    stereo clarity room. great sounding speakers @ $5000pr. only bad thing was that the drivers were not world class, midrange was a dayton.

    vanzyl audio room, this guy has designed $20k speakers. this rather large bass horn loaded speaker was driven by a 10 watt tube amp. the big driver is a 10" full range driver. he said he would sell the speakers for $5400

    the cablepro room was a cable maker. he had a full peachtree setup and plenty of headphones. the speakers are gallo speakers ($1200pr.) that you can get from underwood wally for $429pr. they did sound good.

    Marvin, the speakers are Thoress as well. Tannoy does concentric drivers at that price and don't have bottom firing ports.

    oops! too late to edit.

    they were quite nice sounding but the powered subs made them a little expensive.
