    Re: TAD Compact Evolution One

    I don't think that these sort of clips can do any product sounding justice. That said, this clip's playback samples sounded metallic when listened through my system.

    Re: TAD Compact Evolution One

    Nice looking speakers but that youtube demo sounded hollow. I would have thought to demo a pair of $29,000 bookshelfs TAD would have taken time and got it right but then again it could be the room or the poor recording gear used.

    Re: TAD Compact Evolution One

    This clip does not do the TAD justice. I heard this speaker at CES. In fact I went back a second time to hear it because I thought it was one of the better monitor speakers at the show.

    I suppose we can think of these youtube videos as serving the purpose of making us aware of the product.

    Mark,

    I think I have misjudged you. You irritated me so much with you attacks on Raidho, my beloved speaker, that I've been ignoring your posts.

    But this is the part that I have misjudged: you call them as you see them, without apology. I sense that you have a depth of knowledge in this hobby. Maybe you have rubbed me the wrong way. But maybe I need to be rubbed.

    We all see read hear things differently. So I welcome your observations and constructive criticisms. I'm glad you are here .
