        Are the DUS cabs that you carry from the same chinese company with the line arrays? If so, do you have access to the line arrays?

            Maybe.



            I believe your referenced website link is obsolete (from a number of years back).



            I believe here is Dus' current website:



            http://dusaudio.de/eindex.html



            I'm not knowledgable about the Dus line array models. My employee Cliff owns and has been operating a Dus tower speaker system for a couple of years. Cliff's system is comprised of 4ea. of the Dus DX-5.6:

            And 4 ea. of the Dus DSW-900 subs:



            http://dusaudio.de/Products/SPEAKERS/DSW_Series/



            Here's a couple pictures of Cliff's Dus tower rig:

            http://www.audiopile.net/Technical_L..._IN_USE_10.jpg



            Cliff does have a lot of experience with this tower system... probably done 50 - 100 shows with it so-far. I believe tomorrow night Cliff is performing some swanky NYE gig in McCall ID with this rig.



            I've been running the X series (that we now stock) for a couple of years doing mostly speakers on sticks and monitor duty. I recently started importing Dus here in the US... I believe my company is the sole US importer of the Dus products. The Dus X series I understand to be what Dus considers their "entry level" models... Dus offered/suggested to start me off with the X series... see how I do with those, and go from there.

                Very interesting. Can you make any comparisons of sound? Better, worse or equal to say JRX?

                            Andy has some samples of the X models, and I believe he's made some comparisons. I'll leave the sound comparison judgments & opinions to others.



                            I've mixed Cliff's band while they were using his tower rig, and I say that system is difficult to compare to anything I've worked with in the past. Those types of tower systems (there's others on the market as well) seem to be a critter all unto their own. Specifically striking is how they perform in a lively room, being: "amazing". One of the pictures I posted in this thread of Cliff's tower rig was taken in a dome (Quonset hut style) construction gym... which I've been in... absolutely one of the worst acoustical environments imaginable (I'd think)... like if you listen close enough, you can still hear every sound that was ever made in that room Anyhoo... that tower rig actually sounded good in that room, which up-until that experience, nothing was the only thing that I could imagine would even be palatable in that room... i.e.: a room that's an example of the ultimate diminished point of return in less being more. It leads me to consider the value of finesse over brute strength.



                            The one draw-back to the tower rigs I see is I'm of the impression they do have a glass ceiling, where if more is needed, there's only one way, and that's up, and you can only go up so-far.

                                I ran all 3 models through a battery of tests, it's a good speaker for many applications. Excellent cosmetics, nice fit and finish, pretty good sounding boxes (very middle of the road, similar to the MRX-500 series), the only real drawback IMO is that these current models are made of MDF which makes them heavier and more fragile than I would like to see. Then again, if that's not an issue for you, it's hard to beat for the price.
