Replace my rubbish Gothams
English


Right, seeing as my Gothams are such tosh, what should I be using instead? I couldn't hear any difference between them and my Chord Cobra 2, so obviously I should be aiming a bit higher. Got any suggestions? Money no object (since I'll be buying off eBay). Oh and might as well get some speaker cable as well. Do I hear Indigo?

Coat hangers...metal mind, the wooden ones aren't as good but do the blackest blacks you've ever heard...

Re: Replace my rubbish Gothams

I Would be interested myself in some comments by one of the contributing editors here re. Clearaudio Copper, Merlin Bach, Merlin Chopin Classic (now available on ebay for £40) or the £48 Atlas Equator. Which one is best for Transparency, drive and focus, nothing soft and woolly. I'll buy one and post my findings compared to the GAC-1 on my loan system.

Re: Replace my rubbish Gothams


I'm serious. If I'm missing something, I'd like to know what it is, and how much I have to pay to get it.

I reckon he would take £70. The new version are £175 for 0.5m. I paid £75 for my Chameleon Silver Plus (1m) which was a good price. You could buy, try and sell for the same if not a profit if you weren't happy.
