    Wilson Benesch Actor Speakers - No Knowledge, thoughts?

    would it be worth taking them to him to replace the tweeters or work his magic ? or even get those modded impulse H2 in the classifieds my impulse would match speakers worth 5 times more so worth presevearing
  2. yes , rather yummy !!!
  3. Ah I thought it was the real thing as Zoe mardle posted it I thought
  4. looking forward to bristol show this year where i believe the new D2 ribbon will be showing , now the d2 is just one of my favourite speakers but not very common 49896401_10218605814358174_2659648379105050624_n by , on Flickr
  5. just get a listen to cable monkeys system at kegworth if he is there this year , his class D amps and the tannoy are very compelling and my oldest been using a tripath amp for years which sounds reasonable considering you could put in your pocket

    Under-powered amp and Electrostatic speakers

    be a good question for the martin logan forum http://www.martinloganowners.com/forum/forum.php i could only find this thread http://www.martinloganowners.com/forum/showthread.php?17109-Minimum-WPC-to-drive-ML-Source-and-system-wide-budgetting-advice&highlight=how+much+amp+power it also says in the manual e. However, it is important that the amplifier be stable operating into varying impedance loads: a stable amplifier will be able to deliver twice its rated wattage into 4 Ohms and should again double into 2 Ohms.

    just bought the hi fi critic mag reviewing this amp , i read a review of the cd version which was good but the bit about cheap tray rather put me off https://www.hificritic.com/store/p140/hificritic-vol12-no-3.html

    Pre-amp for newly acquired ATC SCM40A's

    i use a passive /valve pre which costs about 760 new with a remote . its american made . it is incredibly transparent but the sense of live recordings is pretty marvellous . for the money its a cracker BUT i am not sure if it would match the atc . one would have to try it . must say since i changed to tungsol valves i have really been enjoying it with the big horns . very very real sound . i think a MFA might have more bass and slam though than this pre which is totally linear in presentation . In my loft room i can`t have too much bass so it suits well . it has xlr in and out

    yes i adore the 808 and 707 and fortunately my speakers are every bit as good i think . i tried to hear the 505 at a show but they were playing all day this heavy metal stuff on a tape loop [ well thats what it sounded like !! ] and it was so appalling . but i am sure they sound beautiful with decent music
