In Reply to: RE: Elac Adante, $2500 speaker from Andrew Jones posted by milpai on May 14, 2017 at 08:00:57
So called audiophile community mostly consists white van type of customer and mister A. J knows how to cater to that public very well. That's why the mid- fi outlets are so eager to hire him so he can bust the sales for a moment knowing that a circle of cheerleaders present on forums like this will trumpet that junk up to the sky. Yes, I heard that TAD models , big and a small ones , they are really not for human beings but for robotic age neuters , had those dead AE-1 , the kef's , heard Infinity.I have no beef with Mr. Jones , I think he is a competent designer who somehow was promoted to the position of the king of white van speakers by people masturbating at the front of $270 boxes and calling people who don't Trolls.

I had a chance to listen to some very, very good speakers yesterday. If I had 3 jobs and a credit card, I still couldn't afford them. That's the honest truth, "Hi End" speaker cost big money. I remember ordering the B6 Elac's before they even came out, I was so excited because I was getting something that would be close to something I couldn't afford! Andrew Jones made everyone at his price point do better. The UB5 can come very close to "that certain" $1500 speaker and everyone knows it. It's going to be the same with the Adante at $2500. Everyone that makes a speaker in that price range will have to do better or lower their prices. He is out-right changing " the Audiophile Community", perhaps more so than anyone every has! Nothing wrong with that.....
We missed you!!
No,no Roman in sight , but I'd imagine he would have wrote something similar I had a moment of weakness yesterday and foolishly drank one tinny glass of Riesling after a 6 months of total sobriety and just had to stumble on ANOTHER Andrew Jones post to know effect.... I had to follow up today because in essence it is how I feel but I would abstain from posting at all if not that tinny glass.
Warm Regards, W
