My weekend schedule did not allow for me to attend the dinner, but I really enjoyed meeting everyone.

White speakers seem to be the trend? They look nice.

The Zu Druid VI's are apparently $10,000 per pair. Like others have said, they sounded good with the Peachtree integrated amp.

Not sure I liked the Zu Druids better than the new Focals at the same price point though.

Th Peachtree unit at $2,500 seems like a bargain.

I agree, the new Focal Kanta is really a great sounding speaker!

Thanks Tom and Buck for the feedback on the McIntosh/Sonus faber room. Too bad room was too small. Guess it’s a common theme. MEN220 is no miracle box, can’t overcome poor big speaker placement. I hope to hear the Amati Tradition speakers in Houston first of next month.

I'm betting that the new Amati's are better than my Futura's. If so, you're in for a real treat! 'I love this gear combo I have now. 'Play's well together' describes it best.

I'm looking forward to your observations.

Tom

Hi Tom, here's a link from part time audiophile discussing the Homage Traditions in World Of McIntosh's listening space. Some really nice pics with the ARC gear too. I've was there last February and got to listen to them.....they sounded nice although the brick walls didn't do them any favors IMO.

#fortheloveofmusic- know you tried reaching out to me. I am in the Seattle area and we likely use the same dealer. I traded in my Alexia V1 when I got the V2s. Which are now up and running with the M400s. Great combo


Roon-Vivaldi-KXR20-M400-Alexia V2 is sounding really good.

Throw in Mezzo, Alida, Datasat RS20i and M400/S250 and movies aren't too bad either

thanks to all who provided such great input on RMAF
