Re: Hi, new member

Very nice looking vintage setup. I like the little filing cabinet with it.

Re: Speaker Choices for Lejonklou amplifiers…?

I can pretty much relate to this. I run A242 with Sagatun/Tundra stereo. They are somewhat analytical in their character on some recordings even with Lejonklou amps. They have a very neutral (cold) sound that lack base. That makes them a little boring to listen to in the long run. Maybe Tundra ster...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

B for me as well on tracks 1 and 3. I couldn't get me ear into 2 so will take a pass on that.

Similar to Thomas, I thought the tracks sounded a bit muffed for 242s - not out of phase are they, or perhaps a phone case blocking the mic?

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

I did try to compare last night but C was taking forever to upload. Needn't have worried though as I preferred A and B over C like everyone else.

A is more my type of sound, less impressive than B but just made more sense and was more enjoyable.

Re: Linn Klimax Solo 800

I enjoyed active 360s the other week, especially via the Klimax LP12. They do a good job of disappearing.

Doubt I'll get to hear the Solo 800s as my dealer is not getting a dem pair.

Cool!

Maybe try quite a lot closer in that case with about 150cm between tweeters.

Re: Pete's System

I've had a look at the mic positions and they are not too dissimilar. I now remember to avoid covering them with my fingers so I'm not sure what the cause is. It does make the comparisons harder (for me anyway). Fair enough. I was trying out stereo on an iPhone 15 so perhaps it's caused by somethin...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

I hear too much sound off the wall in 2856.

I'd probably go with 2857 but hard to tell with that track.

Maybe try closer together too, although I appreciate you have the cabinet preventing them going much closer to one another.

Re: Pete's System

I prefer 'without' too. I suppose you could try re-positioning the speakers with the room treatment, but personally I couldn't be bothered based on these clips - not enough potential to get me interested. Agree with beck that you need to get the speakers optimised in their current position first. Ca...

Re: Tony Tune-age System

I'm glad Tony. Entity 1.1 to 1.2 is an inconspicuous update with a big impact. And the Sagatun upgrade is a real revelation. I agree. I wasn't entirely sold on the Entity until hearing the 1.2 version (kindly loaned by a forum member). Bought a Slipsik 8 in the end but that was no reflection on the...

Re: How we define "good sound"

Can't recall a concert that sounded so bad I couldn't enjoy the music. Most sound pretty rough. Been to some half-decent indoor ones though.
