New speakers unveiled from Clayton Shaw - Caladan

As I understand it, Clayton developed these speakers after he parted with Spatial Audio.  At a cost of ~$3K, which is astounding, and a beautify wood baffle, they look sensational.  I heard the sound of them in the video below on my cans and was super-impressed.  They go very low in response as well. I can't wait to hear more reviews of them as I am sure that they will be excellent performers for a really affordable price.  You have lived until you have had OB speakers in your room, which is just my humble opinion.






I was an early adopter of the X3. I paid 7500.00 and that was before the big price increase. Although they were very good speakers, ultimately they weren’t for me so I moved on.  Now that speaker is where I can see a good sized profit being made. I’d guess he might have had 3000.00 (tops) in parts.


I have never owned an open baffle speaker and am feeling tempted to consider this one.  Would you mind sharing what it is about OB speaker that makes them midfi?

Open baffle is midfi




I don’t think I can go along with that at all. Sounds like an uninformed opinion to me.

Not a lot of bass! They need a lot of room to breath and they don’t image as well.
