    Walter has lost his mind!
    Ha Ha, maybe he has but he will be right at home at AXPONA. Some of those rooms are filled with gear from those that like to push the edge.

    The 24" Stereo Integrity sub used in his design outperforms a $4600-$9000 21" Funk Audio sub, The sub just makes sense for the those that have large 6ft-8ft open baffle speakers 1/3 of the way into a dedicated large room. Those that want to reproduce bombastic orchestral works, pipe organ, super low synth bass material, etc. The numbers down to 10Hz open baffle are astounding! Sometimes you have to go big to go accurate...plus this sub is supposed to have some pretty good sound quality and i bet it will be cheaper than $4600-$9000?

    IMO, I think other companies like Magico have lost their minds. The engineering, performance, and cost of their Q and M series. Plus, they offer a MONSTER sub also, in the Qsub-18! 570lbs, 4000 watts, $36,000! They have lost their mids for sure!

    Both companies make awesome products with great sounding rooms the years that I've gone. Check them out, Walter makes some nice sounding speakers....now he can say he has a true full range 10Hz-20KHz offering.

    AXPONA, the place where sick obsessed large and loud music soundstage freaks go to check out gear. Also, a place to loose your mind and get your mind blown at the same time.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Great job. Never been to an audio show, but in my mind a smaller room like this with smaller towers could potentially have much greater impact and excitement vs. some of the larger spaces/speakers. I'm sure it sounds fantastic.

    @DSkip What model are those towers? I've not seen Rossos with a bottom piece that small before.

    I'm sure out of my price range, but they look really schweet

    Looking good, looking forward to listening to the room today...and that Mastersound unit. Man, I'm surprised you don't have those beautiful speakers pulled out into the room more to show them off.....but I bet they probably sound better where you have them.

    The speakers are about 4' off the back wall. It looks like they are close because of the large table behind them.
