I have loved music from a very young age and been building various systems for over 35 - 40 years. With 7 beautiful Children funds have to be very carefully and cleverly spent and I feel very happy with my current system. Seismic Isolation has been paramount to achieving the best possible sound in my somewhat challenging room. Just replaced the 2 x REL S/812’s with 1 REL Studio lll and 1 REL Studio ll absolutely awesome subwoofers for music! For best performance I found Isolating the Rel’ Subs from the floor was paramount for best Bass performance.

Hi John,
Thanks for your comment on my system.
Tetra speakers so impressed me with their “real” sound that I bought the company. No, actually, I became their marketing guy. I’ve never heard any line of speakers which grabs me in such a way.
And I can’t rave enough about Townshend products especially the Podiums.
They literally transformed my system. The improvement is as much as my speakers!


Thank you opera1. In my room they image very well and provide great realism. The REL Studio lll fills in the bottom end beautiful.

Lovely. As a fellow Apogee fan, the only way you could do better is to upgrade to Tekton….. ha.
Glad to hear in an interview that Max is a “ listen and measure “ kind of guy.
Looks like a lovely, musical system. Jokes aside, my absolute best to you.
