    Thanks Rick, great evening. Good to see everyone again.

    That's the paradox... a lovely small speaker, decent WAF, but it still needs a big room....

    One of the problems with side-firing woofers I think, especially in a narrow room. My main system has separate boxes for mid-plus-tweeter and bass. Aesthetically they look better with the (12") woofers firing sideways, presenting a narrow aspect face on, but sonically they are much better with all drivers facing forward. Those Boenicke speakers are a revelation for their size though, a very modern sound (fast, tight) with great bass extension. Wish I'd spent more time in that room.

  10. This acoustic album from Anna Ternheim was released in 2011 and features a clutch of seasoned Nashville session men. Recording was by Dave Ferguson at his Butcher Shoppe Studio. Matt Sweeney introduced Anna Ternheim, a Swedish singer-songwriter who divides her time between New York and Stockholm, to Ferguson when she needed inspiration for a new album. The experience produced a very different album to those before or since, and it's my favourite of her output. It was available as a single CD or a as a box set with second CD and DVD. Have a listen and see what you make of it. http://www.deezer.com/en/album/1815051

    You'd need a large room....
  14. september bake, off gathering thing

    Many thanks Col and Mags, a very pleasant day. Good to see the usual suspects again. The second system didn't get much listening - I even managed to play some bagpipe tunes (Treacherous Orchestra) and some Indo-Jazz Fusions without getting thrown off.

    but not quite as good a bargain as the RSPMs that went for £390 a day or two ago
