Tyler Decade D1's -- Far and away, my new favorite speaker.  I could go on for hours, but I'll skip that at the moment... 



^^^ heard those (and actually mastered a single on them) in adams @ telegraph's room.

the MTM setup was really reminding me of my duns, and didn't have trouble getting to work.

if i blew a driver, i'd get some tylers (I'm a rhymer, not a fighter)

Tyler runs nearly endless specials on Audiogon... 

and if you were to give him a call and tell him I sent ya', you never know if there's a little 'wiggle room' in there...  No, I don't get kickbacks - But it seems as if I'm always on the phone with someone about these things pre-purchase - and then again after delivery when they're as stoked as I was.  Am.  Stoked as I am. 

Seriously though -- Phreaking phenomenal speakers.  They were a bit of a b**ch to break in, but I'm still as stoked about them as I was --- Geez, it's coming up on two years ago.  Focused like a nearfield, detailed, smooth, crossovers that just disappear.

Is there a reason most mastering houses that specialize in electronic and dance music do not have floor standing full range monitors?

Seems PMC IB1/IB2 the choice for many

Anyone ever heard the Tyler D2's?  I'm wondering how they compare to the D1's.

Holy crap is right!  I just moved into a new place.  Room is about 13.75 W x 31.5 L x 10 H. 

Was looking at the D1's or D2's to fill this room but these may be just the ticket!!

Planning to.  Maybe not that exact pair (if someone else grabs them before me) but I'm pretty much sold on these for my new space.  Thinking I'll pair them with Hypex UcD400 Mono Blocks.

Hell, I'm tempted to get a set of those too. I wonder if they'd need some additional support from a subwoofer. I do a lot of dubstep and I'm not sure those could handle the wub wub.

Well that is not really something you will know until you hear them in your room.  That being said these are spec'd at a 30hz roll off and the D1's are spec'd at 28hz roll off.  Not a huge difference as far as low end extension.  I have also heard from a D1 owner that Tyler spec's his stuff pretty conservatively.   

FWIW there are lots of ME's who run B&W 802's without a sub and those roll off at 39hz. 

30hz or a 28hz roll off is definitely low enough in my opinion.  If it's not for you in your room than add a sub('s) to get the 10 or 8 extra hz to get all the way down to 20hz.  Just make sure the sub doesn't extend all the way down to the brown note.   :o

Assuming that wasn't me, now you've heard it from two.  They do roll off some, but if I put 22Hz through them at ~upper-80's dBSPL (pink), it feels like a semi is idling in the foyer. 

If he had his stuff sitting in stores, he wouldn't be able to keep up with the demand.  Heck, I don't think he keeps up with the demand as it is. 

I don't have any interest in going to a smaller speaker -- These things (the D1's) have spoiled me rotten with vertical coherency I couldn't approach when I was using SCIV's.  But I really want to hear these things...  I think a spring bike trip is in order.  I can pass through Xenia IL on the way and get that elusive "X" city checked off too.   8)
