RE: Best Speakers RE: Best Speakers

Its a full-range-driver rather than concentric/coaxial.

My guess its one of these...

Sorry can't resist it. Can I bring my friend Hawkins to see them yesterday David?

Are you actually anything to do with this speaker company?  Or have you fallen out with them and want your bizarre postings to actually hole them below the water-line?

Forum members, can you imagine trying to get any after-sales support from this person????

Congrats fella, you really are making a pigs-ear of this.

That's right.

Tried it, years ago. Didn't quite work out. I got ill and stuff.

Having a relatively flat frequency down to subsonic levels is impressive for the largest speakers, much less a small monitor.

And the overhang problems it brings, plus the inertia of large drives means you need a dedicated mid-range involving yet MORE problems in drive matching, x-overs, time alignments... The list gets endless...

I would love to hear a pair to determine if that impressive bass response is at the expense of anything else, or just a genuine technological advancement. 

I will do whatever I can to help you.

RE: Best Speakers

Sadly I suspect he is genuine, the website has similar nonsense on it if you can bear to look.  For example the comment form doesn't have name/email/comment but (and I kid you not) "Appellation"/"E-dress"/"Any pearls of wisdom for our perusal".  I think this is meant to be humorous but the phrase "lead balloon" comes to mind.

They look like regular passive two-way speakers to me. What's special about them?

Would love to. Tried it before but no body believed me.

Would love to do it now; Ali bodies from casting manufacturers, stone-slab cabs, yacht birch ply, different build techniques from different furniture craftsmen, a Blitz on the hifi world, all the trades pulling together to get my tech out there in all their different styles. Mmm, with a world beating advantage? YES PLEASE!!!

Again, where are you based? It would be my pleasure to arrange such a demonstration for you.

 

RE Bold point 1: I'm sure you can appreciate that persons will be highly skeptical when someone claims to have developed a real breakthrough in tech. Especially when it's from a small (relatively unknown) company. All you need is patience and to get out more and more review samples to customers, mags and dealers. 

You have the attention of many in this thread, including David from FrankHarveyHiFi. Send him a demo pair (don't worry about whether someone at his store wasn't interested in the past or whatever, take advantage of the opportunity in front of you now). You can see how well AVI has done by capturing the attention of members of this forum, you can do the same (assuming your product works as claimed).

 

Re Bold point 2: It will probably be a while before I'd be able to demo a pair, as I'm currently living in Jamaica. When I move, hopefully there will be a dealer near by.

Lots of brilliant persons are eccentric (so it is possible that he is legit). There are some especially "interesting" personalities in HiFi. Just check out interviews/online posts from Peter Q (Audio Note), Antony Michaelson (Musical Fidelity and Ashley James (AVI).

That's right, time for more unverifiable personal accusations against our verifiable scientific proof.

Nice. Like your style.

I'm just abiding by the OP's request for a suggestion for the world's best loudspeaker. I've posted views, opinions, professional reviews, scientific proofs... What do you want, Troll? Who are you spamming for?

Hi Ajani

You've obviously read the whole thread. Respect, dude. It would be a pleasure to sort a demo for you as soon as you hit the UK.

Dave? You can contact me direct via the publicly available info, a luxury I don't posses for you.

RE: Best Speakers

I'm pretty sure he can be found at his first name followed by @frankharvey.co.uk

I for one would be interested in David's opinion. Certainly can't accuse you of being shy and retiring, can we. Only hope the speakers are a little easier to listen to than the salesman (sorry, couldn't resist  Smile )

 

ps I hope posting this is ok, I found the email address online so figured it was public knowledge. If not or against the rules let me know and I will edit.

Do let us know if he gets in touch won't you David.
