  1. Yes the editing thing is good never used it for cds , but for live two track from a mixer , yes easy to edit in to parts etc , i am going to put these in the sale post as soon as i can work out how, i think i also need to send money ? Is this correct?
  2. So been sorting out , ready to move on , selling , i have 4 mini disk ? Units ? But had a few tunes on disk today forgotten how enjoable these can sound, to my ears yes they seem to roll the top end off, but recording even live from a sound desk they sound good, i cannot to my ear s hear any real differancein the various decks i have including a nice sony mid range thing mj 350 sort of thing and also a professional, tascam 301 mark 2 Sadly about 100 disks were mistakenly put to the tip? So i only have about a dozen disks , but still nice to record radio shows etc , i seem to be spoilt for choice as i use a alesis master deck 9600 thing to record live to a hard drive ,the cd side of the unit seems to be playing up , regards , slowendall
  3. I still seem to be enjoying tunes on the pa speakers tonight , some paul weller, sounds rather too bottom ended on the hifi speakers nice enough but actually work well in tranfering to the jbl pa speakers? I know most rmix engineers also try to average mix over several sets of speakers , from top end units , to crappy sort of single driver things it used to a thing called auro tone not sure it still is the norm, The big flared 14 inch horn in a 8 by 12 listenning space stuffed with lots of furniture etc certainly isnt optimal listenning space , but having fun , looking out for some weather report cds to buy , gotta be good value on the bay or amazon sort of thing , suggestions, regards lowendall
  4. of course he will be in there but also looking for funk stuff perhaps a generation be for he came along, I have the funkadelics in mind , but thanks for the reminder, going to find a bootsie bootsy?? is it colins, . any way gotta have some of his glitz and bass on my list. and some of those mowtown players, , starting a list , asap. any compilations you can recommend, , sadly spent nearly £100 this month on tunes, so it will need to wait till next payday/ cosmic hippo I gotta get another copy as well,
  5. just noticed I seem to have become obssed with the orange gaffa tape its every where, a bit like spot the difference, for gaffa . looking for new funky sort of tunes any recommends any one, ?? I do have a couple of james brown tunes but going to make a effort to find some others, , I am about to start a after school listening to music club in one of my local schools, not at all sure what direction etc, but I am definatly going to play some classic tunes, .
  6. sadly the picture ofmylistenning space might be upsetting some , iknows it messy??? but its just for tunes, and I like to busk along on the big fiddle , sadly were moving soon so its going to be head phones only until I can find a decent builder to build me another listening room , shed sort of thing in the back garden, its all about the tunes, regards lowendall.
  7. whoops I cannot rember how to get the pics up loaded, I did load them in a post a while ago about hi res audio etc, yes as you said for a fun time listen speakers other than regular hifi can be interesting, but also I suspect a good number of hifi speakers low end and hgh end actually use nothing too special in there boxes, in deed I have heard a quiet a few speakers at the £500 to £1000 that I really have not been very impressed , it seems mostly with the top end, , and some of these units actually cannot in reality actually support proper sustained sound, I don't mean head banging levels but just good full domestic volumes, I di dhowever love the sound of my martin logan electrostatics, the model with the 8 inch driver in the bass, fiddles , voices , violins, cellos and even bass and bass guitar sound pretty good to my ears, the sound stage and extra high end stuff from the panels all very nice, but I had to drive the things with a 900 watt mossfett h and h pa amp, not actually turned up of course to get them to sing, so the room used to warm up before I got tired of listening??? anyway perhaps some one can find the pics I posted, I will try again, regards I wonder with some sort of digital control unit and a set up eq etc, I might get some proper low end out of these speakers, I am not going to go down that route, ,regards fun is a big factor is it not,
  8. Been using a very modest system for the last 15 years or so , i recently was using a nice kenwood se spcial edition 3020 uk tunned amp with my old sony ss g4 three way speakers, i think they sound ok , but recently up graded the amp to a basic yamaha a500 amp, it sound rather good , but the previous amp was perfectly usable, so i hooked up my old nearly 25 year old band pa speakers ?? Old jbl eon grey cabinets original, so the reason i do like to listen to jazz tunes and play along with my bass, so obviously these speakers are not hifi, but honestly with a bit of bass and trebble boost and plonked on the floor tillted up with a gaffa tape roll , these sound perfectly usable , to my ears , but actually i was listenning to the radio switching bettween speakers several times, i actually lost track of which speakers were on and happily listenning when i realised a complex orchestral track was sound good, and it was the pa speakers i had on?? Certainly as listennable as many hifi speakers i have had my self. Cheap kefs and even more expensive atc things , this is a opinion of course, you gotta like a nice big 14 inch horn for the top end .
