    The 'E' Goals have landed (ouch!!)

    Firstly, apologies for the fucking awful pun

    A few weeks ago i just missed out on Jakes E's that were up for sale here. I've always wanted a pair and it was an impulse attempt, but after missing out on them i was surprised how upset i was. Anyway a chance came up to buy an even fancier pair, but with it the increased costs. I initially thought it's not possible, but after mulling it over, realised how much i had always wanted a pair and with a little sacrifice, it may just be impossible to actually obtain them.

    The seller (a fellow Wammer) was a very amenable chap and was in no rush to sell and happy to give me some time to come up with the dosh. So, i set to; i sold my lovely Harbs and then the rest of my entire office system (back to using a pair of original MS 10's & an Arcam Alpha - my 1st ever system) and a couple of treasured vinyl rarities.

    The target was eventually reached and on Saturday myself and my 4 year old daughter went on a 'special mission' to pick the E's up from a secret hotel in Earls Court, these monsters are now in situ:



    AN-E/spe's in lovely high gloss oak and with the huge bonus of grilles.

    So far, i'm absolutely delighted, the Leben, as expected, drives them with ease, delicacy and poise. I know where i have placed them isn't ideal, but they still sound great, some minor adjusments over the next few weeks and a full review soon.

    Cheers all

    Rich

    Enjoy them Rich. The thing I really miss about my E's is the speed and a sense of total darkness behind the instruments. It'd be isn't sound then sudden silence! My current speakers sound positively slow by comparison.
    Karma means I can rest easy at night knowing all the people I treated badly had it coming.

    Lovely Rich. I've never heard a pair I didn't like and they look cracking.
    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but Iím not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Its a quandry, do you tell your daughter not to push in the middles or does that just make it more tempting?

    I know what I was like when I was four, ...best say nothing!!!

    Lovely speaks, always fancied a pair.

    Nice one Rich. I wondered why the "fire sale" was going on, and now all is revealed. Great move.
