CR-1s - Four Days Away . . .
 
OK, the CR-1s arrive in four days if all goes well. I know we've all seen these threads before, but I can barely contain my excitement. Sold the BW 802Ds at asking price and the buyer (who drove overnight with some buddies) picked them up today. That leaves this void on either side of the system, just waiting to be filled with a little package of dynamite. I don't think the new speaker cables will be here then, but we'll still be able to get tunes out of them.

Questions include how the bass will do in my room, distance from the side and rear wall (where I'm somewhat limited) and seating distance. I think I'll be able to miss a bit on each of those variables and still get some great sound out of them.

I reserve the right to come back here and ask questions, and promise a full report when the time is right.

Thanks in advance.

Weirdcuba, HUGE congrats!! The TAD CR1s are one of my dream speakers. Of course, we need a full report and lots of pics. :)

There are very few speakers that interest me, this is one, so i'm going to pay attention to your thread.

One of my favorites. ...
Congratulations!

Ah man Weirdcuba that is exciting. I love these speakers but couldn't imagine actually owning a pair. Do the matching stands come with the CR-1's?

Weirdcuba 12-03-2015 08:36 PM

Well, they sort of come with them, but they're separately priced and have a separate item number, etc. Thus, i guess technically they are separate, but in fact, you really need them both. I think tad does it to decrease the msrp on the speakers, but it seems a bit thin to charge this much for a speaker and then charge extra for a necessary part. Kind of like paying for a steering wheel with a Benz if you ask me, but we'll see.

I suppose one might build your own stands, but it just doesn't seem realistic at this level.

Well, UPS says it should happen today. I've warned the family to spend the evening elsewhere. They gladly accepted.
