It's a strange thing that in the UK specialist highend audio outlets are hard to find but in HCM another one seems to open every month. I counted 6 last month and all within a square kilometer. We are not talking the cheap stuff here either.
I went into the latest place on Saturday evening. Plinius, Hovland, Tannoy westimisters and Kingdom's (pretty cool those I have to say), Cary, Pass X1000 mono's, Top of the range Thiels and the Brand New Luxman stuff which is pretty nice looking stuff anda major departure, designwise, from their previous stuff.
The product which really poked my eyes out though were the Dynaudio Confidence C1 standmounts. It's funny how different things are in the flesh compared to their photo's. These go back about 50 cm's!!!!! Have to be the deepest standmounts I have ever seen! Has anybody heard these?? They are way too rich for me coming in at an eyewatering 8500 US dollars!! The dedicated black chrome stands sure were dandy though. I just wandered if the radical baffles actually did anything.
