    Anybody heard new Sony ES range of speakers?

    I think there was a good review of the SS-NA2ES in Stereophile recently - was by JA if I remember rightly, so a nice technical analysis. Just a point, but I suspect the price on the Sony website is per 'speaker, but if my suspicion is incorrect that sounds like a complete bargain!

    Project: Horns

    Definitely should, I agree - just need to find 4 channels of matching amplification and get a new set of Dynaudio surrounds... Which is probably a bit too much activation energy when it comes to hifi these days! Having said that I came home this weekend to set up the big L300's and give them a final test - have spent a whole day playing album after album, they are totally epic - best 'speaker I've owned. Hence, to get back on topic, I'd say that 3-way with a direct radiator doing bass might be compromised for total horn heads (and probably also empirically speaking in terms of lower mids), but I reckon it is satisfying enough for most of us.

    Project: Horns

    reminds me that I've still got those active monitors with the JBL Bi-radial horn mated to 8" Dynaudio drivers in the garage...

    A long shot, hip hop/rap song question!

    horrible song, but was the thing that came to mind when thinking of something electronic with a big breakdown ala Harlem Shake.

    Sony V-FETs obviously fashionable

    You could get what is regarded as one of the greatest V-FET amplifiers of all time for less? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SONY-VFET-STEREO-AMPLIFIER-TA-N7B-/330896570460?pt=UK_AudioTVElectronics_HomeAudioHiFi_Amplifiers&hash=item4d0af8f85c (this might be dodgy though, can't really decide)

    What's on the menu tonight?

    it is a combination that screams taste, refinement, intelligence and I feel it says a lot about me as a man.

    What's on the menu tonight?

    heavily reduced 'Taste the Difference' pizza and curly fries. Yeah I'm 'bout that life bitches.

    Anyone heard Yamaha Soavo-3 speakers?

    I had a pair of the Soavo 1's - they were good all-rounders and easy to listen to, but for some reason didn't set my world on fire. I'd listen before purchase if possible.

    Devialet D-Premier

    So is it a bit like using MF Superchargers strapped on the end of a little class A amplifier?
  11. Since I'm aiming to sell the JBLs and have already sold the Luxman, I might go hifi-less for a while in 2013 (currently mostly use laptop 'speakers or Beyer DT880's). Eventually might try some active monitors if I can think of a setup that fits with my diet of music mainly played from the laptop/Spotify.

    Future Wam Bake-off house

    I rather like the swimming pool, the rest is predictably a bit 'Manchester Businessman'

    Places to take a woman on a date in Brighton...

    well, when in Rome... Also, I suspect the anal sex option is about as classy as a date in Wagamama's (sorry Hoops)
  14. forum fads have really moved upmarket since the days of ebay cables, budget DACs and second tier Japanese amps!
