    Thanks for all who were able to come out today. I had a blast hosting you all for the past 12 hours. In all there were 5 different systems to listen to in 3 different zones. Speaker appearances included Usher 6311's, 777's, Polk LSiM 705's, Purdy Creations bookies, and the Pioneer budget bookies. The bookshelves were the most surprising: the Purdy's for the sound they put out given their insanely small size (roughly 5 stacked DVD cases) and the Pioneers for their impressive sound at such a budget price of ~$100. Amp appearances were made by Carver, Jolida, Shuguang, Yaqin, and Unison Research. There were quite a few pics taken so maybe we will see some of them shortly.



    Doug, it was a privilege to finally meet the man behind the cables. After this meet, I can say that the craftsmanship and love shown in his cables definitely represents the man well. This man truly loves audio and is dedicated to producing excellent cables at prices most anyone can afford. He did a raffle for the attendees (Marvin one again, of course) and also brought us a wealth of BBQ and sides that, personally, filled me up many times over. Given the product and integrity of the man, this is now my go-to cable company without a doubt and will be my first recommendation for anyone looking for cables.

    That was an awesome meet today. I honestly can't decide what system amazed me the most. It was all so awesome.

    It was good to meet up with everyone. Once I finish my coffee, will need to unload the speakers from the car and upload pics.

    now back to the usher cp-777 (bookshelf) To give you an idea the ushers are thicker than the lsim 705 and weigh more. My Dancer mini 2's have the Be tweeter and I have been playing with the idea of buying the diamond tweeters. The 777 has the diamond tweeter and a very revealing tweeter it is. A lot of people equate revealing with bright, this all depends on the source material. In Dskips room the 777's sometimes would overpower with bass (A bookshelf) and on some songs the diamond tweeters would cut right through you but I think with proper cable and equipment matching you would have one hell of a pair of speakers.Click image for larger version

    Derek, thank you for being a great host and welcoming us to your home. It was such a great pleasure meeting everyone and hearing some outstanding systems. The Jolida, Shuguang, Yaqin equipment we had a chance to audition were very impressive! Y'all have given me the itch for TOOBS!!!! I have to agree with Marvin "calling the usher cp-777's a bookshelf is like calling a stretch limo a sub compact"!! When the young guys carried those wonderful speakers out, you could tell they were HEAVY!! Great sounding speakers. Hearing both sets of Usher speakers was a real pleasure. They make some great speakers, and they do dig low! Loved the Polk LSiM 705's too. The little Pioneer bookies were a very impressive speaker given their price point. I'd recommend them to anyone who's looking for a smaller speaker pair under $100.

    I think a great time was had by all. Look forward to meeting up with y'all again soon

    Dan, those are the TSI Purdy speakers. They are the same as the CRM2. From what I understand, these are made by a man who was in with Bob Carver on the development, and has been given permission by Bob to make them. The only differences seem to be the Grills that the new Sunfire wanted on them. These are great little speakers.

    A funny story that happened at this GTG... I hooked these speakers up to my TFM-55, using the C-11 as a pre. Hooked the IC's for the sub up to the 2nd set of pre outs. We were all listening, and everyone was amazed at the sound these Purdy Creations speakers put out. Later after listening for awhile, I discovered I'd forgotten to hook up the IC's to the sub! So, we were even more impressed with these speakers!

    Gotcha, I remember you posting about those but wasn't sure.

    I will have to look into them, I hear good things about the CRMs but IIRC they roll off at 80hz.

    What are the specs on the Purdys?

    Frequency response on these are the exact same as the crm2's, 95 Hz to 40 kHz. Crossover is at 1.5 kHz.
