beetlemania,tomthiel and Rob have said they lack the schematics for any of the active electronics (at least until the bankruptcy is settled - the hope being that they might turn up once they can sift the ashes). This includes all of the sub amps. ...

beetlemania,I may be coming into your 2.4 saga late, but when you mention sub reinforcement, why do you go Vandersteen? Rather than Thiel that have very well matched subs - particularly via speaker level PX crossovers? I have at least 6 different ...

I have a Starke Sound AD4.320 amp on trial currently. Had some issues getting it working with my PX-02 crossover and USS sub, but suddenly everything worked. Intermittent connection somewhere. I have Powerpoint 1.2’s on my hardwood over (heavy urb...

Jon_5912,About wire/cable effects, I’m with you - a bit skeptical (and feeling bad about it). That said, I have to think that if there are effects, many would come from length, not to mention physical connections/interfaces (as tomthiel has found)...

tomthiel et al,What are your thoughts on this paper from Townshend Audio about cable technology. Would seem to fly in the face of everything we - or at least I - know or believe about speaker level cable:http://www.townshendaudio.com/PDF/The%20Sou...

Jon_5912,Back to amp question, you might want to check out Starke Sound's AD4.320. They are on sale, satisfy many of your requirements, offer hassle free 30 day in home trial. A unique D class module boosted to 600kHz and analog power supply. No a...

That’s surprising. When I recently contacted them, they replied the same day - on a weekend no less. In subsequent followup email, I got a personal reply from the founder/owner himself. That said, a recent followup inquiry has not yet been answere... 
Finally found THE SPEAKER!!!
@drewdeSpeaking of perforated screens and speakers behind, what screen do you plan to use so as not to ruin the sound of the Wisdoms? Do you know what Wisdom was using in their demo theater? 
Finally found THE SPEAKER!!!
BTW, Drew, you may be interested in the fact that the original BG Radia company (from which Wisdom spun off) was bought by Christie - primarily for the IP and planar driver technology. As you know, Christie is a major movie theater display/speaker... 
Finally found THE SPEAKER!!!
@drewdeYou asked about suggested amps. VTV or Apollon are two manufacturers who can customize exactly what configurations you want and at economical prices - particularly given the number of channels you’re going to require!I must also correct my ... 
Finally found THE SPEAKER!!!
Take a look at VTV or Apollon for US based makers of multichannel Hypex or Purifi based amps. You could have them customize exactly what you want - 500 watts for bass, 250 or 125 for tweeter sections, etc. But you’re probably gonna need to use Wis... 
Finally found THE SPEAKER!!!
drewde,I have salivated over Wisdom Audio for years. Decades actually. The closest I came were some BG Radia 520dx made by Bohlender Graebener at the turn of the millennia. BG manufactured the planar units for Wisdom, started by Graebener when he ...

@tomthiel...from 12/28... on your question concerning DAC/pre’s and the Benchmark DAC... have you been to audio science review.com? I think you will find it interesting. Your Benchmark amp truly lives up to its name. The Benchmark DAC does very we...
