Default Montreal's Festival Son & Image

Saturday I was at the Montreal's Festival son et image.

It was simply amazing, 14 floors of the best audio material ever.

Among the 4 best speakers I heard there, 3 were using full range drivers, the fourth one was the well known Cabasse Kara [Pic].

I was really marked by 1 speaker, the RL acoustique Lampipe. This speaker simply had perfect mids. (www.rlacoustique.com)

It was a TL using a full range driver wich looked like the Fostex FE166E. (and yes, those are Tenor audio amps) [pic]

I also admired a back loaded horn wich simply was awsome, those were some piano notes I will never forget (Somehow I managed to forget the name of the speaker ) It was using something like this AER driver.

http://www.aer-loudspeakers.com/mk2.htm

I tryed finding the MK-2 drivers, I only could come up with the MK-1 drivers at $2500 per pair .


And the last one was the Loth-x : Ambience [Pic]. The guitar solo I heard on this speaker was too realistic to be true. I was there not beleiving what I was hearing. Anyone knows what driver is this?

I think my next project will be the Back loaded horn proposed by fostex on their website using their FE166E. I just need money hehe.

btw, anyone knows why the Reps R-1 drivers are $7500 per pair??

I remember that this system did sound very good (the last pic I posted, the one using the Shanling CD player).

I can't tell you for sure that it was the cd player making that great sound, or the very good record, or the speakers/amp.
I remember the vocals did sound very natural.

But I can say for sure that this cd player sure looks damn good

This one too,

Thanks!

I didnt go friday because I expected to see too much people, and some unready companies.
But even saturday there was alot of people, and some irrespectful ones just couldn't stop talking and laughing in the rooms when some of us were concentrating on the music, I just hate that....

I was looking forward to hear the Arro but Totem decided to show some other models.

Some 4" woofer / 19mm tweeter floorstanding speakers like the Opera Pavarotti threw me off my chair.


Heres a pic of the Arro
