I'm not 100% sure this is the right place, but...
« on: March 04, 2022, 09:59:56 PM »
We just got home from a trip to visit Danny Richie, Hobbs, Christy et al in Teaxas.  We had a wonderful time.  Danny and Christy are great friends and hosts.

The reason for the trip is to begin a transition of the manufacture of The BUSS-Line to GR.  That is not the reason for this post.

Danny and I spent a day in his make-do listening room.  I have to say that I have never had as much fun in audio or experienced as a total immersive audio experience in my life.

You can see his room/system here:  https://gr-research.com/product/nx-treme/

The system is nothing short of stunning and awe-inspiring!

Equipment list consisted of:

Folsom modified Folsom 7293 chip amps ( with HUGE ) power supplies.  They are insanely good.  Good job, Jeremy!

Speaker cables and power cables are proprietary GR designs.

Interconnects:  no idea.

A Dodd Audio preamp... damn I miss you, Gary!

A Mac mini (2012 : 16GB RAM : 500G SSD the runs on dB Audio Labs proprietary software designed by my friend Darrell McCombs. This combo is what I use, too..  only this one runs on battery power

An OWC hard drive.

DAC is the Dodd Audio DAZc that Gary, Rich Hollis and I all developed.  Runs Redbook and hi-rez

Everything is FireWire connected.  More on this later.

Speakers are NXtremes and dual 3 driver servo subs driven with  Rythmik Audio A370PEQ amplifiers

Cabling is GR Research

I have never, ever heard a presentation with the dynamic impact, depth, faithfulness to timbre and overall musicality that lives in that system.

I was floored. 

Then the fun started.  More, later!  :thumb:

Vinyl Attack Chris is there today...

It will be interesting to see what Chris has to say.  I lie Chris' way of going about things and think that he is above all else, a gentleman.

I do.  They would be a nice addition to the amp farm (8 when counting mono blocks as 1) I have here.  I'm running a pair of your 7297 giant killers in a vertical bi-wire arrangement on my 96dB speakers.  With the choke traps the watts got more muscular.  :thumb:  Great sounding amps for high sensitivity speakers and old ears.  You done good!

You need to ask Folsom.  I have no idea about Charlie's power supplies.

Oh yeah!  His 7293 amp design.  It is just a killer with the right parts.

Good job, Jeremy!!

Well the enclosure is in the works. I believe Danny wants to draw something up for my us (my CAD guy to see).
