Default Re: What ever happened to Adcom?

Jim,

You are cracking me up!!!!!

You blew your political capital on the sailboat being free. If she bought into that - she will never believe you again.

As for speakers, the Kefs were good for their day but look into the Paradigm Signature S8's, the Usher big boys (not too much $$$), MartinLogan's middle of the road speakers, B&Ws, PSB and some of the other more subtle looking speakers that don't make the same physical statement Tympany D's make. The MartinLogan's would be first on my list if I were you as they have that OPEN sound without looking like Bennyhana designed your living room.

I used to love Adcom. The 555's were rock solid unless you decided to bridge them mono. WAY TOO HOT !!! I always wanted several 565's to play with.

Yes, the 555s were definitely rock solid, sold many, happy customers. Plenty of word of mouth with Adcom as well. More sales, more happy people. Well, with there sound, quality, build and small footprint, maybe Bel Canto will be the ones to take charge now.

Thanks Jerry,

Those are some interesting ideas. The Ushers @ $ 12k and Paradigms @ $ 5k are out of my range right now, with a teenage girl wanting a car and college in a couple of years. I could get a couple of very nice sails instead..... The Martin Logans would really interest me - they probably image better than the 104.2's - but the 24 - 30" space needed to the back wall is a deal breaker. Our den is small, only 15'w x 13' deep. There are some B&W CDM7SE's for sale locally on ebay. Should I consider them?

The only B&W dealer in Atlanta is the Apple Store. They only stock the Zeppelin for ipods. So there are not many places where I can audition these speakers here in Atlanta.

Jim
