I can't believe how ungrateful my wife is.
I go to the trouble of buying her a birthday present and she just shouts at me because it's not what she wanted and I haven't even wrapped it myself.
I thought she liked fish and chips!
I used to have the Mastersound 845's and they really are superb. I sold them to fund the purchase of my Conrad Johnson 350. It was an itch I had to scratch but I would be more than happy if I still had the Mastersounds.
Personally I found the combination of them with the matching preamp a bit too cosy for my tastes but partnered with a CJ pre (which is a bit leaner) they were fantastic.
The 300b monos are meant to be pretty special too.
As the coffin was being lowered into the ground at a Parking Officers funeral a voice was heard yelling - "I'm not dead! I'm not dead yet, let me out!"
It was at that moment that the Priest leant forward, sucking air through his teeth and muttered...
"Too fudging late pal, I've already done the paperwork!"
Thanks for the reply Richard. As above, the Puresound 845 is in the same price league as the Icon mk2, provided you can find a pair like you mentioned. Do you think they will be an improvement on the Icons and more importantly, be able to drive the Harbeth 40.1’s with grip? The interstage design will be a massive plus as I’ve had my issues with the capacitor coupling as you know
It’s a good shout and something that I have considered. The issue though is that if you go up to the latest mk2, there is also a massive jump in price, which opens up other possibilities, for instance the Pure Sounds.
The Icon mk2’s are on the shortlist though, so thanks for the recommendation
