I had imagined this was a thread which held no dangers, and had therefore not been paying attention to it. D'oh.
Danger lurks around every corner, that sibilence stuff can be very nasty as I found out this morning.
We do so many shows in a row,
And these towns all look the same,
We just pass the time in our hotel room
And wander 'round backstage,
Till the lights come up, and we hear that crowd,
And we remember why we came.
It's always the metal dome speakers that cause SSSSSSibilanThx
Better cymbals sound and sibilance (metal dome)or no sibilance and not so good cymbals (soft dome).
Beg to differ. IME, metal tweeter Totem Forest + bi-amp'd Arcam A38/P38 = sibilance-free zone.
A pair of Totem Forests, yesterday
I've heard that the Forests are supposed to be very good... did you demo them?
Yep. I'd been demo'ing speakers with my existing amps and CDP to the point of tedium. Then I tried some Forests, and one of the combo's many positive traits was bags of detail but no sibilance whatsoever
I bought the Forests on the spot
Thought that more more of a human trait more than a Brit trait
Sonos Connect - Rotel RCD-965BX
Naim NAC A5 - Spendor SA-1
AKG K450 - AKG K551
I find 320K is a perfectly acceptable Brit trait.
Marantz M-CR603 • Rega R3 loudspeakers • AirPlay • Apple iPad Mini • Apple iPhone 5 • Apple iMac • Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11N • Humax HDR-Fox T2 • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390
As a matter of interest, what source do you use?
Also, any chance of a mini review of the forests... it would be good to read something interesting
Accuphase E350 amp, Electrocompaniet EMC1UP CDP, Siltech 25th Classic anniversary 330I XLR Harbeth Super HL5 on Sound Anchor Quod ELS63 stands, Chord Odessey2 speaker cable. Grado SR60 headphones.
The Bit Rate that's a Brit Trait.....there's a tongue twister in there somewhere.

Don't know if that's high enough, sounds a bit pony though.
Alas and ALAC, you might prefer FLAC, but I am not hapless because I can get gapless.
You may well ROFL but - as fr0g will oft woffle - 320 (we're told) sounds the same with a blindfold.
doesn't that muffle the sound?
It stops the highs sounding coarse from way up on my horse.
