yes, so is Fremer. But I do like them both, especially Fremer, he has a wealth of knowledge and is quite witty.

I just watched part of Fremer's "video" (if you could call it that) from RMAF.

I left a "continuous improvement" (aka kaizen) note on his YT comments to 1) get a gimbal for his camera when shooting video so we don't get queasy watching his very shakey camera technique 2) to be considerate of his subjects, pull back a bit and show their face, head and shoulders of the person he's talking to so we're not listening to a "decapitated" voice.

You'd think that someone who is so fussy (and presumably, skilled) about something as technically-challenging as turntable setup could do bring some simple and basic technique to shooting a video.

Agreed. One time I took one of his factory visits I was watching on my phone and cast it to my television to watch...it was painful, I felt like I was watching through a keyhole.

Fremer has earned tons of respect...he is much more objective and truly skilled IMHO.

Had a great time in Estes Park/RMNP for three days after RMAF. Here is a Flickr album of pics if anyone wants to take a look. If you pull up the individual pics, you can see my captions for many of them.

I spoke with one of the Sonus guys and I get it, they wanted to showcase the new Olympica Novas on the other wall and feature these as more of a "nearfield" listening experience. I understand what he was saying, but why you would ever use a pair of these in a nearfield experience is beyond me. Hard to comment on the sound, they were playing an old jazz/big band type recording that sounded almost mono so I'll reserve judgement.





Wilson Audio WAMM + wife = "But honey, what's $650,000 in the grand scheme of things?"




I'm sure they sound fantastic, but the Wilson is too much. .
