Cool! Nice to hear you had a good show. Not surprising, actually. How many peeps showed up?

The thing I really like about the U103s is the LF and HF.  Very Happy   The HF is stunningly clean for a compression driver hooked to a horn. Probably some voodoo/science going on in the phase plug to get it so crisp. The LF is pleasingly present all the way through its range without getting sloppy and unloaded at the extremes. I'd have a hard time choosing Meyer UPJ or ADRaudio U103 if there were some rider concerns but if it was just me choosing I'd go with U103.

-Bink


It was me choosing and I DID go with the U103s for the Stanford Jazz Festival's 200 seat venue.  The original demo pair has been purchased by the Stanford Jazz Workshop.  The Meyer has the edge when networking as part of a larger, more elaborate system and the BIG edge in name recognition, rider friendliness, and so on.  The U103s as a stand alone pair were a good match for the room and I DIDN'T have to buy additional hardware to pole mount them.

But the U103 just had enough more usable low end without a sub for the mostly acoustic jazz shows in Campbell Recital Hall.  An RE20 on an acoustic bass gave a very satisfying full, not boomy, thump.


And given the layout of that space the U103s have mostly been against the back wall of the stage BEHIND the band.  They're as high as I can safely get them on Ultimate tripod stands and feedback has not been a problem.


Unfortunately that against the DARK wall position has made if difficult to get any good pictures of this setup to post here.

The last Stanford Jazz show for the year is this Saturday with saxophonist Lee Konitz.

Cheers,
"Grampa"

At first glance I was dumbfounded.
The mains(U 103) looked like toys, but I know better now that I have turned them on.
The sub is the cleanest I have heard in a long time.
No shaking or movement is detectable on the outside of the box, unlike the E-V force I use regularly that shakes around like crazy.
I have not experimented with the monitors yet.
I also picked up the Road Test TT24 at the same time.

This particular feature comes in handy at the end of the usual show at 3AM-ish and gear needs to be disassembled and loaded into a truck, van, SUV,...All the energy has been consumed during the show...and 'roadies' are somehow not in sight...

Very Happy That's great spin.  Your marketing department should owe you a beer.

I'm looking forward to hearing your speakers.  You're building up some high expectations and meeting and exceeding them all.

all the best,
