  1. Have you slept-after spending countless hours listening? Or is work interfering with your listening time? Stories of you pulling out old favourites and hearing new subtlties welcome!
  2. but no erudite description of music sounding like soft water flowing on a summers' day.....
  3. Something weird going on here. I get this https://www.hifi-forsale.co.uk/moreinfo.php?prod_title=OCELLIA_.21_SILVER_GRANDIS_SIGNATURE&p=speaker&prod_id=83085&offset= will look further. Thanks Jerry -they ARE reluctantly for sale!
  4. (If you can get past Mr Mogadon's tone) this might be useful. Plus ...Solder the connections. Great-waiting will be worth it I hope.
  5. Had a Basement Listening/hi-fi room once; next door was being renovated, so I turned the sound up to Lemmy levels and popped next door. "Can you hear the music?". "What music?"......JUST what I needed him to say! Funnily enough, once occupied, I could hear next doors' dog bark! Seems a strange aural quirk -we can be alerted by Baby's cry or dog bark, but not high volume music. As to listening (I was late 30s/early 40s) used to find HOURS had passed, listening to Klipschorns.
  6. https://www.hifi-forsale.co.uk/moreinfo.php?prod_title=OPERA_CONSONANCE_M15-20th_Anniversary_Horn&p=speaker&prod_id=82774&offset= something different?
  7. Keep them coming-I just posted, needing Sony PS1 check (used as CD player!)here in Bristol!!
  8. VERRY subtle, Mr Tony! I was about to say"the surrounds are shot...." when I got it!
  9. Von Schweikert speakers are designed to be close to walls-most don't seem to be. Trouble is, they are rare here.
  10. Peachtree iDecco. Great all rounder, with good headphone circuit. You get free dac/power amp free with it!
  11. ON 'Hi Fi For sale site'. https://www.hifi-forsale.co.uk/moreinfo.php?prod_title=OCELLIA_.21_SILVER_GRANDIS_SIGNATURE&p=speaker&prod_id=81942&offset= reduced from £7250 Familiar to some Wammers
  12. I've said before- my Zigmahornets are made from 1+1/2 inch polystyrene! (long story...) PVA coated, they sound great as desk side units. Even Bass! "Shaft' playing! They changed my views on small speakers (from my 17 years of Klipschorn owning!) and after hearing the depth and detail/aura , I invested in Ocellia Calliopes for my main set-up.
  13. Bad for your wallet-you'll end up desperately needing Klipsch Cornwall 4s! (But then, why not?)
