· MY Speakers were demo'd at the Chester Group NY Audio Show!
posted Nov 14, 2017
I just wanted to comment on the Ohm Acoustics room at the New York Audio Show last weekend. I thought John Strohbeen at Ohm put together a really good sounding system for about $4500, a fraction of what most other rooms were displaying. The Ohm Walsh 2000s (which I have owned since 2009) were fed by an Outlaw Audio 2160 stereo receiver ($800), an older Oppo universal player (~$200), and a Blue Sound Node 2 Streamer ($500). I thought the system sounded great (yes, I am biased). Good extension in the bass and treble, excellent clarity and detail, Goldilocks trnasients, and a wonderful holographic soundstage. The real surprise was the dynamic slam offered by this modest rig. On both of my visits to this room, showgoers sat quietly(!) and listened, always a good sign. Was there better sound at the show? Sure, but only from systems with price tags orders of magnitude higher.
What are Goldilocks transients? Illegals with blond hair?

HA! Goldilocks is a way of saying "just right", not too hot, not too cold. For audio, Goldilocks transients are present, but not overbearing.
