Well Kingfrog..in Zuki's defense, at least he has listened to both units. Your statement is based on a one way opinion being you haven't really heard the Podium 10's yet have you?. Industry standard is only a perception, what matters is if your content with a products performance.

Good point Donny. I think others have tried to relay that same information, but some just don't seem to 'get it'.

Tried both, liked both. For me, the 8s and 10s are much better for my act and to be perfectly honest, are better sounding than the infamous 'industry standard' - give me a break!

I sold the 450s locally. When I fired up my keys through them, it brought back the same old hollow rock n roll sound.

A few have already told me my voice sounds really clear these days - interesting. Do I please my audience or Kingfrog - hmmmmm, let me think about it.

On the T2, I'll record my arrangements, minus one, as an mp3. I'll stick those in the 800. From mp3 play, I can split the keyboard and play those mp3s just like a style. My left hand chording does not produce a sound, but it recognizes the chords and will allow the harmonizer to work with those chords - very cool. I can also change all my ots/pads for that mp3. If I want to use markers to extend, I can do so. Down the road a bit and when the AX-Synth comes around, I'll establish a jukebox and go out front since I already have this part down. Next I need to experiment with the harmonizer. I'm hoping it allows me to use in a very special way I'm experimenting with. More later.....

Zuki,
I have decided to buy one pair of Podium pro either 8" or 10" speakers.My Requirement is as follows:
1.Power is not important,I need crystal clear sound for my Tyros3.

2.No distortion at higher volumes.

3.Faithful reproduction of bass frequencies even at 30HZ without distortion.

So,as per your opinion,which speakers are ideal either 8" or 10"? Please help.

Thanks,
Sunny

Sunny.

I can't advise on the 30HZ question, as I'm not a sound engineer. I think a few others might chime in here. But to my ears, the 8s offer exceptional bass.

8s:

- Plenty of power and crystal clear.
- Very light and built in power cords
- No handles to carry

10s:

- A bit more power (not too much more from what I can tell). You could always call their technical department.
- But suspect will offer a bit more power and bass.
- Really nice built in handle for carrying
- Separate power cords
- Not too big or heavy to manage, about 1 1/2 times the size and weight of the 8s.

If you can wait a few days, I'll have a T2 in my studio and will be putting them through the 8s test.

At this time, my recommendation would be the 10s, simply for the price difference of $40! Plus, the 10s are in stock and the 8s are on backorder.

Hope this helps.

Zuki I'd like to hear your assesment of an A/B test with both the 8's & 10's when you get a chance...

Hey, Hey,

don't insult the Yugo! It was a fine automobile, made in the country where I am from! OK!

Lol, wouldn't suprise me if the 450's are made at the same factory with the podium's.
