  1. H2s back for sale Buyer is struggling to collect so I’ve agreed with him to put them back for sale as he can’t collect anytime soon. So you lucky guys get a second chance to buy a fantastic condition pair of H2s

    AE2 speaker help

    On my quest to try new speakers I’ve now got a pair of AE2s. had first listen today. One sounds great the other seems to have no bass and sounds kind of reedy. The bass drivers are moving in and out but there’s no fullness and it sound very different to the other speaker. I’ve tried it in both channels on the amp sounds the same whatever it’s plugged into. Any ideas what it could be and what to do to fix it?…

  9. For Sale Impulse H2 Speakers These came to me from the original owner, he used them for a year and then stored them for over 20 years. They are in time warp condition. Absolutely immaculate. Woofers have had a recent refoam with proper H2 refoam kit to be sure they are spot on. Beautiful grain on the veneers, I would say rosewood colour. Pictures show it’s colour well. They sound fantastic, many people think H2s were the jewel in the impulse crown. If you ever fancied trying H2s this is the pair to have. They are sensitive and work well with valve amps Or solid state. I think they are 95db. They can be transported in a large car of estate, I can get them in my Focus estate easily. They need to be collected or by HiFi taxi courier is not a realistic option. I am willing to meet up or delivery within reason for petrol costs. I think £1150 is fair for them. Impulse H2: Arguably the best of the lot. Capable of stupendous bass quality and extension - although specified for cutoff at 40Hz, in-room measurements at home show extension flat down to 30Hz, -6dB at c.27Hz. Positioning close to the rear wall is recommended, but this speaker is remarkably unfussy about siting. Tractrix midhorn with driver open to rear and top, inverted-dome tweeter Sensitivity 95dB/W, 8ohm Drivers: 8.5" Seas bass; 4.5" Seas mid; Focal tweeter. Crossover ponts: 800Hz; 4Khz; 2nd order summed response. Size: 1160mm H x 270mm W x 480mm D Finishes: Rosewood or Oak with cloth inserts.

  10. Steve If you want a demo I'm happy to show you how it works. Drying in the air is not the problem you think it is. All the solids are left in the ultrasonic bath there is nothing left to dry onto the record. The process of drying using a vacuum is actually likely to reintroduce particles of dirt. There are lots of wammers using the Velvet Vortex, many have sold their scrub n vac type systems in favour of the VV. After cleaning records you can clearly see the dirt that is removed in the bottom of the bath. Also there is very little fluid left on the record after the ultrasonic process its nothing like the amount of fluid after using a Knosti or scrub n vac type system. Hope that helps
  11. We stayed at Nigel's place a few weeks ago and it is fantastic. The appartment is superb and there is lots to do in the area. Heartily recommend staying here, we will be going again for sure.
  12. What are difference’s between mki and mkii?
