Uhhhhhhh, Dan, I think that you will find that the slim tower design is purely cosmetic. If they sound better to you, obviously, that's fine but the slim cabinet design is a market driven thing.
Again, I sense that you and your partner feel that if it wasn't built in the last 10 years (or less) than it certainly can't be worth listening to, which is simply not true
The speaker comments and wires non the less are natural progression in the industry.Most if not all companies try to improve on there technology.The wide rattle box speaker design compared to the sleeker todays style tower design........in our opnion sound a hell of alot better.
As far as the RT/SDA/LSi comparison, that's your opinion and you are welcome to it. IMO, I think my RTA's, overall dust the RTi series, but we could make these comparisons all day.
The plain fact of the matter is that you and your companion (although he has been far more civil of late) come off like JUST because you installers that you automatically know everything there is to know about audio and that the rest of us are blithering dolts who have no right to hold or express an opinion much less question yours. I say this not to be harsh, I say this because it may help explain (although this isn't the first time this has been said) why folks make the comments that they do.
The fact of the matter is, just because you are installers means little.
Whatever Dan, I offered a little constructive criticism, nothing more. Apparently it did no good.
Whatever Dan, I was just trying to help you out and try to help you understand why you get the reactions that you do. Not throw stones. Obviously, you either can't take constructive criticism or you could care less. Either way, I tried to help and I'm done with you.

Huh? I don't quite follow you here. What am I wanting to demo? Am I just being really dense, even for a guy that likes some high-end wire?

rlw, in now way was my statement meant as a slam...
when I said patient it was not regarding you in any way but referring to the topic and thats all. This is a very good topic which deserves my attention and I also enjoy learning and reading others experience.
For me and me alone when I say demo I don't believe I can distinguish audio difference because of wire. I have a very untrained ear and I am not schooled or understand what goes into criticle listening. I know for a fact that I heard an improvement when I added a 200 Watt rms time 7 channels to my HT rig but for me to discern what is good or bad is very difficult. I know at the levels I listen there is no way in hell to clip or stress the amp but it seamed to add a clarity that I was not expecting. Wire on the other hand confuses the hell out of me.
I have some big fat monster stuff on my Front L/R and bought it on the cheap, 50 bucks, but damn I could not hear the difference from my Rat Shack 12 guage with banana plugs. I swapped back and forth so many times my wife thought I was nuts! Perhaps its just me and I don't have the skill so in my case why bother with the added expense? I'm saving my coin for feature upgrades and let the audiofile stuff to the gifted.
Thats all I'm saying

My posts all come from experience not some mag I read or thing I read online
With that being said...how many pairs of Wilson Watt Puppies have you listened to????
Have you ever made the trip to Soundex?I worked there for awhile Installing,and It was the best audio/video experience on my professional quest
Alot of guys around here post more about what they read then what they hear
