Bottom Line:   
these horn loaded speakers look more like jumbo jet engines than speakers! They have 2 concentric horn loaded drivers and each includes n integrated solid state 250W amplifier, somewhat mitigating the cost. This was my first experience with solid state amplification for many years but the combination of the speakers and amplifiers sound invisible. these are speakers with very little sound of their own, they disappear very impressively into a wide and deep soundstage with accurate imaging and a lot of detail. When you rediscover your Cd and vinyl collection again, you know that you've bought something special. These speakers are so detailed that they encourage you to reduce the volume! unlike many speakers they don't require high sound levels to impress, it's the detail that remains at low levels that is a sign of a high resolution system. 2 large bass drivers ensure a full frequency response with little need for a sub-woofer.

Jeff Tweedy solo...do I want to see this?

I just found out that Jeff Tweedy is doing a solo show in town in March. Has anyone seen him solo? Is this something that I should go to? Or should I hold out for the next Wilco tour? I've never seen Wilco live (they sell out so fast), does Tweedy do Wilco material on his own. Tickets go on sale ... Read More »

Roger Glover's (Deep Purple's bassist) pretty cool solo disc, Snapshot

Wow, this was a pretty groovy find in the cheapo bins at Rasputin's. It's not the best disc in the world, but I've certainly done worse. :ciappa: And a total 180 from what he does with DP. He plays mostly bass, along with accoustic guitar & some vocals, but he pretty much stays in the background an ... Read More »
