To a background of controversy swirling about the Internet, Talon Audio showed their wares at the St. Tropez. Note the reference Talon Khoruses ($14,000) and Roc subwoofers ($4,000) in a maple finish. Electronics featured all Jeff Rowland and Theta Digital, cabling by way of Kimber Select. This was without question a most visually attractive room, with its walls hung with huge photos of the great outdoors. Unfortunately, the sound was less than good. Because I chose this speaker as my new reference, I really wanted to see it shine. Moral: how difficult it is to achieve a satisfactory result in a poor acoustic setting in less than one week.