  9. Looking for a box set the tchaikovsky symphonys , certainly want to pay not very much , any recommends or any one got a box for sale, , thanks rich
  10. 25 year old pa speakers , original jbl eons, I wonder if I up graded the crossover , they might shine a bit, my other main speakers big old sony g4 I think called heritage range, I enjoy these a lot , they were about £200 which was for me at the time a biiig spend, I have had electrostatic martin logans, atc scm 40 , also pro tannoy 12 studio modern units, , but they have all been moved on and I am where iam , still able to play tunes and enjoy them , same with amps had plenty of nice things older naim set up , copland , valve amps from in hear etc, still got a nice modern sony receiver and mossfett, lovely, if I could only get the radio to tune? been playing ramsey lewis collection , mocd 3012 weather report , the best and for the first time the count basie trio Pablo records, lots of good tunes and playing .
  11. hi def , sort of makes me smile . honestly its is about the tunes, isn't it, I have tapes with tunes I like to listen too, also like records, but honestly I wonder of a lot of hire is made from cd quality files, much more of a issue I would have thought is some very dodgy recording in the first place, and compression etc, honestly a lot of cds, seem to have very limited dynamics, but them again this is actually needed if its good classical , I cannot really imagine in a domestic setting proper full orchestral dynamics or even some thing close would be very tricky to deal with , iwould justbe happy if engineers would move the percussion mics away prehapsall the way on classical recordings, .just moved to a nice Yamaha s500 amp , nice to have remote, control , but its ok , sound but not very much better than a old kenwood 3020 special edition amp , that's I think about nearly 30 years old?? just saying . I have lots of cds, for casual listening.
  12. So been messing around with a set of jbl eon 15 inch bass 14 inch horn plastic grey cabs , pa speakers a set of the original jbl units, well on the end of my old sony receiver with a big of bass and trebble boost they are plonked on the floor well these sound to my ears not too bad at allw, actually i had a set of epos big thing the stand mount with i think 6 pr 8 inch bass they sounded nice to my ears , anyway these pa speakers also play tune happily , i think being on the ground with the bass coupling and the horn they actually present a ok sound field, etc , put some nice reflections in a very small listennin space , a large sing shed size room so 14 feet long and 2.2 meteres wide full of shelfs . and stuff , cds racks records etc . Had the orchestra on the radio playing in to them nice and loud , sounded good, i have definatly had a few other hifi speakers about £150 to £900 in the past and these sound fine, even compared to my other big speakers i had nice martin logan elctrostatic things with a bass speaker in the bottom of the supports,.
  13. So just asking i have a set of sennhieser ovations , and a set of the sony older pro studio things not the modern ones , i forget model number but folding cups nice metal out sides etc , coil wired etc , so i am looking for a bit of a up grade sort of along the lines of the sennhieser but with a more open top end i like the sonys ,myou seem to be 20 feet nearer the orchestra ,mi listen to mostly clasical and jazz all styles, i was a little shocked the first time i put the sonys on at how much more detail in the highs i was getting, which i liked but i do find my self going beack to the ovations for classical a lot of th time, happy to try open or closed, just got a cheap befesrod original dac for head phone duties , i have tried several gradoes up to a set at £180 i didnt really enjoy the sound not sure why ,just a few things, i have no experiance of other things , i wonderhow the hifi beyers £130 might be like, the 250 i think there called, in fife scotland so its tricky to hear things, do like a strong but not over blown bass, happy to hear your suggestions, i was previously driving headphones via aold kenwood 2030 special edition amp with tone controls and it actually seemed to do a good job or driving things along, not wanting to spend too much at all prehaps £150 max maybe a bit more dont mind second hand if i can find some not abused etc, . Thank you lowendall
  14. So i was listenning to the scottish chamber orchestra live relay last night from glasgow, bbc nicola bernadetti solo fiddle, the orchestra sounnd was quiet good, but dear lord the fiddle sounded poor, and also close miked every time she seemed to move, i presume the sound was even worse, she obviously plays on a very good sounding fiddle, at least in the many thousdands of pounds , at least 20 thousand , if its a big hitting violin , well the chaps at the bbc managed to make it sound like a fiddle down th local folk band , and actually worse as when she moved around the thing went funny, the orchestra didnt sound like the timpani or brass were in your face but nicely at the back of the hall, the stereo was odd, rather mon with a bit of left and right, again at times you can hear the engineer riding fader it seems to me bringing up theoboes or at times the various viola cello parts , it was a live broadcast , sadly i didnt record it ,but i do enjoy a live broadcast even with the fm limitations nice live room sound , plenty of bottom end in the recording. Any recomends for the same mozart on cd, a live recording would be nice, got some rachel podger comming soon , lovely , been enjoying some meridian records recordings mostly live it seems and not too mashed about, regards lowendall
