Y No YG ?
Wow Magico A3 better than Carmel? Was that carmel 2?Any comparison between Sonja 2.2 and M6 or M3 ? 
Are silk dome tweeters actually silk?
I talked to YG Acoustics and they said their billet dome tweeter is silk with a metal frame, but when pressing them they state its not real silk its synthetic polyester. 
What have other owners of Tekton Design Ulfberht Speakers discovered?
@iwin what other speakers have you compared them to ? 
Speaker Thoughts - YG Acoustics Hailey 2.2 vs Magico S5 MK II
I heard atria and although its good, it can't compare to magico m2 which was far superior. But having said that haven't heard s5 mk2.Anymore thoughts on hailey 2.2 vs s5 mk2 ? 
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
@audiotroy I think you are right. Also if I did it, I would get it completely blacked out. Would look amazing.Wow thats surprising about the polymer speaker. I wouldn't say the contriva g2 is n ight and day better than the persona 9H but definitel... 
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
@audiotroy  Honestly the 9H is an incredible value (especially for dealer prices I am getting). I would say they offer up a lot of the detail and imaging that I heard on the far more expensive Contriva G2 (although the CG2 was definitely superior)... 
beryllium vs diamond
The 7F and especially 9H sounded super crystal clear and transparent to me. Both with moon gear. They were only out done in detail, imaging and clarity by the Magico M2 and Tidal Contriva G2. These speakers costs far more. 
Vimburg?
@soix  did he have the mk1 or mk2 ?So heard the Tonda-D and Contriva G2... both amazing... to summarize, Tonda-D is detailed, natural and relaxed, the Contriva is hyperdetailed, laser like but still musical and immersive.Posted full impressions on... 
beryllium vs diamond
Getting a bit back on track. Anyone notice differences between diamond tweeters such as those on tidal speakers and those on b and w 800 series ? 
beryllium vs diamond
Stereophile has an interesting paragraph on the  Magico Be-Diamond tweeter:"A beryllium dome is both light enough and stiff enough to behave pistonically, and was used in the Magico Q5, which Michael Fremer reviewed in November 2012. Applying a la... 
Magico S5 Speaker - owners - heard them!
What speakers do you guys like more than s5 mk2 ? 
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
Man you guys are making me want the 9H! @audiotroy  What other speaker have you heard do you think could compete with the 9H in the same price category?Ya Mike is a bit weird. Every time you ask him what electronics he used for the 9H he doesn't s... 
Tidal Speakers owners
@calloway going to hear both tomorrow also, look forward to your thought though.I wonder how the diamond tweeter on the tidal compares to the Tonda D diamond tweeter and another diamond tweeter like a BW 800 D3 series. 
Vimburg?
I just saw the Mino and tonda at a dealer and the build quality is exceptional. They just look stunning. Will probably listen to them tomorrow.
