LMAO...You crack me up Johnny.  Great stuff.  Can't wait to hear your thoughts. I've heard one other's and he LOVES them.  I bet the Mimas would work with them nicely too.

I"m sure he can.  Not sure if he has sold the older ones

Wow. This is the new travel thread lol. Wife is from WI and two of three kids and family still there. Good VAndy dealer or two in state if I recall. Has anyone been able to audition the new speaker yet?

Amplifier for my new Focal Sopra no2
Guys, the power supplies will often make the largest difference.  I have the best server/DAC in the world (my thoughts as well as a well respected reviewer at TAS, The Memory Player by Laufer Technik).  They are going to break the whole power supp...

I bet Bob.  That will be a crushing system you have!  When we can get Jim to come east......:).

That's what I was going to say.  I've heard the Treo's with the subs and it's about 90% of the Quatro's.  They were the older subs adn not the new ones though.

Vandersteen Quatro CT
The M5 is a sick amp.  Sounds as good or better than any of the under 40k amps I've heard with Quatro's.  The HRS platforms can't be beat.  I'm going to be putting in a order for the entry one for my Server/DAC.As for putting anything under any St...

Spoke to a buddy of mine who owns one of the Naim pre and amps.  He has Vandersteen's like Tomic does and loves the combo in a big way.  He has owned Focal's in the past and I know he's always been a Naim guy, so I assume he liked the combo. 
Can you live with your current speaker until you die?
Tomic, as much as I LOVE my Quatro's, I need Richard's M5 to make them sing even more ;)....I have to say that I got to hear the full System 9 by Vandersteen (7's with sub 9's) and his large amp.  (yes, the preamp will be very special and not what...

Guys, I'm basing my opinion on what I was told. Marketing wise, they could never have their 3300 speaker come close to the Treo.  There are so many differences when you add in how much more they can put into the higher priced speaker.  That said, ...

One area in phase that you is always left out is the phase of the midrange cone during playback.  If you look at the Wilson midrange it's out of phase as it's not a true pistonic driver.  That's not marketing hype by Vandersteen.  I have no idea, ...
