I know you guys always want me to spend alot of time with my gear before I post a review, well this won't be a review. But this will be for you guys to keep up-to-date on what is staying and leaving and why. I only have 2 days to compare these speakers and that will be the deciding factor.
I already started the compare and one model is already behind.
I will *NOT* post which model is which UNTIL the end of the comparison. They will be done as Model A, Model B.
I will be using familar music -- From Dave Mathews, To Linkin Park...
Anyways - Here is the gear layout.
Preamp - NAD 917
Amp - Soundcraftsmen PCR-800 (Def Tech BP6B, PA RTi70)
Amp 2 - Adcom GFA-545 (PA RT5)
CD Player - Denon DCM-280
Mains 1 - PA RTi70/RT5
Mains 2 - Def Tech BP6B
Subwoofer - SVS PCi 22-31
This entire shootout is based on my opinion. Please note, I am a Polk Audio and a Definitive Technology fan. I am not bias towards any of the speakers and each comparison will be done constructively. This is another reason why speakers will be referred to as Model A and B, and will be revealed at the END** of the shootout to control pissing contests.
The shootout will be updated each day and will keep you in touch with which one is ahead. Sunday night, the winner will be revealed.
Stay tuned. I will post pictures Monday.
