Thanks jax. Always been a big fan of brushed ally units as they go well with wood cabinets. Also really likeing the Adam's gloss black finish, very cool. I may get the stands painted gloss to match
That's a really nice looking system you've got there.
I've never heard Adam's home speakers. Do they sound the same as their studio monitors?
PC > AVI Neutron Five 2.1
32GB Sony NWZ-A846 Walkman > Westone UM3x
Sorry haven't a clue how these compare to the studio monitors, if they have any traits of the Epsilon they would be a pretty decent sound...
Nice system Shooter , those ribbon tweeters are very good..
Have to agree these ribbon type X-Art tweeters are very good, better than any other i've heard so far, really lush un-forced and easy sounding but natural with it. Don't think i could go back to domes now.
mirrors exactly my findings. I never heard Adams but I heard other speakers with Heil AVT tweeters (X-Arts are Heil tweeters) and found them lush detailed and unforced. they seemed to me to be bright without brightness, which means there was a lot of high frequency energy generated but there was not a trace of discomfort with it. by comparison my ex Dynaudios sounded shifted down in top octaves, which robbed them off of some sparkle.
BTW, cool system!
Giro, InTheGroove, Digit, ClassicOne, MG12
These don't sparkle like my old system used to but they do extend without effort. There is some energy there for sure but its not unpleasant and whilst walking around the room music has stopped me in my tracks as i hear stuff i've never done before. If you've ever been to an amplified live gig those arrays produce some amazing highs, highs that really gets into your eardrum and makes it tingle, thats how it sounds but not so much of a grand scale. The more i listen to them the more they grow on me, i need to save for the Gamma's
