Someone convince me to buy a pair of Omega’s
12/31/20 at 02:37:39
 
Hi everyone,
    I have a friend who bought a pair of S3HO’s a few months back as he was looking for another option besides his headphones. After he had them broken in, he invited me over for a listening session and man was I am impressed. I have a ZMA driving Legacy Signature SE speakers. Now don’t get me wrong,I love the sound. But the Omega’s seem to be in another class.

My current room is a tough to tame, square 11x11ish. With the room treatments I have it pretty well sorted. My listening preferences vary from blues to classic rock to female vocals. I’m not that picky.

I am interested in the Super 8 XRS or even something with the 10” drivers I recently saw on the website. I like my bass and wonder if these speakers can reproduce anything close to my Legacy’s. I know the detail will be there for the mid/high. Also, I would like to future proof if I should move to a bigger room in the future.

So in ending, please convince me that I should reach out Louis and discuss my needs and perhaps start the process.

Thanks for your help.
Dave

Hi Lin.

Luckily Louis already had a set of cabinets built so that will save some time. I gave him 2 finishes that I preferred and told him to surprise me and not tell me. I will see it when they arrive. I am sure I won’t be disappointed with whichever it turns out to be.

I am overwhelmed with anticipation as I have heard a set of the S3HO’s at a friends house and was blown away by them.

In closing, Louis said a couple of weeks so I am not sure exactly how long. I am going to assume maybe 4 weeks. Certainly shorter than if the cabinets had to be built.

Thanks
Dave

DAKO,

you made a good decision on the speakers. the SHO's probably would have been overkill in your room. i have a small room like yours, 12x10. i have the omega junior XRS with 6.5" alnico single driver [a bit of a custom order with louis]. with 3 watts, its been really, really good.
