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.






The price is on their website, $2,950 in painted MDF and $3,250 in solid hardwood baffle.....add $150 shipping. I bought mine in maple, and the total invoice was $3,400.

Let’s see, from listening to an online video presentation you say these new speakers go deeper, tighter and with a more seemless xover......ha ha. So, did you A/B in your own room the Caladan with the latest $9800 X4 Ultra’s? The woofers in the X4 and the ones in the Caladan are the same. The X4 has a way heavier and more dead baffle and stand. The latest X4 has a completely redone xover, super....I mean super parts. I am sure it sounds way, way, way better than any of the X3s, and X5s that anyone has heard.....including Ron. The midrange driver in the old X3 and X5 had horrible binding posts on them.....yikes, no way you can get transparency through a junk brass binding post. These new woofers by Beyma used on the X4 and the Caladan have copper tabs for the inputs.....not massive brass posts. Way better. We should make "noise" when we really know something is true. Otherwise, it is best to make Nonoise.......he he.

I was responding to a post by Nonoise......but I don't see his post.  Anyway, some Info for you.
