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.






😂 Sorry but it’s a hard pass as far as taking any communication advice from you. 

And saying it twice doesn’t make it anymore astute. 

@woodsage Well, at least that was much more clear than your first post — a step in the right direction and keep up the good work!


@woodsage  So, what’s your point here cause I don’t see one.  A guy with more speaker design “bonafides” than you’ll ever know in your lifetime puts out what looks to be a potentially very high value product and you have to crawl outta your hole and call it a “loss leader” with no evidence to support such other than being a woodworker???  Gimme a break.

Actually, based on woodsage's A’gon history, he has had 323 completed transactions with a total positive feedback score of 1092 in the last 14 years, and only 71 posts.  Safe to say that he actually "walks the walk" more than just "talks the talk".

@ricevs I am not sure if you’ve heard Wilson’s or Vivid’s properly set up in a good room(not a show in a hotel.) You never been to GTT Audio for example.

A lot of Arm chair quarterbacks always think rich people have the money to pull them out into their grand ballroom but some have a wife or family space that is shared. 
 You also can’t go buy measurements and the paper woofers they use from these open baffle companies are not the same quality as the ones Wilson use. 
Vivid btw you hear no cabinet just like an open baffle buy the way they use tapered tubes to take out 100% of the cabinet resonances. They sound “open” without the compromises of cheaper drivers, better imaging and much better tighter and faster bass.

I love the way @pennfootball71 comes into a thread bashing three thousand dollar speakers as midfi, and to prove his point he compared them to speakers costing many thousands of dollars (some even six figures).

Where does midfi end and high end begin for you Mr. Penn? Can’t you come up with a better comparison than that? You go straight to Wilson and Vivid. Have you even heard any of the better open baffle designs?

OB speakers surely aren’t targeting the Wilson crowd. Obviously there’s too much chest beating puffery in that neighborhood.
