Escalante Fremont II

Anyone owning the latest revision (2 i assume) of Escalante Design Fremont?
Escalante for all intents and purposes is a closed deal and no longer in production. I spoke to Matt Waldren the owner a few months ago, he and Teri are working on a subwoofer but are early in design. I doubt they will return.

I personally loved my Fremonts, and thus why I can't sell them! As for shipping, they weigh some 600 pounds a pair in four crates (yep, stands get their own crate!) so each 'monitor' weighs about 100 pounds. I found the Fremonts to be insanely dynamics and able to play loud and go deep as well. Despite their ultra high efficiency they like some serious power to really open up and sing.
was the Escalante outfit not an offshoot from the original Talon Audio out of Utah? If so Rives Audio took over Talon so you might want to contact them. If I'm wrong about the Escalante/Talon link then I apologize in advance...
Having just written a post elsewhere on A'gon I'm pasting here too because it's relevant re Fremont II........
Bit of a time lapse in response!
Yes I've heard these speakers, it felt risky but I bought them unheard from a reliable and professional source in the UK where I live and I have not looked back. I use them with an AyonTriton III Valve Integrated usually on the Triode setting which pushes out 70W a side.
Given their 93db sensitivity this is loud and powerful enough to give me what I need from my music. The speakers are revealing and don't tolerate poor recordings. Dial a quality recording in from my sources...CD, DAB/FM Radio or Vinyl and the results are sublime. No need for a sub woofer, 12" drivers do the job great, the one's you can see, there is another 12" hidden within the cabinet. The scanspeak revelator tweeter is reputed to be one of the best in the business. I get it all....soundstage, musicality, pace, rhythm and yes....timing lol! The sound is clear, detailed, unfatigueing, true to whatever quality of recording has been achieved by the musicians and engineers. I play hand percussion Latin mainly so I'm very keen to hear the accurate reproduction of conga drums and the various hand techniques employed in the playing of those wonderful drums. The speakers were previously owned by the owner of a high end turntable manufacturing co who used them for a good few years to listen through to hear the various developments of his own products. He needed a reliable benchmark for that, these were it. Anyway my risk paid off, they are about 10 yrs old and are Fremont MkII. Greg Weaver and others put out reviews which I studied and together with the credibility of the first owner, although I took 6 months to decide, I plunged in to buy them. Piano black in colour, on matching purpose designed stands. I'm so glad the previous owner imported them, took such good care of them and I'm happy I was able o make the decision to buy and enjoy them.
