RADFORD: Quad II vs Leak 20 vs Radford STA 25 vintage equipment

.

 I have now had several months to compare the flaws & virtues of all of these in my system. Unfortunately I have not been able to use the 57's so this is largely based on the units driving the Hornings which have Lowther mids but are otherwise not horn based at all. They do comprise an easy 4 ohm load but don't like to go loud.

At the end of the day I suppose the Radford would be classed as the most "modern sounding" of the group- it's the "fastest" & has the most clearly defined leading edges to notes. Bass definition is similar to the Leak but the treble is slightly ............
