    What are you listening to right now?

    dZihan & Kamien - Freaks & Icons (2000) Great album
  2. I'm looking to upgrade my speakers, and I'm contemplating buying a pair of Piega Premium 7. I have no experience whatsoever with the brand, but the general feedback seems to be positive. I'm currently using Spendor S5e, and have been doing so for quite a few years. However, due to a disgusting experience with their local rep and more or less with the UK company as well, I'm going to stay well away from them for the foreseeable future. Therefore, I'm looking for good value for money from a different brand, and, at least on paper, these seem to fit the bill. Problem is, I now live in the middle of nowhere, the speakers are some 400 miles away, so testing them at home is not an option. I don't mind driving down there to have a listen before I pick them up, 'cause it's my home town, but I would like to have some sort of indication it won't be a wasted trip. My amp/pre-amp setup is NuPrime Dac10H/NuPrime ST-10. No shortage of power there, actually they drive my very difficult S5e's with an iron fist. They are also very detailed. I haven't heard them on other speakers, but I did hear my speakers on the end of various combos up to ten grand worth, and based on that I'd rate them as rather neutral, certainly not bright at all. I listen to all sorts of stuff, minus jazz and classical. No drum'n'bass either. Room is about 10x30 feet, and very tall with a sloped ceiling. For the time being, they will probably be firing across the length, about 10 feet apart. Any opinions?

    A-ha - East of the Sun West of the Moon (1990) Japanese edition, as pictured. This album marked a change in their music and it's the last one I liked. Got all their releases, as well as Morten Harket's, which I found quite refreshing, but A-Ha never attracted me much after this fourth album
