HMM: Is it essential to replace speaker drive units in pairs when one is broken?

A member writes … Thanks to City Link I have a pair of Dynaudio 52SE’s with one broken drive unit in each, so one dead tweeter and one dead bass driver. The magnet has moved in the bass driver, twisting and jamming the cone fully back and the magnet has completely broken off on the […]

ACOUSTAT: What happened to them?

This is all I’ve been able to find: A manufacturer of electrostatic loudspeakers formed by designer James C. Strickland in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA in 1973. First product was shipped in 1976 in the form of the Model X, a hybrid electrostatic/dynamic loudspeaker that featured a built in valve based servo amplifier and a year […]

SPEAKERS: They should disappear, which seems impossible. The drivers are pointing straight at us!

Paul McGowan writes ….. Much to my surprise this fact, along with another—the soundstage should come from behind the loudspeaker—continually baffles people. I am at the Japan Audio show today and watched as two setup guys had the right combination of disappearing source and rear presentation, only to change placement to pinpoint the source and […]

HIGH END GEAR: What do you consider to be high end vintage gear?

I’m changing this around a little. I’ve decided to leave out turntables because there are already a few good threads on them. I am also leaving out integrated amps because I don’t want to go down that road. If you want to post integrated amps, please create a new thread. If you disagree with any […]

ANYTHING BUT MUSIC: Why do some speakers sound like music while others do not?

Michael Vronsky writes: Different isn’t automatically better I was trying to find the problem in a friend’s system. It didn’t sound as good as it should have for the money. So we did a lot of cable switching, speaker positioning, isolating this, isolating that – all to no avail. We certainly got different sounds, but […]

BUT DID YOU? So, got what you bargained for did you?

Michael Vronsky writes: Did we in the high-end buyers arena get what we bargained for when we chose the lowest price over service and advice? Dealers have always discounted. It’s implicit in the descriptive word ‘dealers’ i.e. ‘to deal’ Perhaps ‘retailer’ might be more appropriate? Anyway – even famous dealers may be obliged to offer […]
