Is there anyone out there who knows anything about Essence Speakers by Dale Pitcher?
I have the manual and wave launch charts for the Topaz 6. Several years ago, I sent the midrange, tweeter assemblies with cradles, and crossovers to Dale for upgrade. They never got finished and I don’t believe they ever will. All I have left is t...

Pulsars and the Mythical Armchair Speaker Maker
So the question for Kenjit remains, why are you not designing, building, marketing, and selling your own speakers that equal or out perform the Pulsars for far less money? It is a piece of cake, right? Have you ever heard the Pulsars?

Every single speaker made produces the sound waves from recorded music differently. What exactly is the judge of what is right or wrong when it comes to reproducing these sound waves? There will never be consensus on this, and there is no perfect ...

Paradigm Persona series
Cmsgolf, really don’t know why you have this evangelical hatred of the Persoanas.Audiotroy, when did I ever say that I hate the Personas? Please find it for me. I think they are a very good speaker, that is unfortunately too tipped up in the top... 
Paradigm Persona series
@ahofer I hope you end up buying something you love and can live with for the long term. I would be wary buying something that you find a fundamental flaw with, no matter how much someone may want to sell them to you. No amount of cabling, footers... 
Paradigm Persona series
I listened to them toed in a bit, and if you look around you'll read a bunch of reviewers/users are setting them up facing straight ahead to avoid an overly bright presentation. Apart from the brightness, I think the Paradigms are *very* stiff ... 
Paradigm Persona series
