回覆 (84): Happy Holidays!
 
 
 
 
 
Greetings Miro,  
 
Thank you very much for the kind message. Very thoughtful of you. I've decided to reply here so that everyone gets a heads up on Soul Sonic latest news. I enjoyed the links you sent immensely. Love the look of your new model "Impact" (very artsy), and the interview with Matej Isakwere was refreshing and well written! Indeed, 2011 was/is a year of turbulence for many of us (full of surprises that's for sure!). On a positive note, the truth is you never know what tomorrow brings, and like my pharmacist always used to say "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"!  
 
With that, I wish you, Jasna, Timi and Nusa (and Zorro the pit bull too!) a wonderful holiday season and the very best that life can bring for the new year. Hope to see you in HK 2012!

Kris, your attention to details is second to none.............. if not insane.  
 
However, talking about amp handles, I don't think you can miss talking about this.

icy, the photo of the Atma-Spheres MA-2 displayed in the VMPS room threw me off. Look closely, the new version is far more attractive. The old CJ handles are replaced by more streamlined and heavy duty handles, like on the old ML. And the metal work for the cover (behind the faceplate) is now fully curved inwards to the top. Absolute feast for the eyes!  
 
old version......

Miro, [em]3? Great band! I agree European jazz is the new "cool", but knowing the taste of Americans, the material my be too moody for most. Many of them are still listening to Kenny G and Nat King Cole...zzzzzzz

Hi Kris,  
the HK presentation of my speakers is something I`m seriously working on.  
 
The food in Flamingo is good, except pancakes!  
 
In the demo I played some Melody Gardot, Michael Wollny, Eva Kruse, Eric Schaefer - [em] 3 (phenomenal German Jazz trio!), Eligh (instrumental techno), Yim Hok Man, soundtrack from The American Beauty, Brian Bromberg, Cyro Baptista, Mari Nakamoto, Avishai Cohen, some dynamic classics, some jazz fusion tracks I got from one of the visitors and other stuff.  
 
I was to late to borrow some Atma-Spheres, but Ralph Karsten was nice enough and showed interest in my speakers, perhaps next time I`ll use his amps.

Kris,  
 
We were talking about this during our review meeting this morning.  
 
----  
yWires teams with VMPS Audio and Atma-Sphere Music Systems for Napua Davoy Live/Playback Event @ CES  
 
LOS ANGELES, California - September 16, 2010 - WyWires, cult producer of hand-made high-end audio interfaces, announces a partnership as the exclusive cable interface for VMPS Loudspeakers and Atma-Sphere Amplifiers during THE SHOW/CES, January 6th through 9th, 2011.  
"We are honored to have been invited by Brian Cheney of VMPS to be the exclusive interface for THE SHOW at the upcoming CES. We'll be providing all interconnects, speaker cables and power cords for Napua Davoy's live vs. recorded performance," says Alex Sventitsky, Founder and Chief Engineer of WyWires, LLC.  
 
Jazz singer and vocalist Napua Davoy is the featured performer with an ensemble including sax, flute, clarinet, acoustic bass, grand piano, latin percussion, classical percussion, bass drum, and full drumkit. The live-vs-recorded demonstration intends to prove that the best modern high-end gear can generate sound virtually indistinguishable from live. The demo is scheduled daily at 1 pm in the Virginia Ballroom 1, at the Flamingo in Las Vegas.  
Per Sventitsky, "when Brian approached me, I thought it was the ultimate opportunity to prove to audiophiles and stakeholders in the industry what our mission is - to deliver sound as close to the live performance as possible, whether studio or on stage. It's the reason I started this company and the care that goes into every single cable we build. I cannot wait to put WyWires engineering into this project."  
This is the 3rd year in a row that VMPS has brought the live-vs-recorded demo to CES.  
 
ABOUT WYWIRES  
WyWires' product line is a truly revolutionary departure from industry norms - even for cables in stratospheric price ranges.  
The company produces a full line of cables - interconnects, phono, CD and speaker cables, and power cords - all with WyWires hand-crafted and proprietary wire formula.  
Line level interconnect cables come in two "flavors" - Honey and Hot Sauce. Honey smoothes the rough edges and reduces annoying sibilance; Hot Sauce produces stronger textures and leading edges - perfect for vintage tube gear.  
All WyWires products provide greater retrieval of musical detail, a heightened sense of realism and eliminate listening fatigue with a natural, organic presentation.  
WyWires cables have virtually no shielding, and are made with a proprietary Litz wire formula - not pre-manufactured wire made in China. All components are made in the USA, Canada or the EU - and cable crafting is done locally in Los Angeles. Each cable is tested before it goes out to the customer and no sale is made until a consultation session is completed. The company offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee.  
WyWires products are available for purchase on a factory direct basis as a global distributor/dealer network is being built. Please visit http://www.wywires.com for more information about the company and its products. For information about VMPS and its products, please visit http://www.vmpsaudio.com

Thanks Kris!  
 
