Yes, the sound of the TAD’s was easily among the top 5 of the show and though this is a pricey system, it will not come even close to the uber-pricey ones. And if you think it’s the Reference One I am referring to, think again as what amazed me the most was the CR which managed to fill all that space with ease. Actually there is not much more one could ask from a system. Coherence, clarity, speed, dynamics and most of all that sense of fatigue-less reproduction with all music genres. Another Jones, Tom and not Andrew sang “Dimming of the Day” so I guess beautiful music comes with the last name?
Naturally the bigger speakers gave a complete meaning to the words full range but I would happily take the Compact Reference speakers back with me.
