    That might be the most adorable speaker I have ever seen.

    Looking forward to seeing and hearing it in person. Travel safe Mike.

    Mike, I hope you guys have a great show, and say "Hi" to Florian for me. It was fun, informative, and very interesting to meet him last year.

    The new Picolo looks like quite the speaker! Cheers.

    Re: Clarisys - Axpona 2024

    Mike,

    What room will the Picolo be in? I have a friend attending for one day and I don't want him to miss that room.

    It would be great if you would list what room each Clarisys model will be in. My apologies if you already did that and I missed it.

    The Piccolo is without a doubt one of the most beautiful speakers I've ever seen in photos. Just breathtaking. I can see designing a listening room around them. Can't wait to see (and hear) them in person!

    I like the color. It helps the speakers disappear. I might even vote for a lighter, sky blue.

    Re: Clarisys - Axpona 2024

    The cat room on either pair of speakers was very good.
    when they played the new picolo I was greeted by moving air and great sound
    I think this size speaker can really fill up most rooms people have. The looks are where art meets sound with both being great.
    a few speakers fill this idea and Mike seems to know this ahead and obtains selling them.
    MBL for one.
    It was amazing how at this size room and back 6 feet I still felt impact and the speed of rim shots with power and details.
    This room was a big stand out for me.
    both digital and analog were very musical

    Re: Clarisys - Axpona 2024

    Sounds as good as it looks really fast and dynamic
    can’t wait to hear them again and really appreciate them.
    they reminded me of the famous quad many love.
    I’ve heard the quads many times even stacks
    what these are aside of looking spectacular is a far more dynamic sound. They really are special
    I really think anyone who hears them will be shocked in many ways.

    Re: Clarisys - Axpona 2024

    Sunday afternoon I had just walked into the big Clarisys/Convergent Audio Technologies room (Nirvana C?), there were two guys on their hands and knees switching cables on some amps. When the music started again it filled the room. The sound was transparent and had scale and dynamics that were exceptional. The tonal density was wonderful from bottom to top. This was one of the rooms I experienced at the AXPONA 2024 that spoke to me "come sit down, relax and enjoy."

    I went to the room to hear the Clarisys Auditorium Plus (I had previously not seen or heard it in person). If the accent lights on the floor were not spotlighting the diminutive Piccolo I could have been fooled into thinking this might be the Auditorium Plus looming over it. I still haven't heard that big one first hand but boy-oh-boy that little one is a winner no matter how you slice it; bravo!

    I left Monday. Had to walk on the interstate to O’Hare with other pilots, Mothers carrying crying babies and more for over 45 minutes. It was like an apocalypse.

    I'm one who always goes to the airport early if there is time, having spent many years traveling. I'd rather sit in the airport and read, where my options are better, than wait in the hotel. Fortunately I got there ~15 minutes earlier than the protesters did. I just get up earlier than they do. Our flight to Ft. Myers was fully booked, but we took off with at least 1/3 empty seats. Knuckleheads is the kindest word I can muster.

    Yes, and it does. Room costs (we had 3 rooms, including a large ballroom), materials, marketing, brochures, banners, all the staff, shipping, meals, hotel rooms, flights, etc. Figure on $40k.

    Re: Clarisys - Axpona 2024

    The Clarisys Audio Piccolo looks interesting as a Magnepan LRS+ replacement for my office. What would be the smallest room the Piccolo can fit into? I love the LRS+ and it works great in my small, treated room, but I know I can get better but want to stay with an open baffle design.

    I was considering the Diptyque audio - Hauts-parleurs plans Haute-Fidelite - DP 115 but now this Picolo speaker came into my radar.
