Well after much planning and long distance travel across the UK by Nigel (TheFlash) and Jack(NoSmokingMan), with a temporary stop off at Tim's(Spider), the Posselts purchased from Ian (sidsmut), arrived safely here on the south coast. I am very grateful for all the efforts put in by so many people to get them safely to my door.
Jack brought them around on Monday morning and even though I knew they were tall I was taken aback by how tall they were in the flesh when stood up in my listening room. But they do look lovely.
So, after a cup of coffee and chat with Jack we got down to hooking the speakers up to my SET valve amp, a Consonance Signature Cyber 10. First off I played sa CD from Macey Gray and then after a few tracks swapped over to some vinyl - Gregory Porter with Liquid Spirit.
An early reaction from Jack was how clear the mid range sounded. Gregory did indeed sound very clear and so did all the musicians around him. A most enjoyable initial experience. Looking forward to spending more time with them and enjoying what they can do.
As yet have not spent much time playing with position as they may end up in another room - when I get round to finish decorating, but have attached a picture of them with some very lonely AE2's that are wondering what will happen to them.
And on the plus side my OH likes them.
