I have heard this CD on literally hundreds, maybe thousands, of speakers and know several of the cuts note for note. Many of these speakers had received rave reviews in the audio press.
In a consumer show, you want to sound your best and no expense was spared to make great demonstrations. And into six figures for complete systems! I know what this CD sounds like on my speakers. As I went from room to room I became more and more depressed. Many of the speakers sounded very good to my companions; but none sounded like mine to me. It is a hard sell trying to convince someone that this many well reviewed speakers are all wrong and my sound it correct.
I had fought this uphill battle in Japan a few years earlier; so I was getting discouraged while my potential customers were happily discussing the pros and cons of the speakers we auditioned.
Then we came to the MBL room. They put on my CD and let the s play. I internally breathed a great sigh of relief. Here was the only pair of speakers that sounded like mine. The MBL representative happily spend nearly an hour demonstrating all his CDs to us enthusiastic listeners as other show goers came and went sharing our enthusiasm.
We all agreed, these were the best sounding speakers in the show by far. After a short stop at their number two choice to confirm their earlier impressions , they were excited to hear my speakers. We unpacked the Ohms in their acoustic lab a converted garage. There we tested them with a Watt amplifier to confirm the speakers had survived the flight from NY.
Then we took them into the main living room section of the home. They hooked up the speakers and I auditioned the same CD as we had been hearing all day. The speakers sounded correct to me in the room and the others were amazed. The Ohms sounded closer to the MBLs than any other speaker we had auditioned. Although we never came to a distribution agreement, I felt the experience was well worth the cost in time and money.
And like the original Walshs, that spectacular soundscape moves with you as you leave the center sweet-spot and almost totally collapses when you are in front of one speaker. The controlled directivity of the later generations, called Walsh 2 and beyond, addresses this problem better than any other speaker in the world. So, there you have it. And WHY they were great!

Most pairs of active speakers have one amplifier; the Navis have six. Each speaker has a W watt amplifier that powers its woofer, a W amplifier that powers its midrange driver, and a 40W amplifier that powers its tweeter. All of the amps have been specifically tuned to power the drivers and eliminate clipping and distortion while greatly reducing unwanted noise.
Instead of mixing and matching comparable stereo components, you can plug them into an outlet and hit play. You can also enable a high pass filter, which lets you designate which frequencies should be handled by the treble and woofer.
