    My (brief) report is on Stereo Times.

    I have already showed him how to find the web address of his pages on Stereotimes on a thread on HTT. I guess Larry does not bother to learn anything that is computer-related. :lol:

    I've explained it to him before as well. We just have to accept that we have to humor him like our favorite grandfather.

    Larry knows full well how to do these things. But like a favorite Grandfather, it is so much more entertaining to do nothing and torment the grand kids.

    The good news is, you're too busy with the old age jokes to criticize my show report. ;)

    Good impression report Larry, good pictures too. I am somewhat surprised you liked the DCM speakers.

    Anything that has REALLY impressed you, and why ?

    And about the Reimyo system, do you think the lack of dynamics was caused by a mismatch between the amp and the speakers ? And if you have looked more closely at the new transport, would you agree that it is very, very similar to a CEC transport (with add-ons) ? It looks like a TL-51XR with bigger feet...

    David:

    The DCM were easy to listen to, and an amazing bargain.

    Geof:

    The lack of dynamics in the reimyo room is the result of Bravos' small size and low efficiency; the fact that the Reimyo amp is not outstanding contributes, but I doubt it is the main factor.

    I foolishly didn't ask about the Reimyo transport, so I don't know much about it.

    There was nothing at the show that wowed me. There were two horn systems I didn't mention in my write-up; one was dreadful beyond description (and cost about $70,000!); the other (Haniwa) had potential but wasn't quite what I hoped it would be.

    Sometimes I wonder if its difficult to make a mediocre horn system. They tend to fall in one of the extreme camps in my admittedly limited experience.

    CJ: oh yes, there are some truly horrid horn systems with metallic, throaty, harsh sounds.

    Larry: The DCM design philosophy is and always has been about time alignment which is one reason they do sound extremely good. But they are multi-driver, mid-efficiency systems with huge crossovers that largely EQ and shape the voicing and driver phase and timing of the system. My kinda design, actually. :)

    Fool

    Thanks Larry :)

    So you think the Reimyo SET is not outstanding - was it the first time you had listen to it, or do you base your opinion on other listening sessions ? And what is lacking in your opinion ?

    P.S.: I have never heard the preamp nor the amp from Reimyo. At their retail price, they were not my... err... first choice to look at. :) But I am always curious...

    See, I wouldn't call that mediocre, which is my point. I'd call that horrid which is one of the extremes I was referring to.