Yes, that`s my daughter Nusa in the back, on her badge it says "Music Playback", which means she was our official DJ, he he.  
 
The box at the back of the speaker is an outboard crossover, the parts were too big to fit them anywhere in the speaker.  
 
On the left you see two big Duelund caps (copper cast foil), followed by a Mundorf foil coil, on the right side there is a woofer coil, also a Mundorf foil type, but of the transformer variety, because it has very low internal resistance. Speaker terminals are WBT silver and all speaker wiring inside is soft tempered silver.  
 
There more photos on the AC forum, someone said (at the bottom of the page):  
Holy shit man! Those open baffle speakers are crazier than anything I saw at RMAF! Those crossovers are incredible.

This morning I came back from Las Vegas, it took us almost 24 hours (11 hours flight, 2 hours driving the car and waiting inbetween).  
 
The WAVAC guys were really kind (Jonathan the US distributor and the whole WAVAC team), they lend us their preamp and two monos, after one of the US dealers asked how would my speakers perform with the WAVACs. I also used Aspen Amplifiers NAKSA for the bass, more on that here, see this Canadian site.  
 
Kris, I don`t like ties, especially "tightly bound" ones, ha ha...  
 
I`ll return later

> SoulSonic feel that boxed speakers pressurize the listening room in an unnatural manner that their open dipole construction avoids.  
 
Miro,  
I'm in total agreement with you. And the ribbon’s transparency and extension at the upper registers are peerless.  
Can’t make it to CES this year. May be next year.  
 
Just finished watching Nikita Mikhalkov’s 12 Angry Men. It’s a brilliant movie. Will set aside a copy for your collection along with Emir Kusturica’s box set.

Forgive me for such shot notice, in case you're free to visit, the Hong Kong high-end show is on for the month of August. Another show may be happening along the same calender is the Guangzhou High end show, one of the grandest in the world. I almost stepped on Robert Harley and Jon Valin one time in a very packed Goldmund room there. In any case, a great opportunity to see what's happening in the industry on this side of the globe. And of course, be wonderful finally get to meet you in person!

Morning gents,  
 
 
Like the 2004 US Olympic basketball team, another reminder on how extreme arrogance often results in premature ejaculation, blindness and thinking disorder. Pretty sure it had to be one of highlights for mankind watching players from the "dream team" proudly displaying their colorful tattoos (average annual income of almost 10 mil US each), going to a foreign country, and force fed their dicks into less "blessed" players from terrorists nations like Argentina and Croatia. In fact, how dare you to put the US players in the same housing accommodations with the rest of the world at Olympic village. Are you fucking blind? Don't you watch US television? Don't you know that the "dreamers" only do 6 star hotels with all the trimmings? And make damn sure the high-priced booties are on stand-by at all times, like their shinny egos, their dicks need nonstop polishing too. Otherwise, they'll just rape (Oops...sorry Koby!). In any case, Argentina got the gold that year, Italy won the Silver and the "dream team" went home celebrating their bronze.  
 
The point is the England football team this year much like a low budget replay of all that. Kh is right, they had a really lucky break last night and saved themselves from another public humiliation. The Slovenian team gave incredible effort from start at this year's world cup and deserves every bit of honor. A champion in the making!

Just got this from two English friends that live near me:  
 
 
Legal guardian  
 
A seven year old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.  
The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.  
 
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.  
 
After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.  
 
After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the England Football Team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

No need to be devastated.  
Though the result is not perfect you still get one point and top the group. Leading two nil and managed only a draw is tough to swallow. Perhaps yours is still a young team and lacking that experience to keep the lead.

Oh man, I`m devastated,  
 
Slovenia : USA = 2:2  
 
The judges ignored the first rough elbow attack on our player, to redeem themself, they repealed the last US goal, well..., whatever, they cannot mess with us for free.  
 
Before the match, Americans asked themself, where the f... is Slovenia?  
Our coach said: "Ask the Russians" and now I hope they have learned for good and I believe no one will confuse Slovenia with Slovakia anymore.  
 
Americans also made up the following joke:  
 
While walking through Ljubljana, our capitol city, they noticed there are almost no citizens to be seen in the streets, how come?  
The answer: half of the Slovenians are busy playing for the Slovenian national football team. :-)  
 
Peace to USA, China, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Israel, peace to Arabs, peace to everyone...

But we we will have a really tough time confronting the Brits...  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
 
The Brits are not that difficult to beat. Judging from their first match performance they are much weaker than we expected. Their goalkeeper is a joke, the central defenders are sluggish, their attacks inefficient and they created only few chances. The only threat is Rooney which can easily be contained. So the chance is high that you get points from them.
