I was reasonably happy with my speakers, well OK,just looking for a little bit of an upgrade and considering a pair of Proac's or modding the crossovers in my existing PMC's. So EOS suggests I listen to something further up the food chain to get a better handle on exactly what it is I want to improve. Why not have a listen to the Triangle Magellan Duetto's that Dana has in Bargain Corner in the UKD web site.
So tonight Dana appears at my door with 2 boxes, yes 2, from which appear the most beautifully finished and larger than expected Triangles.
They were plonked on the stands in more or less the same position as I have my PMC's we played a few CD's and a bit of vinyl for a couple of hours.
And now the bit that hurts. These lovely looking and sounding standmounters are half price at ┬ú1750, but I cannot afford them, damn you Sodbury for recommending a speaker that I like so much I'm now considering flogging one of my kidneys.
Thanks to Dana for coming over, the speakers just disappeared into the background and made all the music I tried soung good frm Joni Mitchell to Pantera. It was all a delight. Bass detail and upper mid mids were coming through clearly as opposed to the PMC's which seemm to have a slight dip in the response curve.
I can even forgive the fact that they are Mahogany, not sure what the wife say though.
