Axpona 2024 who is going and why?
I'm going for the third year, but it's definitely a mixed bag.  I have a Bacch4Mac on order so I'll go to the Theoretica room first thing to meet Edgar in person. Room acoustics can ruin an experience.   Last year I heard Vandersteen and Fritz sp...

I don't know much about jazz, so these recommendations are especially helpful.  My wife and I are looking forward to listening to everything listed above.  Thanks very much.

@jon_5912 Thanks for the heads-up on ATC directionality.  I will, of course, take advantage of any opportunity to hear them as they have a great reputation but they are probably not ideal for my application. Regards.

@elliottbnewcombjr Fair question about the theory behind Bacch.   I'll respond as best I can, but the truth is I'm close to being over my head. In a nutshell, Bacch is a specialized time-domain DSP intended to eliminate crosstalk without colorati...

@elliottbnewcombjr Thank you for the detailed response.  I have already adjusted the toe-in to try your "Adjusted Toe-in" method to enhance imaging.  In your comments, however, it occurs to me that you do not make them in the context of a Bacch i...

@audiokinesis Everything you say is consistent with my understanding.  I'll report back in a month or so when I get the Bacch system up and running.

@audiokinesis The tradeoff you describe is very interesting.  I,too, would choose imaging precision, soundstage depth and clarity over soundstage width.  We'll see if Bacch allows me to have my cake and eat it too. Thanks

@asvjerry The truth is I've never done "normal" well in any domain.  Why start now? Seriously, the object of the Bacch system is to eliminate crosstalk, as I understand it.  We will see if it is worth the money.  It's an experiment, but no differ...

Budget is in the neighborhood of $5000; used is fine with me.  The speakers will be placed in front of bookshelves filled with books.  I could place the speakers 18" to 24" from the wall.

@audiokinesis I believe that you are correct.  Here is what the Theoretica web site says: BACCH® 3D Sound will greatly enhance the spatial fidelity of sound reproduction through any loudspeakers. Loudspeakers that have high sound directivity2 wil...

@paradisecom I've actually never heard ML's but will be sure to stop by their room at Axpona.  Thanks for the recommendation. @yogiboy Interestingly, the advice I got on the Spendor user's forum is to look into the Graham Chartwell LS6.  If I sta...

@yogiboy - Sorry, I should have mentioned that my wife graciously  suggested that I use our 23'x16'x8' TV room for the audio system and move the TV to the smaller room where the audio system is now.  That's why I was thinking of the larger Harbeth... 
New Falcon ls3/5a Silvers in the house
By the way, I am considering another system and am looking at Fritz speakers. Can you compare your Carbon 7's to the Falcons in terms of SQ?  Thanks.  
New Falcon ls3/5a Silvers in the house
OP - Here is a completely different option.  I have Spendor SP3/5r2, a 2012 version of the ls3/5a, paired with a Peachtree GaN1 power DAC/ digital amp.  I had my GaN1 modded by Ric Schultz.   The SQ is just wonderful.  Detailed but non-fatiguing, ... 
Newer Blues Artists or Recordings
OP, thanks for starting this thread. @mitch2   +1 for Eric Bibb FWIW, I've been listening lately to Hans Theesink, an acoustic Dutch bluesman now living in Vienna.  His renditions of American blues are very good.  Occasionally his Dutch accent s...
