Bottom Line:   
what a long strange trip its been. when i first got this speaker i was blown away by its dynamics and open sound. however, my ears were ringing a bit and i realized that listener fatigue was happening. so, i got an outboard dac that helped matters significantly, but still experienced some residual fatigue. i thought that it must be the speakers because my amp was supposed to of above average quality. before jumping to audiophile anxiety i decided to try a tube amplifier, a modified jolida 102b to be exact and presto. things became so much more smooth and liquid, even more than the dac upgrade.
to describe the speakers now, they are open, articulate, capable of good dimensionality in a 3 dimensions. the tweeter is extended and the bass is accurate to @40hz. they are capable of wonderful dynamics and quick transients. bottom line, they are great if things upstream are great. if your source and especially your amplification are subpar then these speakers will not forgive you. i highly recommend them with that restriction applied, as it should be with any speaker of good accuracy. i think tubes are a better match here than solid state.

I wanted to be sure it was the amp ,so I switched the tubes. Instant fizzout from the tube that was a ... Read More »

Analog? So, that means tape decks too? (My Nakamichi RX-202 repair story)

I'm not going to argue the merits of cassettes or anything like that, but I do have fun with a tape deck from time to time, either making mixes for friends or parties or for a few stacks of new cassettes by some less mainstream artists I still pick up from time to time. I've been using a Denon dual ... Read More »

Spectro Acoustics 202

Maybe I’m keeping stuff to long (but I sure love my OLD gear), my Spectro Acoustics 202 amp just died. No schematics, no support, what now? Maybe I'll dust off the Dynaco 400 amp and see if still works.Read More »
