    Pretty sure he opened up a can with more than 50 worms.

    My apologies. My family had some bad news last Friday and it has been a rough couple of days for my family. Just starting to get caught up now...

    Hi Dave,
    i was wondering what kind of frequency response will the NRT sierra and the upgrade sierra exhibit and how far will it extend?

    Thanks

    There was a long and at least from 1 poster, pretentious thread earlier by, I think, TJHUB, where he was trying out the sierra-1s and something was missing for him as compared to the B&Ws he had been using for a while.

    The way this Sierra upgrade is explained, that it has more upper detail, etc. is this what TJHUB was missing?

    There was a lot of feedback from the forum members, very respectful and helpful, trying to help but not trying to force him to like the Sierra-1s. Many said that the Sierra-1s played music "like it is suppose to be heard" and I was wondering that all the posters that really like the way the current Sierra-1s sound will be turned off by the way the upgraded NrTs will sound

    The Sierra-NrT does have a more extended top end (which I think TJ hub wanted), the change (to me) is more significant in the midrange...cleaner and more revealing.

    That is what surprised me the most since I love the midrange of the Sierra-1.

    Curtis, so even though you were very happy with your Sierra-1s you think you might prefer the NrTs?

    Not might, I do prefer them...for me, it's a better speaker, but also more expensive.

    I am still very happy with my Sierra-1s, but I was amazed at what the new tweeter/crossover brought to the table.

    As I mentioned earlier, the prototype tower was excellent, and I hope Dave can bring that to market, but the NrT surprised me even more.

    edmond,

    TJHUB is a friend of mine who has heard my sierras at my place as well. I have discussed his concerns of the sierra-1's with him in person and you are correct, the top end is what lead him to ultimately go another route. I believe Dave has addressed this with the Nrt upgrade making the highs less veiled and more revealing.

    I have to take Curtis' word on this since I have not heard them yet, but it sounds as if Dave has succeeded. I would like to hear the new sierra-1 Nrt but I am getting the Towers instead
