I called Steve the other day to talk to him about his new Audeze 'phones and he mentioned the new ALS arriving. Damn, you guys must live under a lucky star. Those are damn fine speakers! I've been lucky enough to hear(IIRC)every iteration and each is better than the last. Sensational score

Congrats

Will do.  I have 3 accounts in TAS - need to remember to login to the right one so it will let me edit.   ;D

This week (beginning Feb 5th) would be a good week for anybody that wants to come audition the ALS speakers. I have TIDAL HIFI and of course you're welcome to bring vinyl, cassettes, or reel to reel tapes (1/4", quarter track, 7.5ips, 7" or 10.5" reels. Now that I've lived with them and played them extensively for a while all I can say is holy shit. They have a truly "amazing" soundstage and incredible clarity. They just plain sound so real.
One correction from previous info. The sub is a PHASETECH Power 10 not a Polk. I'm very pleased with it. You guys with manual turntables can see the Q-up I added to BJ's Funk Firm turntable. I found a special on two for a reduced price so I ordered the extra one for Pepé. It's simple but awesome. I know Pepé loves his.

At some point when BJ has time I would like to try them with the miniDSP 2x4 HD.  The HD version has twice the bandwidth  and processing power than the one James sent with your speakers.  Since they sound so friggin good with the basic 2x4,  I would love to hear the improvement with the high def version  (I have one).
