          Good morning, here is a sneek preview of a stunning combination of black oak Majestic G7-3C with ‘Claret Red’ which is ready for crating to go to the California audio show this month.
          Hope it stirs the imagination of how materials and finishes can really make a beautiful addition to one’s decor.

                After thought and apology:
                Sorry it was not my intention to include retail prices or give any impression of ‘sales’ here – I was too late to edit and I had just pasted in the information without checking carefully enough. I just wanted to give an idea of what is around driving and supporting the SL speakers!

                — UPDATE — ROOM UPGRADE !!!!!!

                Happy to report Sound Lab has moved to first floor:
                Lobby Gold Ballroom.

                This is a large room (39′ x 21′) with 11′ ceilings so the G8-5Cs (and G7-3Cs) have breathing room.
                On set up the day before I’d like to try a set up having both models along the length of the room (2 systems) so we may all have a chance for comparison. Width of the room is 21ft, so it’s similar to a residential layout of a room with a rear wall rather than just having an huge long concert hall with speakers at one end.
                That’s my idea anyway, hope it works out and look forward to seeing you if you can join!
                Todd will be in the room with his wonderful recordings (MA Recordings) and Jose (Dr. Vinyl) with his wonderful selection of music, vinyl and I believe JMF amplifier and also perhaps AGD… I’ll add details and confirm as I can.

                  Chris: I am very interested in the G8-5C proportions are you able to post some pictures of these?

                      Here’s a first look at the first built ‘in-progree’ G8-5C … just being tested today by Brett.

                        This won’t give you so much of an idea except to see interesting ‘in progress’ build of the G8-5C – the frames have just been delivered by their wood worker: photo attached.
                        Another photo of when I visited the wood shop last year just for interest.

                          Dodgealum, the speakers in production now for the show include the first models made of G8-5C, so I don’t have photos yet.
                          The best I can do is to attach photos of
                          1) G9-5C which I just delivered in Japan 2 months ago … this customer requested only grille fabric (black) on the reverse, which is why you see the ‘naked’ front. The G8 is just 12″ taller, no other difference.
                          In the 2nd photo I am in front of the speaker and I am 5’9″.

                          2) G7-5C which I had at the Dallas show. And this model is 12″ shorter than the G8. The grille for this is wedgewood and wood is walnut.

                          The actual heights and widths are on my website. There is a short video sample of the G7-5C if you go to the dealer’s menu and click on the ‘sound sample’ link.

                          For the G8-5C model you are demoing in July, what is the wood finish and the fabric styling, going off the choices offered on the soundlabelectrostat.com build page?

                              Good morning, the Baltic color is actually quite difficult to photograph, and this is the best I could do. It is a complex but beautiful color and I believe one would describe this as having a ‘tweed’ texture.

                                I will bring wood samples and material samples to the show so that you can actually see them and get a very good idea.
                                These are some photos to give you an idea.
                                There are so very many beautiful options available … some of the materials have been discontinued but most are still available. Of course there is also the standard black ‘spandex’ type of material.

                                  The G8-5C I am trying a combination I have never tried before actually. I believe it will be quite stunning, although it may not be for everyone.
                                  Wood is maple and the fabric is Baltic. I can take a photo of the actual material in the morning (I just woke up briefly and saw the messages…and I live in Japan)
                                  I actually have one more ordered which has black painted oak with the same grille which may or may not ship to Japan.

                                  The TakeT site, whose link Chris posted, has a list and links to their global resellers. The stateside distributor is http://www.atelier13-usa.com.
                                  Current price of the TAKET LIVE is $1255/pair.

                                        Hello Ernest…I have access and for sure the exchange rate is very very much in your favor for buying from Japan (like about 30~40% better than just a couple of years ago because the ¥ is virtually dying)
                                        Let me know if I can help you in some way. Just back to sleep for now (!)

                                        Oh I see Chris, the reason that I asked is because I want to experiment with an AMT Super Tweeter with my 745s. Do you know what kind of super tweeters he had? Did you ever listen to them?

                                            He used a Fidelix AH-120K (made in Japan)
                                            which is not made anymore.

                                            The speaker itself is made by TakeT called BatPro (!)

                                            The new replacement I found and just for interest you might enjoy their English tranlation website (its Japanese)

                                            Its called TAKET-LIVE and operates 20khz-100khz

                                              I’ve asked him to let me know – wuill report later.
                                              I didn’t actually ever listen to them myself.
                                              I believe they operate over 15khz and I can’t hear anything that high anymore (if I ever could?) I am not so sure!

                                                    You are on the right track. I have owned various Quad models myself. As good as Quads sound, Soundlabs are even better.

