    No you don't. Judging by what I heard from them at Munich it'll be shite. Terrible, terrible bollocks of the highest overpriced order, methinks.

    Just sayin', like.

    Your right, they are worse than an Amstrad 1980's music centre.

    And the biscuit tins - wots with all the bleedin' biscuit tins?

    Mind you - they have at least extended to some genuine GE 211s - and not some cheap Chinese crap a la AN Jinro. At that price, though, whatever it is (high), you really need some Telefunken RS237s for extra cred.

    I'm sure, given PQ's huge stash of GE 211's, anyone could order a Jinro with those fitted if they really wanted to!

    Be a shame to judge the Audio Tekne stuff by the results achieved at a particular show. Certainly the schematic of their big phono stage suggests to me that they are right at the cutting edge as far as doing RIAA Eq properly is concerned.

    After a recent bake off, I have renewed respect for AN gear... but a five figure amp with bottom of the line valves in is pushing it IMHO.

    It just maybe that you're right - and maybe the other Tekne components are top notch. But the speakers? Hm... no.

    Was looking through some old photo's today & found this.



    The first Voyd, this picture would've been taken in the summer of 1985.

    This one had a chrome top plate. I still think it looks nice (but then I'm biased!)

    Nice, you could imagine all sorts of scrummy inlays for that plate. Opportunity for a bit of aftermarket bling there.

    Me. It's in the loft.

    The top plate was changed for a black one with the motor positions moved out as per the later ones. The chromed one did look quite saucy though.

    We didn't even have a lid sorted by that point so there are no hinges/brackets fitted to the rear in that pic.

    Glanz GMC-10(?) It wasn't mine & if I recall was a rather lean sounding thing. That said, I doubt we were using a SUT, more likely a home made valve head amp which may not have been loading it down enough.
