Green Mountain Audio Chroma HX

Hi, Folks,
Do any of you have any experience with the latest iteration of Roy Johnson's Green Mountain Audio Rio stand mount? He's upgraded the crossover and internal wiring, and it's now called the Chroma HX.
Any impressions?


"That would be off topic."

You made your room and your amp "on topic" when you attacked Roy and his speakers based on how they sounded in your room and with your amp.

"[unreasonable and unfounded attack... unreasonable and unfounded attack... unreasonable and unfounded attack]...So why is it wrong for me to state that no measurements were made?"

Because it is wrong to lie.


I think Kenjit should share HIS measurements that back his claims. What did you use to take your measurements? Why not show your proof of your claims? Surely all of your measurements and the method you used would be of some importance in this discussion. 
I have  been listing to my GMA RIO hxs that received the GMA new burn in treatment  for the crossovers. This treatment  is even more of an improvement  in the sound than the chroma hx upgrade was. They now blow away any of the many good speakers I nave owned over the past 40 years. The improved  detail and musicality result in far more enjoyment in listing to my cds and vinal. They are more musical than any of the systems I heard at  the Oakland  hi fi show recently. Everyone  who hears them is blown away by their sound. Many thanks to Roy Johnson and his expertise in speaker building.

 Thnnks again !

Thank you Steve, for your kind support and to the others as well!

To be clear: Your Chroma II’s were upgraded to Chroma HX-- the differences described on our website. And now your HX circuits and wires, and solder, and binding posts have received a special burn-in process.

While I cannot elaborate on the nature of the burn-in, it is the result of years of lengthy experiments based upon physics discussions of the ’nature of flaws in man-made devices’ with the designers of crossover parts, including wires, solder, and binding posts, and with the designers of drivers.

Steve, your speakers are still labeled "Chroma HX" on their backsides, but marked as ’burned in" in our logs. I don’t yet have a name for ’the process’.

Dave, who just posted his HX review here, also received this burn-in. It was put into production for all products earlier this year, and everyone has had the same reactions. I am probably the most surprised at the difference it made in the sound. I’m certainly glad you are pleased!

Hey, rebbi !
