    Default MIT Demo - Round 2

    Well, let me just say that somehow MIT found out about our little Club Polk demo (See here) , and they liked the innovative idea. They liked it so much, that Gavin Fish, MIT Sales Manager, is offering what I think is a wonderful and unique opportunity for the Club Polk community:

    TEST A COMPLETE SET OF THE NEW CVT-1 CABLES, IN YOUR RIG, IN YOUR HOME!!!!!


    Thatís right. One 8 ft speaker cable (non bi-wire), and two pairs of 1 meter RCA ICís. The total MSRP of these is over $2,800, so no need to say this is a VERY generous offer (and I must add, speaks wonders about Club Polk and the trust MIT is putting on its members).

    So how is this going to work? First of all, the current demo will stop now. The CVT-1's were delivered to me yesterday, and I'll start breaking them in and test them for four weeks. After that they will start rotating as per the list we'll maintain here. Initially I just copied the same list from the original demo, and we'll start from there. Of course anyone in the current list can opt-out if they want to.

    REQUIREMENTS TO GET IN THE LIST:

    -More than six months in Club Polk of ACTIVE and PRODUCTIVE participation.
    -Positive Feedback in our Flea Market.
    -You'll have to pay for shipping (and packaging if needed) when you send them to the next in line, with signature required and insurance for half MSRP:
    Speaker Cables: $750
    IC's: $350 each pair.
    -If there's any damage or cables are lost, sender will need to lead and follow up the claim with the carrier.


    PROCESS:

    -Demo will last no more than 4 weeks.
    -Sender owns coordinating communications with the next in line (request address, etc)
    -Highlighted name means cables are in his/her possession.
    -Sender must inform me (via PM) when the cables ship.
    -Receiver must inform me (via PM) when cables are received.
    -Once you are done, you must post a review in this thread, saying if you found any differences with other cables, be it better or worse.
    -Cables will be sent back to MIT once the demo is finished (This could be once there's no more people on the list, or at any time MIT decides they want them back....I don't see a reason they would want to do this, but it's their cables...)

    Enjoy!!!!


    Here's the demo participant's list:

    Is this correct? One speaker cable and 2 IC's?

    I haven't been around for quite 6 months yet, but I'll be getting there soon. I'd love to jump in on this when I get to 6 months. Do you have to have feedback as a seller, or is positive feedback as a buyer sufficient? I only have one as a buyer, so I don't know if that meets the criteria or not.

    Very cool that MIT is offering these up for a demo though. That says a lot about their company as a whole.:)

    Excellent deal. Props to the Polkies offering the cables, and MIT:)
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks

    Exactly. You will be able to connect source-preamp-amp-speakers with the same cable technology. MIT says that this is how you can get the most out of their cables.

    One more process thingy...I will update the list once a week or so :)

    Makes sense about the IC's, but with only 1 speaker cable it doesn't make as much sense... It's not 1 pair?

    Of course it makes sense that it's a pair. But that's what he posted, someone questioned it and he still indicated it was as posted. Assumption is the mother of all f'ups. Was just looking for clarification, that's all.

    Ricardo, if I am looking at the list, and an average of 4 weeks of auditioning time, are we looking at approx. 20 months away before I got to see it, assuming I put my name today?

    Just curious...thanks for organizing this awesome demo.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    add me to the list please.

    thanks.

    how long do people get to keep the cables? I hope not to long as it would be cool if these make the rounds to everyone.

    1. please handle them with care
    2. please don't let them sit un-demoed in your home/rig
    3 keep the demo to a minmum

    these are just suggestions. but my experience has been the above three things tend to kill a demo for the next person in line and everyone else behind them.

    cool... i look forward to trying these babies out.

    Yes, it's about a month for each participant and that makes 12 per year...but you know that time flies. Just put your name on the list and get things rolling. The original demo I think went pretty well, and this one will be even better :)

    Ricardo, with all due respect. I beg to differ.. 4 weeks to demo something? that to me seems a bit much. Why not cut the time in half and just make it two weeks?
    You have to also figure in shipping time. That can be anywhere from a few short days to a week or more between people.

    I think most people can add them to their system and demo them properly in two weeks.

    It's your call of course.. since it's your demo, you can set any parameters you like.

    I look forward to the MIT's.

    Doubt everybody would keep them a full month ya know.

    Like the idea of having a month if needed, but I'm good with 2 weeks as well.

    I'm just thankful to get to demo a pair of upper end cables.
