Report in on how things go, provided, of course, you don't mind being eavesdropped on! twisted

£42,500 speakers?  Pah!  That's Cno's interconnect budget.

It's just a throwaway phrase, used (mainly) by folk who don't know what they're talking about, often about products which are highly recommended by the mag and other hi-fi reviewers, etc.

It's quite often applied to entire ranges of speakers, often by folk who haven't heard any of them. "Why not have a demo of the MAs?"... "No, they're too bright". D'oh.

I tend to disregard the opinions of anyone who thinks all products of a particular brand, type or technology sound the same Smile

Lol, yeah i know Cno not very subtle was I. Thing is peeps tend to take the facts as an insult to their system which is daft. If they like what they are hearing then fine by me. But,and well ok 'boom tizz' is an oft missused old description, if you dont want the answer dont ask the question,lol.  Smile

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 'Cno & floyd' show" (Sorry wasn't taking the rise).

I think when it comes to different makes or thinking outside the box, I am a creature of habit. I know the brands I like... it's like washing poweder, for example: I always buy Daz powder and not the ball or squidgy pads.

I agree that people who don't like a certain brand use the terms "boom tiz or tis". I'd rather they say it's too bright or upfront rather than a term you have to check on 'Slang Dictionary'.

Going by this forum people want tight or taut bass rather than shelf wobbling lower frequencies. I personally look at shelf wobblers as Old Skool, days when you could land a jumbo jet on top of a speaker.

Taut bass is fine upto a point: If it becomes too tight then IMO it just loses bass. I like bass one can chew on. Feel the experience rather than just hear it...

Seen it so many times on this forum, especially about MAs. Does it mean sibilance or hefty treble and bass or all three?

surely it's the sound that emanates from most cars driven by boy racers.

It might be, but only until Mrs Cno finds out and then my back will be the least of my problems....I'll leave you my copy of "From Gracchi to Nero", as I can't think of anyone else who would appreciate it!

I am on a quest to find a system - eventually - that is all 'inside the box'. 

Going to hear the £699*  B&W A7 next week. I have gut feeling it's not going to be quite what I want, but I am seeing some very encouraging reports. Maybe they'll make an A9. We'll see.

*About the price of a metre of 'budget' speaker cable Cno.

Ta. Appreciated.

I'm still trying to make time to get some of Livy's 'Early History of Rome' done in-between Dorothy Hartley's 'Food In England' and N.A.M Rodger's first two volumes of naval history before the last volume comes out next year.

Will do mate. Going to approach it with this mantra " what you are listening to are rubbish you do not want them"
