Emerald Physics, Core Power Technologies, PS Audio, Underwood HiFi.

These were open baffle speakers but didn't have the big, open, and phase response. Sounded like good speakers.

Thanks To You by Boz Scaggs. https://shz.am/t5161030

OK, I am officially tired of this track. :)


Good imaging but like many rooms at the show, center image was small due to narrow distance between speakers.

Classic demo track:

Sounded superb. Open baffle speakers have such ease and low distortion quality to me.

Trouble And Love by Mary Gauthier. https://shz.am/t124540339


Nice and open sounding. Vocals sounded a bit lispy though. Not sure if it was the content or not. Need to listen to main system.

Magnetic Lies by Malia & Boris Blank. https://shz.am/t105637333

Asked him to turn it up to see how much power the speakers could handle. The sound because sharp and annoying at the limit. Both of us knew the amp had run out of juice.
