Re: WELL, IT'S OFFICIAL !!!

James.

I'm very happy for you, now get off your butt and start making them.

It's a pity Bob is not showing them at CES Jan 10-13th in Vegas, he only says he is showing his VTL-305 amps.

Slightly off topic but relevent...

James, any word on the release of these speakers to the public? Maybe an unofficial or official debut date and location from Bob Farinelli?

One more thing [we haven't chatted in a while], is Bob still planning on using a tubed crossover?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

The show in March is going to be the first public appearance that the ALS Speakers will be making as a sellable item. We are going to be taking (2) sets of speakers (I keep telling dad 3), one set will be black and one set will be a custom High Quality Automotive paint job.

As far as the tubed crossover, Bob is working o it as we speak. He received the black set of ALS Speakers about a week and a half ago, and he has been tweaking like a mad scientist since! :lol: :lol:

My system (sitting in the garage):

(Stereo System)
Modified Carver AL III+'s (Pushed into the corners to make room for the ALS speakers)
Modified CarverFest 2011 20w tube amplifier
Carver Pro PT-1800
Sunfire Prototype TGA-2375
Carver TX-2 Tuner (not used)
Logitech Squeezebox (replaced Tuner & dad's CD player)
CARVERaudio Directional RCA interconnects
RCA-Headphone jack for iPod & iPhone
Next
