    Re: My 'virtual walkaround' of MWAF/Dayton 2010...

    I'll fix that. It looks like a Vifa to me, without seeing the backside.

    It's just I don't care for the RS52, Ray. I don't like how unnatural/unreal it sounds, and that's why I went for the Usher in my Attitudes.

    I never feel the t-amp has enough guts, so I hear you.

      Just to help out some, here is a picture of the "Flames" without the covers.



      The covers are to protect the finish.

        And they sounded as good as I remembered them too!
        I didn't get a shot with them exposed.

          Gotcha! Thanks. That was my first experience with the RS52. I'll check out some other units. I'm a sucker for a nice dome mid.

          BTW, congrats on the Attitudes placing. Fantastic sound and looks. Now the stands... ;)

            Hey Bud,

            A huge congrats on placing!!!! :D

            Thanks for the kind words on the Horizons, and thanks to Brad for taking them along. Certainly not the venue for their size, but if they at least met expectations in that environment, I am happy!

            Congrats to all of the others who have placed, and even the ones who did not for the amazing looking efforts. I will make it there some year!

              I think the Gershman Sonogram used the same Morel dome mid. Darn fine sounding speaker, too. Great on voice. They would make a good reference.

                Me too! The HiVi DMN-A/B are nice, Morel MDM55/CAM-558 are nice, and I've been told the ATC is the best (but can't afford it). The RS52 is Peerless-India made, so you'd get the same unit there. LPG had one that was decent, but I've only heard the NLA textile. One of my next pair will have Dynaudio D76AF in them....

                Thank you! Yeah- just not enough time to finish them. I have had those awhile, but I had to 'reinforce' them to support the Attitudes' weight, and didn't get them finished in time.

                  Wolf,
                  Maybe if Shotgun Willie had shown up, there wouldn't have been so much complaining about the rest of the music.;)

                  I hope to attend next year.

                    The mid I used is an Usher 9845, so not the Morel this time.

                      Thanks, Mikey!
                      Your NH really were nice! I thought there might be a small hole or dip between, but I was impressed. You even still managed to keep the midrange clear. Think I woulda bottom-vented for myself.

                          Wolf said: "The amp was a QSC GX3/5, and I don't recall the CD source..."

                          It was a Denon professional unit of some type-- I didn't catch the model, though. Studio, DJ, or installation-style. One rack space, 1-disc. Similar to this:

                          http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...umber=245-3512

                          Regarding the QSC GX series: First one I've seen in person, and I was pleased with the build quality-- especially for the asking price! Faultless sound to my ears, and, no amp clipping at THIS EVENT :D !

                            My apologies, but we'll agree to disagree there! Definitely not to my tastes!! Riders in the Sky, if Google is any help. But then, not that there wasn't at least one instance that weekend that "my tastes" were called into question and made light of!

                            "It's all good", though! If we all had the same likes and dislikes, it'd be pretty boring, and nobody wants that :eek:...

                                Thanks again Wolf. You will be hearing from me soon. You lit a fire again for me. I was getting into a funk. All the building and studying I have done a too few around to share it with here...

                                I have the wife buying into the notion of me making the MWAF next year, so keep them fingers crossed!!! :D:D:D
