With D’Agostino amplification, a Kronos turntable or dCS Vivaldi as source components (the latter is still my favorite digital player), all hooked up with Kubala-Sosna cables, the Hailey’s sounded delicious on music ranging from a Marcus Miller bass solo on digital to Count Basie’s big band and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade on LP. The lows, from the 7.25” aluminum-cone woofer, had a satisfying “purr” to the sound of double bass.
My photo, BTW, illustrates a problems in covering a show like CES. The lighting in any room is a combination of daylight through the window, a yellow-tinted light from the compact fluorescent bulbs in the room's table lamps, "white" LED lights from local spotlighters, and tungsten lights in the ceiling. Every light source has a different color temperature and if you don't use flashI hate flashsometimes there is no optimal color balance for the image.
