After emailing back and forth with Bob about his "baby," I pulled the trigger last night. It came down to a pair of the Teresonic Ingenium, for which I had all but written the check, or the HR-1. I doubt I would be unhappy either way, but I also believe I chose wisely. Lord knows my wallet thinks so.


@PR

Not enought speakers in your house already with the ERR sextet?   Smiley

Exactly what my girlfriend said: "I think you need more speakers Sweetheart." NOT! Wink

Anyway, my plan is to put one ERR set in the master bedroom, and depending on how good the HR-1s are with phantom center channel [trying it with the ERRs left me a little flat, so I am not super optimistic], I would give a second set to my eldest daughter who just bought her first house.

Greg, there's a good chance the HR-1 will work better than the ERR in that scenario due to the more conventional sonic presentation aspect created by the front-firing drivers.

The HR-1 does do a locked in center image even when sitting way off axis. I am in the process of trying to get together a surround set up consisting of only 4 HR-1's using phantom center and if the processor will do it distributing the subwoofer over the 4 speakers "phantom sub?". The deep bass impact the HR-1 has (2 of them) at least in my rooms is so good that four of them should be explosive. I'm not a big "blowem up" type movie viewer but I do appreciate the big impact sounds from effects in various movie genre when needed to convey realism and an immersive experience.

Greg, I look forward to your impressions of HR-1. Let us know when they are on the way. I'll gladly walk you through breakin period. This will be fun.

Lon and Chris, that makes sense, and it is one of the things I wondered about. I didn't post about it here, but I had a pair of servo subs built using Rhythmik Audio woofers and power amps in custom enclosures designed to mate and match the ERRs. Fast, deep, clean. I am not an LFE addict, but good LFE can enhance the cinematic experience. Try out the Inception BluRay with a good sub, or the Titanic re-release. Amazing. And my ERRs were not lacking in the bass. But when I also connected one of the subs to the regular outputs of the Ultra, the lower octave opened up beautifully. It is now much harder for me to listen to the ERRs without the sub, without feeling like I am missing something. That is especially true on good organ works, and some of the Stanley Clarke and Renaud Garcia-Fons. They sound better with a properly matched sub.
