Daedalus Audio Apollo Speakers
Thanks Dodgelum for great and insightful review!!! I hope these speakers bring you and your family joy for many many years. 
Daedalus Audio Apollo Speakers
Apparently what is considered "top quality" is pretty subjective, eh? Also there is the question of what one is trying to achieve? We use top quality capacitors ,many of them made for us, to achieve as transparent a sound as possible. There are ot... 
Capital Audio Fest 2018--show report
btw, I always make a point of having "press sheets with all the gear and prices in my rooms and I am happy to give those to any who ask, plus we post a poster size version by the door so people can take a photo of it if they prefer.thanks, Lou Hin... 
Capital Audio Fest 2018--show report
Thank you very much for your appreciation of our ZEUS speaker system. You clearly get what it is about... no showroom wow, just a very neutral, truly full range transparent speaker.  I was worried about showing such a large speaker and that people... 
Review: Daedalus Ulysses V2 Speaker
As for power, we use the Modwright KWA150 and others also use high power amps with these. The only problem would be if an amp needs to run near rated power to sound right, which is very unusual for a quality amplifier. The advantage of lots of pow... 
High Sensitivity Speakers that work best with SS
Atmasphere, I doubt you have ever had the opportunity to actually measure the Daedalus speakers or do a direct A/B measurement with Duke's 95 db speakers so your comment appears to be based on sonic memory. these speakers have been tested in a sop... 
Devore Nines and Daedalus Athena comparison?
thanks much for all the kind words!!!I also am surprised that there were no replies on AC, looks like I will have to pay more attention to Audiogon ; )thanks, lou 
Most forgiving high end speaker 10k-20k?
Honest1, I would very much appreciate if you could email/call me re your audition experience, it would help me to know which system you heard. it does sound like they were not broken in. there was one pair which the owner sold this year after havi... 
Modwright KWA 150
The Modwright KWA 150 has the best bass of any amp I've heard, certainly in that price range. great extension, dynamics and definition. I pay a lot of attention to how an amp handles bass, and controls the drivers and the KWA does the job elegantl... 
Modwright KWA 150
on the KWA 150, I can't say enough good about this amp! it does EVERYTHING right. no tube amp coloration, but all the musicality of tubes. to clarify, the only tube amps I've heard that could draw me away from the KWA150 are a few SET amps, and of... 
Modwright KWA 150
thanks for the kudos! fwiw, I'll be heading to Dan's in a two weeks to upgrade his crossovers in the Ulysses. JAX, you'll have to come listen, I believe you'll find the speakers 'adding' less and being much more 'magical', there really is a huge d... 
Speaker cabinet made of real wood
Well I guess I have to speak up....Drew mentions the 300% improved stiffness of hardwood over MDF. to me that's a big deal and coupled with proper bracing makes for a very stiff cabinet. (using solid hardwood is not an excuse to skimp on bracing, ... 
What’s next up on the docket for you?
Thom who owns Galibier tunrtables and sells Atmasphere bought the show pair from RMAF this year and has run them with the 60's. the system impedance is not an issue because it is so flat. the Ulysses and smaller DA-RMa are very similar in sound. t... 
Help with final choice of efficient speakers
Raquel, you mention ArtAudio using Fremonts, Art Audio also use the Daedalus DA-RMa, and many other speakers. Their partner Gill Audio (David Gill) uses the Daedalus Ulysses as his reference. I have the Art Audio/Gill Alana pre and Elise DAC here ... 
Upgrading from Wilson Sophia 2's?
I have found that as the systems become more refined there is a point where those old mediocre recordings become listenable again. Yes you can hear the shortcomings but also the musicality comes through. You have great electronics, but I think the...
