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.

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:
