I haven't heard them yet, so I cannot tell more at the moment. Their Integrator module system is of a similar concept to the Tonelux's which I haven't heard neither.
But I "e-talked" to both designers Gerd Jüngling (ADT) and Paul Wolff (Tonelux), and what I can tell you is that Gerd Jüngling is waaayyyy better mannered than P. Wolff. Precisely:
- From G. Jüngling I got some great and kind replies, with plenty of technical details, a.s.o.
- From P. Wolff I got nothing but insults. (sic!)
I really think that ADT might be the way to go, at least in Europe! I will hear some ADT soon, and I'll tell you what I think.
Let me make a few facts clear on this comment:
First of all, this guy did not ask me anything technical. All he did was make his comment. The entire thread unloaded on him. Because I was directly asked how I would describe it. So yes, I gave him some shit.
Go read the whole thing, you will see how full of crap the comment is, as was the other ones.
It was on the "Tonelux. Paul Wolff.. How would you rate it?
HeyMan asked ME to answer this question:
Paul, please toot your own horn here as to where you would put your stuff
on a scale compared to the big boys (Api's Legacy, Trident A- range and the well tuned Neve stuff).. I am talking Headroom, openess, depth, routing and summing quality.
My reply was:

This this guy responded with this comment, obvously not reading the whole thread:
Paul, with all due respect - really - I am not sure I like whenever a designer/builder praises his own stuff so shamelessly. This is not to say things may not be exactly the way you describe them, or better, but...
I second this. If it is the best sounding stuff in the world [which makes no sens BTW -- I don't know what is an "unsurpassed high end"], I want to hear it from any other than the designer/builder/salesman himself.
So there you go. So where is the technical questions you asked me for? Care to repeat them?
Everyone on the whole GS knows me and knows that I have no secrets and will explain anything to anyone. I do it for my company as well as other companies who don't either know or don't exist.
Paul Wolff, the insulter.
