New guys on the scene, Jumping Cactus follows in the footsteps of Frosty the Snowman with their $9800 Jumping Cactus system. Each mini speaker sits on a solid aluminum platform, coupled to the base via NASA-derived product "velcro" that, I am told, is surprisingly good at providing vibration isolation for these enclosures. Keep reading for more ADHD cacti.

Included in the $9800 is the 15" Dayton subwoofer, powered by a modest 1000 watts. System frequency is 23Hz to 20kHz with 95dB into 8 ohms. Power came from a Cary amp with $1200 Western Electric 300B tubes, preamped by an ancient Dynaco and sourced by a Rega turntable.

The general buzz about this room was very positive. It took most people a second to stop looking at the speakers and actually listen to the sound -- audiophiles, so superficial. Hopefully we'll see a review of the patent pending Jumping Cacti out of Tucson, Arizona soon.
