At the latest Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in October 2013 Audio Shark.org came by and Mike, who owns the site, posted: "If these speakers sold for $50,000 they would be undervalued. At $3500.00 they are stupid"

In The Absolute Sound show report they said: There were two Emerald Physics rooms I wandered into here at RMAF, and both were exceptional. The first was the smaller of the two systems, featuring the latest iteration of the “entry-level” model, the CS3, now a Mark II ($3,500/pair). The lineup features a coaxial-driver with a 12” woofer; it can be and was driven by a single amp, and here paired with a digital crossover, a DSPeaker Anti-Mode 2.0 bass correction system and a pair of REL subwoofers. Throw in a Jolida Fusion DAC/Transport, and Walter was selling the bundle for a hair under $9,000. That is, everything you’d need (except cables), in one ready-to-go package. The cool thing? Ha ha – as if you needed more – you could put those speakers just about anywhere and expect (and get!) top-to-bottom performance that not only rivaled but exceeded that found in systems in the Tower that were 5x the cost. If this is the future, we’re all gonna need shades. It was a convincing demo."

3) Part Time Audiophile: "Anyway, Walter was showing off a complete audiophile system — soup to nuts — that sells for $8,995. That’s everything (except cables). And let me forestall any questions about how the sound “at this price” is some sort of compromise or trade-off by saying that this was a very convincing case for not breaking the bank on your next new system. No, $9k isn’t chump change and quite frankly it’s wearying to have to repeat that bit over and over, but out of respect, I will: it’s not nothing. But let me re-state and re-emphasize what I’ve already said — this $9k system will redefine what you thought was possible, regardless of the money you spend."
4) The Audio Beat gave us Best of Show and said: "What made this system stand out, other than its price and the fact that attendees could easily purchase it, was its powerful, refined sound. Dynamics and authority were on full view, along with a meaty midrange that brought voices to life -- all at a reasonable price."

The new Emerald Physics CS3 MK2 replaces our very successful CS3. The MK 2 represents the next generation in our dipole technology with its point source design and room control. The new MK2 model does not have a single part used in the original and sounds considerably better. Cosmetics are also far superior.
The CS3 M2 employs our new Emerald Physics EP12.1 custom 12” woofer/midrange and tweeter point source driver with 1” compression tweeter and new external passive crossover. The new Emerald Physics DSP2.4 digital electronic crossover/EQ provides DSP controlled crossover and equalization for the system.
Our controlled dispersion design eliminates most listening room anomalies, allowing the CS3 MK2 to sound great in virtually all rooms. The CS3 MK2 will work from one amp in small to medium sized rooms. When used with a powered subwoofer you can have a fully bi-amplified system and can fill almost any sized room with superb dynamics and bass into the 20Hz range. Our beautiful new cosmetic is a major upgrade. Satin black is standard. Custom finishes are available at additional cost. The photo is of the beautiful red Tricoat gloss finish.
Features:
• Single Amp drive - Does not require bi-amplification.
• New Emerald Physics EP12.1 midrange/tweeter point source driver.
• World Class sonic performance in a compact package.
• Incredible imaging and soundstage reproduction. Some say the best at any price.
• World Class Bass speed and articulation.
• Works well in small rooms as close as 2ft from the rear wall and up to 1 foot from the side wall.
• Can be used with moderate stereo amps & integrated amps w/preamp out & main in.
• Outboard midrange/tweeter hi pass crossover with optional Special Edition version available.
• Includes DSP 2.4 crossover/EQ which has subwoofer crossover for bass extension & adds the ability to play extremely loud in large rooms.

The last customer email was quite typical and said:
"Walter, I don’t know how to thank you for this speaker. Every night is a new listening experience. I’ve been at this hobby for 40 years, can still hear, have gone through speaker after speaker, cable after cable, CD player after CD player, amp after amp, trying without success to get this sound. I’ve had ET LFT VIIIs, Gallos, Harbeths, Merlins (VSM and TSM), Spendors, Von Schwiekerts, Magnapans, and at least a dozen others through my listening room. The EPs give a rightness to the midrange that just lets you suspend your disbelief...lets you climb on stage and be there. As it does this, it forgives what little things my system could be better about. I read Stereophile now, with its 55k D’Agostino mono amps, and I don’t wonder what they sound like. I don’t care. I’ve managed to quit wondering. I have my last pair of speakers, and I can say, all of this was worth waiting for. If anyone told me in 1980 that CD could sound like master tape, I’d just shake my head. But now, with these speakers, its vinyl. Front to back layering. Perfect attack. Perfect decay. Perfect tone." "I have about 4k in my front end, and about 1.6k in my subs. Not enough to break a sweat in today’s market. My room is heavily treated to stop slap echo. Could I spend more? Yes, I could spend easily ten times what I’ve paid (now that there’s no college tuition due!). But I refuse to do so. Because this is a hobby, and the fun is finding the good stuff and making it sing. I truly think Stereophile and TAS have forgotten us." "Well, onwards to music. Thanks again for buying this speaker line and making it work. People are still putting accelerometers on boxes and saying gee, very little distortion! I’m sitting with these things saying...there’s NO distortion - why would I think of owning other speakers? This is the holy grail. End of the line. Don’t need to know what comes next, because I’m good. Real good. Haven’t looked at my watch once. Well, except to see that I’m late to get to sleep!" Thank you!!!!! Regards, John
