYI, Focal takes 53%, the distributor 47%, so lots of wiggle room!“Absolute travesty of misinformation.  Focal has some of the lowest dealer margin of all speaker brands.  There is the least amount of wiggle room in them.  Stop spreading bad info... 
Audio Doctor goes to Axpona observations so far
I also thought the PS audio speakers were hilariously underwhelming.

If it takes more than a few hours to get a pair of 9H “dialed in” maybe consider another hobby.  Good lord.  To get them in the ideal placement in any room it shouldn’t take more than a week to two of fiddling. 
Kef Ref 3 or Focal Kanta 2
Both are great, but I’d go Kanta personally.  Although, I’d get the Kanta no3 for barely more money.  It’s a dramatically better speaker than the no2 for a nonsensical up charge. 
Digital Room Correction For Speakers
If you have bass nulls in your listening position, no amount of room correction can make it any better.  All room correction can do is tame any excess bass response from the room.If you have more than a 6~ dB null at any given frequency, and you t...