                                                        Hi All, to explain the latest Soundlab configurations-think of the speakers as a spreadsheet. You have columns and rows. My Majestic 745 ha 7 columns and 13 rows. An 8 foot soundlab will have 15 rows and a 9 ft speaker will have 17 rows. As close as I can tell there are now 7 columns, 6 columns, 5 columns, and 3 columns. Chris, can you confirm?

                                                            Hi Sliderule,

                                                            – The maximum width Roger can make is 7 cells. (7 columns)
                                                            – 6 is possible but I did not include on my website … the matrix gets too large so there had to be some trimming.
                                                            (incidentally the original 645 had only 6 cells – but the ‘6’ is referring to height and nothing to do with cells)

                                                            -5, 4 and 3 cell widths are available.
                                                            The website shows effectively what is available.

                                                            I hope I’m not making things difficult to understand!

                                                          I’m a long time owner of several pairs of Quads (57s, 2805 and 2905s currently). I’m exploring getting a pair of Soundlabs. I think I have the room to fit the larger models, but of course the installation gets to be challenging. Any recommendations? I’m in the Bay Area. Thanks.

                                                              I just made a delivery of G9-5C in Japan – he was replacing his Quads.
                                                              Last year I took a demo pair of G7-4C – you can see those and his quads in one photo.
                                                              G7-4C have 1,328 sq in radiating area. He loved them and of course much more than his quads (so much more natural)
                                                              He decided on even larger model because his ceiling is very tall and the room opens up into the kitchen. So he decided on G9-5C which have 2,240 sq in radiating area.
                                                              Please ask if you have any questions!

                                                                      1. Frame: wood (M), furniture grade (A) and tubular steel (U)
                                                                      2. Radiation angle: 45 or 90 degrees
                                                                      3. Height of panel
                                                                      4. Number of “cells” across. Standard configuration is seven across. There are now three, four and five cell versions.

                                                                      In answer to your question, a G9-5C is a foot taller and somewhat narrower than what is effectively a G8-7C. The new Japanese website has an illustration that might help:

                                                                          – radiation angle – only for 7 cell width models

                                                                            I’m an old timer having purchased my U-790s (originally U-1PX) in 2005. The line has certainly grown since then! That makes sense that the 90 degree model requires a wider cell structure. Years ago, I visited the Utah facility and watched Brett do some assembly. I had previous met Roger and Connie at a Chicago Audio Society meeting when the M945 was introduced.

                                                                            My backplates are currently in Gunnison for some minor repair and the bypassing of HF control with Ohmite resistors. I also asked about bypassing the mid control since I never change from flat.

                                                                            What got me started was hearing Dayton-Wright XG-8s at former TAS reviewer JWC’s in 1976 and instantly became an enthusiast. Also use Acoustat 1+1s in the home theatre system.

As you probably know Brett is still the one making all the panels and production for the speakers. Great guy and dedicated to carry the legacy forward. He will be in Oakland with me this July for the first two days of the show I believe.

                                                                          • #1966

                                                                              I have been working with SL to make a move to give more information on the models that also refer to width in the model name (of which there are many but most people just don’t know about)
                                                                              In my way of describing the models
                                                                              Using G9-5C as an example:
                                                                              G = Full Range
                                                                              9 = almost 9′ (same as 945 model)
                                                                              5C = number of cells across (945, 845, 745 on old website have 7 cells … but it gets confusing because 645 has 6 cells and 545 has 4 cells)
                                                                              Note; all cell widths are the same!

                                                                              So for reference the ‘standard’ 845 Majestic I would refer to as:
                                                                              G8-7C with Majestic trim
                                                                              You could also choose a more narrow model:
                                                                              G8-5C

                                                                              Note: 45 refers only to the dispersion angle (45 & 90 degree are available on widest models)
                                                                              Majestic actually refers only to the wood frame style

                                                                              Please ask any questions
                                                                              (another note – ALL electronics are exactly same on all models)
                                                                              If you wish, contact me directly from the website, happy to discuss.

You are welcome to visit and decide for yourself. Additionally, I have a 2nd residence in the wine country with the larger Sound Labs if you wish to hear them too.

                                                                                              the smallest speaker is rated around 86db.

                                                                                              NOTE: because the Sound Lab are much taller than QUAD, you will get much more energy coming over your table and to your sitting position in the room – a big improvement I think in my opinion.

It opens into the kitchen area. The 2805s are spaced fairly widely apart. Are SLs better in a long narrow room or a more squarish larger room?

                                                                                              • #1992

Point source sound loud close to the speaker (sorry if I am telling u something u already know)… and volume decreases quickly as you move away, and very much so with anything blocking the speaker source, but with SL even if you walk right up to the speaker, it is not loud and if you walk away, the volume is basically the same from almost anywhere in your room … even when something might be blocking the lower parts of the speaker because it is so tall… do I make sense?

