In fact, the higher the SPLs, the more exciting it became, with no sonic penalty to pay. It costs a grand total of $6,850—cheap by high-end standards for this kind of experience, and that’s because every dollar spent buys you performance, not visual grace.
If you’re looking for a system to hide behind black cloth, don’t buy one until you listen to this one. If you can deal with relatively large, not particularly attractive black boxes in a more conventional home setting, you ought to have a listen, too. My Eve won’t let me keep the GTC77 system in our living room, but she’s as eager as I am to audition one of Adam’s living-room-friendly ones as soon as possible. If it performs as well as this one did, it will be here to stay.
