Gotta say, I felt a bit vindicated reading poor impressions of the TAD's.  I've heard them a couple times now, and thought they sound ok to good ... certainly not stellar like most say after shows.  I've thought they lack refinement and the presentation sounds a bit strained.  And they present a wall of sound image, no ability at all to do pointpoint imaging.

Glad a bunch of you liked The Clue.  As some of you know, I'm the Tri-State dealer for them and obviously think they're great speakers on an absolute level, and just killer at $1K. 

Hi to all I haven't seen for awhile, and btw, I'll likely host a rave later in the summer.

Thanks Barry.  Hope you're well and that we'll catch up sooner rather than later.

Bob,
The Clue was sounding real good last Friday night. Thanks for the bourbon as well!!! BobM liked the Margaritas too!

It would be great if you could join us for the next GTG, whether it be a Syndrome or Rave event!

Cheers  :beer:,

Nice to see you Pete and glad you liked The Clue and the booze.  Those were guava margaritas BobM liked mixed by yours truly.

Would love to attend the next GTG -- hope it works out.

Everything in that room was yummy ... both the Margaritas and the sound. Thanks again Bob. I think if there was a center channel available those Clues might be finding a place in my livingroom TV home theater system.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you'll have to blow your nose.

From Audiophilia.. the show was a while ago.. on why the TAD monitors sounded so bad:
http://www.audiophilia.com/wp/?p=7820

Continuing on, we made it to the TAD (Technical Audio Devices) room where the featured, well touted, two way, stand mounted speaker was on display with Viola electronics. After listening to several selections, Mike and I looked at each other in disbelief. The sound was awful, muddy lacking focus, depth and any three- dimensional quality at all. We called over to discreetly talk to the proprietor and informed him something was terribly wrong and after some careful investigation, it was discovered that a re-wiring had been done several hours prior to our arrival and somehow one channel was using a digital interconnect and the other an analogue interconnect. When the problem was corrected, the room came to life and it went from one of great disappointment to one of true musical excitement. They were extremely thankful for our pointing out that a problem existed and that the solution ended up being so simple and the result so dramatic. Just your Audiophilia staff helping out.
Its cool ndude.
