Sheng Ya Means Good Listening

Actually, I have no idea what Sheng Ya means, but at the Sheng Ya showroom, I felt right at home. There were audiophiles hanging out, listening, and, of course, yakking when we walked in. The sales guy was really into what he was doing and immediately began playing these interesting looking speakers made by Consonance.

Wow. I don't think I've ever heard saxophone reproduced better. Was it the horn loaded tweeter? No clue, but I could have camped on that sofa for hours.

A side note to American dealers: This store subtly used what appeared to be decorative embellishments (fieldstone peeking out through plaster) to tune the room, so that it was not just good-sounding but extremely pleasant to be in.
