Yesterday evening we had a great listening session with the Norwegian gang which I want to share with you.
In a previous post I wrote already that this open baffle speaker with the many drivers perfectly represents what the ETF is all about.
This speaker was made just for the ETF. It looks totally outlandish when you first see it but it's sheer beauty simply draws you in.
Initial sounds heard from this speaker were already very impressive and there is just something right about them.
As is always happening during the ETF they kept working on them and improved them step by step.
They can swap out the high frequency section as seen here
But they went back to that white horn from the beginning and tamed it.
After the recording of the live concert Bjorn brought his reel to reel into the this room and it got hooked up to replay what was recorded just an hour before.
This was simply amazing. I am not easily impressed when it comes to audio stuff. But I was present when the recording was made and hearing it played back shortly afterwards really tells the truth. This had all the dynamics and ambience which I heard at the concert. And it was very natural and transparent:
It was such a great experience and everybody in the room was mesmerised:
This set up is really amazing. So great to see things like that made with such a passion and then expertly set up improved and brought to such a high level in just one day.
This session was my personal highlight at the ETF so far. Thanks to Torbjorn for bringing this speaker and his Norwegian fellows to set up such a system and of course to Bjorn for such this beautiful recording.
Keep up this spirit guys!