                                                                                                • #1991

                                                                                                    If you had to choose which room to put Sound Lab, you may enjoy the listening and sound from a larger room with the SL having more space and you could think of getting the 7 cell (widest) versions which have the benefit of slightly better lower frequency response. (wider panels reduces bass cancellation but they all sound excellent) If you were to think of the narrow room, then a more narrow SL would fit better (visually) and because they are tall will certainly sound better than the shorter Quad (in my opinion) – you may start with one (for whichever room) and I suspect you might fall in love with them and want for both rooms 🙂

I tried it the other way. My larger 2905s in the larger room. The 2805s in the long narrow room. That didn’t sound as good. The larger 2905s really cone to life in the long narrow dining room. Go figure!

I thought for sure I would want to bypass the controls but actually I have found it works wonderfully well using just my Berning amps to drive both the full range and bass panel wired in parallel (which is how Roger has them intended) Note the bass panels are additional energy for the room…the full range panels function normally with the full signal.

                                                                                                              The room is of course so important.

                                                                                                              I suspect your long narrow room may ‘load’ music energy better and especially so with the larger quads so they could ‘see’ above the table height etc.
                                                                                                              But in the big room- especially opening to a kitchen, larger tall SL with 45 degree dispersion would definitely help bring that room to life. I am sure.

I’m thinking the long narrow dining room might be the ideal room for a pair of the larger Soundlabs that will go where tge 2905s are set up now. Since it’s out of the way, it’s less jarring visually. What’s the turnaround time on a custom order ?

They have a warmer tone, which I suspect comes from the fact that they are much smaller in terms of size, and the acoustic center of the speaker is below a typical seated listener. The larger room has a lot of absorbing material (two large overstuffed sofas, carpeting etc.), which helps. The 2905s can sound a bit overbearing with the “wrong” electronics, and they sound much better with tubes. I use two very large Audio Research Ref 210 tube amps with the 2905, which use 8 KT 120 tubes per channel. That really makes the larger 2905s sing.

I ask because over the past few decades I’ve owned Quads, I have had to get the panels repaired. My 2905s had to be repaired a few years back as the glue used to hold the panels from the Chinese factory were defective. Do SLs need to go back to the factory for panel repair?

Since 2006-ish Sound Lab introduced new generation of extremely rugged, durable panels and with the newest super glues – basically the panels are extremely reliable. Many Quad owners must have repair work after few years because they are rather susceptible to breakdown (I mean no disrespect).
                                                                                                                                New Sound Lab panels especially since after 2012 really do not require repair – the insulation is excellent. Taken care of they will last for years and years – one of my pairs are 13 yrs and no problem. Should there be an accident and need repair, it is best to send back to Utah. They are all custom made, made by experienced family staff and hand crafted, not mass produced at all. Extremely easy to talk to and to receive support from Sound Lab.

                                                                                                                                It comes down to personal opinion of course, but I would suggest your room is on the narrow side and would definitely benefit from a more narrow version than the standard 7 cell width. (especially visually to not block your entire back window) If your ceiling are 10′ then certainly G9 or G8 model will fit. I personally recommend the Majestic style because the Audiophile would trim is an extra 2.5″ tall and you may regret that under your 10′ ceiling.

In my 2905, dispersion is dealt with electronically through the delay line circuitry, following the same design pioneered by Peter Walker with the ESL 63. In Soundlab, the curvature of the speaker decides the dispersion, right?

But it is important to note that the curvature appearance of SL does not mean the cells are curved… the cells are flat and are angled at the joining points of each cell in order to achieve the ‘curved’ dispersion. There are important reasons for all this – I can attach information if you wish. But the bottom line is the SL (from what I have heard and other Quad people have told me) is that SL sound very natural and a lot of that has to do with the way in which Roger has designed them to disperse.

                                                                                                                                This might be a new way of announcing, I hope no one minds.

                                                                                                                                I will have 2 Sound Lab models at the California audio show July 19th-21st showing in the Parlor Suite 1107 (we should have plenty of room).
                                                                                                                                Models are (and note both are brand new):
                                                                                                                                G7-3C (narrow model) & G8-5C (a slightly narrow version of what you might know as the standard 845 which has 7 cells)
                                                                                                                                Both are Majestic style trim.

                                                                                                                                OFFER IS: Should there be anyone just considering a purchase, I will reimburse anyone up to $2,000 for travel/lodging expenses if you would like to come and see/hear and purchase.

                                                                                                                                For the models showing, I will offer current pricing and reimburse against that. (current pricing is in effect until the start of show)

                                                                                                                                Price Increase:
                                                                                                                                Please note NEW prices will be announced at the show.If anyone wishes to make a new order, new pricing will apply and I will reimburse against the new price.

                                                                                                                                Rather than overloading this topic with details, I will wait to hear your questions if there any.
