So my last speakers were Avantgarde Uno Nano (you can see the system on A-gon). This a COMPLETELY different animal, totally straightforward and super easy to tune. With the Avantgarde it was not a simple or entirely intuitive system to tune the base. This system also has an control to boost or reduce a specific resonance, which fixes a 50hz bass issue in my room. Also, the Nano's had the woofers working as high as 350 hz...when you are only at 100 hz, there is a different interaction with the woofers.
In terms of drivers, the tweeters and midrange, they are Seas. The woofer is the same 12" used in the S-sub by Magico.
Thanks! Really appreciated the detail explanation. I totally agree with you in regards to the price point, I would take the quintessence in a heart beat over the Wilson's Speakers. But the down side to that is the woofer has an active amp. Me personally i am not a big fan of active dsp bass module. Extremely hard to tune, bass can be boomy or sometime out of wack! Just from my experiences with Advantgarde duo speakers.
Just out of curiosity? The tweeter, midrange, ribbon tweeter and bass drivers, do you know who is the actual manufacturer of each drivers. Please advise??
I can say that the Stealth's are amazing being finally broken in. I've had several audiophiles over to the house and they all concur that the system is a winner, excelling at imaging and listenability. The ribbon super tweeter is one of the stars...give non-fatiguing detail.
Lastly I will say that this is the best bass I've heard in my system. When are you visiting????
Thank you for the nice complements! I designed the stereo rack to mimic the bent plywood of the Eames Chair. Also, the Nelson Bench is a great diffuser and actually enhances the sonic presentation.....
You are very welcome....the speakers are beautiful and it gave me a reason to go check out their site. They remind me of Dale Pitcher's "Denali's" only a lot more beautiful to look at; do they play all types of music well? If you are ever out east in the Carolinas, let me know and we can do some listening!
