Anyone else notice Aegir is going up for sale at the same time as Zu omen dirty weekends?
Interesting. I have the Zu Omen Dirty Weekend and I'm very interested in how well the Aegir will pair with them. Looking forward to impressions from future Aegir and Zu owners!

you are totaly worng damping factor is unit misure of controll your speaker
Damping factor is a measurable characteristic, of course. But its effect is theoretical and there is very little evidence indicating that large DF is any better sounding than DF of 50. There is plenty of speculation and insistence, but very little science. And again, amplifier class is independent of DF.

Since Zu speakers have come up, can I ask owners of the Omens how they do for stereo imaging? I'm looking into replacing the nearfield listening setup I use at my desk and want to go high sensitivity/fullrange to work with a low power amp. That basically means either Tekton or Zu, but traditionally large driver speakers don't have great imaging when you get up close and personal with them.

I need 3 things for this setup: high sensitivity, full range bass, excellent close up stereo imaging. What I'm finding is that these attributes are forming a "pick 2" diagram no matter how much research I do.

Ask our resident Tekton specialist @winders.

There is an announcement on the Schiit website that they will be issuing an IPO. It will be a good stock to buy, indeed.

Are we sure that this is not a Jason April Fool's Day joke?

You may want to have a look at Blumenstein Audio Orca 3” full range. Rated efficienty of 91.5 dB, they are reported to work very well (and loud) with the Bottel Head 2W SEX tube amplifier.

[edit] may not have the bass you are looking for with out their Benthic sub.

True news. Jason said the best April Fools joke was one that was not a joke.
I just read that Music Group from founder Uli Behringer bought, after Midas, Klar Teknik, Turbosound and TC Electronics, Schiit Audio to step into the consumer audio market and bridge PRO with consumer audio product where possible.

Interesting! Wonder if operation remains independent.
