  1. Keep me updated on developments please! Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  2. I've just tried the RA cable with the valve pre and it seems to be working nicely, potentially more detail coming through than before, and it's no longer fiddly to get the volume you want at low levels late at night. Before that I tried it in my valve integrated, the volume knob of which I turn about 1/3 of the way to get a normal for me (lowish) level so a much lower gain than the pre. The cable made it sound very laid back and a bit flat, the bass was also slightly muddier. So it might be that where there is no gain issue it doesn't work as well. This would explain much of the negative feedback about attenuators. Thanks again Nigel very generous of you to pass on the cable gratis [emoji16] Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  3. I think when I was first buying a system the obvious choice was QED as I ended up with a load of their speaker cable and interconnects. Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  4. No TDL fans here? Maybe there are but they already have enough pairs [emoji38] Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  5. What about Monster? Apparently they may have just gone bust.
  6. Think I heard a pair pumping out some electronica at the last Scalford or first Kegworth show, I was rather impressed. Can't remember whose they were now. I wonder if they'd like valves? Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  7. Nice mix of speakers there, if you have room for them. Always wanted to try a pair of Shahinians. Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  8. No more odd than the attenuators themselves. To build them into the cable reduces the number of contacts by one. I tried attenuators and had a feeling I was getting a slight loss in transparency, but it was hard (read impossible) to adjust the volume knob to match the levels exactly. I'm hoping these will be better, plus the cable itself might work nicely too if I'm lucky [emoji1] Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  9. Can't stand that foreign crap. If you could PM me the name and address of this errant charitable institution I'll pop by first thing on Monday as soon as they open and give them an earful about the post Brexit retail environment and buying British 😆
  10. PM sent a bit ago. If they don't work for me I'll offer them back here or sell and donate to charity. Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  11. Just to add a pair of the Studio 0.5's sold recently for over £300. I think that's 3 models down from mine - 0.5, 0.75, 1, 2. Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  12. I've gone and bought 2 new pairs of speakers so really need some space. These are among my favourite speakers I've owned over many years and dozens of pairs. They are well built and sound great, with detailed mids and highs and bass that goes low but stays tight. The bass supports the music but doesn't dominate as I often find with ported speakers. Rather like a sealed box but with more bass (or bigger driver). They do like a nice strong SS amp to stay in control though. Before I bought them I read reviews that the metal dome tweeter is a bit hot, I can safely say that is not the case at all. In fact I changed my cable to get more treble out of them (my last cable was a bit laid back). As I want to move them on quick I'm after £295 collected from North London near the M25 A10 A1, A406 etc . The last pair went for nearly £400 and the smaller Studio 1s go for a similar or higher price than I'm asking. Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
  13. Can see them now as low res thumbnails Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk
