Many changes are taking place in our system. First we have gotten in the unbelievable TAD CR1 speakers. This was a multi year search for a reference quality speaker that would play well with OTL's and could be used to check mixes on our audio/video post production work. We auditioned numerous top quality speakers, all of which got rave reviews or mentions from reviewers. Quite a few of them were outstanding performers.
But upon hearing the TAD's in our system, it was evident that designer Andrew Jones had done something unique. With millions of dollars in resources for R&D (Pioneer is the parent company) TAD has created a transducer that takes audio reproduction to a new level of fidelity, truthfulness and pure enjoyment.
The coincident arrangement of the drivers creates a wonderfully accurate point source, with excellent imaging, specificity, tonality and soundstage depth. Is vapor deposited Beryllium the next in driver technology?
Any Audiogon members visiting the Big Apple, please look me up at triodepicturesound.com (or contact me via Audiogon) just to say hi and give us your opinion.
The second big change for us is the purchase of a commercial loft in Manhattan for our video/audio post production and hi fi listening facilities.
We will be building out the facility, power, acoustics, etc. over the next several months.
